Below is an excerpt of the match from Fightful's live coverage as well as highlights of the match.

We come back to Taya in control until Grace comes back with a German suplex and a suicide dive before tossing Taya back into the ring. John chokes Grace while Taya distracts the referee before rocking Grace with a pop-up knee. Grace comes back with a spinebuster and forearms before hitting a scoop slam and a falcon arrow for two. Taya powerbombs Grace onto the steps and hits the Road to Valhalla onto the stage before going back to the ring, seemingly fine with a count out victory. Grace gets back into the ring before being counted out for a near fall when she grabs the ropes. Grace pulls Taya off of the top turnbuckle and sets her up herself before hitting a muscle buster for a near fall. Taya locks in an armbar before Grace locks in a cross face and Taya gets to the ropes for the break before Jordynne hits a Vader bomb into a Michinoku driver for a near fall that John breaks up by pulling the referee out of the ring. Taya then accidentally spears John before Grace rolls her up for a near fall and John covers Taya before she hits a diving senton into a Michinoku driver for the pin and the win.

Winner: Jordynne Grace defeats Taya Valkyrie via pinfall with a Michinoku driver to become the new Knockouts champion.

As mentioned, Valkyrie's reign as the Knockouts Champion was historic in more ways than one. Valkyrie holds the record for most total days as champion as well as having the longest single reign in Knockouts history and is the first woman to hold the Knockouts title for more than a year.

The title change actually took place several weeks ago at the tapings for this show.
