Match 1: Carmella vs. Peyton Royce

The two start the match with a hand slap as a sign of respect.  They lock up and Carmella grabs a side headlock takeover that Peyton quickly turns into a head scissors.  Carmella frees herself and the ladies perform the exact the same series of moves again with Carmella applying the head scissors at the end of the sequence.  Carmella tries for a rollup pin but Peyton is able to escape.
