NXT Preview (5/30/18)

NXT this week will be a taped down from Full Sail University in Florida. The main event will feature an NXT Women’s Championship match. Shayna Baszler will defend her title against Dakota Kai.

    Shayna Baszler (c) vs Dakota Kai

    • While this might seem like a big opportunity for the challenger, she has been rather intimidated by the champion in recent weeks.
    • Last week, Dakota appeared determined to conquer her fears and get in the ring with Baszler, however. Behind the scenes, Nikki Cross is said to be driving Kai’s new found confidence.
    • What will happen when Kai finally gets in the ring to conquer her fears, however, won’t be known until tonight.
    • Tonight we will find out who goes into Takeover: Chicago as the champion and will likely find out more about who will be the challenger on that show.
