In a momentous showdown, Lola Vice emerged victorious over Kelani Jordan to capture the highly coveted 2023 WWE NXT Women's Breakout Tournament title. This thrilling final duel unfolded on October 31st as part of WWE's second annual Halloween Havoc event.
With the stakes set high, both athletes gave an unforgettable performance, each aiming for the accolade that could potentially skyrocket their professional wrestling career. Vice sealed her win with a devastating kick to Jordan's head, executing a flawless pinfall that brought the audience to their feet.
Her path to the finals was no cakewalk either; she overcame fierce competitors like Karmen Petrovic in the semi-finals and Dani Palmer in earlier bouts. What makes Vice's win even more notable is her unique background. Before diving into the world of WWE, she was a formidable MMA fighter competing in Bellator circuits.
Upon signing with WWE in June 2022, Vice made history by becoming the first Cuban-American woman to sign with the sports entertainment giant. Her in-ring WWE debut took place less than five months ago on November 12, 2022, during a non-televised NXT event, making her rapid ascent to this significant win even more awe-inspiring.
New Horizons Ahead
The triumph at the WWE NXT Women's Breakout Tournament not only adds to her growing list of accolades but also opens doors for higher-profile matches and potential title shots in the near future. Last year, the world saw Roxanne Perez claim the WWE NXT Women's Breakout Tournament trophy.
Perez, a former NXT Women's Champion, made headlines at last year's Halloween Havoc by defeating Kiana James in a nail-biting Devil's Playground match. The past winners of this tournament have gone on to make significant strides in their careers, a trajectory that Vice is likely to follow given her undeniable talent and unique set of skills.
With her latest win, Lola Vice has undeniably staked her claim in the world of professional wrestling. As the wrestling community anticipates what's next for this rising star, one thing is clear: Lola Vice is a name that will be resonating in WWE circles for years to come.
