Rhea Ripley to face off with Raquel González in Last Woman Standing Match at NXT New Year’s Evil
After weeks of hostilities, Rhea Ripley will look to finally settle her longstanding issue with Raquel González in what promises to be a brutal showdown, as the powerful adversaries will lock horns in a Last Woman Standing Match at NXT New Year’s Evil.
The Nightmare and “Big Mami Cool” have warred with each other for months, with tensions reaching a boiling point more recently. The two were on opposite sides of an epic Women’s WarGames Match, where González scored the winning pinfall to establish her dominance.
A couple of weeks later, González also cost Ripley a loss to Toni Storm, interfering and sending Ripley shoulder-first into the ring post.
The Capitol Wrestling Center barely contained the two the next week, as they threw hands in a pull-apart brawl that only ended when approximately a dozen officials separated them.
What’s in store when these two rivals collide in a bout that can only end when one is no longer able to answer the referee’s 10 count? Find out at NXT New Year’s Evil, Jan. 6 at 8/7 C on USA Network!
Xia Li and Boa set to return this Wednesday night
Li and Boa were taken away by a mysterious man, apparently failing to meet an ultimatum delivered in cryptic letters after Li came up short in several matches. For weeks, both have been shrouded in secrecy, with the NXT Universe seeing only glimpses of their brutal training regimen led by that same man — and another unknown figure looking on.
Enigma aside, one thing that’s clear is that neither Superstar is likely to be the same. What can we expect to see when Xia Li and Boa are back on the black-and-gold brand this Wednesday night? And might we learn more about the mysterious figures they’ve been intertwined with?
