Peyton Royce def. Liv Morgan & Ember Moon (NXT Women’s Championship No. 1 Contender’s Triple Threat Match)
ORLANDO, Fla. — As Asuka’s record-setting NXT Women’s Championship reign reached its 326th day, three of NXT’s top female competitors clashed for the right to challenge The Empress of Tomorrow. Ember Moon and Liv Morgan have become friends and partners over the past few weeks, but that went out the window with a title opportunity hanging in the balance.
Despite Moon and Morgan’s best efforts, neither could overcome the advantage that having Billie Kay at ringside gave Royce. The Femme Fatale pulled Royce out of the way of a diving Moon, giving The Venus Fly Trap an opening to grab the fiery Superstar and hurl her into the steel ring steps. Royce neutralized Moon, keeping her out of the fight as she worked over Morgan. When Moon recovered, Kay entered the ring to stop her, but ate an Eclipse for her troubles. The distraction gave Royce the opening she needed to hit Morgan with a Fisherman’s Suplex to get the three-count and a championship showdown with Asuka.
