Asuka is outstanding, and even though English is quite obviously her second language, she makes it work. Her going undefeated for as long as she has is impressive. It would be nice if NXT had done a better job building up Moon to make it plausible to win this title.

There’s quite clearly going to be a rematch based off the construction of this match. Asuka finally went full heel after months of teasing being more aggressive and becoming desperate to continue her undefeated streak. Pretty aggressive feeling out process to begin. Moon looked super impressive and really stepped up to the plate in the most important match of her career. We get some teased Eclipse attempts, but Asuka always counters or kicks her way out. Moon refuses to tap out to the Asuka lock and eventually comes back with a superkick.  Gordbuster, but Asuka shoves the official into the turnbuckle. Kick to the head. That gets three. Asuka had to use a shortcut to get the victory. Do two more months of build and give Moon the title in Chicago. This was excellent with another well executed story.

Winner (s)/Rating: STILL NXT Women’s Champion-Asuka/***3/4
