For Dawn, this is her first championship under the WWE Umbrella. As a matter of fact, this is Dawn’s first championship win as a wrestler. Isla has been in the business for 10+ years debuting for Tidal Championship Wrestling, in addition to competing for Stardom and Pro Wrestling Eve before making her debut in WWE back in 2017 as an enhancement talent. Dawn would compete in the second Mae Young Classic losing to Indie Wrestling fixture in Nicole Matthews before being a part of NXT UK.
As for Fyre, this is her second title under the WWE umbrella, with her first being the historic longest reigning NXT UK Women’s Champions at 649 Days. Fyre, formerly known as Kay Lee Ray was a fixture of the British Wrestling scene as a part of Insane Championship Wrestling being a three-time Women’s Champion, in addition of being a former World of Sport Women’s Champion. Alba is one of the most accomplished women’s wrestlers in NXT despite being only 30 years of age.
Fyre and Dawn are the second Scottish duo to hold NXT Tag Team gold with Gallus being the first. The duo are also the fourth and fifth International Women to hold NXT Women’s Tag Gold (Indi Hartwell, Io Sky & Dakota Kai).
