Does payback await The Lady of NXT?
After dispatching Aliyah two weeks ago, Lacey Evans vowed to “clean house” on the NXT Women’s division, calling out NXT Women’s Champion Ember Moon and “classless psycho” Nikki Cross by name. Tonight, The Lady of NXT will get her chance to make good on her audacious promise when she battles the unhinged Cross one-on-one.
Though Evans’ decision to disparage the SAnitY member might appear foolish considering the target, there’s no mistaking Evans’ toughness, nor the power of her punch. (It was a right hook by Evans that floored Aliyah and enabled the former U.S. Marine to score the pin a fortnight ago.) Whether Evans’ potent offense is enough to disarm the unpredictable Cross, however, is another matter entirely.
Watch Cross and Evans square off tonight when NXT streams on WWE Network at 8/7 C.
