WWE NXT’s Women’s Division received a huge spotlight this week as women from across the brand battled for a #1 contender spot.
WWE ended NXT this week with a big battle royal match. Practically the entire NXT Women’s roster was in this match and it even included the return of Kacy Catanzaro.
This match was for a #1 contender spot for a future NXT Women’s Title shot. Rhea Ripley will defend her title against Toni Storm at Worlds Collide, but the winner of the battle royal laid claim to next in line.
It all came down to Bianca Belair and Io Shirai after Shotzi Blackheart threw out Shayna Baszler and then Blackheart was thrown over the top rope next. Belair and Shirai tried several times to best each other until Bianca Belair finally eliminated Io Shirai.
Bianca Belair will get her NXT Women’s Title match against either Rhea Ripley or Toni Storm at NXT TakeOver: Portland on February 16th.
