NXT has a big episode this week, with both the tag team championships and NXT women’s championships on the line. The matches for tonight were taped on February 1st 2017 from Full Sail University.
NXT Women’s Championship Match
Asuka (c) vs. Peyton Royce
Royce earned the right to face Asuka by defeating Liv Morgan and Ember Moon in a 3-way match last week. Receiving a title match on NXT is a big achievement for the 24-year old Royce, who had mainly been used to put over other superstars until she began pairing up with Billie Kay in recent months.
As for Asuka she has defended the title successfully 4 times since defeating Bayley at NXT Takeover: Dallas over WrestleMania weekend last year
NXT Tag Team Championship Match
Authors of Pain (c) vs. DIY
The Authors of Pain defeated DIY for the titles over Royal Rumble weekend in San Antonio, but Gargano and Ciampa have a chance to win them back on tonight’s show. If this feud is going to continue, DIY will need a win here.
