Last week’s SUPER TUESDAY episode gave us a new champion and king of the castle, Finn Balor. This week gave us the building blocks as we head towards an October Takeover (crosses fingers for a Halloween Havoc theme). If you don’t know by now, Shotzi Blackheart is a star. It’s an embarrassment of riches in the NXT Women’s division, and the non-title match between Io Shirai and Blackheart was another example of that.
