The NXT Women’s Championship match was slotted in the semi-main event spot at NXT TakeOver: New York at the Barclays Center in New York. Shayna Baszler defended against Bianca Belair, Io Shirai and Kairi Sane.
This was a very good match on a fantastic show. The match was fast-paced almost from the start. Baszler retained the title with a deep choke.
There was talk of Baszler moving up to the main roster but her retaining the title seems to indicate that she will stay in NXT at least for a few more months.
