Her celebration was interrupted when the lights went out and Xia Li introduced herself. Li walked to the ring, walked past Kai, and walked straight up to NXT Women’s Champion Raquel Gonzales. Li said Gonzales was part of his business. – This forced Gonzales to take the title off his waist and lift it into the air. She said if Li wants this, she has to show up this time. The segment ended with Li nodding and stepping out of the ring as Gonzalez stares down at her.
The match has been made official for next week and we will see Raquel Gonzales defend his title against a new challenger to Xia Li.

WWE NXT Match Card – Tyler Rust & Roderick Strong vs. Bobby Fish & Kushida
Tyler Rust managed to pass Bobby Fish in tonight’s head-to-head match thanks to interference from his Diamond Mine partner Roderick Strong. After the match ended, the Diamond Mine surrounded Bobby Fish and was about to deliver a deadly attack on him until the NXT Cruiserweight Champion rushed into the ring and sided with Bobby Fish.
This led to Diamond Mine retreating to the ground, and the segment was enough to book a game between the two teams for next week. Later that night the match was made official and we will see Kushida & Bobby Fish team up for the first time to take on The Diamond Mine (Tyler Rust & Roderick Strong)
