The first #1 contender to WWE NXT Women’s Champion Roxanne Perez will be decided on next week’s New Year’s Evil edition of NXT.
WWE has announced a 20-Woman Battle Royal for next week’s NXT. The winner will go on to challenge Perez for the NXT Women’s Title at the Vengeance Day Premium Live Event on Saturday, February 4.
The following Superstars have been announced for the #1 Contender Battle Royal: Gigi Dolin, Jacy Jayne, Ivy Nile, Tatum Paxley, Sol Ruca, Cora Jade, Zoey Stark, Nikkita Lyons, Fallon Henley, Kiana James, Elektra Lopez, Wendy Choo, Ivy Nile, Thea Hail, Lyra Valkyria, Valentina Feroz, Lash Legend, Amari Miller, Jakara Jackson, and Dani Palmer.
The first NXT episode of 2023 featured an in-ring brawl with the Battle Royal competitors. Perez interrupted from the platform above the crowd, and told them all to relax as they could earn their title shot in the Battle Royal being held next week. The brawl broke out after several competitors made the case for why they should get the first title shot from Perez.
