LeRae joins Shirai in tag action against Horsewomen’s Duke & Shafir
Io Shirai & Candice LeRae are overcome with rage directed toward The Horsewomen, and Jessamyn Duke & Marina Shafir must deal with that fury tonight when the two sides square off in tag team competition.
Tenacious C & The Genius of the Sky formed a bond after being targeted by Duke, Shafir and NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler in separate incidents. The alliance has already proven beneficial: Shirai saved LeRae from a three-on-one beating last month, and LeRae returned the favor at TakeOver: XXV, when she prevented Duke & Shafir from interfering in the NXT Women’s Title Match between Baszler and Shirai. Although Shirai felt short of victory at TakeOver, she revealed an uncharacteristically vicious side of herself as she battered Baszler with a Kendo stick and steel chair after the bell.
Will Duke & Shafir be prepared for Shirai & LeRae’s combined firepower? To find out, tune in to NXT when it streams tonight at 8/7 C on the award-winning WWE Network.
