The Divas opened TakeOver with a match that was often lightning quick, Emma proving herself capable of keeping up with Asuka’s rapid style. However, she clearly didn’t rest all of her hopes on defeating Asuka cleanly, as her ally Dana Brooke made her presence felt often.
Dana distracted Asuka whenever she could and eventually handed Emma a foreign object that, ironically, almost got Asuka DQed from the match. She even saved Emma from a tap out loss, distracting the referee as she tapped to the Asuka Lock.
Nevertheless, Asuka managed to win the match, using Dana’s distraction to her advantage when she caught Emma with a spinning heel kick to the head. Emma was laid out, Asuka covering her for the pin and the win.
