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.
Knockouts Title Match: Su Yung vs Allie vs Tessa Blanchard
Three way brawl starts us off, and Allie gets the advantage and hits a double senton on both opponents for 2. Allie ping pongs back and forth across the ring with corner clotheslines, then covers Su for 2. Su goes to the eyes to floor Allie, then puts the boots to her while we see that Kiera Hogan is outside the ring for some reason. Allie knocks Su off the apron, but the bridesmaids catch her and pop her right back onto the apron to stare Tessa down. Allie unloads on both of them with forearms, then springboards off Tessa’s back with another forearm that lays Su out on the apron. Tessa catches Allie with an Ace Crusher for 2. Tessa with an Indian deathlock on Allie, but Su comes in with a modified Royal Octopus hold on Tessa. The submission convention breaks up, Su crawls up the corner and gets a headscissors on Allie, and she goes to the top rope but Tessa picks her up in a press slam and tosses her down onto the bridesmaids. Allie goes after Tessa and suplexes her into the corner for 2. Su is back in with the mandible claw on Tessa, Allie superkicks Tessa into next week, then Su gets the mandible claw on Allie. Allie counters ot a lungblower, and Tessa quickly scoots in and rolls Allie up with a handful of tights for the win.
