After spending time on the sidelines due to a hand injury, Bayley squared off with Emma in the culmination of a program that began prior to the last Takeover special.
The NXT faithful erupted for the popular Diva’s return.
Emma stalled early, then attacked Bayley from behind to take control early.
Bayley fought back and smashed her opponent’s face in the turnbuckle, then delivered a running bulldog for two. Emma took advantage of Bayley’s injury, though, wrapping it around the ring post and working it over in an attempt to score the victory.
Bayley ought out of the straight jacket submission and delivered a spear into the corner, followed by a back elbow. A double clothesline spot put both Divas down.
Dana Brooke was caught interfering in the match and was ejected from ringside.
The Bayley-to-Belly suplex finished Emma off moments later.
Bayley said after the match that she is back to be the NXT Women’s champion and that she cannot do that without beating the best. Next, she wants a match with Charlotte.
