NXT Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley’s TakeOver: Portland challenger will be determined tonight in a Battle Royal on USA Network.
Ripley got a taste of just how long the line may be for a chance at her title this week, when Toni Storm, NXT UK Women’s Champion Kay Lee Ray, Bianca Belair, Io Shirai and even her friend Candice LeRae staked their claim to a title opportunity.
The Battle Royal will include Bianca Belair, Candice LeRae, Chelsea Green, Dakota Kai, Vanessa Borne, Kayden Carter, Mia Yim, Santana Garrett, Io Shirai, Shotzi Blackheart and Xia Li. Also, new WWE Performance Center recruit and 2017 Mae Young Classic semifinalist Mercedes Martinez will join the fray, as first reported on WWE Backstage.
Who will stand tall at the end and earn the right to challenge The Nightmare on Feb. 16 in Portland?
