Trish Stratus & Lita def. Mickie James & Alicia Fox via pinfall: A harm to Alexa Bliss transformed her into ring sides after cutting a pre-match promo. The match, which gave plenty of nostalgic moments to the very vocal and energetic audience, built against a hot tag to Stratus, which revived the fires of her legendary rivalry with James. The final was, however, inevitably sloppy when Trish beat James with Stratusfaction, but Fox was noticeably late to break the pin. Not only was James on the camera shouting for Fox to get there, the referee sincerely held his hand to avoid counting James out like Fox Pigeon. Lita hit Fox with a twist of fate before landing a litasault on both heels. James followed with a Chick Kick on James for 1
-2-3. Rating: C
Nia Jax wins 20 Women Battle Royal: What started a bit slow and sloppy to give time to the many legends involved turn into a big Part of the activities along the route like WWE women today got a strong headlight to shine. The booking was strong when Jax stood high at the end after having had fun shutings against both Tamina Snuka and Ember Moon. After his victory, Jax was emotional among a series of “you deserve it” chants from the audience. She wanted to go to Ronda Rousey and Nikki Bella in her title match later in the night but said that her entire focus is Raw Women’s Championship.
The match began with a disrespectful promo from the IIconics who saw the veterans in the match to eliminate Billie Kay and Peyton Royce first. The match continued the comedy later when Carmella demanded a dance break and was united by Ivory, who lasted until the last five and became the top player among legends. The 56-year-old WWE Hall of Famer even hit the top of Jax. Chants of “N-X-T” filled the arena like the moon and Asuka had fun, which meant that Moon eliminated her. But the match seemed to come down to Moon and Jax, both of whom were tied to the rope when Moon tried everything in its power to eliminate her much bigger friend. Zelina Vega, who was never eliminated and hit the ring, ran in and thought she had eliminated both. Vega celebrated too early, and Jax paid a huge tribute to Andre Giant in the WrestleMania II battle royal by eliminating her via pressure slamm on Snuka outside before throwing the moon-the clear fans in the match-over the top ratchet. Rating: B
Toni Storm def. Io Shirai via pinback to win 2018 Mae Young Classic: Credit WWE to give the future of her women’s division as big a platform as Storm and Shirai, both apparently the intention to steal the show, almost did it. The only criticism is that they did not have enough time to show even more of their incredible talent. Storm, the 23-year-old native of Australia, and 28-year-old Shirai, who was already a star in Japan, lacked nothing in terms of intensity, hard crime and flying spots. Athletic Shirai hit a jumping dropkick to hit Storm from the top rope before landing a fantastic moonsult on the floor to pop the crowd. Shirai later paid her hero Rey Mysterio Jr. with a 619 before landing a springboard sunset wreck that almost won her match.
The final came after Shirai Asai Moonsault landed on Storm’s knee. Storm then followed with his second Storm Zero in the match, this time secured 1-2-3. Both wrestlers hugged afterwards in an emotional scene as they were presented with flowers by Stephanie McMahon and the head NXT Women’s Trainer Sara Amato. Triple H was also on hand to present the Mae Young Classic trophy. Rating: B +
