Multiple times throughout the match, it seemed as if Baszler had the win in the bag, locking Lynch into multiple submissions including a devastating Kirifuda Clutch. However, during one of the last submissions, Lynch – who was nearly knocked out from the hold – was able to flip herself up, pinning Baszler into the ring and likely stealing a win in stunning fashion.
