Asuka def. Alicia Fox
Alicia Fox is unpredictable, but not so unpredictable that she’s ready for Asuka. The Empress of Tomorrow followed up on her near-instantaneous defeat of Dana Brooke last week (setting a record for fastest submission victory in a women’s match) by toppling the former Divas Champion, though Alicia did manage to make it interesting (that big boot!) before suffering the fateful armbar that spelled her end.
The arrival of Absolution quickly complicated the situation, as they encircled the ring with both Asuka and Alicia still inside. Asuka once again accepted a stalemate and exited when Absolution made no move, leaving Alicia alone in the proverbial lion’s den. Paige reassured her “best friend” Fox that she had nothing to fear from her — the same couldn’t be said, however, for Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose, who quickly decimated the former Divas Champion.
