Asuka vs Deonna Purrazzo
WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions The Kabuki Warriors – Asuka with Kairi Sane are out. Kairi Sane is reported to have suffered a concussion but is accompanying Asuka here.

Before the bell could ring, Purrazzo hits a dropkick on Asuka to send her out of the ring. Asuka is furious as we go back to commercial.
Asuka rushes Deonna in the corner as soon as the bell rings. Asuka hits a running hip strike. Purrazzo brings Asuka down into an armbar.

Asuka hits a knee to the face. She hits an atomic drop and follows it with several kicks to the head. She applies the Asuka Lock for the win.
We go backstage and Becky Lynch is with Charly Caruso. Charly brings up the TLC main event loss to WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions The Kabuki Warriors and how she’s handling the loss. Becky admits she has been off and not herself for the past few months as she was put into the tag team division. She thought at first that the powers that be were trying to bury her, but it’s worse – they’re trying to protect her.
Becky says that she is now WWE’s golden goose and they don’t want that to end. Becky says they are trying to protect her from Asuka. She didn’t come this far to be protected. Lynch turns to the camera to deliver a message to Asuka and says that she needs Asuka because Asuka is the one person she hasn’t been able to beat. Asuka has had her number but she needs that to change, not for the company or the title, but because Lynch needs to prove something to herself.
AJ Style vs Randy Orton
Orton ducks a punch and unloads on Styles with hard right hands. AJ barely avoids the RKO and rolls out of the ring. Orton taunts him a bit before hitting a suplex on the apron.
