NXT UK has officially announced its Women’s Championship bout for their inaugural TakeOver event,  TakeOver: Blackpool.

It will be the rematch of the match that crowned the first champion as Rhea Ripley defends against Toni Storm!

“At the historic NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool event, Toni Storm aims to dethrone NXT UK Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley in a highly anticipated rematch.

In the hard-fought final to crown the first-ever NXT UK Women’s Champion, Ripley injured Storm’s back to such a degree that she completely neutralized Storm’s finishing maneuver, Storm Zero, and ultimately defeated her to claim the illustrious title.

Since then, Storm has been on an absolute roll. The 2018 Mae Young Classic winner is poised to once again step up and attempt to conquer The Mosh Pit Kid, but will it be “Toni time” when Storm stands face-to-face with the ruthless titleholder?

After all, since winning the inaugural title, the destructive force that is Rhea Ripley has not let up for a moment, dismantling any opponent who has gotten in her way. Clearly, she has only grown more merciless since last locking up with Storm.

Find out who [will] emerge from the groundbreaking event with the NXT UK Women’s Championship in their possession when TakeOver: Blackpool streams live from the Empress Ballroom in Blackpool, England, on Saturday, Jan. 12, 2019, only on the award-winning WWE Network.”
