Good match. As expected, it was mostly Alexa versus Becky. Sami rarely got a tag, and when he did, he mostly tried to run away. I liked the banter going on in the match. Sami barely shut up the entire time, and the rest of the competitors talked a lot as well. besides Becky and Alexa going back and forth with each other, the banter might have been my favorite part of the match.
