Asuka, Nikki Cross, Billie Kay & Peyton Royce came to blows before TakeOver: San Antonio
With the NXT Women’s Championship Fatal 4-Way Match inching closer and closer, NXT General Manager William Regal wanted to hear from the four competitors in the battle, but made them promise that the proceedings would not turn into a fight.
Promises, however, were made to be broken. As soon as her three challengers were in the ring, Asuka charged to the squared circle and went straight for Billie Kay and Peyton Royce. The two Australians scurried from the ring, leaving Asuka and Nikki Cross to go nose-to-nose. Kay and Royce jumped them from behind, but were once again tossed from the ring, leaving The Empress of Tomorrow and SAnitY’s most rabid member alone in the ring.
Security tried to keep the two apart, but were pummeled by the two Superstars. The security force seemingly got a handle on things as they pulled Asuka from the ring, but they failed in containing Cross, who climbed to the top rope and dove off onto the NXT Women’s Champion and the guards. Kay and Royce stood stunned at the top of the ramp, looking at the pile of humanity that laid before them, perhaps wondering what they had gotten themselves into at TakeOver: San Antonio.
