TNA Wrestling Star Appears On WWE TV, PLE Championship Match Confirmed

TNA Wrestling Star Appears On WWE TV, PLE Championship Match Confirmed WWE/TNA

A WWE ‘forbidden door’ moment as tonight it was revealed that an upcoming mystery opponent for a WWE title is from TNA Wrestling.

When Roxanne Perez was in the ring waiting on NXT General Manager Ava to introduce who would be her challenger at the upcoming Battleground PLE at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, she ended up getting a very surprising answer.

Ava first came out to tell Perez she thinks Perez is doing a fine job as NXT Women’s Champion, which is why she has gone out to find her the best opponent she could locate.

TNA Wrestling star and current Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace was revealed as the surprise challenger!

The NXT crowd understandably responded with a raucous, “Holy S**t!” chant as Jordynne Grace re-introduced herself to the WWE fans.

Grace also appeared in the 2024 WWE Royal Rumble earlier this year, and now she’s challenging Roxanne Perez for Battleground.

Grace said:

“Roxanne, you are a great champion, a two-time champion. You have built your name here in NXT the same as I have in TNA.

“But I’m curious, who do you think has built the stronger foundation? I wanna find out, so at Battleground, I’m going to be challenging you for your NXT Women’s Championship. And I’m fully prepared to leave Las Vegas a double champion.”

Grace will actually also be in action on next week’s NXT, in a match against Stevie Turner.

The championship belt was also revealed for the first time – you can click here to see the new title.
