Originally published at Three-way match for the NXT Women's Championship added to TakeOver
NXT has announced a three-way match for the NXT Women’s Championship will take place at the next TakeOver special on Sunday, February 14th.
Io Shirai will defend the championship against Toni Storm and Mercedes Martinez after building towards the match over the past several weeks.
Shirai has held the NXT Women’s Championship since last June when she won the title from champion Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley in a three-way match at NXT TakeOver: In Your House.
Storm and Martinez teamed together in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic where they were upset by Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter.
Martinez was previously part of NXT before a brief call-up to RAW as a member of Retribution before her return to NXT.
Storm won the Mae Young Classic in 2018 and later won the NXT UK Women’s Championship in January 2019. She was moved to NXT last October.
