Sarray Wins NXT Debut

The NXT women’s division has received another major player.

This week, Sarray made her debut on the black-and-gold brand in a match against Zoey Stark.

The contest was highly competitive, as Stark showcased her impressive athleticism while Sarray showed everyone why she is viewed as buzzworthy acquisition.

Sarray picked up the win with a suplex, and she came to Stark’s rescue when Toni Storm attacked her after the match.

Sarray, formerly known as Sareee, was considered one of the best Japanese wrestlers in the world. She starred in several promotions, such as Seadlinnng, Sendai Girls’ Pro Wrestling, and JWP Joshi Puroresu.

Kushida Retains Cruiserweight Title Against Oney Lorcan

One week after KUSHIDA won the NXT Cruiserweight Championship, he proved that he’s a fighting champion on the following episode of WWE NXT.

He issued an open challenge, and Oney Lorcan stepped up to answer it. Lorcan had been absent since his tag team partner, Danny Burch suffered an injury in March.

Lorcan held his own against the champion by using his stiff strikes and grounding Kushida. Still, the champion fired back with a flurry of explosive offense, and he forced Lorcan to tap to the Hoverboard Lock.

After the match, Legado del Fantasma ganged up on Kushida and attacked him. But the NXT Tag Team Champions, MSK ran to the ring and made the save.

 


This week on WWE NXT, LA Knight faced Dexter Lumis, Kyle O’Reilly returned, and Sarray debuted.
