Mia Yim, Tegan Nox qualify for NXT TakeOver: Tampa ladder match


Two more participants have qualified for the number one contender's ladder match at NXT TakeOver: Tampa.

Mia Yim and Tegan Nox both won qualifying matches on tonight's episode of NXT. Yim defeated Dakota Kai, while Nox defeated Deonna Purrazzo.

Raquel Gonzalez's interference ended up backfiring in Yim vs. Kai. Gonzalez attacked Yim in a post-match angle, but -- after Gonzalez and Kai left -- Yim got to her feet and the crowd chanted for her.

On last week's NXT, Chelsea Green became the first wrestler to qualify for the number one contender's ladder match by defeating Shotzi Blackheart.

The ladder match will feature six participants in total. Another qualifying match has been announced for next week's NXT, with Candice LeRae set to face off with Mercedes Martinez. WWE hasn't revealed who will be in the other two qualifiers.

The Amalie Arena is scheduled to host NXT TakeOver: Tampa on Saturday, April 4. With Rhea Ripley defending her NXT Women's Championship against Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 36, the ladder match is taking place at TakeOver instead of a title match. The winner will be the number one contender to either Ripley or Charlotte after WrestleMania.
