GFW Knockout’s Champion Sienna w/ KM and Taryn Terrell def. Gail Kim and Allie w/ Braxton Sutter
Gail is on fire right out of the gate as she takes it to both Sienna and Taryn! Sienna is able to gain control by dropping her on the top rope. Taryn hits Gail with a big spinning neckbreaker. Gail connects with a hurricanrana on Sienna, allowing her to tag in Allie! She hits Sienna with Sliced Bread for a near fall. Allie is perched on the top rope when KM tries to get involved! Sutter evens the odds and chases him to the back. Allie hits Sienna with a crossbody but the momentum allows Sienna to roll her up for the win.
