“Mercedes Martinez, something I will never forget [is] how you tried to embarrass me. Mae Young Classic, my first match ever, you tried to bring shame to my name and disgrace to my family. I feel sick when I watch this back. I’ve been waiting for this moment for four years. Now I am a true warrior, and you stand in the way of my destiny. Mercedes, at TakeOver, I will hurt you.”

Li looks to avenge her loss by issuing this challenge, and WWE has made this match official at NXT takeover.
