Number 1 Contender for WWE NXT Women’s Championship to Be Determined Next Week

A Battle Royal has been announced for the next week’s episode of NXT to decide who will be the number 1 contender for the NXT Women’s Championship, currently held by Io Shirai.

The participants for the Battle Royal are the following:

  • Shotzi Blackheart
  • Kacy Catanzaro
  • Indi Hartwell
  • Aliyah
  • Dakota Kai
  • Candice LeRae
  • Rhea Ripley
  • Tegan Nox
  • Raquel Gonzalez
  • Kayden Carter
  • Xia Li

It has yet to be announced when the winner of the Battle Royal will face Shirai, but with the next TakeOver event taking place on October 4, it is a fair bet that the match will take place then.
