Following the Mae Young Classic finals, Paul “Triple H” Levesque told ESPN that Kairi Sane, the winner of the Mae Young Classic, will get a shot at the vacant NXT Women’s Championship at November’s NXT Takeover: Houston show.
Earlier this week, Pro Wrestling Sheet reported that the NXT Women’s Championship match at Takeover: Houston will be a multi-woman match, and during the latest NXT tapings, the brand’s GM William Regal announced that the Women’s Title match at Takeover will, in fact, be a fatal four way.
The first qualifying match saw Peyton Royce, with the help of Billie Kay, defeat Nikki Cross and Liv Morgan to advance to the Takeover event.
And in the second qualifying match, Ember Moon defeated Ruby Riot and Sonya Deville to advance to the Women’s Title match.
As of this writing, we don’t know who the fourth participant will be.
