Big Heel Turn After Tonight’s WWE NXT Main Event

Zoey Stark has let Nikkita Lyons down.

Tonight’s WWE NXT episode on the USA Network was spearheaded by Katana Chance and Kayden Carter who retained the NXT Women’s Tag Team titles over Stark and Lyon. At one point during the match, there was some miscommunication when Stark nearly ran into Lyons. The champions both attacked, but Lyons pushed Stark out of the way to save her, and then Lyons was knocked out with a double superkick by Chance and Carter. Stark fought both champions, but Chance went against her and hit the tornado DDT. Chance and Carter then hit their top rope 450 neckbreaker combo finisher, allowing Carter to cover the pin to win and keep.

After the match, Stark and Lyons brought the title belts into the ring and handed them to Chance and Carter, bowing to show their respect. Stark suddenly swung the title belt in Lyon and laid her down to shock the crowd. Stark then attacked Chance and Carter, but they retreated to the ground. Stark attacked her former tag team partner while she was down, throwing the belt at Chance and Carter. NXT went off the air with Stark standing over Lyon and challenging her.

Despite Lyons being a fan favorite, fans chanted for Stark when NXT went off the air.

Stark and Lyons began teaming up on the September 13 NXT show, defeating Arianna Grace and Kiana James. Since then, they’ve had a TV win over Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne, but fell short in a title match against Chance and Carter two weeks ago. Tonight’s main event was a rematch of the October 25 show.

There’s no word yet on what’s next for Stark and Lyon, but a match between the two is likely before NXT Deadline on Saturday, December 10.

Below are several photos from tonight’s main event and the heel turn from the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, FL:
