Kairi Sane, Bianca Belair to square off on April 3 edition of NX...

Two days before they join NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler and Io Shirai in an every-woman-for-herself Fatal 4-Way Match for the title at TakeOver: New York, Kairi Sane and Bianca Belair will meet in singles action on the April 3 edition of NXT.

NXT General Manager William Regal announced the match on Twitter, in response to Belair’s backstage confrontation with Sane last Wednesday on NXT.

The NXT Universe still remembers the last time The Princess Pirate squared off with The EST of NXT on WWE Network, in one of the most unforgettable matches of the inaugural Mae Young Classic. Since then, both Superstars have only grown as competitors, with Sane now a former NXT Women’s Champion and Belair adopting an un-de-fea-ted mindset that has propelled her to new heights.

Will Sane or Belair add to her momentum heading into TakeOver with an all-important win on Wednesday, April 3? Find out when NXT streams on WWE Network at 8/7 C.

Heavy is the head that wears the crown. Although no one knows that age-old saying better than NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler, she, too, will be reminded of that adage when she takes on her toughest challenge yet at TakeOver: New York.

As announced by NXT General Manager William Regal, The Queen of Spades will defend her coveted crown against Io Shirai, Bianca Belair and Kairi Sane in what is sure to be a heated Fatal 4-Way Match.

Baszler has held the title since October at WWE Evolution, where she defeated Sane to become the first-ever two-time NXT Women’s Champion. Since then, The Submission Magician has been hellbent on guarding her lofty prize, as displayed in her underhanded tactics in championship bouts against Sane at TakeOver: WarGames II and Belair at TakeOver: Phoenix. Now, she’ll have to face them both, plus Shirai, in a match where she doesn’t have to be pinned or submitted to lose her title.

Shirai has had her sights set on the NXT Women’s Championship since she scored a pin over Baszler during the Feb. 6 edition of NXT, which saw her team up with Sane and Belair in a Six-Woman Tag Team Match against Baszler, Jessamyn Duke & Marina Shafir. But Shirai’s golden ambitions are nothing compared to the sheer animosity that Sane and Belair both have toward the champion. Where The Pirate Princess is eager on getting retribution, The EST of NXT is intent on snatching The Queen of Spades off her throne.

Can Baszler escape the Big Apple with her NXT Women’s Title? Or will the NXT Universe witness the dawn of a new era? Don’t miss Shayna Baszler defend her NXT Women’s Championship against Io Shirai, Bianca Belair and Kairi Sane in a Fatal 4-Way Match at NXT TakeOver: New York, streaming live Friday, April 5, on the award-winning WWE Network.

NXT Preview: Belair & The Sky Pirates battle Baszler, Shafi...
Published by: |   (0) Comments      Read MORE      Filed Under: NXT, Preview, WWE.com

The most searing vendettas in the NXT Women’s division will coalesce this Wednesday when Bianca Belair joins forces with Kairi Sane & Io Shirai to battle NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler, Marina Shafir & Jessamyn Duke in a high-octane Six-Woman Tag Team Match.

After suffering a defeat at the hands of Sane & Shirai last week, Shafir & Duke are looking to even the score against the duo known as The Sky Pirates. Belair, meanwhile, is still searching for payback from The Queen of Spades and the Four Horsewomen’s “ground soldiers,” who, let it not be forgotten, stuck their noses in The EST of NXT’s championship match against Baszler at TakeOver: Phoenix.

Will Belair’s nascent alliance with The Pirate Princess and The Genius of the Sky hold up under the crushing power of Baszler, Shafir & Duke, or will the Horsewomen, who are teaming together for the first time on NXT TV, stampede their way to victory?
