Despite the size difference, Kai prevailed early in the match by hitting her former friend on the canvas. Even when the champion tried to hit the Chingon Bomb, Kai was able to land a punch in the arm, further weakening Gonzalez.
Kai threw everything she had at Gonzalez, including the Impact Cairopractor, a double hit from the top rope, but it wasn’t enough to knock the mighty champion down. Gonzalez emerged victorious after Chingon’s devastating mid-pitch bomb, retaining her title.
But as soon as the NXT women’s champion put Kai in her rearview mirror, a new threat arose. Kay Lee Ray, the longest NXT UK women’s champion in history, arrived at the Capitol Wrestling Center with her eyes clearly on the Gonzalez title.
