Charlotte Flair vs. Trish Stratus
Stratus got a nice reaction coming out. So did Flair.
They locked up aggressively with Flair backing Stratus into the ropes. Stratus kicked her off as she charged and nailed a Thesz Press. She used the ropes to springboard into a rana. Flair went for a figure four but Stratus kicked her off and sent her into the corner. The crowd chanted, “You still got it.”
Stratus advanced but was kicked in the gut. She went for a powerbomb but Stratus escaped and used a lucha style armdrag. Flair ended up outside the ring where Charlotte nailed a Thesz Press off the apron. Flair gained control and tossed Stratus into the barricade.
Flair brought Stratus back into the ring and smashed her face into the ring apron several times. She locked her in a modified surfboard, pulling on her hair for additional pressure. Charlotte tied up Stratus in the ropes, working her over. She continued trashing Stratus, mocking her verbally as she did it.
Stratus exploded with punches working over Charlotte, having had enough. Flair dumped her over the ropes, landing on the outside on her feet. Stratus was nailed with a big boot, crashing to the floor. Stratus recovered on the floor and was almost counted out but Flair dragged her back into the ring.
Stratus absorbed some punishment and finally fired back with a series of chops. She went for her handstand into the rana in the corner but was caught by Flair. Stratus pulled herself up and they battled on the top until Stratus caught her with a rana off the top rope into the ring.
Flair nailed a big boot for another pinfall. She began working on Stratus’ leg to set up the figure eight. Stratus rolled her up for a two count and locked in a figure four leglock of her own. Stratus then bridged up into the figure eight leglock on Flair, locking her in her own finishing maneuver. Flair made it to the ropes.
They faced off. Flair went for a spear but was caught and nailed with the springboard bulldog for a two count. They went back and forth until Stratus hit the Chick Kick for a close two count. Stratus went for another but was hit in the face with a big boot. Charlotte cinched in the figure eight in the center of the ring. Stratus finally tapped.
Your winner, Charlotte Flair!
