A few weeks ago, it was confirmed that WWE will crown its first-ever Women’s North American Champion at the NXT Battleground 2024 premium live event. Originally, the new North American Title counterpart was revealed at Stand & Deliver during the WrestleMania weekend while the details came a week later which affirmed that a set of qualifiers will go down to determine the participants of the championship ladder match.

The first two competitors for that match set for NXT Battleground 2024 have been determined on the latest episode of NXT. Lash Legend and Sol Ruca won their respective qualifying matches against Ivy Nile and Izzy Dame to advance to the title match.
