WWE has announced a match for their upcoming NXT episode. Rhea Ripley will be facing Toni Storm. This will be their first match, since their match at NXT TakeOver WarGames.
On the WarGames, Candice LeRae’s team defeated Shotzi Blackheart’s team. While Storm was a part of LeRae’s team, Ripley represented team Blackheart in the match. This is going to tbe the fifth instance, where Ripley will be facing Storm on WWE NXT.
Storm and Ripley were involved in an assault on last week’s NXT. Raquel Gonzalez defeated Ember Moon in their single’s match. After the match, Storm double teamed with Gonzalez to attack Moon. Ripley made the save by attacking Gonzalez and Storm. This led to the announcement of this match.
First non-title match between Ripley and Storm
This might be the fifth time that Rhea Ripley and Toni Storm are having a one-on-one match. But, this is the first instance where the match involves none of the WWE title.
The other four instances, where these two have fought included NXT Women’s Championship or the NXT UK Women’s Championship. Their most recent bout was in January. They faced each other at Worlds Collide for the NXT Women’s Championship.
Both the wrestlers have two wins and as many losses against each other. WWE Universe loves these two in the ring, because of their different wrestling styles. While Ripley is more attacking in her approach, Storm is known for her resourcefulness. Undoubtedly, fans will be excited to see them feuding again on WWE NXT.
