SPOILER: Surprise names at NXT tapings, NXT Women's Championship set for Takeover: Chicago



A battle royal was held at Wednesday night's NXT TV tapings to determine Asuka's next challenger for the NXT Women's Championship. There were some surprise names in the battle royal including Candice LeRae (the wife of Johnny Gargano) and Rachael Ellering. Ellering was at the recent Impact Wrestling tapings.

Ruby Riot, Nikki Cross, and Ember Moon were the final three women in the match but Asuka ran down and destroyed all of them. The referee ruled the match a no contest. William Regal came out and announced that Asuka would have to defend the title against all three of those women in a Fatal 4-Way.

NXT Takeover: Chicago will take place on 5/20, the night before the WWE Backlash pay-per-view and it will be held at the Allstate Arena.
