6-Woman Ladder Match for #1 Contendership to the
NXT Women’s Championship

All 6 stare each other down… Yim goes after Green, LeRae on Shirai, and Nox goes right after Kai. All 6 women end up in the corners, kicking down their opponents. Kai goes to the opposite corner and sends Shirai to the outside. She then goes after Yim on the other side. Kai signals for Gonzalez to bring the tallest ladder, resting on the ramp, into the ring. LeRae, with a basement dropkick, sends Gonzalez to the floor with the ladder on top of her. LeRae, Yim & Nox all surround Kai and the beat down is on!

All three trade off punches to Kai and send her into the corner. After a running forearm, LeRae knocks a recuperating Green off the apron. Nox and Yim give Kai cannonballs in the corner and give an assist to LeRae so she can give one of her own. But Io Shirai issues a missile dropkick to Nox & Yim and a flapjack to a charging LeRae. Shirai goes to the outside and grabs a ladder from under the ring while Green and Robert Stone slide out a table from the opposite side. Shirai tries to set up the ladder but LeRae walks up it to try and grab the briefcase. Shirai drops the ladder and tussles with LeRae. Step-up Enziguri by LeRae staggers Shirai but Green charges into the ring and bulldogs both face-first into the ladder!

*Commercial Break*

We’re back from break, the ring is cleared of the ladder and Green has a chair in hand as she slides into the ring. Yim pulls Green’s legs out from under her, causing her to land face-first onto the chair. Yim & Green battle on the outside while Nox & Kai renew their disgust for each other inside. The two continue to brawl around the ring exchanging kicks, forearms & uppercuts until Nox plants Kai with a chokeslam.

Green tries sliding a ladder into the ring from the outside but Nox stops her and pushes her into the barricade. Nox cinches up the ladder and starts to climb but Kai meets her up there. LeRae then pulls Kai off the ladder and starts to stare at a prone Nox. Before the two can ascend, Kai & Green attack both from behind. Kai & Green start to climb the ladder but Yim & Shirai attack them from behind. Now Yim and Shirai start their ascension. LeRae and Nox set up another ladder while Green and Kai cut off Yim and Shirai. Yim is still on the ladder and is fingertips away but LeRae pulls her down. Yim connects with Eat DeFeet on LeRae and makes for the ladder again.

But Green, with chair in hand, smashes it across Yim’s back bringing her off the ladder. Green tosses the chair to Yim, catching it, Green tries to connect with a boot but Yim sidesteps. Green’s leg is caught in a ladder bridged in the corner and Yim smashes Green’s knee with the chair. Shirai charges out of nowhere with a dropkick to Yim’s face and continues the reconstructive surgery with a catapult into the ladder.

Shirai is now making her way up the ladder but Raquel Gonzalez gets into the ring. She tips the ladder over, Shirai steps onto the top rope and leaps off of it sending a plancha to the rest of the women on the outside!

*Commercial Break*

We return to the carnage and Gonzalez sends LeRae out of the ring. She makes her way outside to Dakota Kai and helps her back into the ring. Gonzalez has Kai in a fireman’s carry and is climbing the ladder with Kai on her shoulders. Yim rushes into the ring to attack Gonzalez but Kai is now on the ladder! LeRae sends Kai crashing to the canvas pulling her off the ladder. Yim and Gonzalez fight into the corner and the situation turns with Yim looking to powerbomb Gonzalez off the apron into a table on the outside! Nox climbs to Gonzalez, a chokehold… and sends Gonzalez and Yim off the ring and into the table!

Kai charges after Nox with a boot to the face, sending her off the apron and crashing through a bridged ladder! LeRae is climbing the ladder now and Kai meets her on top of it on the opposite side. Shirai leaps off the turnbuckle, pulling Kai off the ladder after Kai hit LeRae in the face with the dangling briefcase. LeRae and Shirai tussle in the ring, trading German Suplexes. Chelsea Green, still wincing from the attack on her knee, claws her way back into the ring with Stone cheering her on. Green slowly makes her way up, but Stone rushes into the ring and stands on the opposite side of the ladder hoping to stabilize it and help Green up it. Green has her fingertips on it but LeRae and Shirai tip the ladder over, sending Stone crashing down and Green sprawling her damaged knee on the top rope!

It’s LeRae and Shirai at the top of the ladder again, trading slaps back and forth. Shirai rakes LeRae’s eyes and pushes her off, sending her back-first into the bridged table in the corner of the ring! Shirai climbs the ladder and retrieves the briefcase!


Highlights air from the match and everyone lies on the outside of the ring nursing their injuries as Shirai holds the briefcase over her head in victory.
