Tonight’s episode of NXT came to an end with a big tag team match, where the newly returned Ember Moon teamed up with Rhea Ripley to take on Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez. Despite getting the upper hand on the duo during an ambush earlier in the night, Gonzalez and Kai were unable to come away with a win, as Moon and Ripley proved to be a solid enough team in a big win.
The match itself was preceded by Kai and Gonzalez attacking Riley earlier in the night, when the NXT superstar interrupted Io Shirai and Ember Moon. After helping out Ripley, William Regal concluded that a match was in order, with Ripley and Moon having to team up. In the match itself, they proved to be a decent enough team, with Ripley even helping Moon deliver a big DDT late in the match. After Ripley and Gonzalez both fell over the announce table out of the ring with Kai watching on, Moon was able to land the Eclypse on her for the victory.
