Io Shirai & Dakota Kai get their crack at Marina Shafir & Jessamyn Duke
After a scuffle at NXT TakeOver: WarGames II, Io Shirai & Dakota Kai will battle Marina Shafir & Jessamyn Duke in what’s sure to be a heated tag team contest on Dec. 19.
Both sides have been at each other’s throats since WarGames II, where they collided during Shayna Baszler’s NXT Women’s Title defense against Kairi Sane. Tensions grew further on the Dec. 5 edition of NXT when Shafir and Duke joined Baszler to inflict a beatdown on The Captain of Team Kick, which was eventually thwarted by Shirai.
Now there will be no disadvantages in the way as Shirai & Kai look to serve Shafir & Duke their comeuppance in a long-awaited tag team match. Will Shirai & Kai find redemption? Or will Shafir & Duke, two highly decorated former MMA fighters and cohorts of Baszler and Ronda Rousey in the Four Horsewomen, leave a lasting impression in their NXT debut?
