Fallon Henley and Nikkia Lyons have advanced in the NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament.
Tonight’s episode of NXT saw the start of the tournament. Henley defeated Sloane Jacobs in the first match, scoring the win following a shining wizard. Later in the show, Lyons defeated Arriana Grace, getting the win following a leaping leg drop.
Based on the brackets, Lyons will face Henley in the semifinals. The two remaining matches of the opening round will have Roxanne Perez taking on Kiana James and Lash Legend facing Tatum Paxley. The winners of those two matches will advance to the semifinals.
Lyons has been featured on NXT in recent months, most recently feuding with Lash Legend. Lyons teamed with Cora Jade to defeat Legend and Natalya on the May 5 edition of NXT. Henley has been associated with the tag team of Josh Briggs and Brooks Jensen, first appearing as a bartender in a bar they were in and later shown in backstage segments with the team.
