NXT TakeOver: Chicago Pre-Show Coverage – May 20, 2017

A video package recapped the build to the NXT Women’s Championship triple-threat, with Asuka interfering in the #1 Contender’s Battle Royal, Ember Moon’s injury taking her out of the match, and the subsequent brawls between the remaining ladies involved: Asuka, Ruby Riot, and Nikki Cross. Asuka vowed to remain champion forever.

Back at the panel, Ember Moon joins them. She says that she’s disappointed to not be involved in the match, but looking back she’s thankful her injury wasn’t worse. Ember continues that whether Asuka is champion or not coming out of tonight, she will get her revenge on her.
