- On tonight's show, NXT Women's Champion Shayna Baszler will take on Mia Yim. Below, Yim noted while it may have been Baszler's birthday two days ago, it will be Yim's birthday when she takes home the title.
"[Today,] The Bruiserweight rolls into Toronto, and Roderick Strong, I'm going to beat you up," Dunne said. "Velveteen Dream, he's gonna get hurt, and I'm walking away with that North American Championship. Simple as that."
