Lyra Valkyria vs. Ivy Nile Women’s title qualifying match announced for NXT
Two qualifying matches for the Women's Championship ladder match at Stand & Deliver will take place on NXT.
WWE has announced Lyra Valkyria vs. Ivy Nile is scheduled for Tuesday's show. The winner will be entered into the title match on April 1 in Los Angeles.
WWE has previously advertised that Valkyria would face Wendy Choo on Tuesday but has since changed the match to Valkyria vs. Nile. Choo has been sidelined with an injury deemed "not too serious" and was written off television via a parking lot attack on the February 28 episode.
Another qualifying match for this week's NXT featuring Indi Hartwell vs. Tiffany Stratton was previously announced for Tuesday as well.
Zoey Stark and Gigi Dolin have already qualified to be two of the four participants at Stand & Deliver. Stark defeated Sol Ruca and Dolin defeated Kiana James in qualifying matches on last week's show.
Shawn Michaels announced the ladder match to crown a new NXT Women's Champion after an angle at Roadblock saw Roxanne Perez collapse following her match. Our own Dave Meltzer previously reported that the angle was done to potentially explain Perez's absence due to a non-injury-related situation. However, on Tuesday's edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer noted that Perez will be "back in the mix" shortly.
She is okay, cleared, and will be worked back into storylines probably starting on tomorrow's show. Somehow they are going to get her back in the mix. Whatever the issue was, they got a good report.
It's not an injury but it was just a situation that could have kept her out. That's why they did the thing as a backup thing. Everything's cool and from what I was told today, now they are going to start working her back in.
