Bianca Belair has earned himself an NXT Women's Championship opportunity next month.

In the main event of tonight's episode of NXT, Belair won a battle royal to crown a new No. 1 contender for the title. Belair last eliminated Io Shirai after the two engaged in a back-and-forth battle for several minutes to decide a winner.

The match featured a number of prominent names, including newly-signed Mercedes Martinez, Candice LeRae, Tegan Nox, Shotzi Blackheart and the returning Katy Catanzaro among others.

Although Belair is guaranteed a title shot, she will have to wait a week-and-a-half before finding out who the champion will be. Current champion Rhea Ripley will defend her title against Toni Storm at the Worlds Collide event taking place on January 25 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
