It should be Rhea Ripley facing Io Shirai for the NXT Women’s Championship at NXT Takeover XXX, but the Robert Stone Brand refuses to leave her alone. Their new ace in Mercedes Martinez would attack her during the match with Kai, furthering their rivalry. When it was just Stone & Aliyah, she had control of the situation, but she will need aid from Shotzi Blackheart on this night. Will Ripley finally get past Robert Stone Brand?
Also, yes. Robert Stone is still terrified of Shotzi Blackheart and her tank. Never forget that she ran over both his legs with that tank.
Shotzi Blackheart Gets Isolated
Ripley would get to start this match with Martinez, though Aliyah would be quickly tagged in. Aliyah would be thrown across the ring and Blackheart would tag in and take the fight to Aliyah with ease. A cannonball senton to the back, a reverse slingblade, and more would punish her. However, one tag to Martinez is all it took to get this match back in control. It’s clear who the true forces in this match are.
Coming back from commercial break, Blackheart would be in the ring with Aliyah, with Aliyah hitting a neckbreaker and getting a near fall. Martinez would come in and nail a big knee strike, and Ripley would be desperate for a tag. Blackheart was isolated as quick tags would be made in the Robert Stone Brand corner.
A snap butterfly suplex would get a near fall, then Blackheart would be choked on the ropes. The fisherman buster attempt would be countered into a small package, and a big DDT on Martinez would allow Blackheart to crawl to her corner to make the tag.
Rhea Ripley Gets Revenge On Robert Stone Brand
Aliyah would come in at the same time as Ripley, and she’d be run through by the former champion. An electric chair facebuster would have ended this match, but Martinez made the save. Ripley would be hit with the riptide, and Blackheart looked for the senton.
Stone would distract the referee, Martinez would shove Blackheart down and a brawl between her and Ripley would break out. This would end with Martinez being powerbombed over the barricade onto concrete, and then Blackheart hit a senton to beat Aliyah. Revenge is sweet.
This left fans wanting a big singles match between Ripley & Martinez. Is this win enough to the end of this feud? Let us know what you think in the comment section down below.
