It was recently announced that next week’s February 14th episode of WWE NXT will feature Pete Dunne defending the WWE UK Championship against Roderick Strong.
In addition to the UK title being on the line, NXT Women’s Champion Ember Moon has agreed to defend her title in a blockbuster rematch during next week’s show. Her opponent? The MMA trailblazer Shayna Baszler, who almost broke the champ’s arm in half at last month’s unforgettable NXT Takeover: Philadelphia. WWE has officially confirmed the match.
Aleister Black will also make his NXT television return next week, after being out of action for the last two weeks selling the effects of his recent Extreme Rules victory over the Undisputed Era’s leader Adam Cole. Black was named the 2017 NXT Male Competitor of the Year at Takeover: Philadelphia, and has been picking up some huge victories one after another. Rumor has it he’ll be claiming his place at the front of the line for Andrade Cien Almas and the NXT Championship.
