Kairi Sane def. Trish Adora
Competing for the first time since she won the NXT Women’s Title from Shayna Baszler at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV, Kairi Sane revealed her newly obtained booty in a manner that would make any Pirate Princess proud, by pulling the championship gold out of a treasure chest located on the entrance stage.
Sane’s opponent, Trish Adora, seemed to care little for the champion’s theatrics. Adora, who enjoyed a distinct size advantage over Sane, tried to muscle the beloved Superstar around the ring as soon as the bell rang. Adora’s flurry couldn’t be sustained, however, as Sane strung together a dazzling series of moves, capped off by the InSane Elbow, to triumph convincingly.
The Pirate Princess didn’t have much time to celebrate, though, as Baszler stomped to the ring and said that she plans to invoke her rematch clause soon. The words quickly escalated to fisticuffs, with Sane and Baszler trading haymakers, but Sane scored the last laugh when she drove The Queen of Spades from the ring with the Interceptor spear.
