Following Tuesday’s Mae Young Classic finals, WWE’s chief operating officer Paul Levesque, Triple H, spoke with ESPN about the event. He also announced that the winner of the tournament — Kairi Sane — will challenge for the vacant NXT Championship at the NXT Takeover: Houston event in November.
“[I’m] very excited that she’s the first champion, and now the question is ‘What’s next for her?’ I can tell you what’s next for her. On Nov. 18 at the Toyota Center at the next NXT TakeOver, Kairi will be fighting to determine a new NXT women’s champion.”
Prior to the finals, many thought that the winner of the tournament would end up becoming the new NXT Women’s Champion.
As of this writing, we don’t know who Kairi Sane will face in November.
