A chaotic start to last night’s edition of NXT led to a confrontation between Ember Moon and Women’s Champion Raquel Gonzalez, which has had major implications for In Your House.

As William Regal was ejecting a returning Adam Cole, Moon stormed the ring threatening to hold the show hostage unless the title holder would come out and face her.

This came about after their tag match last week, where Moon’s partner Shotzi Blackheart was viciously attacked by Gonzalez and Dakota Kai.

As Gonzalez entered the ring Moon got the jump on here, hitting a number of strikes and kicks to send the champion to the outside where she was held back by security and Regal.

This was all a setup though, as whilst she was being ejected Dakota Kai attacked Moon in the ring.

This has led to two matches being announced.

Moon will take on Dakota Kai next week on NXT, and will then get a shot at Gonzalez’ title at In Your House.

This title match for NXT TakeOver: In Your House brings the current card to:

  • NXT World Championship: Karrion Kross (c) vs. Adam Cole vs. Kyle O’Reilly vs. Pete Dunne vs. Johnny Gargano
  • NXT Women’s Championship: Raquel Gonzalez (c) vs. Ember Moon
  • Cameron Grimes vs. LA Knight
  • Mercedes Martinez vs. Xia Li
