Rhea Ripley had an uphill climb on her hands for most of the bout with Dakota Kai wounding her early on, viciously stomping her arm on the apron. Kai dominated much of the action behind her ruthless mean streak, looking impressive in her first match since WarGames.

But The Nightmare valiantly fought back, even though she had virtually no use of her left arm. Though Raquel González was banned from ringside, it didn’t keep her from taking ot the stage to stare Ripley down. The former NXT Women’s Champion made sure to stare González down as she pinned Kai following the Riptide. 

The referees tried to prevent Raquel from confronting Rhea afterward, but it was to no avail, and the nemeses’ war of words soon turned into a fist fight. Ultimately. roughly a dozen officials were needed to separate the two powerhouses.
