We get a backstage promo from Allie, who says that she wouldn’t have thought of herself as ready a year ago, but now she is, and she’s going to win the Knockouts Title for her mentor, Gail Kim. We hit a video package looking at the history between Allie and Laurel Van Ness.
Knockouts Title Match: Laurel Van Ness vs Allie
Allie gets the jump on Laurel right at the start of the match, but that doesn’t last long, as Laurel unloads with a flurry of frantic offense. Laurel with a Natural Selection, but doesn’t go for the cover, and Allie surprises Laurel with a VICIOUS slap to the face and release German suplex. Laurel hits a quick drop toehold into the bottom rope and then heads up top, but Allie avoids the double stomp and hits a dropkick, and both ladies are down. Allie is up first and she’s a house of fire, running Laurel over with a series of clotheslines and a snap suplex into the corner for 2. Allie grabs Laurel’s ankle and uses it to lever her over the top rope. Allie goes to the floor, but Laurel quickly rams her into the ring apron, then sits her in a chair and tries a charge, but Allie sidesteps and sends Laurel into the chair. Allie sits Laurel in the chair, and she connects with a charging elbow. Allie picks her up, but Laurel hits an Unprettier out of nowhere, then rolls into the ring and lets the referee count. Allie just barely misses the count, and an infuriated Laurel unleashes a flurry of stomps before curb stomping Allie into the bottom turnbuckle multiple times. Allie doesn’t look like she knows where she is as Laurel hits a running curb stomp. Laurel makes a cover, but Allie gets the bottom rope at 2, and Laurel now can’t believe it. Laurel grabs the belt from ringside and takes a swing at Allie, but Allie ducks and hits a death valley driver. Allie drills Laurel with a superkick and makes a cover, and we have a new Knockouts Champion!
