WWE NXT TakeOver: XXX – Io Shirai vs. Dakota Kai, big staredown after the match

In the semi-main event at WWE NXT TakeOver: XXX, Io Shirai put her NXT Women’s Championship on the line against Dakota Kai, with Raquel Gonzalez in her corner.

This was a fast-paced match and several near falls, as is usually the case with Takeover matches. Late in the match, Shirai hit a double stomp off the top rope on Kai, who was hanging by her feet on the ropes but Kai was able to kick out of the pin attempt.

Kai was able to lock in an armbar submission and it looked like Shirai was about to tap out but the hold had to be broken when Shirai got her foot on the bottom rope. Shirai took over on offense after Kai accidentally kicked the ref in the head. Shirai hit a moonsault but the ref was knocked out to make the count.

Raquel Gonzalez got in the ring and she slammed Shirai in the center of the ring. Gonzalez woke up the ref so he could make the count but Shirai kicked out. Shirai was able to reverse thins on Kai into a crossface as the groggy ref began to get up. Shirai then hit a moonsault onto Gonzalez and Kai at ringside. Shirai followed up with a moonsault in the ring on Kai and that was enough for the pin and the win.

Gonzalez attacked Shirai after the match but then Rhea Ripley came out and then there was a staredown. Gonzalez backed off as Shirai’s music played.
