“WWE: Then. Now. Forever.”
We open with a video package looking at Asuka’s reign as NXT Women’s Champion comes to an end, and new challengers emerge. Kairi Sane being the first, this week begins a series of triple threat matches to determine the other contenders to the title at Takeover: Houston! With that, the NXT intro brings us to a packed crowd at Full Sail as the Iconic Duo make their way to the ring, with Peyton Royce preparing for our opening match. Out next is Liv Morgan, followed by Nikki Cross before this match gets underway!
Triple Threat Match (Winner advances to the NXT Women’s Championship match at Takeover: Houston)
Peyton Royce vs Liv Morgan vs Nikki Cross
The three women circle the ring, and Nikki taunts Peyton as does Liv. Nikki grabs Liv’s arm to do a double clothesline, sending Peyton out of the ring before Nikki rolls Liv up to no avail. Liv hits a head scissors takedown on Cross and dodges a clothesline as Cross slides out of the ring. Royce back in the ring, and Liv hits a step up enziguri that sends Royce back out as Cross comes back in, continuing her previous attack on Liv. Cross with a chokehold on Liv while up on her back, but Liv sends her to the corner to break the hold. Royce goes for a spinning hook kick but misses, and Cross shoves Liv into Royce before jumping onto them…only for Liv and Royce to catch her, and they hit her with a double fall forward slam. Cross rolls out of the ring as Liv and Royce focus the attack on each other, exchanging blows before Royce shoves Liv down. Liv on the ropes now as Royce locks in a Tarantula that can’t be broken by the ref because of the no DQ rules! Cross jumps up, dragging Royce down to pull her off Liv before she climbs up top hitting a missile dropkick on Liv. Cross unloads on Royce before knocking Kay off the apron and going after Liv. Peyton pulls Cross off and Cross retaliates, before Liv gets involved again only to take a hangman neckbreaker that gives Cross a nearfall. Cross sets Liv up on the top rope but is stopped by Royce, who climbs up with a front face lock…and Cross comes running in, hitting a tower of doom spot in the process! We see Taynara Conti up on the stage with Undisputed Era, who coach her to head down to the ring and interfere. This causes Nikki to get rolled up by Royce who gets a nearfall. Cross with a neckbreaker on Royce now, gets a two count before Liv breaks it up. Cross sets Liv up in the corner, swinging neckbreaker gets a two count before Conti pulls her out of the ring. Cross is livid, chasing Conti into the ring before she gets taken down with a fisherman’s suplex by Royce who picks up the win!
