The two had a hard-hitting match that saw Satomura dazzle with damaging kicks throughout. The champion looked to be in danger several times and was even slammed onto the apron. However, the younger wrestler proved to be too much for Satomura and Ray retained her belt after hitting a Gory Bomb. The two embraced in the ring afterward as respect was shown on both sides.

“I had all the intentions of the world. I wanted the best,” said Kay Lee Ray after the match. “I wanted to prove a point … I proved that point. Thank you, Meiko. Thank you for everything. I respect you so much but I had to do that. I had to win … Not for NXT UK but for me.”
