The alliance of Cora Jade and Roxanne Perez appeared to be troublesome for The Toxic Attraction on WWE NXT 2.0. However, the duo has split up and thus the heel faction might have lost its biggest threat in recent times. In a shocking manner, the two babyfaces decided to get split up.

As seen on the July 12 edition of WWE NXT, the one-half of the reigning NXT Women’s tag team champion, Cora Jade turned on her own partner, Roxanne Perez, during the closing moments of the show. This also cost the latter, her NXT Women’s Championship match opportunity.

As WWE NXT kicked off last night, Perez was attacked in the parking lot on her way into the venue. This was a premeditated attack as she was scheduled to compete in the NXT Championship bout against champion Mandy Rose in the main event segment. Thus, it was presumed that Rose and her Toxic Attraction buddies were behind the attack.

Then before competing in the main event match, WWE NXT Women’s Champion Mandy Rose addressed the crowd and mentioned how Perez wasn’t womanly enough to get over an injury. Jade wanted to step up and replace Perez in the match as she yelled the following to Rose,

“Your night isn’t over yet, because they were promised an NXT Women’s Championship match, and that’s exactly what they’re going to get. If Roxanne can’t go, I’ll step in and take that Women’s Championship from you.”

Perez eventually appeared on the ramp as she was hell-bent on competing in the main event of WWE NXT. She entered the ring for her title match and closed in on a victory after hitting Rose with her signature Pop Rox finisher. However, Jade took the championship belt and hit Perez after which Rose capitalized by hitting a jumping knee on her to get the pin to win.

After the match was over, Jade revealed that she was the one who attacked Perez earlier in the night. The turn-on from Jade came just a week after they captured the WWE NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship with a win over Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne NXT’s Great American Bash. It will be interesting to see whether they will be stripped of WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles due to the split-up.
