Satomura set to challenge Ray on incredible edition of NXT UK
On a must-see edition of NXT UK, Meiko Satomura is set to challenge NXT UK Women’s Champion Kay Lee Ray in what is arguably the most-anticipated title rematch in the brand’s history.
The Best in the World came within an eyelash of dethroning “The Forever Champion” in their first championship encounter in March, but Ray persevered by clobbering Satomura with her second Gory Bomb of the match to retain.
Champion and challenger shared an emotional embrace after the epic encounter, but that sportsmanship was nowhere to be found when Satomura pinned Isla Dawn and Jinny in a Gauntlet Match to earn another championship match. Instead, Ray hit the scene and bowed to Satomura, but when The Final Boss returned the sign of respect, she was met with a swift kick to the head.
With animosity at an all-time high, who will prevail in a battle between two of NXT UK’s most dangerous competitors?
Additionally, more than two years into his reign, NXT UK Champion WALTER will address the NXT UK Universe. Over the past several months, The Ring General retained his title in barnburners against the likes of Rampage Brown, A-Kid and Ilja Dragunov. Will a new contender emerge?
Plus, Saxton Huxley is primed to square off with Jordan Devlin, while Dan Moloney and Andy Wild will join forces against Symbiosis.
