BAYLEY vs. RUBY RIOTT (w/ SARAH LOGAN & LIV MORGAN)
Collar & elbow tie up to start to the match, and Bayley gets a headlock takedown on Riott, but Riott fights out and gets a headlock on Bayley herself and then hits Bayley with a right hand. Bayley charges at Ruby and Ruby sends her out of the ring hard.
Back in the ring, Riott locks in a rear chin lock on Bayley, slowing the hugger down. Bayley tries to fight out, and Ruby sends her into the corner. Bayley falls near the ropes and Ruby distracts the referee long enough for Sarah Logan to nail a stiff shot to the face. Both women get up and Ruby charges at Bayley and Bayley dodges, but Riott uses the ropes to lock in a headscissors and drive Bayley’s face right into the middle turnbuckle. Bayley is disoriented but nails Riott with a right hand and then hits a crossbody off the middle rope onto Riot.
Bayley climbs up top and hits a big Macho Man elbow to Riott. Both women get up and Liv Morgan hops on the apron to distract Bayley, and Bayley decides to try to send RIott into Morgan, but Ruby reverses and Bayley goes into Morgan, sending Morgan crashing, and giving Ruby Riott enough time to get the Riott Kick and pick up the victory.
Winner: Ruby Riott
