Last night's episode of NXT saw a backstage segment, where Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell confronted the NXT Women's Tag Team Champions Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart. Indie asked why didn’t they just go ask NXT General Manager William Regal for a title shot, but Candice called Regal a saboteur. LeRae then confronted Moon and Blackheart only to find out that Indi Hartwell had already abandon her, most likely for a rendezvous with Dexter Lumis. Moon and Blackheart then ended up beating LeRae. Indi then joined The Way in a backstage segment later on in the show and revealed that she met with NXT General Manager William Regal, not Lumis, and that Regal had granted them a future title shot.
There is no word yet on when the NXT Women's Tag Team Title match will take place, but this will be a rematch from the recent NXT TakeOver: Stand And Deliver Night Two Event, which saw the team of Shotzi Blackheart and Ember Moon successfully retain their NXT Women's Tag Team Titles, in what was just the team's second title defense since becoming the champions in early March.
