It has been officially confirmed that Rhea Ripley will defend the NXT UK Women’s Championship against 2018 Mae Young Classic winner Toni Storm in what will surely be one of the top matches at NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool.
Ripley won the title back at a television taping this past summer, but won’t technically be wearing the belt around her waist – at least where the company is concerned – until she wins it from Toni Storm in the finals of an ongoing tournament that will wrap up this coming Wednesday night.
