Ever since the build to NXT Takeover: WarGames in 2020, Shotzi Blackheart & Candice LeRae have been steady rivals. LeRae destroyed Blackhearts precious tank, and that led to them clashing in WarGames. Now, they will meet once again but with their partners by their sides and gold on the line. Blackheart and Ember Moon are the NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions, and they’ve faced LeRae & Indi Hartwell twice now, and won both matches. Tonight though, under the bright lights of Takeover? Anything can happen.
The Way Attack Early
As soon as the bell rang, Hartwell and LeRae would strike and look to get an early edge on the champions. LeRae hit a senton to the back of Blackheart, getting an early two count before cornering her. Hartwell tagged in and threw Blackheart into the knees of LeRae, for another early pin attempt. Blackheart was hit with a neckbreaker, and that cheap start from The Way really set her back.
She’d fight back out of the armbar of LeRae, only to be taken down by Hartwell. More quick tags from The Way kept Blackheart grounded. She was in dire need of a tag to Moon, but as she kicked LeRae away, Hartwell got a tag before dragging Blackheart away. LeRae tagged back in and got hit with an enziguri.
Moon tagged in and gave a little tribute to Road Dogg, with a little Shake, Rattle & Roll, before going to the corner. LeRae would join in, then Blackheart, then Hartwell took everyone down in the Tower of Doom spot. Hartwell followed up with a sky high spinebuster, before tagging in LeRae.
Ember Moon & Shotzi Blackheart Are Getting Better And Better
Moon would make a tag to Blackheart, who hit a Tiger Suplex before diving to the outside and crashing into the barricade. She might have hurt herself more than The Way, but that’s why it’s called high risk offense. Moon & Blackheart hit a Dominator/Cutter combo for a near fall.
LeRae wasn’t going to give up, and would nab a roll up, take Moon off the apron and tag in Hartwell. The Way hit a modified 3D, but Moon broke up the pin and hit LeRae with a knee strike. Hartwell was taken down with an enzuguri, and Moon went for the Eclipse. Blackheart was legal however, and hit the senton for the win!
