Bianca Belair def. Mia Yim
Bianca Belair loves to boast, but as she proved against independent wrestling warhorse-turned-NXT rookie Mia Yim, Belair can back up her trash-talk. Following her thrilling NXT debut three weeks ago, Yim sought to be the first Superstar to deal Belair a loss between the yellow ropes. The stakes were heightened by the numerous insults Belair that slung Yim’s way, both on last week’s NXT and on social media since then.
Despite Yim’s impressive track record, The EST of NXT paid her no respect, slapping and verbally berating Yim in between grinding her down with submission holds. The Head Baddie in Charge caused trouble for the ever-confident Belair, too, rattling her with a flurry of dropkicks early on and, later, a torrent of strikes that garnered a near-fall.
Nonetheless, the result was exactly as Belair predicted. After a back-and-forth struggle, The EST of NXT nailed Yim with the K.O.D. (a torture rack into a facebuster) and claimed the pin. Belair, for now, remains un-de-fea-ted.
