The bell rings and Lana starts things off with a kick to the back of Charlotte’s leg. Charlotte responds with chops to Lana in the corner before Natalya attacks her from behind. Becky inadvertently spears Charlotte thanks to Tamina and Flair rolls out. Tamina whips Becky to the ropes and Lana pulls her ankles. Lana pulls Becky out and throws her into the announce table.

Lana then drags Natalya out before climbing into the ring and in comes Charlotte. Tamina enters before Charlotte can get to Lana and they start double-teaming the Queen. Tamina looks for a body slam but Charlotte climbs down her back and slams her by her hair. Charlotte looks to fight Lana but again Tamina grabs her and Lana hits two head kicks. Tamina with a suplex to Charlotte and Lana picks the bones by kicking her in the back.

Lana attacks Charlotte in the corner, then Tamina chops her before both stomp on Flair. Becky finally returns and attacks Lana and Charlotte goes to work on Tamina. We get a Bexploder on Lana and one from Charlotte on Tamina! Becky and Charlotte are alone and they exchange some quick holds, pin attempts and arm-drags from Lynch. Charlotte catches Becky with a great swinging neckbreaker and then Natalya runs in and hits a dropkick to a seated Charlotte for a two-count.

Becky starts on Natalya, hitting back elbows and a kick to the mid-section before a Bexploder. Lana runs in and finds herself n the receiving end of a Bexploder as well. Tamina runs in and Becky grabs her for a Bexploder too but Tamina shoves her away and hits a superkick. Tamina hits Natalya with a Samoan drop and in comes Charlotte. Natalya comes back and applies a Sharpshooter to Flair but Lana appears and bulldog’s Natalya off. Becky Lynch comes back and grabs Lana with the Dis-Arm-Her but Tamina kicks her off.
