Io Shirai wins the NXT Women’s Championship at NXT TakeOver: In Your House

Io Shirai Wins The NXT Women's ChampionshipThe coronation has begun as my favourite Io Shirai finally won the NXT Women’s Championship at NXT TakeOver: In Your House. 

Io Shirai challenged Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley in a Triple Threat Match for the NXT Women’s Title. This match was the highlight of the show and showcased the athleticism and talented in the NXT Women’s Division. Both Charlotte and Ripley are terrific wrestlers and were former champions. 

However, this was Io Shirai moment to shine and that’s what she did. The big spot of the match came when Shirai climbed the roof of the stage and delivered an amazing flying crossbody to Charlotte and Ripley showing everyone why she’s called the Genius of the Sky.

The finish of the match saw Charlotte have Ripley placed in the Figure-8-Leg Lock. That’s when my favourite Io Shirai climbed the turnbuckle and delivered her signature Moonsault to Ripley as the referee counted the 1,2,3. This was the first NXT Women’s TakeOver main event since 2015 where Bayley defended the NXT Women’s Title against Sasha Banks in a 30-minute Iron Women’s Match at NXT TakeOver: Respect. 

Before coming over to WWE, Shirai was awarded the Tokyo Sports Puroresu Award from 2015-2017. This is Shirai’s first championship win in WWE. Congratulations to my favourite Io Shirai for becoming the new NXT Women’s Champion at NXT TakeOver: In Your House.
