Alicia is backstage with Kiera Hogan and Allie, and asks why they saved Tessa Blanchard last week. Allie says Tessa accuses them of having a hidden agenda, but she made a promise that what happened to her, to Madison, and to Rosemary wouldn’t happen to anyone else, not even a spoiled, entitled little brat like Tessa Blanchard. Su’s not the champion anymore, but her reign of terror is far from over.
Knockouts Title Match: Tessa Blanchard vs Su Yung
Both ladies go for an early finish, and both fail to score that quick win. Su gets the filthy glove and goes for a mandible claw, but Tessa sees it coming and bails out to the floor. Tessa comes back in and is quickly obliterated by Su, who bites her in the corner and then straight up Beell tosses her across the ring, then does it again. Tessa slips out and gets a seated variation of the Indian deathlock, but Su rolls over and gets the mandible claw. Tessa fights her way out and gets a butterfly lock, rolls onto her own back, and the ref counts 2 on her before she releases. Tessa with some power offense, and a hard short clothesline gets 2. Josh points out that the undead bridesmaids aren’t at ringside as Tessa goes and gets a chair, and the referee takes it away, distracting her long enough for Su to hit a baseball slide, slap Tessa into the chair, pull her shirt off, and bowl through Tessa with a rolling senton off the apron. Su gets 2 back in the ring, then chokes Tessa with her boot in the corner. Su drags Tessa to the top rope, but Tessa catches her with a top rope Ace Crusher, and Su convulses on the mat as Tessa crawls over and makes a cover for…2! We’re at commercial.
We come back as Su goes for a Panic Switch, but Tessa slips out and hits the hammerlock DDT for the win.
Winner: Tessa Blanchard
The undead bridesmaids come out after the match with a casket that they set down, open, and walk away. Su attacks Tessa from behind, gives her the Panic Switch, and drags her up to the casket and throws her inside. She closes the lower half, but then Allie and Kiera Hogan run out and fight her off, double superkicking her off the ramp. They help Tessa out of the casket, but she shoves them off and says she doesn’t need any friends.
We see a video package of the history between Su Yung, Allie, and Tessa Blanchard, then we go to Alicia with Tessa Blanchard, who says she’s been under pressure her whole life to live up to the accomplishments of her grandfather, stepfather, and father. Being a great athlete or in a title match might be enough for some people, but being a Blanchard, that’s not enough unless you have something to show for it, and that means taking home the gold. So tonight with everyone watching it, she’s going to go out there and take it for herself.
