In a highly-anticipated NXT UK Women’s Championship rematch, Toni Storm once again went to war against Rhea Ripley.
Despite a pre-match attack from The Mosh Pit Kid, Storm showed the heart of a true champion when she insisted that the match commence as planned.
Storm battled back from Ripley’s early aggression, only to suffer a vicious onslaught inside and outside the ring. Every time Storm fought back, Ripley shut her down, as she concentrated her ruthless onslaught on the titleholder’s lower back and executed her devastating inverted Cloverleaf.
Storm fired back with an explosive attack, including a pair of German suplexes that proved her back was still in in the game.
Intensity reached a fever pitch as champion and challenger exchanged the advantage back and forth and left everything on the canvas in an effort to walk away with the coveted title.
Then, just when it looked as if Ripley had the title in her sights with a devastating superplex/slam combination, the unrelenting Storm suddenly dodged out the way and sent her challenger crashing into the ring post, opening the door for Storm to roar back with Storm Zero for the huge title defense.
