Going into the Mae Young Classic finale, there was speculation that the winner would be awarded the vacant NXT Women’s Championship. However, that was not the case but wasn’t long after the show that we got to find out what the plans were for the title.Triple H told ESPN that Sane would challenge for NXT Women’s Championship at NXT Takeover on November 18 in Houston. That show will take place on the night before the Survivor Series pay-per-view.
Triple H said, “I can tell you what’s next for her… On Nov. 18 at the Toyota Center at the next NXT TakeOver, Kairi will be fighting to determine a new NXT women’s champion.”
It’s not clear yet how they will determine who Sane will face but the rumors within WWE are that they will hold a tournament beginning at the next set of NXT TV tapings so that could be how they determine who will be Sane’s opponent. The tapings (as of now) are scheduled for Thursday night at Full Sail University.
