WWE NXT Full Match Card:

  • NXT Women’s Championship Match: Roxanne Perez (c) vs. Chelsea Green
  • Singles Match: Wes Lee vs. Josh Briggs
  • NXT Women’s North American Championship Combine

Chelsea Green Challenges For Roxanne Perez’s Championship

The trend of main roster Superstars making their way to NXT continues this week as former Women’s Tag Team Champion Chelsea Green makes a trip of her own to the WWE Performance Center. She will be challenging for Roxanne Perez‘s NXT Women’s Championship. Perez has just crossed 30 days into her second reign as the titleholder, and it has already been quite the challenging reign.

Green is yet to win a singles championship in her WWE career and she sees an opportunity in NXT. The NXT women’s division is seeing people need to make statements at any given chance, so as to stay afloat and this match can be expected to do the same.

Wes Lee Returns To The Ring Against Josh Briggs

Wes Lee made his triumphant return to NXT on the second week of the Spring Breakin’ special. Despite being on the verge of being forced to consider retirement, Lee made his return and he already has his eyes set on the prize. Having the longest reign of the title at 269 days, Lee has set his sight on the NXT North American Championship.
The only problem is the man currently holding it – Oba Femi. Having had one of the most dominant climbs to success, Femi has a stronghold on the title, already having the ninth-longest reign at 118 days. Before he gets to the champion, Lee will get back into the swing of things by taking on Josh Briggs on the May 7 edition of NXT.

NXT Women’s North American Championship Combine

The future of the NXT Women’s North American Championship has been made clear. The title will be the cornerstone of this year’s Battleground event, which is set to take place at the UFC APEX. Six NXT Superstars will get the chance to compete in the ladder match to be crowned the inaugural titleholder.

Before that, 12 of the NXT women’s division will have to prove themselves as the best and worthy of singles action to inch closer to the ladder match. The NXT Women’s North American Championship Combine will pit the division’s best against each other, and only the best 12 will get to be a step closer to becoming the first champion.
