Title bout added to NXT TakeOver: Phoenix, updated card

A title match has been added to WWE’s NXT TakeOver: Phoenix card. It was recently announced that Bianca Belair will be Shayna Baszler’s next challenger for the NXT Women’s Championship. Belair earned the opportunity on this week’s episode of NXT when she defeated Io Shirai, Mia Yim and Lacey Evans in a Fatal Four-Way to become the number one contender. NXT TakeOver: Phoenix will go down from the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona on January 26, 2019, during Royal Rumble weekend.

It is one of two matches confirmed for the card thus far. The other being Tommaso Ciampa defending his NXT Championship against Aleister Black. Check out the updated card below:

  • NXT Championship: (C) Tommaso Ciampa vs. Aleister Black
  • NXT Women’s Championship: (C) Shayna Baszler vs. Bianca Belair

With several more weeks to go before Royal Rumble weekend, the NXT TakeOver: Phoenix card should begin to take shape very soon.
