— A Last Woman Standing match between Rhea Ripley and Raquel Gonzalez has been announced for the WWE NXT New Year’s Evil special.
Gonzalez and Ripely have been feuding for a few months now, and Ripley defeated Gonzalez in singles action at the Halloween Havoc special back in October. Tonight’s NXT episode saw Ripley defeat Dakota Kai in singles action, but a big brawl with Gonzalez broke out after the match.
The Last Woman Standing match was later revealed when New Year’s Evil host Dexter Lumis was shown drawing a poster for the match.
The special New Year’s Evil edition of NXT on the USA Network will air live on Wednesday, January.
