Shayna Baszler def. Violet Payne
The Queen of Spades punished Payne with a targeted attack on her arm, bending Payne’s wrist in all sorts of directions, and before long, The Submission Magician locked in the Kirifuda Clutch to pick up the decisive submission victory.
Not satisfied with merely earning the W, Baszler reapplied the Kirifuda Clutch twice more after the bell before throwing Payne from the ring. The post-match attack was a powerful show of force, but it was also a clear indication that even though Baszler no longer holds the NXT Women’s crown, she’s every bit as dangerous as before.
