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.

Check out more photos of her appearance below.
