A new alliance seems to be taking shape in the NXT Women’s division. Vanessa Borne made her presence felt during the fiercely contested match between Aliyah and Taynara Conti. Although The Vision kept a low profile at first, she inserted herself into the action late in the match, distracting Conti behind the referee’s back and giving the ever-bougie Aliyah the chance to take over on the Brazilian Superstar. After the intrusion, Aliyah trapped Conti in a hold and simultaneously pulverized her with ferocious heel kicks, forcing Conti to tap out.
Borne raised Aliyah’s hand in triumph, but they soon received a reality check courtesy of NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler, Jessamyn Duke & Marina Shafir, who stormed the ring with bad intentions. After the dastardly triumvirate destroyed Borne, Aliyah and the still-recovering Conti, The Queen of Spades, who was evidently still fuming over her crew’s loss to Io Shirai, Bianca Belair & Kairi Sane last week, added an exclamation point, stating in no uncertain terms that the she and the Four Horsewomen’s ground soldiers aren’t to be trifled with.
