Asuka def. Dana Brooke
Despite Brooke’s assertion that Asuka was a slow starter, the undefeated former NXT Women’s Champion made immediate work of her opponent — armbar, tap — but the sight of Absolution quickly changed the complexion of the proceeding. As Paige, Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose encircled the ring, The Empress of Tomorrow and her foes seemed to size up their options, leading to what appeared to be a silent, mutual understanding that their clash would have to wait. For how long, of course, is the big question.
