Io Shirai Returns On NXT And Qualifies For No. 1 Contender's Ladder Match Along With Candice LeRae

After being out with an injury for the past few months, Io Shirai returned this week on NXT and defeated Aliyah to advance to the No. 1 Contender's Ladder Match which will now take place in two weeks time.

Aliyah was supposed to face Xia Ling for the opportunity to earn a spot in the NXT Women's Championship No. 1 Contender's Ladder match that was originally scheduled for TakeOver: Tampa, but after Ling was taken out by an unknown assailant, the returning Io Shirai was announced as her replacement.

The Genuius of the Sky had been out of action with a knee injury for the past two months, and was evidently medically cleared a lot sooner than anyone expected.

Shirai handily defeated Aliyah with her Moonsalt, and will go on to compete in the highly-anticipated ladder match, which will now take place in two weeks on The USA Network.

There's still one spot left - who do you guys think will take it?
