WWE sets date for KLR vs. Satomura NXT UK Women's title match


WWE has set a date for Kay Lee Ray and Meiko Satomura's NXT UK Women's Championship match.

KLR will defend her NXT UK Women's Championship against Satomura on the NXT UK episode that airs in two weeks (Thursday, March 4). KLR and Satomura both took part in a press conference segment on NXT UK this week ahead of their title match.

KLR has been NXT UK Women's Champion since winning the title from Toni Storm in August 2019. Following her title defense against Jinny last month, KLR said she's beaten everyone who's been put in front of her and wants to face "The best in the world." KLR said during this week's press conference that Satomura was exactly who she meant when she said that.

It was announced last month that the legendary Satomura has signed with WWE and has joined NXT UK. She made her NXT UK in-ring debut by defeating Isla Dawn on last week's NXT UK episode.

Satomura also took part in the 2018 Mae Young Classic and has guest coached at the WWE Performance Center in the past.

During the press conference for their title match, Satomura said KLR calling herself a champion without facing her is a lightweight way of thinking. KLR pointed out that she's the longest-reigning Women's Champion in modern WWE history and said she can defeat Satomura.
