Six NXT wrestlers take part in WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal


Six wrestlers from NXT appeared in tonight's WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal.

Peyton Royce, Kairi Sane, Taynara Conti, Kavita Devi, Bianca Belair, and Dakota Kai were the six who took part in the match. The latter five were also in the Mae Young Classic last summer, where Sane defeated Shayna Baszler in the finals.

Devi, who is from India and reported to the Performance Center earlier this year, lost to Kai in the first round of the Mae Young Classic. WWE's clip of their tournament match currently has 21 million views on YouTube. Conti represented Brazil in the MYC and came out with the country's flag tonight.

Despite Royce's inclusion, her Iconic Duo partner Billie Kay wasn't in the WrestleMania 34 battle royal.

The NXT representatives worked together, with Belair hitting a 450 splash and Sane doing her Insane Elbow. But it came down to Sasha Banks, Bayley, and Naomi. Bayley and Banks teamed up near the end and went to slap hands when they thought they were the only two left, but Bayley threw Banks out of the ring. Naomi then reappeared, hit the Rear View, and eliminated Bayley to win the match.
