– Mia Yim caught the attention of the NXT women’s champion, Shayna Baszler, telling her the respect that the newcomer deserves. During the February 20 edition, they collided in the center of the ring and sparked an unlimited fight, in which Lacey Lane, MJ Jenkins and Jessie Elaban (whom Yim previously defended) intervened so that Yim did not take Baszler’s beating, Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke. At the end of the match, while Shafir and Duke held her down, Yim snapped at the champion “Respect me!”, Who responded with a brutal knee.
Tonight, Mia Yim and Shayna Baszler will face each other in the ring of the yellow mark, in which the championship will not be in play. Can Yim get the victory against the champion, or will Baszler have the last word and his arm?

– Keith Lee and Dominik Dijakovic will face off tonight at NXT in a match that will surely be epic between the two towers of the yellow mark.

– Taynara Conti and Xia Li will join to face Vanessa Borne and Aliyah. For Conti, revenge will be on his mind after what happened during his fight with Aliyah in the February 13 edition. “The Real Black Belt of NXT” was overwhelmed by the surprise union of Borne and Aliyah when “The Vision” distracted Conti, allowing Aliyah to get the victory. With Xia Li at his side, can Conti stop the newly formed duo or Borne and Aliyah will shine once again?
