NXT Women’s Champion Asuka def. Nicole Matthews (Non-Title Match)
OTTAWA, Ontario — After taking over Toronto last week, NXT made its way to the Canadian capital of Ottawa, kicking off in hard-hitting fashion with Asuka in action. The undefeated Empress of Tomorrow was riding high after her victory over the legendary Mickie James and looked supremely confident as she took on Nicole Matthews.
While Matthews went right after the NXT Women’s Champion, Asuka was ruthless in her attack, kicking her into the canvas with no mercy before picking up the victory with the Asuka Lock. Later, in an interview with Dasha Fuentes, The Empress of Tomorrow declared that she wants competition. “But, I’m afraid there isn’t any left,” she said. Is there anyone who can step up to the challenge of Asuka?
