Despite having every single obstacle imaginable thrown in her direction, Io Shirai was able to overcome the odds and retain her NXT Women’s Championship against Dakota Kai.

Kai has improved massively over the course of the last few months, and she had many people believing that she was going to walk out of TakeOver with the belt last night.

Alas, it wasn’t meant to be, as Shirai continued her reign at the top of the women’s division.

It appears as if Io is going to have her hands full with Rhea Ripley waiting around the next corner to try and reclaim the belt, but we can’t imagine that’s going to scare her all too much.

She’s been on one hell of a roll herself, and that isn’t going to change anytime soon.
