Shotzi Blackheart to battle Candice LeRae for NXT Women’s Title opportunity at NXT Halloween Havoc
Candice LeRae bested Shotzi Blackheart last month to earn a matchup with NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai. Can she again hold off Blackheart when they meet one-on-one with another opportunity to challenge Shirai at NXT Halloween Havoc on the line?
The Poison Pixie prevailed by the narrowest of margins over Blackheart after they were the final two competitors remaining in last month’s Battle Royal, but LeRae was unable to topple The Genius of the Sky at NXT TakeOver 31.
Meanwhile, Blackheart, who will host NXT Halloween Havoc, has flexed championship-quality bona fides in recent weeks. She pushed Shirai to her limit in a singles bout last month, in addition to picking up several victories.
Can she take the next step toward another match with Shirai — this time for the NXT Women’s Title?
