Vanessa Borne came out as Xia Li finished up her entrance in the ring. Besides, we saw how Li recently broke the nose of Borne’s friend Aliyah. Tom said Borne challenged Li to this match because of Aliyah. The bell hit, and they went at it, aggressively taking it to the ropes and the corner. Borne was angry but it backfired as Li moved, and she ran into the corner. Li overpowered Borne for a big powerbomb in the middle of the ring. She yelled at Borne.
Suddenly, NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler, Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke appeared on the stage.Li watched while Baszler and her crew were heading down the ramp. She kicked Borne in the head to finish her for the pin to win. After the match, Baszler sent the Horsewomen into the ring, but Li ended up fighting them off. She entered the ring and dropped Li. Li came back and unloaded on Baszler to drop her.
She fought off Shafir and Duke again until Baszler clubbed her from behind to dropped her again. The triple-team unloaded on Li. Baszler said everyone is trying to take credit for Survivor Series Weekend, but no one had the kind of weekend like she had. She touted beating RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley at the same time.
However, the fans started chanting for Rhea Ripley. Baszler went on yelling about her success until the music hit and Ripley came out to a big pop. Ripley entered the ring, but all three Horsewomen exited to boos. She called Baszler back to the ring because Rhea has something to say to her face. Baszler walked back to the ring and stood on the apron as Ripley got in her face.
Ripley just wanted to congratulate Shayna. She said Baszler did beat Bayley and Becky, but when she went face to face with Ripley, she lost. Fans chanted for Ripley again. Ripley said she will do it again, but next time it’ll be for the NXT Women’s Title. Fans popped again as Ripley backed up and talked trash. Baszler watched from the apron while fans were chanting “Rhea’s gonna kill you!” She entered and got in Ripley’s face.
Shayna had heard this all before. She said Ripley might be the nightmare, but she’s the reality, and the reality is that Ripley will be tapping or napping like the rest. Baszler dropped the mic and exited the ring again but Ripley challenged her to come do it right now. Fans chanted “yes!” as Baszler teased to come in but backed off and headed up the ramp. Ripley said Baszler knows if she comes back into the ring she will get dropped. Baszler headed back to the stage with her crew while Ripley was talking trash from the ring and her music hit the arena.
