NXT UK Women’s Champion Meiko Satomura made a surprise appearance on NXT 2.0 and immediately issued a Worlds Collide challenge!
Last week at NXT Heatwave, Blair Davenport made a surprise appearance and tore up a letter that Indi Hartwell presumably received from her estranged husband Dexter Lumis and declared that she was the future NXT Women’s Champion. This week, Davenport and Hartwell went one on one – but unfortunately for the former Mrs. Lumis, Davenport was successful in her in-ring NXT 2.0 debut, handing Indi Hartwell yet another loss on her record.
Following the match, Blair Davenport took to the microphone, reminding everyone that she was the number one contender for the NXT UK Women’s Championship. She said, however, that becoming NXT Women’s Champion would suit her just fine, so she called out current champion Mandy Rose.
Mandy Rose took exception to this, and reminded the NXT UK star that she’d been champion for over 300 days and was dominant in NXT, saying that Davenport needed to put some resepect on her name. However, the pair were interrupted by the appearance of current NXT UK Women’s Champion Meiko Satomura, who commentary called the “most respected woman in this industry.”

Satomura took to the microphone, saying:
“Mandy, you are wrong. You are not the most dominant Women’s Champion. That would be me!”
In response, Mandy Rose said that the best way to put respect on her name would be to beat a legend like Satomura, which led the NXT UK Women’s Champion to lay down the challenge for a champion vs. champion match at Worlds Collide.
Not content to let the match go forward without her, Blair Davenport interrupted to remind everyone once again that she’s the number one contender, leading to Satomura declaring that it would be a triple threat match, which was made official on NXT’s social media.

Earlier in the night, another title unification match was made when Bron Breakker and Tyler Bate also agreed to face each other in a champion vs. champion match at Worlds Collide.
With decades in the wrestling business, Meiko Satomura began her wrestling career in 1995, debuting for the promotion Gaea Japan.

The legendary wrestler signed with WWE in October of 2010 and has reigned as NXT UK Women’s Champion since June of 2021.
