Brookside entered first, followed by Samuels. Xia Brookside quickly set to her rival, launching into a fierce assault. Nina Samuels tried to avoid this by getting out of the ring, but was followed by her rival. Samuels prevented the pair from getting counted out by throwing Brookside back in.

Samuels then began fighting back, and held Brookside in a chin lock before transitioning into an armbar. After Brookside escaped this, she went at Samuels with a series of strikes and attempted to pin her, but she kicked out at two. Samuels then laid into Brookside at the side of the ring, and the pair almost got counted out once more.


Nina Samuels then tried to assault Brookside with a handbag, who kicked it out of her hands and used a suplex to pin Samuels for the win. With that, the star earned herself an assistant on NXT in the form of Nina Samuels.

Winner: Xia Brookside
