NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai takes on Zoey Stark in non-title contest
Zoey Stark turned in an eye-grabbing performance in her NXT debut, and William Regal took notice.
The NXT General Manager is rewarding Stark with a non-title bout against NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai tomorrow night.
Stark decimated Valentina Feroz last week in her first action on the black-and-gold brand, but the difficulty will ramp up against one of the greatest NXT Women’s Champions of all time.
Shirai is coming off another impressive title defense, prevailing over Toni Storm and Mercedes Martinez in a Triple Threat Match at NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day. The Genius of the Sky might be looking over her shoulder, though, after Storm ambushed Shirai during a photoshoot last week.
Don’t miss Shirai in action against Stark, tomorrow night at 8/7 C on USA Network!
Kacy Catanzaro to square off with Xia Li
Xia Li has looked nearly unbeatable thanks to Tian Sha’s teachings, but Li has also undergone a dark transformation. Does Kacy Catanzaro have any hope of reaching her former friend, or for that matter, even surviving when they go one on one?
Under the leadership of Mei Ying, Li hasn’t lost, making short work of opponents while showcasing unbridled intensity and a newfound aggression.
Catanzaro and tag team partner Kayden Carter tried to talk some sense into Li, who responded by launching Carter off the Capitol Wrestling Center stage and delivering a devastating spinning heel kick to Catanzaro.
Last week, Li cryptically marked Catanzaro’s hand and promised to “purge” her.
Will Li continue her dominance, or will Catanzaro be the one to slow her down? Find out this Wednesday night at 8/7 C on USA Network!
