Shayna Baszler vs Ember Moon for the NXT Womens Championship Set for NXT Takeover Philadelphia (January, 18th 2018)

As Confirmed on this weeks episode of WWE NXT, Ember Moons first Pay Per View Championship defense since winning the NXT Women’s Championship back in Houston has been set, and it will be against the most recent arrival in the NXT Women’s Division, Shayna Baszler.

Baszler of former UFC Stardom debuted in NXT at the end of December last year, already familiar to a WWE audience due to her performance in the Mae Young Classic where she reached the inaugural tournaments final before being overcome by Kairi Sane, who she hurt upon debuting in December. Since then Shayna has fearlessly gone out of her way to exploit the submission that has damaged the likes of other women’s superstars in NXT and it has been noticed very much by NXTs current women’s champion, Ember Moon, who became sick of the behavior to the point where she called out Baszler for targeting Aliyah following her match with Lacey Evans on this Past Wednesdays Episode. The confrontation, which lead to no physicality, instead lead to William Regal booking the match as Moon so wanted, at NXT Takeover Philadelphia over the Women’s Championship.

Will Baszler end Moons chance to follow up in Asukas footsteps? Or Will Moon Survive the Rough and Tough Baszler and award her her first loss in NXT? Find out when NXT Takeover Philadelphia airs on Saturday 27th January at 1am UK Time Live on the WWE Network. Other Matches include the Authors of Pain vs the Undisputed Era for the NXT Tag Team Championship and Andrade Cien Almas defending the NXT Championship against Johnny Gargano.
