WWE Hypes Rhea Ripley vs. Mercedes Martinez NXT Match As The “Battle Of The Badasses”


WWE.com posted the following preview, hyping next Tuesday night’s steel cage match between Rhea Ripley and Mercedes Martinez on NXT. The company is billing the match as “The Battle of the Badasses.”

Here is the complete announcement:


Rhea Ripley to face off with Mercedes Martinez inside a Steel Cage at NXT Super Tuesday II
Rhea Ripley is tired of playing games with Mercedes Martinez and The Robert Stone Brand, and she isn’t hiding it.

That’s why she has called for Martinez to face her inside a Steel Cage — a challenge her rival eagerly accepted, setting the stage for The Battle of The Badasses in the main event of NXT Super Tuesday II.

Martinez and The Robert Stone Brand have been a gigantic thorn in The Nightmare’s side for weeks. First, Martinez intervened in Ripley’s bout against Dakota Kai, costing her a potential NXT Women’s Championship opportunity against Io Shirai.

Teaming up last month with Shotzi Blackheart to face Martinez and Robert Stone Brand compatriot Aliyah, Ripley fired back with a devastating powerbomb to Martinez on the concrete.

That wasn’t enough to keep Martinez at bay. She again antagonized Ripley two weeks ago, ambushing her during a tag team match against Kai and Raquel González, costing her another victory.

Now, Ripley’s looking to put an end to her issue with Martinez once and for all in an unforgiving Steel Cage Match. But with Martinez more than eager for a battle, who will emerge victorious?

Don’t miss what promises to be a brutal encounter on NXT Super Tuesday, Tuesday night at 8/7 C on USA Network!
