Rhea Ripley has been on the road to redemption since her WrestleMania stumble. Can she complete her journey and defeat Io Shirai to regain the NXT Women’s Championship?
While The Nightmare suffered one of her biggest setbacks in losing the title to Charlotte Flair earlier this year, Shirai has launched herself to superstardom since overcoming Flair and Ripley in a Triple Threat Match at NXT TakeOver: In Your House.
As champion, The Genius of the Sky has also conquered a formidable list of challengers, including Candice LeRae, Tegan Nox and Dakota Kai, in addition to a non-title victory over Sasha Banks.
Meanwhile, Ripley has been grinding her way back up the mountain to earn this opportunity, most notably vanquishing fellow powerhouses Mercedes Martinez and Raquel González.
Will Ripley become a two-time NXT Women’s Champion, or simply become Shirai’s latest conquest?
