They have a plan for that. NXT has been around for a rather long time now and it continues to occupy one of the most unique places in all of wrestling. While it serves as the official WWE developmental territory and its main purpose is to get wrestlers ready for the main roster, it also serves as its own promotion, meaning things need to happen to keep up the interest. Now we might know what WWE has in mind.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, there has been talk of having Nikkita Lyons win the NXT Women’s Title. However, this is not expected to take place in the near future but rather a long time down the road. Lyons recently returned from an injury and has been talking about the title in recent weeks. Mandy Rose is the reigning NXT Women’s Champion and successfully defended the title against Roxanne Perez this week.
Opinion: I can absolutely see why WWE would want to make such a move as Lyons is one of the most unique stars that they have in NXT. That kind of status is something that is going to get eyes on you and it seems to be the case with Lyons. I could see her being the next big thing in the division and that is something that WWE would want to build up long term, as they seem to be doing.
What do you think of Lyons? When should she win the title? Let us know in the comments below.
