Triple threat Women's title match set for NXT TakeOver: In Your House

The NXT Women's Championship will officially be on the line in a triple threat match at TakeOver: In Your House.

WWE announced via TVGuide.com today that Charlotte Flair will defend her NXT Women's Championship against Rhea Ripley and Io Shirai in a triple threat match at the Sunday, June 7 TakeOver special. The announcement comes after Charlotte interrupted Ripley vs. Shirai in the main event of NXT this week and laid both of them out.

Her match against Shirai on NXT this Wednesday was this first time Ripley has wrestled since losing the NXT Women's Championship to Charlotte at WrestleMania 36. WWE has been building to the triple threat match since Ripley made her return to NXT television after Charlotte got disqualified in a title defense against Shirai on the May 6 episode of NXT.

"Having the opportunity to be in the ring with two of the brightest stars, in my opinion, who have just started their future... I'm really excited to be a part of it," Charlotte told TV Guide.

Tommaso Ciampa vs. Karrion Kross is the only other match that's been officially announced for NXT TakeOver: In Your House so far. Damian Priest cut a promo challenging Finn Balor to a match at the special on NXT this week, and NXT North American Champion Keith Lee also issued a challenge to Johnny Gargano.

On tonight's SmackDown, Charlotte will face SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley in a non-title champion vs. champion match.
