Giulia to Miss NXT Heatwave Due to Wrist Injury, Lola Vice Likely to Face Roxanne Perez

One Big Thing

Giulia, who made a surprise debut at NXT Stand & Deliver, will not be wrestling Roxanne Perez at the NXT Heatwave event on July 7 in Toronto due to her recent wrist surgery. Instead, Lola Vice is expected to challenge Perez for the NXT Women’s Championship.

Key Points

  • Giulia underwent wrist surgery last month and is currently recovering.
  • She is scheduled to face Sareee at Marigold Summer Destiny on July 13, 2024, marking her return to the ring.
  • Sources in Japan and NXT have denied reports of Giulia’s participation in NXT Heatwave from the start.
  • Lola Vice has been teasing going after Roxanne Perez’s NXT Women’s Championship.

Why It Matters

Giulia’s absence from NXT Heatwave is a setback for fans who were excited to see her in action. However, her health and recovery should be the top priority. Lola Vice stepping up to challenge Roxanne Perez could lead to an exciting match and potentially shake up the NXT Women’s Division.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, “Regarding Giulia, she is definitely not wrestling Roxanne Perez on the NXT show on 7/7 in Toronto. She and those in Japan (and one source in NXT) had denied the story from the beginning. She is injured and had surgery on her wrist and won’t be ready by that date. She is coming but not until later in the year. Perez vs. Lola Vice looks to be the match on that show.”

As Giulia continues her recovery, fans eagerly await her return to the ring, which is expected to happen at the Marigold Summer Destiny event in July 2024. Until then, the NXT Women’s Division will continue to evolve, with new challengers like Lola Vice stepping up to face champion Roxanne Perez.
