This Wednesday, WWE announced two qualifying matches for the Women’s Ladder Match, which will determine the number one challenger at the NXT Women’s Championship. These matches will be held tonight at NXT.
As a reminder, this Ladder match was to take place at NXT TakeOver: Tampa Bay, but the event was canceled due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. The match will, therefore, be held in the coming weeks during a weekly episode of NXT, as WWE confirmed this Tuesday.
Regarding the qualifying matches to be held this evening, Candice LeRae will face Kayden Carter while Aliyah will be against Xia Li. Note that Candice LeRae was supposed to face Mercedes Martinez, as WWE itself announced there a few weeks.
As a reminder, Mia Yim, Chelsea Green and Tegan Nox are all three already qualified for the Ladder match. The winner will face Rhea Ripley or Charlotte Flair after Wrestlemania 36.
Regarding tonight’s NXT episode, Triple H will be on hand to speak to fans about TakeOver Cancellation: Tampa Bay but also to confront Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano after the destruction of the Performance Center two weeks ago.
Also, Adam Cole will have a “special message” to deliver to the NXT Universe, while Roderick Strong will face half the team champions, Matt Riddle. Finally, Tyler Breeze will be opposed to Austin Theory.
