A big match has been announced for next week’s episode of WWE NXT on the WWE Network.
That match will see Io Shirai, Bianca Belair, Lacey Evans, and Mia Yim square off in a No. 1 Contender’s Fatal 4-Way Match next Wednesday. The winner of this contest will challenge NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler at TakeOver: Phoenix. WWE issued the following on this upcoming match:
NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler will find out her opponent for TakeOver: Phoenix when Io Shirai, Bianca Belair, Lacey Evans and Mia Yim square off in a No. 1 Contender’s Fatal 4-Way Match next Wednesday on WWE Network.
The high-stakes match brings into conflict four of the fastest-rising competitors in the division. Riding the momentum of an incredible undefeated streak, Belair was the first Superstar to qualify for the four-way fight, followed by the hard-hitting Lady of NXT, who has since been earmarked for an impending debut on either Raw or SmackDown LIVE.
Yim earned her berth with an impressive win against the powerful Reina González on the Dec. 12 edition of NXT, while The Genius of the Sky was named to the match after her impressive NXT TV debut on Dec. 19.
Between The EST of NXT’s jaw-dropping athleticism, Evans’ malicious quest to rid NXT of “nasties,” Yim’s considerable ring experience around the world and Shirai’s dynamic aerial arsenal, the duel is guaranteed to be all action from bell to bell. See which Superstar will separate herself from the pack and claim a title match with The Queen of Spades when NXT streams Wednesday at 8/7 C on the award-winning WWE Network.
