The women's Dusty Classic winners threw a wrench into the plans for NXT Stand & Deliver last night.
Io Shirai & Kay Lee Ray were crowned as the winners of the 2022 women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, defeating Dakota Kai & Wendy Choo in the finals on last night's NXT. When confronted by Toxic Attraction after the match, Shirai and KLR revealed that they aren't cashing in their title shot for an NXT Women's Tag Team title match -- they're going after Mandy Rose's NXT Women's Championship.
Rose will defend her title against Cora Jade, Shirai, and KLR in a fatal four-way match at NXT Stand & Deliver on Saturday, April 2. Jade helped Shirai and KLR even the odds in a brawl against Toxic Attraction to close last night's show.
Bron Breakker is challenging Dolph Ziggler for the NXT Championship at Stand & Deliver. Last night, Breakker defeated Ziggler's tag team partner Robert Roode in a singles match. Ziggler then laid out Breakker with a superkick on the ramp after the match was over.
Solo Sikoa and Grayson Waller became the latest wrestlers to qualify for the NXT North American Championship ladder match at Stand & Deliver. Carmelo Hayes will defend his title against Santos Escobar, Sikoa, Waller, and one more challenger to be determined. Cameron Grimes, Roderick Strong, and A-Kid are facing off in a last-chance qualifying match next Tuesday.
Plus, Gunther vs. LA Knight was added to the card for Stand & Deliver.
