AEW Star Reacts To Real-Life Partner’s Upcoming Inaugural WWE Championship Match

AEW Star Reacts To Real-Life Partner’s Upcoming Inaugural WWE Championship Match WWE/AEW

A current AEW star has reacted to his real-life partner’s upcoming match to determine an inaugural WWE champion.

On last night’s episode of WWE NXT, Michin defeated Tatum Paxley in the opening match, earning her a place in the Ladder match to crown the inaugural NXT Women’s North American Champion at NXT Battleground.

Michin will compete alongside Jaida Parker, Sol Ruca, Fallon Henley, Lash Legend and Kelani Jordan in the match.

Taking to Twitter following her win, Michin laid out her goal of becoming the Women’s North American Champion, comparing it to her husband Keith Lee winning the men’s North American title in 2020.

She wrote:

The assignment. @RealKeithLee was Mr. North American Champion. Time for me to be Mrs. North American Champion. #Yimitless #WWENXT

Keith responded to Michin’s claim, giving her some sound advice, simply saying:

Just don’t give it away like I did.

Keith won the NXT Championship from Adam Cole in a title vs. title match at NXT Great American Bash in 2020, with him then relinquishing the North American Championship the following week.

It was also announced on last night’s NXT show that TNA Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace will challenge Roxanne Perez for the NXT Women’s Championship at Battleground.
