At WrestleMania 36, Charlotte Flair captured the NXT Women's Championship for the second time in her career, as she defeated Rhea Ripley in an all-time classic and what also the first-ever NXT Women's Title match at WrestleMania.
Flair, who won this year's Women's Royal Rumble Match, then went on to defend the title against Io Shirai on NXT after 'The Genius of The Sky' overcame five other women in a Ladder Match to earn her shot at the title. However, that match ended in a DQ and also led to the return of former champion Ripley.
