This was for Asuka’s NXT Women’s Championship.
This match was SO good and such a nice change of pace compared to the expected women’s championship match (even if that expected match is almost always good).
Nikki Storm was running around and being a lunatic. She clearly likes to fall off of high things which is historically one of the greatest gimmicks a professional wrestler can have. Good stuff.
She was tragically thwarted from winning this one though by the NEW GREATEST ACT IN WWE: Peyton Royce and Billie Kay! They are best friends. They make their entrance together! They just love being good friends who help each other! Yes!
Their plan nearly worked, too. They tossed Nikki off the commentation station (shaped like a table) and through a table. From there, they went to finish off Asuka 2 on 1. Asuka made a wild and sudden comeback though and kicked off their heads until she won.
Fun action. Good pace. Great crowd reaction. Everyone looked good. What was not to like about this one? (***1/2)
