Tomorrow night, WWE’s current longest-reigning champion Kay Lee Ray defends the NXT UK Women’s Championship against Piper Niven. If Ray can hold on to the title, the Scottish Superstar will be well on the road to joining an elite club of champions who have held the gold for 400 days.
Earlier today, Inside The Ropes‘ Kenny McIntosh caught up with the NXT UK Superstar and asked which other Women’s Champion KLR would want to clash with if she can make it to Survivor Series with the title and if travel restrictions were to be lifted.
“I’d like to say all of them. I’d love to say all of them…but…I have faced Io before and I have faced Asuka before on the independents. The only person I’ve not faced is Bayley.”
Kay Lee Ray continued, “She better watch out.”
It may not just be Bayley who has to watch her back, though – as Kenny asked about Ray’s history of competing in intergender matches, and whether we may see her go toe-to-toe with any of WWE’s male Superstars in the future.
“You never know what I’m going to do. Never take anything off the cards. “
You can watch the entire video below, where Kay Lee Ray also tells Kenny McIntosh of her excitement at being involved in NXT WarGames last year, how she managed to power through the match with an ankle injury, and all about Drew McIntyre’s big WrestleMania win and the future of WWE events in the UK, among other things.
