Kay Lee Ray def. Toni Storm to capture the NXT UK Women’s Championship
Kay Lee Ray earned her opportunity to challenge her one-time friend Toni Storm for the NXT UK Women’s Title by surviving the first-ever NXT UK Women’s Battle Royal, but the devious challenger waged war against the titleholder with a series of anything-goes mind games in the weeks leading to TakeOver, throwing their friendship out the window.
From the start, Storm had a different look in her eye in the highly personal showdown, as she attempted to make Ray pay for her words in recent weeks. The crafty Ray roared back, however, and the fiery showdown featured no shortage of haymakers and edge-of-your-seat moments, as Storm and Ray narrowly kicked out of each other’s finishing maneuver to the shock of the WWE Universe.
Ray came through in the clutch when she locked in the Widows Peak for the third time in the match and drove Storm’s face into the canvas to pick up the monumental three-count and become the new NXT UK Women’s Champion.
