WWE NXT TakeOver: Portland results - Rhea Ripley keeps her title

First things first... Bianca’s Belair’s attire has been amazing this month, and her gear for TakeOver: Portland tonight (Feb. 16) may have been her best yet.

With that out of the way, the issue hanging over The EST’s match against NXT Women’s champion Rhea Ripley was Ripley’s WrestleMania challenge to Charlotte Flair. It seemed to make the match at Moda Center a foregone conclusion - especially with rumors and conventional wisdom saying Flair would make an appearance at TakeOver.

It didn’t stop the two rising stars from giving it everything they had...

But in the end, a battle on the turnbuckles ended with Riptide, and the expected result. It was just the set-up for what everyone expected, though... read about that here.
