#4. Could Candice LeRae be the next number one contender for the NXT Women's Championship?
It is hard to believe that Candice LeRae hasn't won a title with WWE yet. The Poison Pixie has been a mainstay in the NXT women's division over the last few years and has been involved in some big moments involving the NXT Championship at times.
Earlier this year, LeRae turned heel. She went from a friendly and dedicated member of the roster to someone who is selfish and cruel towards her fellow competitors.
There is also a history between LeRae and current NXT Women's Champion, Io Shirai. In 2019, LeRae supported Shirai in her feud against Shayna Baszler and tried to help her defeat the Queen of Spades in a steel cage match. However, The Genius of the Sky was unsuccessful, and their alliance ended after Shirai attacked her former friend. The pair had a brief rivalry following this, and Shirai defeated LeRae in their acclaimed match at NXT TakeOver: Toronto.
In the past, Candice LeRae earned a shot at the NXT Women's Championship against Shayna Baszler, which she unfortunately lost. Has the time come for Candice LeRae to gain another shot at the title?Published 18 Sep 2020, 01:58 IST
