Perhaps the match with the second biggest buzz behind it at NXTTakover: WarGames is the fatal four-way match for the NXT Women’s Title. Mae Young Classic Winner Kairi Sane squared off against Sanity’s Nikki Cross, Peyton Royce, and perpetual Number-1 contender Ember Moon. All four women are capable of putting on a great match, and tonight was no different. There were some incredible moments and the crowd was into it the whole night.

But in the end, a long-time fan favorite finally realized her dream!

And she did it with an AMAZING DOUBLE Eclipse!

This is great news! Ember has worked so hard for this. She’s had to overcome Asuka and these three superstars.

It was also great that Asuka was the one to pass the title onto Ember. It was a passing of a torch to a new era in NXT!

What’s next for the new NXT Champion?

Ember Moon will probably face off against Kairi Sane for the title in the next feud. Sane also hit her finisher on both Royce and Cross.

I think this will be a super match. Both of these ladies are high-flyers who can hit you hard! Kairi Sane has a lot of potential to be a big star for the NXT moving forward. Other possible opponents include Ruby Riot, Billie Kay, Sonya DeVille. The Women’s Division is still in a rebuilding phase, but I think with Moon, the Iconic Duo and the competitors from the Mae Young Classic, they’re going to be in good shape.

But wait…there’s more!

For the NXT championship, the revived Drew McIntyre faced off against “EL Idolo” Andrade “Cien” Almas. The match was a great back-and-forth as both Drew and Cien hit each other hard. Zelina Vega got involved and even hit a hurricanrana on Drew.

That was part of what helped Almas SHOCK the world and win gold!

NXT continues to put on great shows that put the WWE main roster on notice.
