A battle royal will determine the next challenger for the NXT Women’s Championship.

WWE announced this afternoon that a 20-woman battle royal will determine the next challenger for the title, which is currently held by Mandy Rose.

Rose defended the title on this week’s show, defeating Roxanne Perez. The finish came when Cora Jade, Perez’s tag team partner, turned on her by attacking Perez in the back with one half of the NXT Women’s Tag Team titles, which they currently hold. Rose then used the opportunity to pin Perez to retain.

After the match, Jade continued the assault on Perez, attacking her with her skateboard.

Here is the updated lineup for next week’s NXT:

  • JD McDonagh vs. Cameron Grimes
  • 20-woman battle royal for a NXT Women’s Championship title shot
  • Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen vs. Pretty Deadly for the NXT UK Tag Team titles
  • Roderick Strong vs. Damon Kemp
  • Axiom in-ring debut
  • The Schism reveal their identities
