Thea Hail Wins Number One Contender’s Battle Royal On 6/6 WWE NXT

Thea Hail has earned a future title shot.

The June 6 episode of WWE NXT was headlined by a number one contender’s battle royal to determine the first challenger for Tiffany Stratton’s NXT Women’s Championship.

Halfway through the bout, Blair Davenport walked down to the ring, which lured Roxanne Perez out briefly. While they brawled, Tatum Paxley leaped out onto Perez to signify her alliance with Davenport.

Then the final four appeared to be down to Fallon Henley, Dana Brooke, Kiana James, and Cora Jade. Henley tossed out James, and then Brooke pushed Henley off. When it looked like Jade and Brooke were the last two, Thea Hail returned from ringside to play spoiler. After a brief battle, Hail pushed out both Brooke and Jade to win the match.

Hail was met with a big Chase U celebration, which also included an appearance from NIL signees The Cavinder Twins.

Hail will now receive a future NXT Women’s Championship match against Tiffany Stratton, but a date has not been set.

The order of eliminations was as follows:

  • Brooklyn Barlow
  • Lola Vice
  • Gigi Dolin
  • Kelani Jordan
  • Jakara Jackson
  • Lash Legend
  • Yulisa Leon
  • Valentina Feroz
  • Tatum Paxley
  • Roxanne Perez
  • Jacy Jayne
  • Lyra Valkyria
  • Kiana James
  • Fallon Henley
  • Cora Jade
