Io Shirai Earns NXT Title Shot Against Charlotte Flair

Io Shirai is the new #1 contender to new WWE NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair.

Tonight’s NXT episode saw Shirai win a six-woman Ladder Match to become the new #1 contender for a future title shot. The other participants were Mia Yim, Chelsea Green, Candice LeRae, Dakota Kai, and Tegan Nox.

Things were heated from the start, but Shirai was able to overcome the other five competitors and lock in her shot at Flair. Towards the end of the match, Shirai shoved LeRae off the top of the ladder, which caused her to bounce off a ladder that was wedged into the top rope. From there, Shirai was the only one in the ring, and was able to pull the briefcase down and set herself up as the new No. 1 Contender.

There’s no word yet on when Shirai vs. Flair for the title will air on NXT TV. Flair just won the title from Rhea Ripley this past Sunday during Night Two of WrestleMania 36.
