The WWE NXT star returns as the battery recharges, the new champions crowned

Me Shirai and Zoey Stark are your new WWE NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions and Tegan Nox is back on NXT.

Tonight’s NXT Great American Bash special saw Shirai and Stark defeat Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell to win the straps, after Nox returned and caused a distraction.

Nox turned out to be the Superstar behind the recent charger teasers. As The Way tried to end the match, the lights inside the Capitol Wrestling Center went out and the charger hit 100% on the big screen. Nox then appeared on stage, shocking LeRae. This resulted in Shirai taking out the champions once again and Stark getting the pin to win over Hartwell. Nox attacked LeRae after the match and chased her back, giving Shirai and Stark time for their post-match celebration.

This is the first realm for Shirai and Stark. The Way held the titles for 59 days, winning them on May 4 after defeating Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart in a Street Fight.

As noted earlier, Nox was back in action in the ring in a pre-RAW dark match Monday night, against Toni Storm. She has been out of action since September 2020 after suffering a torn ACL, her third since 2017. She was wrestling with LeRae at the time of the injury and LeRae was blamed for the injury in the plots. It is reported that Nox actually suffered the injury during rehabilitation.

Stay tuned to learn more about Nox’s return and the new NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions. Below are some snaps of tonight’s Great American Bash title change from the Capitol Wrestling Center to the WWE Performance Center:
