The NXT Women's North American Championship is an upcoming professional wrestling championship created and promoted by the American promotion WWE. It is set to be the secondary women's championship of NXT, the promotion's developmental brand, subsequently the first secondary women's championship in company history. The title was unveiled on April 6, 2024, and the inaugural champion will be crowned in a six-woman ladder match at Battleground on June 9, 2024.

History[edit]

At Stand & Deliver on April 6, 2024, the WrestleMania week event for WWE's developmental brand NXT, the NXT Women's North American Championship was announced by NXT General Manager Ava. This will be the equivalent to the men's NXT North American Championship, marking the first-ever secondary women's championship in WWE.[1][2] At Week 2 of the Spring Breakin' special of NXT on April 30, Ava announced that the inaugural champion would be crowned from a six-woman ladder match at Battleground on June 9, 2024. To determine the participants, there will be a combine, and the top 12 names that impress will compete in qualifying matches. The six winners of each qualifier will advance to the ladder match.[3] On the May 7 episode of NXT, Ava announced that Sol Ruca, Chase University's Thea Hail, OTM's Jaida Parker, Brinley Reece, The O.C.'s Michin (from SmackDown), Fallon Henley, The Meta-Four's Lash Legend, Diamond Mine's Ivy Nile (from Raw), Izzi Dame, Kelani Jordan, Tatum Paxley, and Wren Sinclair advanced to the ladder match qualifiers.[4]

Belt design[edit]

The championship belt is identical to its male counterpart albeit on a smaller white strap, also featuring a small banner that says "Women's" right above the "North American" banner on its main plate. Like all of WWE's other championship belts, the two side plates feature a removable center section which can be customized with the champion's logos; the default side plates feature a horizontal NXT logo.[5]
