Bayley vs Asuka Made Official for NXT Takeover Back 2 Brooklyn (August, 11th 2016)


As of Tonight’s Episode of NXT, the expected and highly teased rematch between Former NXT Women’s Champion Bayley and the Current and Still Undefeated Current Women’s Champion Asuka is now official, per a contract signing that took place on the episode.

The Match comes weeks after NXTs resident babyface ran through the likes of hopeful contenders Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax, as well as own on screen comrade Carmella to define herself as an official future contender. During this time, Bayley has made it clear that she is heavily focused on blackening out the intimidating aura of the current title holder in order to avoid submitting to her again, looking to follow up The Revival by becoming another talent to hold NXT Gold Twice during their time in developmental. However Asuka remains undefeated as mentioned, and continuously proves in the ring to be a force to be reckoned with, as those even combated with her prior to her NXT run would know, with an additional ruthlessness as of late that Bayley has only just become aware of but tried to match. Regardless both challenger and champion currently showcase zero fear as they head towards Brooklyn, battling over the Divisions Gold in the Barclays Center, where Bayley had previously made history by dethroning the promoted now Women’s Champion Sasha Banks to capture her 1st NXT Women’s Title, a reign of which Asuka had managed to end via her lethal finishing submission months ago in Dallas.

Tune into NXT Takeover Back 2 Brooklyn on Saturday August 20th (Pre Summerslam) on the WWE Network to see whether Bayley can make history as the first ever 2x Women’s Champion, and in turn, end Asuka’s undefeated streak. Other Matches include Bobby Roode vs Andrade Cien Almas, The Debut of Ember Moon vs a Yet to be Known Opponent and Shinsuke Nakamura challenging Samoa Joe for the NXT Championship.
