Their fierce battle took them outside the conventional boundaries of the ring, even leading them into the heart of the crowd and up the stairs.
However, once back inside the ropes, Stratton showcased her prowess by wielding a crowbar, hammer, and steel steps, temporarily sidelining "The Man." Both superstars showcased their grit and resilience to a fervent NXT audience in a bout that witnessed the eclectic use of Barbie dolls, hammers, crowbars, trash cans, and the shopping above the cart.
As the match neared its climax, Stratton displayed her dominance with a spinebuster onto a trash can and a subsequent powerbomb on Lynch atop the steel steps. However, in a surprising twist, Lynch retaliated with a fire extinguisher and a barbed wire baseball bat, nodding to the iconic Cactus Jack.
As the intensity peaked, both athletes crashed through the barricades, with Stratton executing a Swanton bomb from the top rope, crashing through a table and eliciting the famed "This Is Awesome" chants from the crowd. Despite Stratton's valiant efforts, it was Lynch who capitalized on a missed moonsault by her adversary.
Seizing the opportunity, Lynch landed her signature Man-Handle Slam, ensuring her victory and the continuation of her reign as NXT Women's Champion. Fans can eagerly anticipate Lynch's next challenge as she faces Tegan Nox in an upcoming episode of WWE Raw.
