Ya it's going to have to be a 3 way or 4 way or something match because Shayna is...still...champion.

I agree though. Get the damn belt off Shayna already. Don't even really care who at this point.

Io should've won it at the last Takeover

I made a thread on this and a lot you said booking heel vs heel is hard to pull but im telling you heel Io vs heel Shanya is possible to pull off.

I suggested that same thing yesterday. It would fucking rule. It'll never happen though.

I get that mindset, but if she does win the belt at Takeover 25, what motivation does she have to turn heel afterwards?

As frustrating as it is with Shayna being champion, the moment she lost that match at Takeover 25, they planted those seeds of a heel turn.

She wouldn't have needed to turn heel then right away, you get another Takeover period for a rematch with Shayna, where Candice could've screwed up something and Io could've turned heel on Candice then as Champ. Now they are stuck with a heel champ and their best option as a challenger being someone they just flipped heel.

You see I don't really agree with that because, again if Io wins at Takeover 25 with Candice's help most likely, what motivation does she have to turn?

She has the belt. She won the title with help from a friend. At that point, she's won. She has everything she believes she wants.

What caused the heel turn was the failure. And Candice, despite doing nothing wrong, was the person to blame in Io's eyes. I don't think you could turn Io (or least make good sense of it) if she's already champion.

To me its a pretty easy heel turn to write, Io's the champ now so she starts getting cocky and thinking she doesn't need friends and the success is more important than friends, etc etc.

Its a different story, but it works, to me anyways. It all really depends though on who the next challenger for Shayna ends up being, and how that goes.

I like the Io heel turn, so I'm definitely not arguing against it, but its just kind of left a hole in the NXT women's division for title contenders currently.

There are only two "credible" challengers at the moment, and that's stretching it because they have the same problem (if not worse) that Mia Yim has. Dakota Kai and Tegan Nox. One of whom was the absolute biggest geek on NXT for 1.5 years before she was injured in Dakota Kai, and Tegan Nox who has been injured for 95% of her WWE career, and was being rejected by audiences during the MYC II before her injury.
