After a gruesome ladder match, Io Shirai is well on her way to a future title match.
Opening the April 8 episode of NXT, Shirai defeated Candice LeRae, Chelsea Green, Dakota Kai, Mia Yim and Tegan Nox in a big ladder match.
With the win, she will now be the No. 1 contender to Charlotte Flair’s NXT Women’s Championship. Flair captured the title, becoming a two-time champion, by defeating Rhea Ripley on the second night of WrestleMania 36 back on April 5. No date has been announced for the eventual title match.
