She's doomed anyway, look at what they did with Asuka.

She doomed on the main roster.

That was my favourite Takeover match last night. To be fair I always knew Io was quality and she does ooze Charisma, but I was wowed by Candice. Always liked her but always thought she'd be one of those mediocre, average girls on the roster. She definitely kept up with Io last night and has some great moves in her arsenal

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.
Something like that definitely could have worked.

But I think this version of Io, at least starting out, is better with having a chip on her shoulder. Having to work for something she believes is hers. Plus, what you're suggest was kind of already done by Asuka to an extent.

They could easily do heel Io vs heel Shayna as the crowd are going to cheer for awesome unhinged arrogant Io anyway. Get it booked.

I never really paid attention to Io before her heel turn...but damn she's got my attention now.

Good stuff...low key cutie too.

I had a feeling after Shayna dropped the title Dakota would be So Shauna's last match, be overcoming her fear.

I agree I'd like to see that story conclude, some Babyface redemption

I don't see Dakota being the one either. She's spent the last 1.5 years jobbing to every other woman on the roster pretty much. She would be in the same boat as Mia Yim. Except probably even worse off.

Plus you have to factor in with all of the time and energy they are pouring into Io's character right now, she's gonna be champion sooner or later. So Dakota dethroning Shayna may be fine for now, but odds are incredibly high she will get completely murdered soon after for the title.

It's not if but when with Io. At this point Shayna is just a lame duck champ. I don't know how they get there nor do I care that much as long as they do. Her reign is already getting overshadowed by the Io stuff.

She'd be incredibly lucky to even get half as much as Asuka got on the main roster. Some white chicks on the roster who've been around since 2016-2017 are still waiting for their first title match.

Well, she is only 29. I mean if you stick around long enough maybe you get your Kofi Time. So maybe 2028
