Ruby Riot & Nikki Cross def. Billie Kay & Peyton Royce
ORLANDO, Fla. — Despite NXT General Manager William Regal’s advice, the self-willed Ruby Riot entered her match against Billie Kay & Peyton Royce without a partner. Thanks to an assist from the unlikeliest of Superstars, however, Riot didn’t end the match that way.
As The Iconic Duo used their 2-on-1 advantage to batter Riot, SAnitY’s Nikki Cross cut through the NXT Universe and stationed herself ringside to get a closer look at the action. Once Riot broke free of the arrogant Aussies’ onslaught and backed into the opposite corner, Cross climbed onto the apron and tagged herself in.
Surprised and confused, Riot watched as Cross tore into The Iconic Duo. The unpredictable Superstar hit Kay with a swinging fisherman neckbreaker before tagging in Riot and leaving the ring. Riot splashed Kay with a high-elevation senton and pinned her, but rather than celebrate the big win over her rivals, Riot seemed preoccupied with trying to figure out Cross’ unexpected behavior.
