Finn Bálor & Bayley (Team B’N’B) wasted no time getting the party started when they wore each other’s ring jacket while preparing to take on Jinder Mahal & Alicia Fox (Team Mahalicia) in this big-time matchup.
Mahalicia were looking to rebound in the round robin format after their tough loss last week, but “team captain” Alicia Fox got off to a questionable start for the squadron when she insisted on challenging Finn instead of Bayley. The match regained some normalcy when Bálor and Mahal began to slug it out, but the bout again took a turn toward the bizarre when Sunil Singh caught a falling Bayley and asked her if she wanted to Bollywood dance with him … Bayley got rocketed into the post by Alicia before she could answer.
Finn and Bayley battled back, and their longstanding friendship proved to be a major asset as the two worked together fluidly. In the match’s pivotal moments, Sunil opted to run away from a Bayley attack and let Fox take the brunt of it. This caused Foxy to chase down Sunil, and Bayley wrecked Singh with a Bayley-to-Belly. Bálor followed up with a dive that took out Sunil and Mahal, and Bayley finished Fox off with another Bayley-to-Belly to pick up the clutch victory in her team’s MMC debut. Mahalicia fell to 0-2.
Too sweet, indeed.
