Paige tries to restore order but Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville make their entrance and question her methods to make history with these two undeserving women instead of the two women she personally groomed for stardom. Mandy points out that Charlotte lost at Survivor Series and Sonya points out that Asuka only won the battle royal by a fluke after she made one tiny mistake.
They want to see fire and desire, they’re looking right at it, and what happens if Charlotte and Asuka don’t make it to TLC? Paige tells them they’re past idle threats and books a tag match between them… right now!
Asuka and Deville to start, circling, Sonya with a front chancery, reversed to a waistlock, standing switch, reversed to a wristlock. Deville reverses, Asuka breaks free, grabs the wristlock again, whip reversed, shoulder block, fired up and the Empress catches an arm but finds herself reversed into a side headlock! Out to her feet, roundhouse ducked but Asuka grabs the Fujiwara armbar!
Shifting to a kneeling armbar and then wristlock stomps to the shoulder, arm wringer blocked with a knee and Rose tags in. Double whip into a double boot, series of kicks and a double mat slam for two! Asuka to her feet, palm strikes, Mandy catches the hip toss knee and lands a hard forearm! Asuka with a dropkick for two, tuning up the, er, band for the hip attack before tagging Flair in.
Snapmare and a knee to the back, to the corner, scoop, Rose floats over and puts the Queen into the turnbuckles! Drawing her up, Charlotte recovers, exploder suplex, boot for Sonya and a suplex for her as well when she runs in! Both women on the floor and Flair takes flight with a plancha! Quick strut on the floor and Becky Lynch comes down the ramp as we go to break.
Back from commercial, Asuka fires off a leg kick but Rose counters into a tilt-a-whirl slam for two! Smashing her face into the mat, tag to Deville and they put boots to her together. Sonya with knees, a snapmare, off the ropes with a sliding knee for two! Mandy tags back in, huge knee… NOPE! Back to the corner with kicks, tag to Deville, body blow and a choke in the corner, quick tag right back.
Rose with rights, Asuka fighting back with body blows, off the ropes into a clothesline and Mandy draws her up into a wheelbarrow that the Empress of Tomorrow counters into a bulldog… tag to Flair! In hot with forearms, chops, backing a legal Sonya into the ropes. Whip across, back suplex connects, the Queen kips up and follows it up with a spear! Knee lift and a dump to the apron for an interfering Mandy Rose!
She pulls Asuka off the apron, right hand for Flair, Asuka with the save but Charlotte boots her off the apron! Sonya with an O’Connor roll, Flair reverses and Asuka blasts her with a kick…
