WWE Star Turns Heel

WWE Star Turns Heel WWE

A WWE star has betrayed their supposed best friend tonight (April 9) and turned heel during the opening segment of NXT.

On tonight’s WWE NXT, the show opened with new two-time NXT Women’s Champion, Roxanne Perez.

Perez revealed in the segment that she would be entering the 2024 WWE Draft and planned to take the NXT Women’s Championship with her to Raw or SmackDown.

While Perez was in the ring touting her big victory from Saturday at NXT Stand & Deliver, she was shortly joined by the woman she beat for the title, Lyra Valkyria.

With Valkyria’s shoulder still in a sling, she said that Perez would not be taking the NXT Women’s Title with her to the main roster.

Lyra would say that she wanted her NXT Women’s Championship rematch, tonight.

However she was joined by Tatum Paxley who, after weeks of obsession/friendship with Valkyria, turned on Valkyria and threw her into the ring steps as Roxanne Perez laughed.

By the end of the segment Roxanne Perez was then joined by WWE veteran Natalya who challenged her to a title match tonight and subsequently General Manager Ava who confirmed.

Roxanne Perez will put her NXT Women’s Championship on the line tonight against Natalya who noted that she had one WWE title missing from her list of accolades: the NXT Women’s Title.
