Women's title match set for NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff

A Women's title match has been made official for NXT UK's next TakeOver special.

NXT UK Women's Champion Toni Storm will defend her title against Kay Lee Ray at UK TakeOver: Cardiff on Saturday, August 31. The announcement was made on this week's NXT UK television episode.

KLR was set up as Storm's next challenger by winning a number one contender's battle royal last month. KLR then attacked Candy Floss on last week's NXT UK episode after Storm defeated Candy Floss in a non-title match.

Storm cut a promo on this week's show and mentioned how KLR took her under her wing when Storm first moved to the United Kingdom. She said KLR doesn't have to attack anyone to get her attention, she's ready when KLR is. KLR came out and teased facing Storm this week, but she said she'll make Storm wait until Cardiff. KLR vowed to make Storm's life a living hell until then.

TakeOver: Cardiff is NXT UK's second TakeOver special. Storm became NXT UK Women's Champion by defeating Rhea Ripley at the first special in Blackpool this January.

Storm vs. KLR is the first match to be confirmed for UK TakeOver: Cardiff.
