Martial arts expert Karmen Petrovic became the next Superstar to advance in the NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament by defeating Jaida Parker in the first round.
Both Petrovic and Parker proved that they belonged in an NXT ring, but the combat skills of the third-degree black belt proved to be the difference as she locked in a dynamic submission to advance in the tournament.
Lyra Valkyria def. Tegan Nox
Lyra Valkyria proved her worth by defeating a very game Tegan Nox just a week before challenging Becky Lynch for the NXT Women’s Championship.

Arianna Grace def. Brinley Reece
Arianna Grace is back in the win column as she defeated Brinley Reece in the first round of the NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament.
NXT’s resident beauty queen impressed in her first match on NXT since suffering an injury, defeating Reece thanks to a sneaky rake to the eyes and an impressive twisting slam.
