The finish saw Gonzalez hit a big clothesline and her chokeslam/powerbomb combo to put Shirai away.

This marks Gonzalez' first reign as NXT Women's Champion. She is a former NXT Women's Tag Team Champion.

Shirai won the title at NXT TakeOver: In Your House on June 7, 2020 when she defeated Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair in a triple threat match.
