Various weapons were used in this match such as kendo sticks, ladders, and more. There was a spot where Io was locked out of the ring after Indie Heartwell attacked her and stole the key. A notable spot saw Io put a trash can on her head before jumping on everyone from the top of the cage. The finish saw Gonzalez power bomb Io through a ladder between the ropes. 

Last year’s women’s match saw Rhea Ripley, Mia Yim, Tegan Nox & Candice LeRae beat Shayna Baszler, Bianca Belair, Io Shirai & Kay Lee Ray. 

The next special for NXT comes during Royal Rumble weekend with the NXT TakeOver: special in January.
