WWE Universe echoed “holy sh*t” chants through the performance center as TNA’s Jordynne Grace was added to NXT Battleground 2024 match card. The anticipation was big around NXT Women’s Champion Roxanne Perez’s new challenger’s name announcement which appeared to be a massive surprise.

The general manager Ava came out to the ramp to announce Perez’s opponent for the women’s title at NXT Battleground 2024 and out came Jordynne Grace amid loud pop from the NXT crowd. The reigning TNA Knockouts Champion entered the ring, came face-to-face with Perez, and cut a promo to show her determination to leave Las Vegas as a dual champion.
