Kairi Sane Gets Her Shot At The NXT Women’s Title

As we all saw earlier tonight, Kairi Sane won the inaugural Mae Young Classic, defeating Shayna Baszler in the finals.

Triple H announced after the match was over that Kairi would be getting a shot at the vacated NXT Women’s Title at NXT TakeOver: Houston.

“[I’m] very excited that she’s the first champion, and now the question is ‘What’s next for her?’ I can tell you what’s next for her. On Nov. 18 at the Toyota Center at the next NXT TakeOver, Kairi will be fighting to determine a new NXT women’s champion.”

We reported earlier tonight that the rumor was that the winner of the tournament would compete in a multi-woman match to crown the new champion, and now, that appears to be the case.
