The commentators take a moment to look back at the controversy created by Eva Marie’s last match. We get an old school promo clip where Eva Marie thanks the referee for not giving into the bias opinion of the crowd, for recognizing her shoulders were off the mat.
Eva Marie vs. Carmella
Carmella goes right after Eva Marie. She throws Eva Marie to the outside and taunts her with a moonwalk. Upon Eva Marie’s return to the ring, she goes for a quick pin, receiving a 1 count. Eva knees Carmella hard and suplexes her for a 2 count. Eva drags Carmella by the hair to the corner and drives her head into the turnbuckle a few times. She elbows her and then delivers a big boot, knocking Carmella down for a 2 count. As she grabs Carmella’s hair again, she yells “How you doin?!” Another suplex and another 2 count.
Eva Marie goes for another suplex, but Carmella stops it and rolls up for a 1 count. Eva slows things down with an arm stretch submission. The crowd is shouting for Carmella, and she manages to get to her feet and deliver a hurricanrana off the turnbuckle. Lou Thesz press…and another one. Staten Island shuffle, followed by a spear on Eva into the corner. Eva’s face meets Carmella’s boot on the top turnbuckle, and we have a… what should have been a 3 count but the referee refrains from calling the pinfall. He says Eva Marie had her foot on the rope. Carmella can’t believe it. She tries to grab Eva but Eva throws her to the ramp, and Carmella lands awkwardly. The referee begins to count and Carmella doesn’t get up before the 10 count.
Winner: Eva Marie via countout.
Post match we see a replay that confirms Eva’s foot was on the rope, as she celebrates another win in NXT.
