NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions Shotzi Blackheart and Ember Moon will be in action during tonight’s NXT episode.
WWE has just announced that Moon and Blackheart will face The Robert Stone Brand’s Aliyah and Jessi Kamea in non-title action.
It was announced last week that The Way’s Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell have earned a future title shot from Moon and Blackheart. In the arrival video below, Robert Stone indicated that Aliyah and Hartwell will become the new #1 contenders if they can get a win tonight.
Moon and Blackheart previously retained over Aliyah and Mercedes Martinez on the Marc 24 NXT show. Martinez was filling in for Kamea that night due to an injury. The Way will likely be watching tonight’s non-title match closely and a date should be set for the next title defense.
