WWE NXT TakeOver: In Your House results - Io Shirai pins Rhea Ripley to end Charlotte Flair’s reign

For only the second time in NXT history, the Women’s title main-evented a TakeOver at June 7’s In Your House.

As she entered for her Triple Threat with Rhea Ripley and Io Shirai, Women’s champion Charlotte Flair faced the prospect of losing her title without being pinned or submitted. That’s why it was somewhat surprising when The Queen bailed at the bell, allowing the challengers to start the fight. It was a trap, of course, and she quickly attacked Ripley from behind. After swinging her WrestleMania opponent into the barricade...

...Flair went for Shirai, but after heaping on punishment, she was unable to get the Japanese Superstar to tap out to a Boston crab.

The Nightmare recovered and re-entered the fray, and the pace was fast & furious with all three wrestlers a part of the action for the second act. The next stretch began with the Genius of the Sky trapped in a Figure Four. The Aussie pulled Charlotte to the floor by her hair, and Shirai flattened them with a tope.

Flair through Io through the window portion of the set, but while her opponents brawled, she climbed to the roof of the porch.

A soaring crossbody flattened them both!

Ripley seemed to have both Charlotte (after a super Riptide) and Shirai (in a Prism Trap), but both where broken up - the latter with a Flair kendo stick attack. But when The Queen again tried to end Rhea with the Figure Eight, Io climbed. And with a mighty moonsault that appeared to connect knee-to-skull on Ripley, she scored the pin!

A very Japan-like streamer celebration followed, and we have a new NXT Women’s champ.
