Tegan Nox, Mia Yim & Shotzi Blackheart def. Candice LeRae, Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez
NXT TakeOver: In Your House kicked off with a wild Six-Woman Tag Team battle that saw several heated rivalries intersect. Raquel Gonzalez asserted her dominance early in the match, overpowering the opposing team and taking control for her squad. Gonzalez used her considerable size advantage throughout the bout, even catching Shotzi Blackheart out of mid-air on an attempted dive and ruthlessly tossing her to the arena floor.
LeRae, Kai & Gonzalez isolated Blackheart, but the fiery Superstar persevered, fighting back to her corner, tagging in Yim and giving The HBIC a chance to finally get her hands on LeRae. However, the two bitter rivals’ fury could not be contained, as they brawled to the backstage area, essentially turning this into a two-on-two match. Blackheart & Nox turned the tables on Gonzalez, joining forces to take out Kai’s towering muscle. Then, Nox clobbered her bitter rival with the Shiniest Wizard to pin Kai and pick up the victory as TakeOver got off to a thrilling start.
