Last week, Zoey Stark turned on Nikkita Lyons on WWE NXT, and explained her actions on this week’s show. Stark came out for a promo and explained why she hit Lyons with a belt after the pair lost their NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship match against Kayden Carter and Katana Chance.
Stark said she wanted to come back off injury strong, but was told that she’d be teaming up with Lyons for a shot at the NXT Women’s Tag Team Titles. However, after she got injured in her match with Mandy Rose, she tried to make the team work out, but Lyons wasn’t pulling her weight. Stark said that Lyons, as well as other young recruits she was working with, only leeched off her.
She then took a shot at fans for liking social media posts of Lyons and others like her, and said she will no longer be denied.
