Trinity started the match off hot by dominating her former rival. She hit the splits and a hurricanrana before Shaw rolled out to regroup. On the outside, Trinity went for another headscissors off the apron, but Shaw caught her and swung her into the steps.
From there, Shaw took control and picked the champ apart by stomping on her a few times. Trinity’s comeback started with a kick that was followed by a ton of slaps and strikes to set up a Samoan Drop.
Shaw came back with Shock and Awe, but Trinity followed it with a facebuster from the apron. Savannah Evans stepped up on the apron, which then set up Jai Vidal tripping Shaw after thinking it would be Trinity approaching. Trinity then capitalized by planting Shaw into the mat and tapping her out with Starstruck.
After, Evans attacked Trinity until Mickie James made the save. James got on the mic and praised Trinity. She got emotional when recalling how Trinity had a “glow up” and won the title while James was out injured. However, Mickie has never faced Trinity and she’s owed a rematch. As a result, James has officially challenged Trinity to a Knockouts title bout at Bound For Glory.
Next week’s show will feature Jordynne Grace opposing Jody Threat and KiLynn King in a 10-person tag bout to preview the upcoming Call Your Shot gauntlet. The winning squad will then face each other to determine the #1 and #20 entries. Plus, Tasha Steelz will face Killer Kelly.
