Santana won the match following a super kick and a Shining Star Press. She tweeted about her big victory late last night:

Hayden had held the title for 378 days. Santana follows in the footsteps of many of women’s wrestling’s finest, from The Fabulous Moolah to Mildred Burke and Leilani Kai, who have held the title since its inception in 1935.
In retaining the title, LeRae made heavy use of her tag partner Joey Ryan and overcame Tommy Dreamer‘s attempts to even the odds, hitting Veda with a neckbreaker to get the pin.
Ryan would pay for his interference with a Singapore cane shot to the back delivered by Veda.
