Asuka gave Bayley a spinning back fist to knock her off the apron before putting Banks in the Asuka Lock again for the submission win.
Winner: Asuka – NEW CHAMPION
Thoughts: Much like Bayley vs. Asuka, we have seen the match up a lot, but they managed to deliver a fresh, fast-paced match. The Powerbomb on the outside was the highlight and they kept the pace throughout the match. Wish it could’ve been longer, but overall a great performance with these two, as usual.
