Indy Star works last nights NXT Taping

Popular independent wrestler Candice LeRae just wrestled her first match in NXT … and the wife of Johnny Gargano got a shot to become number one contender during her inaugural appearance.


LeRae was one of many female wrestlers who competed in a battle royal at Wednesday’s TV taping to determine the new #1 contender for Asuka‘s NXT Women’s Championship.

According to those in attendance, however, Candice was eliminated by Billie Kay with a big boot.

No word on whether she’ll be working with WWE/NXT more in the future, but the wrestler would make a great addition to their upcoming women’s tournament.

Awesome to hear. Hope things work out for her if that's what she still wants to pursue.

I expect her to sign at the very least for the Women's Tournament and if it all takes place at Full Sail, she'll be super over with that crowd.
