Jaida Parker walks down to ringside as the match is
underway. Parker provides guest commentary, joining Booker T
and Vic Joseph at the announce desk. Meanwhile, Michin and
Paxley wrestle through a split-screen commercial break.

The match really picked up in the closing moments. They did
a spot where Paxley is trying to play mind games, so Michin
gets on her level… literally. Michin lands in the ropes
tranquilo style, while Paxley bends herself backwards in a
creepy pose. Michin then crouches down and crawls to met
Paxley face to face. Michin does the too sweet hand sign,

adamant he did not do it.

In another skit, Arianna Grace tries to reason with Lola
Vice about accepting the challenge for an Underground match
at Battleground. Grace cautions Vice about such a match
against Shayna Baszler. With the setting, the bad acting,
and the outfits, it came off silly. Vice did sort of save
the skit at the end with a warning that she too is dangerous
in the cage. Grace then dropped a curse word, but it was
bleeped out. The point of all this is to set up a match for
later on with Vice against Grace.

to jump off the middle rope, Holland trips him up with a
kick. Osborne crashes into the ring, and Holland goes for a
finisher. Holland executes The Redeemer, and Holland scores
a three count.

This was supposed to settle the issue between Holland and

a sore loser.

opponent for Roxanne Perez at Battleground for the NXT
Women’s Championship

NXT Women’s Champion. Before her reign the title meant ”
future greatness instead of present greatness,” but she is
true greatness.

Nattie. Natalya’s partner, Karmen Petrovic, takes exception
to Dame disrespecting Nattie. Petrovic brawls with Dame,
seemingly setting up a match between the two.

Dante Chen defeated Lexis King

Chen wins again in this rematch. The bout itself was rather
short, and the finish was sudden. Although not a fluke, Chen
basically caught King out of nowhere. King delivered a
jackhammer for a near fall. King argues with the referee
over the cover, allowing Chen to catch him with a crucifix.
Chen scores another clean three count on King.

Angry over a second loss to Chen, King attacks Chen after
