Elimination format set for NXT Great American Bash four-way match


The fatal four-way number one contender's match at night one of NXT's Great American Bash will now have an elimination format.

WWE announced today that Mia Yim vs. Tegan Nox vs. Candice LeRae vs. Dakota Kai on this Wednesday's NXT will be an elimination match. The winner will become the number one contender to Io Shirai's NXT Women's Championship, but when they'll be getting their title shot hasn't been revealed.

Kai & Raquel Gonzalez defeated Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter on NXT last week. After the match, Kai said she has her sights set on Shirai and the NXT Women's Championship.

Shirai is facing Sasha Banks in a non-title match on Wednesday's episode of NXT. Bayley will be in Banks' corner for the match.

Shirai became NXT Women's Champion by defeating Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley in a triple threat match at TakeOver: In Your House earlier this month.

The Great American Bash is taking place over the next two weeks of NXT and is going up against both nights of AEW's Fyter Fest.

Here are the updated lineups for both nights of the Great American Bash:
