Dexter Lumis Creeps On LeRae & Hartwell’s Spa Day
Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell wanted to celebrate their NXT Women’s Tag Title win from last week with a little “spa day,” but matters got a little sketch as Dexter Lumis was on hand for the R&R. This out-of-ring segment had the women all chill as Indi seems all convinced by camp LeRae that Lumis is a loser, but as they both donned cucumber mud masks, Dexter loomed over the two before walking off unbeknownst to the new champs.
Later on in the episode, an employee at the spa appears to let Candice know her card has been declined and states it appears to be due to a recent floral purchase. Indi puts two and two together to release that those flowers last week didn’t come from Dexter last week which means Lumis still is sweet on her. She frolicks off elated as Candice shows frustration.
