Not to mention that there has never been a two time NXT Women's Champion before, and most people are relieved that Shayna's reign is over with.

The only people who want her to regain the title are the Fightful staff. And that's because they all fucking love MMA stuff.

Kairi is going to retain the title against Shayna if they do a rematch (The match at Brooklyn was hammered home as their rubber match, and it seemed pretty final). I think its more likely Shayna gets her rematch on TV, loses, and does something else at Evolution. Bianca will probably jump Kairi after the match, setting up their feud for Evolution. The winner of the MYC 2 will probably get a match at War Games.
I though one of the finalist was in contract with NXT UK ? so normally she shouldn't be able to go for the belt of kairi

Re: NXT Weekly Show Discussion Thread [NO SPOILERS BEFORE THE SHOWS AIR PLEASE]

It would be a really bad idea for the MYC2 winner to get a title shot so soon. War Games is only three weeks later. You only have two options - either hot shot the winner to the title prematurely, or cancel all the momentum she has for winning the tournament in nearly an instant.

There's also no rule that says the winner of the tournament gets an immediate title shot, nor did they hype it up any. Probably the only reason Kairi got the shot last year was because Asuka vacated the title and they did a fatal four way where she could be protected.

Re: NXT Weekly Show Discussion Thread [NO SPOILERS BEFORE THE SHOWS AIR PLEASE]

Considering the original plan for the MYC 2 finals was to make it for the UK Women's title, I can easily see them making it so the winner gets an NXT Women's Title shot instead. They could have easily excluded Kairi from the title hunt last year if they wanted to, but opted to give her a match anyways. No reason to think they couldn't do the same this year.

It's worth noting that while Ronda vs Alexa got a lot of mainstream coverage for obvious reasons (Ronda won the title), that Kairi vs Shayna also got a lot of coverage for showing off the heights (and limits as a negative point) that women can achieve in WWE.

Yeah but they gave Kairi an opportunity because it was fatal four way. I don't think the winner of the MYC will have a match if it's a 1vs1

Yeah, and I'm saying they didn't need to add her into that match. But they did anyways. No reason to believe the winner of the MYC 2 won't get a title match either.

Yep. The Bruiserweight in action tonight.

Can't wait to see him in the War Games match in November, because that's where they're headed.

Was ringside at Takeover, and without spoiling anything, the Dunne/Gibson match was fucking awesome.
