NXT Women’s Champion Sasha Banks and Charlotte headline NXT’s Philadelphia debut
Philadelphia is a city known for sports-entertainment revolutions. Fans in the jam-packed Tower Theater for NXT’s Philly debut last night saw the latest salvo in a new uprising, as NXT Women’s Champion Sasha Banks and Charlotte main evented the historic event.
“It’s crazy to see how far women’s wrestling has come,” Banks told WWE.com before the event. “Charlotte and I are main-eventing tonight in Phildaelphia and it’s humbling. Who would ever guess when I was 10 years old that I’d be main-eventing an event as big as this?”
Though the two Divas had tough acts to follow, including NXT Champion Kevin Owens, Finn Bálor and their uber-popular colleague Bayley, and the weight of being introduced by WWE COO Triple H bearing down on them, Banks and Charlotte succeeded in tearing the house down. They had the City of Brotherly Love standing, cheering and chanting throughout an epic championship bout.
