Kairi Sane Mae Young Classic

Kairi Sane has won a shot at the NXT Women’s Championship at NXT Takeover: Houston. Sane was announced as getting the title shot by Triple H in an interview with ESPN after winning the Mae Young Classic.

“[I’m] very excited that she’s the first champion, and now the question is ‘What’s next for her?,'” Triple H said. “I can tell you what’s next for her. On Nov. 18 at the Toyota Center at the next NXT TakeOver, Kairi will be fighting to determine a new NXT women’s champion.”

There is no word yet on who Sane’s opponent(s) will be. Asuka vacated the title on last week’s NXT due to her injury and move to Raw.
