NXT TakeOver: WarGames: NXT Women's Championship Fatal Fourway
At the very beginning of tonight's NXT episode, GM William Regal announced that the crowning of a new NXT Women's Champion would take place at the TakeOver event in Houston during Survivor Series weekend. The match will be a fatal fourway with three of the four women to be determined over the next few weeks via matches in which the winner gets a spot. As the winner of the Mae Young Classic, Kairi Sane automatically has a spot in the match.
Off the top of my head, the three most obvious choices are Ember Moon, Nikki Cross and Ruby Riot, though it's possible that at least one of them doesn't make the match. I'm all but positive Ember Moon makes it into the match as she's firmly established herself as the top name in the women's division now that Asuka is main roster bound. Possible alternatives are most likely either Payton Royce or Billie Kay.
I think the title is Ember Moon's to lose at this point. Kairi Sane suddenly coming in and winning the title might not sit well with some fans and result in a potential backlash but Triple H has shown himself to be quite good at reading these things in the 5 years he's been in charge of NXT.
