There was a big match to cap off the tapings last night as Shayna Baszler successfully defended her NXT Women’s Title against Io Shirai in a cage match. This was brutal match and saw a couple very impressive spots.
After the match was over, Io Shirai beat down Candice LeRae while claiming that the loss was Mrs Johnny Wrestling’s fault.
Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that this was a heel turn and they couldn’t have picked a better person to beat down. Because everyone loves Candice LeRae.
Therefore, it appears that Io Shirai is now a heel. As for who could be facing Shayna Baszler in Toronto, we will have to wait and see, Keep checking back with Ringside News and we will have complete coverage of tonight’s NXT television tapings.
