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
