The fight was started by Liv and Natalya. The first female to exit the chamber was Raquel, then came Nikki, Carmella, and Asuka.
Raquel put Nikki through the pod before Asuka arrived and then eliminated her. She came in and assisted in Liv’s elimination by putting her in a double armlock-sharpshooter submission, which caused Liv to pass out. Natalya was defeated by Carmella using a superkick. After a series of blows and kicks from both women, Asuka and Carmella both pinned Raquel.
