Allie vs. Tessa Blanchard

Lots of trash talk early as the bell sounds. Allie has the advantage early, but Blanchard gains control and unloads with clubbing blows.

Allie comes back with a buckle suplex. Blanchard blocks the BSE and locks in an Indian Deathlock. Allie fights back and sends Blanchard outside.

Backstabber gets 2. Blanchard fights back and hits a Super Rana, with Allie landing right on her head, for a close 2. Ouch!
