She says she has 20/20 vision when it comes to that championship. Bianca says she sees Shayna and you have your title and horsewomen galloping behind you. You think you are the baddest, but the EST of NXT is walking out of Phoenix with the title because she is Un-De . . .
interrupted by NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler and she is joined by Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke.
Shayna comments on the EST of NXT and says she doesn’t see it. Everybody knows about her records at the Performance Center. She is the fastest and the strongest, but she is not the smartest. If you had half a brain, you would understand that it doesn’t matter how big and strong your arms are, she is going to tear them off at Takeover.
Bianca tells Shayna uh uh. The only things these arms will be doing is hold the title over her head at Takeover.
Shayna says you are just like everybody else. You won’t put your money where your mouth is and fight her. You are afraid. You’re afraid I am going to break your arms. You’re afraid I am going to silence the hype. You are afraid I am going to change your vocabulary from Un-De-Fea-Ted to Over-Rated.
Shayna says something to Bianca that cannot be heard by the mics. She asks Bianca if she is afraid of her friends. They are the least of your worries.
Belair slaps Shayna and then she avoids Marina and Jesssamyn as she gets to the floor.
