In what is easily the biggest match of her young career, Bianca Belair will challenge the “Queen of Spades” Shayna Baszler for the NXT Women’s Championship on the biggest stage the self-proclaimed “EST of NXT” has ever seen — NXT Takeover: Phoenix.
It has also been confirmed that Aleister Black will finally get the opportunity he has been clamoring for since losing his title earlier this year, as he will go one-on-one with Tommaso Ciampa at the black-and-yellow brand’s upcoming event on Jan. 26th.
We’ll see if that singles match actually takes place, as it wouldn’t be the first time a match between Ciampa and Black turned into a triple threat. NXT television has been teasing the involvement of Johnny Gargano, and perhaps a reunion of DIY. There’s also Velveteen Dream to consider, who has been missing since losing to Black at NXT Takeover: WarGames.
