Doudrop took on Zelina Vega at the Crown Jewel PPV in the final of the Queen’s Crown tournament after getting through some tough matches in the earlier rounds. But unfortunately for Doudrop, she lost in the finals, as Zelina Vega made history by becoming the winner of the very first Queen’s Crown tournament.

Doudrop looked in complete control of the match. It was looking like more of a formality for Doudrop. But Zelina Vega had some other plans. Just as Doudrop with going to hit Zelina Vega with a cannonball in the corner, Zelina escaped it and hit Doudrop with a double knee to Doudrop’s face.

But Doudrop showed her strength again as she hit Zelina with a big sidewalk slam for a close pinfall. She then attempted to hit a big splash on Zelina Vega. But ultimately, it was Vega who got the win after she moved out of the big splash and hit Doudrop with a Code Red Powerbomb.

For the past few weeks on Raw, Shayna had taken out Nia Jax and Eva Marie by potentially dislocating their elbows. Shayna was the hot favorite to win the match. Baszler even caught Doudrop in the Kirifuda Clutch. But Doudrop countered it with a reverse pin for the win.
