Shayna Baszler defeated Kairi Sane at Evolution in the first ever NXT Championship match to be part of a main roster pay-per-view and now The Pirate Princess has cashed in her rematch for next weekend’s Takeover: War Games in a 2 out of 3 falls match.
Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir involved themselves in the match between the two women last month and helped Baszler to reclaim the title and make history as the first ever two-time NXT Women’s Champion.
It is thought that the two women will be a part of the upcoming match between the two women which is expected to be Sane’s last chance to reclaim her title.
Sane has her own friend in NXT and a 2 out of 3 falls match allows both sides to get a distinct advantage since disqualifications add to the fall count. It is definitely an interesting gimmick match since it would have made more sense to have a standard match and ban Duke and Shafir from ringside, but this is reportedly the match that Sane requested as her rematch.

War Games takes place the night before Survivor Series next weekend and already sees Tommaso Ciampa defending his NXT Championship against Velveteen Dream, Johnny Gargano taking on the man he attacked back in the summer, Aleister Black and the traditional War Games match.
This year it will be Undisputed Era up against Pete Dunne, Ricochet and War Raiders, but the latter has a distinct disadvantage since all four members of Undisputed Era were inside the steel last year which saw Adam Cole, Bobby Fish, and Kyle O’Reilly come out on top.
The show is now just a week ago and no other matches are expected to be added since the card usually only contains four or five matches.
