Rose in with a double leg pickup to the corner, repeated forearms, putting the boots to her, Asuka fires up, Mandy ducks a lariat but takes kicks in the middle of the ring. Rose with an inverted gutwrench suplex, shifting to a Japanese stranglehold, Asuka forces her way out of it with ease but gets caught by a knee and whipped into the corner. Big dropkick, running knee… NOPE!
And so to break.
Back from commercial, both women are on their knees and slugging it out with forearms. To their feet, Asuka pulls ahead, repeated kicks into a hip toss knee strike and a forearm, off the ropes, sliding strike, hip attack in the corner and the Empress of Tomorrow heads up top. Perching, missile dropkick connects, but the cover’s only good for two.
Rose with a back elbow, sidestep the running hip attack, short-arm lariat, leg pick into a Face Eraser but Asuka reverses to a victory roll pin! Asuka Lock countered into a pin but Asuka rolls it around.
