Good afternoon Fight Fans! We hope your day is going well and are ready for NXT UK featuring a grudge match between Piper Niven and Rhea Ripley!
Piper Niven vs Rhea Ripley
They lock up and Piper locks in a headlock before Piper drops Rhea with a shoulder block and misses a running senton before Rhea drives her into the corner. Rhea drives her shoulder into the midsection of Piper and beats on her before locking in a Steiner recliner and slams her down before locking in a variation of a Boston crab. Piper reverses into a heel hook before Rhea kicks her away and plays to the crowd before reapplying the Steiner recliner, Piper getting to her feet and falling back and driving Rhea to the mat to break the hold. They get to their feet and chop each other until Piper hits a back suplex into a cannonball a splash off of the top for a near fall before Rhea drops her with a boot. Rhea then goes for the Riptide, but Piper counters and hits a running cross body for a near fall before Rhea counters a Michinoku driver into the Riptide for the pin and the win.
Winner: Rhea Ripley defeats Piper Niven via pinfall with the Riptide.
