Willow Nightingale became the first ever NJPW Strong Women’s Champion after defeating Mercedes Moné in the main event of Resurgence.
The event took place Sunday night and there were two preliminary matches before we got to the main event. First Moné defeated Stephanie Vaquer by pinning her with the MonéMaker. Nightingale advanced to the finals by beating Momo Kohgo, when she pinned her after hitting the Doctor Bomb.
Moné and Nightingale would then have a competitive match in the main event. Nightingale often showed she had the power in the match. The final moments had Nightingale get a near fall with a Doctor Bomb but followed it up with another one to get the victory.
As Nightingale celebrated her win, Moné appeared to be injured as she needed help to leave the ring.
Also at Resurgence, Toni Storm appeared to help out Juice Robinson defeat Fred Rosser.
