Rhea Ripley vs. Dana Brooke

Now we shoot back inside the Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville where the SmackDown Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley emerges and makes her way down to the ring for our next match of the evening.

Ripley settles inside the squared circle and her theme music dies down and Dominik Mysterio takes his place at ringside. Now we shoot to a split-screen “earlier today” interview, which shows Dana Brooke vowing to show her “untapped potential.”

From there, we hear the theme music for Dana Brooke as the women’s wrestling star makes her way down to the ring to challenge the champ. The bell sounds and we’re officially off-and-running with this one.

We see Ripley dominate straight out of the gate. She dominates for the first two minutes or so of the bout and then Brooke connects with a DDT. Right after that, however, she leaps off the top-rope and is caught and Donkey Kong’d into the mat by Ripley.

Ripley follows that up by hitting a Rip-Tide. She then grabs up the legs of Dana and slaps a prison lock submission on her for the tap out victory.

Winner: Rhea Ripley

They replayed clips of last week’s angle with Dana Brooke and Reggie.

As Reggie made his ring entrance, Saxton said he’ll let Reggie know it’s not all that bad being the friendzone.

Reggie said he just came out there to get something off his chest. He said first he wanted to bring Dana Brooke out to the ring. She made her entrance to her music. She looked perplexed. Reggie told her he has been very supportive of her winning the 24/7 Title from the beginning. He said he cared for her, more than just friends, but he gets she only wanted to be friends. He said last week he lost sight of what was important and took advantage of an opportunity. He said he just couldn’t resist, but it left him with a horrible feeling all week. He said from the bottom of his heart, he is sorry. He said he also wanted to show her how much she means to him. He asked for a referee. Reggie lay on his back and let Dana cover him. The ref counted, but Reggie kicked out. He told her to do it again. She did. He kicked out at two again. Reggie smiled. He talked her into trying again. She did, but this time she kissed him and got the three count. Reggie popped up, looking happy with how that turned out. R-Truth charged to the ring. Reggie dropkicked him. Dana knocked Akira Tozawa off the ring apron into the arms of Tamina. He puckered up, but Tamina dropped him. Dana ran to the back as the parade of others followed her.
