It was a first-time-ever match-up. Jax was all fired up and started some trash-talk with Ripley after the bell rang. The two locked up in a classic wrestling stance and Jax took it to the corner, man-handling Rhea.

Nia Jax bleeds profusely

The match-up between the former women’s champions was great in terms of physicality, but Nia Jax got busted open halfway through the match.

Ripley was getting the upper hand during the match as she went to the top and nailed a missile dropkick for a close two count on Nia. She then turned it around quickly and went for a powerbomb. But Ripley sat on her shoulder and fought it.

While Jax was stuck, Ripley landed a few punches while she was sitting on her shoulders and turned that into a takedown.

Once the camera zoomed in on Nia, she was seen bleeding from the corner of her eye and seemed really shocked after the spot. She then delivered the running leg drop in the middle of the ring for a close 2 count.

However, Jax continued to fight the match as her face got more bloody. Towards the end of the match, Baszler got on the apron to yell at Ripley.
