Update: New Participant Added To Number One Contender Match For NXT On USA Network Debut

It looks like Candice LeRae has been added to the number one contender’s match for the premiere episode of NXT TV live on the USA Network next Wednesday, September 18th.

WWE.com released the following announcement:

Shayna Baszler’s next challenger to be decided in Fatal 4-Way Match on NXT’s live premiere

The NXT Women’s division will take the spotlight next Wednesday on the night of the black-and-gold brand’s USA Network debut, as Mia Yim, Candice LeRae, Io Shirai and Bianca Belair clash in a Fatal 4-Way Match to determine the next contender to Shayna Baszler’s NXT Women’s Title.

Though the bout was originally scheduled as a Triple Threat Match involving Yim, Shirai and Belair, NXT General Manager William Regal added LeRae to the mix after Tenacious C demanded to know why Shirai, her archrival, had been granted the opportunity despite her controversial actions, which included a recent Kendo stick attack against LeRae.

Indeed, the high-stakes match not only carries title implications, but it also brims with personal animosity. Yim and Belair are familiar foes, having gone to war in a best-of-three series earlier this year. LeRae and Shirai, meanwhile, have been at each other’s throats ever since The Genius of the Sky callously betrayed LeRae in June.

Who will navigate the minefield and outlast the competition to stake a claim for a future title match with The Queen of Spades? Find out when NXT airs live Wednesday, Sept. 18, on USA Network! The action kicks off at 8/7 C on USA Network and then continues live at 9/8 C on the award-winning WWE Network.
