We open with a video recap of TakeOver XXV.

Keith Lee vs. Kona Reeves

“Bask in his glory” chants. Lee uses his power to fight out of a wrist lock. He turns it into a knuckle lock. Reeves goes to the apron and Lee pulls him back in with just the one hand on the knuckle lock. Reeves tries to jump over to the outside to break it. Lee holds on and lifts him back inside. Reeves finally gets out and leaps over Lee, tweaking his knee. It was a ruse as Reeves gets in a cheap headbutt. Reeves takes control and talks trash. He gets a one count and goes to a chin lock. Reeves fires off shots and talks more trash. Lee begins to no sell and fires up. He levels Reeves a few times, leaps over and hits a cross body. Reeves comes back and hits a uranage for a near fall. That pisses Lee off. Lee stops Reeves with a huge Pounce and then hits Ground Zero to win.

Winner: Keith Lee in 6:05 [**]

They lock up and Bianca shoves her instead of giving a clean break in the corner. She slams mia to the mat and taunts. Mia pops up and slams her back.

Bianca fights out but takes a tilt-a-whirl gutbuster for two. Bow and arrow submission by Bianca. Though Mia gets out, Bianca still drops her weight on her. My feed cuts out a bit and returns to see Mia trying to get an armbar applied. Bianca blocked it and kept working the ribs, pulling her across the ring post. However, Mia pulled her shoulder first into the ring post. They fight outside where Bianca wants a Glam Slam. Mia counters and sends her face first into the steel steps. Back inside, Mia fires off some kicks, capped by a dropkick. Bianca escapes the corner, misses a shoulder thrust and is put in the Tarantula. Mia lets go and turns it into Code Blue for two. Mia adds a few more kicks. but Bianca hits a release German suplex. Mia kicks out and Bianca wraps up her braid as she goes for the Alley Oop. It’s what Mia used to counter last time. Mia still counters, pulling her into a guillotine. Spin kick by Mia when Bianca gets free.Bianca hits a back elbow and leaps over Mia. She runs into a  boot. Mia comes off the second rope with a modified version of Sole Food that ends it.
