They get back in the ring and Conti gains the upper hand, focusing on the left arm of Nikki before Nikki comes back with a series of clotheslines and puts Conti in the tree of woe. Nikki then hits a reverse DDT and a fisherman's spinning neckbreaker for the pin and the win.

Aichner hits a powerbomb for a near fall before they exchange strikes until Aichner hits a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker.
