Io Shirai And Zoey Stark Retain NXT Women’s Tag Titles Against Kacy Catanzaro And Kayden Carter

The partnership between Io Shirai and Zoey Stark continues to be a turbulent one, but it also remains a successful one.

Stark and Shirai successfully defended the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship this week on WWE NXT against the cohesive duo of Kacy Catanzaro and Kayden Carter. The champions argued throught the bout, and this dissension almost cost them the bout at a few points.

Still, Shirai clinched the win with her signature moonsault, so the champions’ reign continues. It was clear that the partners weren’t on the same page, and if they don’t settle their differences, they might not be so lucky the next time around.

To make matters worse,’ Gigi Dolin, Jacy Jayne and Mandy Rose attacked the champions after the bout, so the champions will have to worry about these new prospective challengers, too.
