NXT Women’s Championship: Io Shirai (c) vs. Tegan Nox
Tegan Nox could not often sustain the advantage against Io Shirai, but she made her moments on top count with plenty of strong forearms. The Joshi Judas focused on blows to the chest of The Girl with the Shiniest Wizard to slow down Nox. The challenger finally turned the match around by dodging the running knees of the champion, sending Shirai into the steel steps. This allowed Nox to trap Shirai in the Tree of Woe for the CannonBOAR.
A big crossbody from Nox set her up for a chokeslam, only giving the challenger a near-fall. Shirai pushed through her knee pain to hit a tiger feint kick into a diving dropkick, but she could not capitalize. Nox got close after a facebuster and Molly-Go-Round, but it was not quite enough. The Joshi Judas blocked the Shiniest Wizard with a palm strike and then connected on the moonsault for the win.
Winner: Io Shirai (c)
