Towards the end of their match, Ripley found herself outside of the ring, when Io Shirai came running down and delivered a 619 to Ripley. While Shirai thought that this would have ended the match, Ripley was able to keep things going, forcing Shirai to try once again to interfere. However, as she attempted to distract the referee, Candice LeRae came running down, pulling Shirai off the mat and stopping any of the shenanigans.
