If Peyton Royce has her way, the next NXT Women’s Champion will be nothing short of “iconic.”
The Venus Fly Trap of NXT became the newest Superstar to qualify for the NXT Women’s Title Fatal 4-Way Match at TakeOver: WarGames on Saturday, Nov. 18. She will join the first Superstar announced for the bout, Mae Young Classic winner Kairi Sane.
Royce moved into contention after overcoming Nikki Cross and Liv Morgan in a wild Triple Threat Match on the Oct. 11 edition of NXT. The Pirate Princess earned entry into the title bout after winning the Classic, WWE’s inaugural 32-woman tournament held this past summer.
The remaining spots will be filled in the coming weeks as NXT continues to hold qualifying matches.
The NXT Women’s Title has been vacant since Asuka relinquished the championship on Sept. 6, bringing a close to The Empress of Tomorrow’s historic 523-day reign.
Who will be the next Superstar to join the Fatal 4-Way fray? Stay tuned to NXT each week to follow the latest developments, and don’t miss the historic NXT Women’s Title Match when it takes center stage Saturday, Nov. 18, at NXT TakeOver: WarGames, exclusively on WWE Network.
