Second round matches —

The crowd loved this match. There was a big near fall with a slam off the ropes by Evers, but Laith hit a powerbomb and a roll forward pin to score the victory.

– Piper Niven defeated Serena Deeb

Deeb kicked out of a Vader Bomb but wasn’t able to handle the forward slam driver. They built well to the finish.

Martinez wouldn’t tap while Sugehit had an armbar locked in. Martinez then hit a fisherman suplex to get the pin.

– Kairi Sane defeated Bianca Belair

The atmosphere for this one was absolutely amazing, with Belair being booed for whipping Sane with her hair. Belair used huge power moves and the crowd was biting on every near fall. She even missed a 450 splash before Sane hit her flying elbow to win it.

– Toni Storm defeated Lacey Evans

Storm won with an over-the-knee neckbreaker.

– Shayna Baszler defeated Mia Yim

Both sets of Four Horsewomen were represented in each front row ramp section to watch this (Ronda Rousey, Marina Shafir, and Jessamyn Duke were supporting Baszler and Bayley, Charlotte Flair, and Becky Lynch were on the opposite end).

Baszler used a choke to win a physical match. She was stepping towards Bayley, Charlotte, and Lynch before leaving.

Kai advanced after hitting a double foot stomp off the top rope.

A swinging neckbreaker off the middle rope finished this one for LeRae.

Quarterfinals —

They had a back-and-forth match, with Martinez hitting a fisherman buster to move on.

– Toni Storm defeated Piper Niven

Storm won this one with a top rope legdrop.

– Kairi Sane defeated Dakota Kai

They had a very good match. Sane again used her flying elbow drop to advance.

Six-woman tag match —

Gabert was the most over wrestler on night two, with the crowd chanting “Please sign Jazzy.” She won with a forward slam after some amazing power moves.

– Triple H came out to thank us for being here and supporting women’s wrestling. He then brought out Sara Amato and thanked her for creating the women’s revolution in WWE. He asked us if we were ready before the semifinals started. This was a great segment for the live crowd.

Semifinals —

– Shayna Baszler defeated Mercedes Martinez

Baszler ended this one with another choke. Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, and Amato joined her in the ring to present her with a bouquet of flowers for advancing to the finals.

– Kairi Sane defeated Toni Storm

This was a hard-hitting match. Sane landed hard on a dive, then Storm took advantage and worked her over. Sane finally hit the flying elbow drop for the win. 

After the match, Triple H, Stephanie, and Amato returned to congratulate her. Baszler made her way out to the ramp for the staredown as our finals were set.
