Becky Lynch defeated Tiffany Stratton to win the WWE NXT Women’s Championship
Many fans saw Tiffany Stratton as a good champion of the third brand. She defended her title well against a few top names before running into Becky Lynch.
Lynch defeated Trish Stratus in a Steel Cage match at WWE Payback before challenging Stratton for the title on the September 12, 2023 edition of NXT. She won the title and successfully defended it in a rematch at No Mercy in an Extreme Rules match.
It looks like WWE will be keeping the title on The Man for some time to bring more viewership to the company’s third brand. It will also help the WWE creative team build a few new names, and the superstar who ultimately defeats Lynch will automatically get a big push.
