The Horsewomen entered Full Sail Live with broad smiles, presumably eager to boast about their beatdown of Mia Yim last week or Shayna Baszler’s continued dominance.

But before the NXT Women’s Champion could get one word out, she was interrupted by the headbanging anthem belonging to former NXT UK Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley. The Mosh Pit Kid confidently stomped into the ring, swiped the mic from Baszler’s hand and reminded The Queen of Spades that while she may have beaten many of NXT’s top Superstars, she’s yet to defeat Ripley.

Stunned, The Horsewomen backed down and left without further incident, giving Ripley the upper hand in this unexpected exchange between unrepentant thrashers.
