Ruby Riot def. Sonya Deville
Ruby Riot and Sonya Deville might have new homes on SmackDown LIVE and Raw, respectively, but they still had business to finish in NXT. Riot was out for retribution after Deville injured the punk rocker’s ankle in October, while The Jersey Devil promised to finish the job and break Riot’s ankle the next time they met in the ring.
Deville came dangerously close to achieving her goal, trapping Riot in an ankle lock in the waning moments of their bitterly fought match. Just like in October, however, the plucky Riot refused to tap out and, with the support of the NXT fans inside the Toyota Center, managed to reach the ropes and force a break.
Deville argued with the referee, giving Riot the opportunity to regain her footing. The punk-rock pugilist then surprised Deville with a wind-up overhead kick to snare the pinfall victory.
With both Superstars now competing on different brands, Riot can find solace in the fact she scored the last laugh against her double-tough nemesis.
