3 Twists WWE could be planning for NXT this week
After a brilliant win at Survivor Series and a successful show last week, NXT will now look to keep up the same excitement about the product with their show tonight.
We already know that Rhea Ripley is squaring off against Dakota Kai, whereas Killian Dain and Damian Priest are once again gearing up to lock horns on the Black and Gold brand. Meanwhile, Adam Cole and the Undisputed Era are expected to address Finn Balor’s actions from last week.
Triple H has done a fantastic job with the brand so far and NXT is slowly making its way to the top of the pro-wrestling business. Their success at the battle of the brands followed by a good show last week helped establish the Black and Gold brand as a force to reckon with.
In order to top the ratings once again, NXT must be planning a few surprises for fans on tonight’s show. In this article, we will take a look at three possible twists that could happen on NXT this week.
#3 Shayna Baszler backs Dakota Kai against Rhea Ripley
Dakota Kai shocked the world with her heel turn at NXT Takeover: WarGames. After having left Rhea Ripley high and dry, she is now set to face the latter in a singles match tonight.
Ripley will look to avenge the betrayal that left her shorthanded against Shayna Baszler and her team in the first-ever Women’s WarGames match. But before that, Ripley had to make a choice between Mia Yim and Dakota Kai for the fourth member of her team. She chose Yim which prompted Kai to turn on her friends in their hour of need.
Incidentally, ahead of that, Baszler openly stated that Kai doesn’t deserve to be a part of the historic match. But currently, they are both feuding with Ripley who is quickly making her way to the top of the Women’s division.
It could be possible that tonight, we will see Baszler backing Kai against Ripley even though they have a long history of unpleasant encounters.
