Winner: Lacey Evans

After the match, Lacey wonders how Mr. Regal can let the lowest levels of societal trash walk around the women’s division. It is time for a proper, sophisticated, powerful woman clean house. Lacey says she will start with the classless psychos like Nikki Cross or the confused Ember Moon or the pathetic Kairi.

Shayna refuses to release the hold despite efforts from the referee. Ember Moon’s music plays and she makes her way to the ring and Shayna is able to get to higher ground. Ember asks Shayna if she wants to bully someone, she dares Shayna to try that with her. Ember tells Shayna to get in the ring so they can do this right now. Shayna ays she doesn’t have her gear so she will do it another time. Ember tells Shayna to name the time and place and she will bring the title. She tells Shayna not to forget her gear because she will beat her ass. Shayna tells her Philadelphia and she tells Ember to remember her title.
