Sasha Banks came into NXT Great American Bash looking for a statement win against Io Shirai. Instead, she was the unfortunate recipient of Asuka’s Green Mist, as the WWE RAW Women’s Champion returned to help her friend take down Banks.
The match between Shirai and Banks was every bit as incredible as fans would hope, as the two superstars went at it for most of the affair. Towards the end, however, things got a bit chaotic, as Bayley stepped in to assist her friend, distracting the referee by tossing in Shirai’s NXT Women’s Championship in order to hit Shirai while the referee wasn’t looking. Thankfully for Shirai, though, her own friend was there, as Asuka popped up from underneath the ring to deliver the Green Mist to Banks. Banks survived the pin attempt, but Shirai landed a moonsault soon after that ended things.
