The NXT Women's Championship will be on the line in a triple threat match at New Year's Evil.
Mandy Rose will defend her NXT Women's Championship against Raquel Gonzalez and Cora Jade at New Year's Evil. It will be Rose's first title defense since winning the championship from Gonzalez at Halloween Havoc this October.
Rose defeated Gonzalez at Halloween Havoc following interference by Dakota Kai. At NXT WarGames earlier this month, Gonzalez, Jade, Io Shirai & Kay Lee Ray defeated Rose, Gigi Dolin, Jacy Jayne & Kai in the women's WarGames match.
Jade got the win at WarGames by pinning Jayne. Leading into WarGames, Jade defeated Rose in a non-title match.
Gonzalez defeated Kai in a street fight on NXT tonight. After the match, Gonzalez called out Rose and said she wanted an NXT Women's Championship rematch. But Jade made her way out to the ring instead. Jade said Gonzalez deserves a rematch, but she wants a match against Rose too. Jade said she wants Rose and the rest of Toxic Attraction to pay for hurting her shoulder at WarGames.
Rose appeared on the video screen and said Gonzalez and Jade are both envious of her. Rose said that, since she's in the holiday spirit, she'll defend her NXT Women's Championship against Gonzalez and Jade in a triple threat match at New Year's Evil. Dolin and Jayne then attacked Gonzalez and Jade, putting Gonzalez through a table.
New Year's Evil will be the first NXT episode of 2022. It's airing live on USA Network on Tuesday, January 4. Here's the updated card for the show:
- NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa defends against Bron Breakker
