Sane and Shayna Baszler went head-to-head in a hard fought battle during the WWE Network special and Kairi picked up the win after landing her patented elbow drop from the top rope.

Triple H told ESPN after the event that the newly crowned winner will compete at TakeOver for the recently vacated title and Senior News Producer James McKenna reported before the show that sources say the current plan is for multiple woman from NXT to be in the match.
