Becky Lynch vs. Zoey Stark
Kevin Patrick and Corey Graves run down the advertised lineup for tonight’s show and then we return inside Amalie Arena live where the familiar sounds of Becky Lynch’s theme hits and out comes “The Man” for our first match of the evening.
Becky Lynch goes one-on-one against Zoey Stark where if she wins, she gets the rematch she wants against Trish Stratus, but if she loses, she must get “Thank you, Trish” tattooed on herself. We head to a pre-match commercial break as Lynch settles in the ring.
When we return from the break, the commentators confirm Zayn-Dom for the NXT North American Championship for tonight’s main event. Lynch is shown waiting in the ring for the arrival of her opposition.
The theme for Zoey Stark hits and out she comes accompanied by WWE Hall of Fame legend Trish Stratus, who is still wearing her face protector. The bell sounds and we’re officially off-and-running with our opening contest of the evening.
Lynch charges across the ring and puts the boots to a slumping Stark in the corner as the fans chant “Becky! Becky!” We see Stark roll out to the floor to re-group with Trish before heading back in and being decked right back out to the floor by Lynch, who follows out with a big baseball slide drop kick.
As the action continues on the floor, Lynch continues to dominate. Back in the ring, Stark hits a big shot that shifts the offensive momentum in her favor for the first tine in the bout. Stark hits a slingshot swirling splash onto Lynch for a close near fall attempt. After Lynch kicks out, we head to a mid-match commercial break as the action continues.
When we return from the break, we see Lynch in control until she is on the floor and Trish blasts her with a headbutt while wearing the face protector. Stark hits a super kick and goes for the cover but Lynch kicks out and ends up connecting with her Man Handle Slam moments later for the win. With the win, Becky gets the rematch she wants against Trish.
Winner: Becky Lynch
