WWE Bring In Shock Outside Name For Huge Title Match

Triple H WWE

The wrestling world might never be quite the same again as in the spirit of cooperation and competition, a current TNA champion is set to challenge for WWE gold.

NXT General Manager Ava had warned NXT Women’s Champion Roxanne Perez that she’d find out her opponent for Battleground on the 28th of May edition of NXT.

While rumours had swirled about a main roster name potentially returning to the developmental brand to face Perez, Ava shocked everyone when she brought out current TNA Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace.

What’s Jordynne Grace Doing In The WWE NXT Arena?!

Jordynne Grace has of course competed for WWE in the past all while still representing TNA as the promotion’s top women’s champion. Grace was part of the 2024 Women’s Royal Rumble where she lasted just shy of 20 minutes before being eliminated by Bianca Belair.

Grace will challenge Perez for the NXT Women’s Title at Battleground on the 9th of June in the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The confirmed card for Battleground so far is –

  • Roxanne Perez (c) vs. Jordynne Grace – NXT Women’s Championship
  • Oba Femi (c) vs. Wes Lee vs. Joe Coffey – NXT North American Championship
  • Nathan Frazer & Axiom (c) vs. The O.C. – NXT Tag Team Championship
  • Shayna Baszler vs. Lola Vice – NXT Underground
  • Sol Ruca vs. Lash Legend vs. Fallon Henley vs. Jaida Parker vs. Michin vs. Kelani Jordan – Ladder Match for NXT Women’s North American Title
