Dakota Kai vs. Rhea Ripley - NXT UK Women's Championship Tournament Semifinal Match: NXT UK, Nov. 21, 2018

The high-stakes NXT UK Women's Championship Tournament rages on with an intense Semifinal Match between Dakota Kai and Rhea Ripley.

The high-stakes NXT UK Women’s Championship Tournament Semifinal Match between Dakota Kai and Rhea Ripley began with both competitors feeling out the other, inciting a test of strength and several near-falls. Ripley’s attitude of disrespect was met with a fierce kick from her determined opponent. But out of the battle between Ripley's power and Kai’s fierce arsenal of kicks, Ripley finally caught her opponent with a relentless attack that included a dropkick to Kai’s ear, ramming through Kai in the corner and once again showing amazing strength with her version of the clover leaf submission using the arms.

Kai reached the ropes, though, and when Ripley tried to reapply the maneuver, Kai answered with a series of high-impact kicks and strikes that served as an incredible equalizer to her opponent’s massive power and nearly earned her the pinfall.

Outside the ring, Ripley caught Kai and blasted her face-first into the apron. And, in the final moments, a fierce exchange resulted in Kai missing the crucial kick that opened the door for Ripley to finish her with Riptide to earn her place in the Finals!
