NXT Women’s Champion Asuka literally provided Bayley with a ringside seat to her match against Aliyah. In return, Bayley threw the chair aside and stood as Asuka devastated Aliyah with her lethal strikes.

The bold titleholder played mind games with Bayley throughout the contest, even at one point cutting her pinfall attempt on Aliyah short. Finally, Asuka trapped her overmatched opponent in the Asuka Lock for the submission victory, but released the devastating hold only after Bayley came into the ring.

With tensions rising, what will go down next week when Asuka and Bayley sign on the dotted line to make their rematch for the NXT Women’s Championship at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II official?
