Rhea Ripley def. Bianca Belair

Rhea Ripley vs. Bianca Belair: WWE NXT, Oct. 23, 2019

The Nightmare clashes with The EST of NXT as the race to challenge NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler heats up.

They say the enemy of your enemy is your friend, and that holds true for Candice LeRae in the case of Io Shirai.

Rhea Ripley’s bout with Bianca Belair showcased two of the NXT Women's division's most powerful competitors trading tests of strength and athleticism. Neither was able to gain much of an advantage in the evenly matched bout until Shirai arrived to try to spoil things for Ripley, apparently not taking kindly to Ripley confronting her last week.

But LeRae also joined the scene to foil her bitter rival’s plans, taking out The Genius of The Sky at ringside. Meanwhile, "The Nightmare" finished off Belair with the Riptide following an astute counter. 

While all four women seemingly have their sights set on Shayna Baszler and the NXT Women’s Championship, Ripley may have seized the pole position with her latest victory. Regardless, there is no shortage of challengers ready to step to The Queen of Spades.
