A new champion was crowned during tonight’s May 28 WWE NXT Battleground premium live event from Lowell, Massachusetts.
As advertised, the show played host to the final of the NXT Women’s Championship tournament.
The title had been vacated by Indi Hartwell due to seemingly a combination of injury and the fact she was moved to Raw in the WWE Draft.
The final at Battleground was contested by Tiffany Stratton and what many deemed a surprise finalist in Lyra Valkyria.
To get to the final, Stratton had picked up wins against Gigi Dolin and Roxanne Perez.
Valkyria, on the other hand, had beaten Kiana James and Cora Jade.
There was no surprise when it comes to the winner of the final and new NXT Women’s Champion, as it was Tiffany Stratton who scored the win.
Stratton has been applauded by colleagues, fans and management for the progress she’s already shown despite still being very new to wrestling, and now she has a reward to prove that.
Elsewhere during Battleground tonight, there was a heel turn and the formation of a new faction, which you can read about at this link.
The full card for Battleground is as follows:
NXT Championship – Carmelo Hayes (c) vs. Bron Breakker
NXT Women’s Championship – Lyra Valkyria vs. Tiffany Stratton
Heritage Cup Championship – Noam Dar (c) vs. Dragon Lee
NXT Tag Team Championship – Mark Coffey & Wolfgang (c) vs. Brutus & Julius Creed
