NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler def. Candice LeRae

Shayna Baszler vs. Candice LeRae – NXT Women’s Championship Match: WWE NXT, Oct. 2, 2019

Tenacious C looks to end the dominant reign of The Submission Magician during NXT’s live two-hour premiere on USA.

Shayna Baszler isn't surrendering her mantle as the longest currently reigning champ anytime soon if she has anything to say about it

Baszler closed the deal on another successful NXT Women’s Title defense, this time overcoming the plucky Candice LeRae, who was more than ready for her big chance. 

LeRae rattled The Queen of Spades in the early going, knocking her silly with a thunderous enziguri and a springboard plancha. Baszler found her way back into the match with the same viciousness that has made her such a dominant champion, stomping LeRae's left elbow against the steel steps. 

Tenacious C fought back with a DDT that spiked Baszler's head into the apron, followed by three tope suicidas that left Baszler dazed. But when she tried to finish off the champion with a springboard moonsault, The Submission Magician slipped out of the way and locked LeRae into the Kirifuda Clutch. LeRae struggled to get free to no avail and was left with no choice but to eventually tap out. 

The NXT Women’s Division is brimming with worthy challengers, but none so far have shown the mettle needed to dethrone Baszler. With her reign closing in on a year, who will step up next to try to stop her?
