Detailed, immediate recap of the WSU event from the Ace Arena, as seen on www.gofightlive.tv, reported by Joe Babinsack.
WSU’s Fourth Anniversary Show opens with a tribute to Luna Vachon, the central figure in the Women Superstars Uncensored Hall of Fame 2011.
Awesome acceptance by Amy Lee, saying that Luna’s mother, and Sir Oliver Humperdink, could not attend the show to accept the award. Lee quotes several names, including Kevin Sullivan, and notably Sullivan comments that Luna was integral to launching his own career.
Video put together by WSU on the big screen, highlighting Luna’s career from the
Ivory, inducted by Jazz, and April Hunter, inducted by Nikki Roxx, also inducted into the 2011 WSU Hall of Fame class.
The ring clears, and a promo by Mercedes Martinez, setting up the match against Serena.
Shows Mercedes winning the WSU World Championship, then Serena with the SES T-Shirt, and the angle where Serena speared the WSU Champion and cut some of her hair.
Also hyped is Alicia and her ability to challenge any title holder, any time.
Mercedes states that she will bleed for this company.
WSU announcer/emcee Destiny in the ring, introducing Athena. She’s from Booker T’s school in Houston. Very athletic with a rather skimpy purple outfit – almost a bikini bottom with chaps.
Her opponent is Leva Bates, coming to the ring with an “Iron Man” mask…. As in the red/gold Tony Stark Marvel Comics Hero, with red/gold outfit. Interesting …. She unmasks herself at the opening.
Basic work early, with Athena showing off gymnastics. It goes to the ground. Announcers joke about Spinneroonies. Funny. Bates with an armbar.
Weird reversal, almost an abrupt Canadian Destroyer, but only a two, followed by a few near falls.
Bates with a backslide attempt, but flips over. Tries a crucifix, but Athena tosses her.
Athena with a modified Abdominal Stretch, then takes over. Spinning side slam to a big pop, but only a two count.
Irish whip. Handspring fore-arm by the purple-clad Athena.
Trading forearms now. Snap-mare by Athena, followed by a Davey Richards style kick to the back.
(Tina San Antonio out tonight. She was attacked at the doctors office? Wow, they have tape)
Comeback by Leva Bates, then an enzui-giri. But Athena stops the comeback. Full nelson applied by Athena, with Bates in the ropes.
Book-end to the knees by Athena.
Announcers not paying attention to the match all that much, hyping the WSU Tag match.
Ropes. Bates with what can only be describes as a tilt-a-whirl into a DDT. Athena selling as is Bates.
Chops by Bates. Knocks Athena down. Ropes. Big round kick, and again. Savate kick, then a Yakuza kick. Only a two count.
The kick assault continues.
Forearm. Athena’s down in the corner. Run, kick, double kick from the handstand in the corner.
But Athena up and ropes, reverse.
Lungblower by Bates.
Athena out of the ring, but kicks Bates, and dives from the top with a neckbreaker.
1-2-3 for the pin and the win.
Not bad for an opener. The “young Texan” gets the win. Leva Bates gets the assist to the back.
GoFIght live promo.
WSU Video Flashback with Nikki Roxx vs Alicia, Janna and Rain to win a number one contenders spot.
Destiny announces Niya, a blonde Latina sparkplug.
Niya flip into the ring into a split.
Her opponent is, not so ironically, Nikki Roxx. Roxx is a former WSU Champion, and the announcers tout her wins, including one over Mercedes Martinez. Roxx is a solid worker, looks great, but talent + TNA rarely means anything. Ok, I’ll stop.
Match starts slow. Announcers mention Roxx being in the second match, and recent losses.
Roxx with a headlock. Announcers tout the need for a win. Roxx “lights up Niya” with forearms. Roxx in control, but Niya throws an awkward suplex, yet Roxx back in control, but a flurry of lariats and a drop kick knocks Roxx out of the ring.
Niya on the chase.
Roxx in, Niya ducks the lariat and hits a rana. But she charges Roxx, and gets tossed to the turnbuckle.
Nikki Roxx choking Niya.
Scoop slam by Roxx, but only two. Roxx in control, with a chinlock. Niya gets the crowd to fire her up, but Roxx has none of that with a hair-snap.
Niya tossed to the corner, but knees up and comes out with a bulldog. Quick two.
Niya with punches. Double chops and the baby face comeback, leading to a leg lariat and a two count.
Reverse Irish whip by the Bostonian. But no control. Niya up to the top, but misses something… something. Roxx with her finisher in the middle of the ring – the Barbie Crusher.
Roxx out and Niya sells and rolls out slowly.
Match #3, after the announcer touts Roxx’s comeback.
Destiny, poised in a simple black dress, back in the ring.
Welcomes Jennifer Cruz. Cruz dressed in black and getting the heel reception. She’s another Latina, but getting “go away” heat. As in a “go away” chant. Cruz is a bit stocky, if I dare say.
To the ring is Jamilia Craft, the masked wrestler trained by Daizee Haze.
Cruz jumps her as she slides in the ring. Cruz still has her ring jacket on! Talk about old school!!!
Craft gets the better of it, and goes for the patented ten punches in the corner. No Spanish here, since it’s not exactly a luchadora. Cruz finally tosses her jacket, and takes control, getting a knee-drop and a weak two count.
Big suplex by Cruz.
Another two count.
Chinlock by Cruz. Craft trying to rally the crowd, but a bit too fast. Ropes, but a clothesline by Cruz. Cruz playing heel. Scoop slam. Cruz points to the corner, and climbs back to the second rope. King Kong chest pound, but she misses the leg drop.
Craft up first. Clothesline. Back elbow. Sidewalk slam. 2 ¼ count.
Scoop but not up. Elbow by Cruz – to Craft’s face. Two count.
Cruz circles, tries for what looks to be a Gringo Killa, but Craft tosses her to the corner, Cruz bounces out, and gets hit by the Belly to Belly by Craft for the 1-2-3.
Interesting match. A little too quick to the finish, but both showed some good interaction with the fans.
Promo by Serena, who’s growing back her hair. She’s here for a purpose, to show that she’s the best in the world. Nice promo. “One of the biggest matches of my career.”
Back to the ring.
Back to a Flashback of Luna Vachon. Volume way up….Alicia beats Luna.
Jazz vs. Alicia graphic
Destiny welcomes Alicia, who’s a blonde who looks more like Snookie than a typical women wrestler. Announcers declare she has a new outfit, which is purple.
Destiny welcomes the former WWE Diva/ECW Champion “fighting phenom” Jazz.
Jazz was 2010 Hall of Fame inductee.
Jazz is all business. Weird dynamic, with dueling chants and two rather babyfaces with a personal issue.
Forearm by Jazz from a lockup.
Jazz picks up Alicia and tosses her. No mean feat there. Lockup. Armdrags by Alicia. Sole food by Alicia. A couple of butt attacks (running romper?) by Alicia. Jazz is down.
Alicia moves in but gets thrown to the middle of the ropes. Now she’s choking Alicia. On the ropes.
Jazz with a big elbow and a kick on Alicia, who’s draped on the apron. Jazz drags her back, and does a jumping leg drop.
Jazz locks Alicia up, not in a rear naked choke, both on their knees, but Alicia up. Jazz throws Alicia down.
Jazz pulls her to the center for a two count.
Jazz confronts the ref. Stomps on Alicia. Chin lock.
Finish came a bit out of nowhere… nice followup, though, with Jazz talking about her disappointment about coming her to get a championship, then puts over the fans.
Alicia follows up thanking as well, talks up her contract, saying that she’ll cash in later tonight.
Promo with the Cosmo Club…. Britney Savage, Amy Lee, Cindy Rogers, Rick Cataldo, laughing up the fact that Tina San Antonio isn’t going to be there, and who will Marie Belle choose?
Amy Lee touts fans bring weapons, and who could Belle choose.
Savage says that they better get the job done tonight. Tells them to step up.
Amy Lee “I don’t do three-ways” complaining about the last event.
Dissension in the ranks. Savage bossing around Cataldo now. Savage bossing everyone around.
Back to the show, Allisyn Kay intro’d by Destiny.
Fishnets and a green outfit for Kay. Her opponent, Kristin Astara.
Astara is 1-0, Kay is 0-1.
Astara is a striking blond with a silver outfit and a look that will get her noticed. Kay looks a lot tougher.
Brief lockup, Kay pushes Astara back. Kay pushes her back to the corner on the second lockup. Go-behind by Allysin Kay. Astara gets a quick one. Shoulder tackle by Astara, then a cartwheel, then a series of hip-tosses and a hair toss. Ropes, and a true lariat by Kay. Running senton for a two count, and Astara is selling. Neck crank by Kay.
Barely a two. Kay follows with an elbow.
Kay picks Astara up on her shoulders. Samoan drop.
Two count. Astara reaching for the ropes.
Arm bar by Allisyn Kay and Astara is selling and writhing.
Kristin Astara up but belly to back by Kay for a two.
Foot to the face in the corner, as Kay dominates.
Another two, just pushing the shoulders down, but Kay misses a standing elbow, then misses a standing leg drop. Crowd rallies Astara. Kay puts her on the shoulders, but Astara escapes and chops the knee. Really weird psychology here.
Both up at seven.
Trading punches, but Astara is on fire. Forearm, double chops, then a chick-kick. Kay is down. Two and a half count on Kay.
Backslide goes nowhere.
Kay bashes Astara’s head to the canvas.
A series of not so smooth moves, but Astara leaps back over Kay, and drops her with a Rock-bottom variant.
Kay sells a moment, and sells being upset for the loss.
Good match. Kristin Astara getting a push.
Boston Shore announced, and these gals are drawing heat. Of course, I’m not into the Boston/NY rivalry, but it seems obvious and cheap heat.
April Hunter announced, and the announcers are touting the big challenge for the Boston Shore.
April Hunter, in the 2011 WSU HoF, shows a look that puts Beth Phoenix to shame.
Mystery Partner announcement, as Tracy Brooks not here, and was supposed to be her partner from the last event. It’s the only person April Hunter can trust.
(Who, by the way, is listed from Boston, and Hunter puts over that she was trained by Killer Kowalski. This is a reunion of the Killer Babes from Japan, we’re told.)
It’s Nikki’s second match… I’m thinking angle.
Rocks Paper Scissors, and Roxx telegraphs it. No Rock from her.
April starts out against the thinner Boston Shore chick. It’s a pose-down. This would never happen on Cable with these two ladies, but it would be just as bad. April does impressive one-handed push-ups, but get’s attacked in old-school fashion.
Roxx gets tagged in quick. Double axe-handled on the skinny Boston Shore girl, so my angle sense is destroyed… working and trading off on the arm. Skinny girl tries a kip up, and goes nowhere. Amber comes in slowly.
Nikki tags out.
Amber tags out.
Skinny girl tags out.
Amber points to Nikki, and Nikki tags in.
This isn’t confusing, it’s kinda pointless.
Trash talking and pointing. Slow lockup, finger-lock test of strength, and Amber stars strong, but Nikki turns the tables. Drop-toe hold after some stall tactics. Headlock by Nikki.
Amber gets the ropes and Skinny girl kicks Nikki in the back. Double teaming in the heel corner. Lexis is the Skinny Girl. Amber in control. I’m seeing why April said that Nikki is the “A” to her “T”.
Nikki selling in the Bobby Eaton role. Lexis has control with the tag. Lexis with a chinlock, but Nikki uses the Pat Patterson escape, yet gets tackled from behind by Lexis out of the corner. That was a bad reference.
Amber tags in and beats on Nikki.
Another tag. Old School tag team wrestling gets two thumbs up.
Nikki gets control and splashes Lexis. Chinbreaker, but Nikki isn’t going for the tag, and Lexis drags her back and tags Amber.
Punch to the sternum, then the face, then a shove.
Nikki with a babyface comeback and dive, stop, gets the tag.
April Hunter is on fire with clotheslines. Scoop slam on Amber.
Another slam, spun around first.
Nikki tosses Lexis out of the ring.
Drop toe from the ropes on Amber. Nikki with a “Japanese Strangle Hold” followed by a bulldog from April. Two count.
Hunter with a strange kick, then puts Amber in an armbar, which is broken by Lexis.
Amber rolls up April Hunter, who chased Lexis. Schoolgirl with the tights and the Boston Shore gets the big heel win/upset.
Loved the match in an Old School way, and any tag match that doesn’t end in a breakup is a good one.
(I held my breath on that one.)
Destiny back in the ring. It’s 8:38
Barbie from Brooklyn County NY is announced.
Barbie doesn’t have blonde hair, and is making her long awaited return. She also has a sleeve on her right arm – as in a tattoo.
Kelly Skater makes her debut, from Australia.
Can someone tell me what “Rate Tank” means?
Kelly has blonde kinky hair and is quite pale, but quite cute, and doesn’t have to do much to play babyface, but she works it.
Barbie gets the arm and works it until a punch in the face and reversal.
Barbie can’t punch back, the hold is too strong. But a reversal, and they work the bridge. Barbie pulls the hair. Waist, but no cinch. Barbie gets control and throws Kelly down. Snap mare (hair mare says the announcer). Barbie stomps Kelly.
Foot on the neck by Barbie.
Kelly comeback with punches, a quick schoolgirl, but it hits the ropes. Big clothesline by Barbie. Two count. Barbie screams.
Mount by Barbie, with punches.
Forearms by Kelly, and now they trade. Yeah/boo. Kelly in control. Lariat by Kelly, elbow. Kelly trying a Northern Lights Suplex, but no success. Drop kick by Kelly.
Protein shake drank by Kelly?
Northern Lights for a two count.
Spin kick by Kelly blocked, Big kick by Barbie for a two count.
DDT attempt blocked by Kelly. Kelly in control, blockbuster type move, kick to the head, and the 1-2-3 for a debut win.
Barbie ducks out, selling, and Kelly heads to the back. Not sure about that protein shake drinking, but a solid match.
Graphic: Jessicka Havok Vs. Rain
Destiny introduces Havok first. Mix of boos and cheers. Announcers play up that she turned on Rain’s Army and ran Amber O’Neal out of WSU. Boo!
Rain announced second. Generic graphics for all the women, but mostly recognizable music.
Rain shaking her stuff, wearing Amber O’Neal type fishnets.
Havok jumps her quick. Havok in black, looking like an industrialist, not a goth or punk.
Havok seems in control, but Rain takes over and kicks her in the face. Two count. Cravat & kicks to the face. Running cravat buster? Two count. Announcers joke about Ace Crusher. The old bell-ringer by Rain X7. Weird dynamics, I thought Rain was the heel.
Rain in control, but eye-rake by Havok, and she stomps and steps on Rain’s neck.
Two count. Havok looks like a brunette version of Natalie Hart, but fights with a much stronger style.
Body scissors by Havok. Rain getting choked, gets her neck snapped on the bottom rope. Two count, and Jessicka Havok is screaming.
Ground and pound. Not quite a two count.
Trading chops now. Very stiff.
Big chop by Rain. Jessicka takes her down. Sidewalk slam by Havok. Still only a two count.
Weak punk by Havok. Steps on her hair and pulls up her arms. Ouch.
Kicks to the head. Havok in control, ties Rain up in the bottom rope. Ties her up on the middle rope and kicks her in the back, pushing her, choking her. Powerful pickup and backbreaker on the knee by Havok. Drops her for a two count.
Shoulder blocks by Havok. Slaps Rain. Pillar to post to post. Havok in control, but Rain fires back. Slaps to the upper chest. Havok drops down, and Rain kicks, but Havok up and kicks Rain down for another 2 and another scream.
Camel Clutch by Havok.
Danielson inspired forearms, now she’s slamming her face into the mat. Two count. Rain back with knees to the had from the bottom. Big running kick by Rain for a two count.
Guillotine by Rain, but Havok fighting out of it. Short clothesline by Havok. Two count.
Both are slowing down, but Havok with forearms, then misses a spear into the corner.
Drop-kicks by Rain, three times. Double knee to the face, but just over a two count. Polite applause.
Ropes, elbow to the face by Rain.
Rain snapped Havok’s neck on the middle rope, and Havok hits the floor, Rain out to get her. Beating her down around the ring, tosses her back in. Announcers talk up how Rain enjoys it too much.
Rain back in, right into a rollup. Two count. Havok stomps ala Garvin.
Suplex couldn’t get up, but then almost a brainbuster, not sure if by design.
Havok in control, puts Rain on her shoulders. Rain escapes, tries a DDT, but a spinning forearm by Havok for yet another two count.
Havok kicking down Rain. Puts her on her shoulders, but Rain reverses, tries a DDT, but Havok hooks the ropes. Stomps away at the prone Rain. Shoulders again. Rams Rain into the turnbuckle, then drops her down on her head for the 1-2-3.
Looked like an Emerald Frosien.
Havok vamps for the camera, and Rain sells big.
Announcers play up the big win. Twenty minutes of strong action from these two. You won’t see half this battle on regular Cable TV.
Applause from the fans for Rain.
Destiny back in the ring
Flashback… Luna vs the Diva Killaz.
Luna was crazy good. “You just got your asses beat by a grandma.”
WSU Tag Team Titles are vacant, and up for grabs.
Amy Lee and Cindy Rogers – Team TCB.
Amy Lee wears a Harley-Davidson jacket and a weird mask.
Who attacked Tina? Who’s the mystery partner?
Lee and Rogers with the Fargo Strut!
“That’s a lot of stuff to be strutting!” Announcer Bison.
The ‘reunited’ Soul Sistas are to the ring now, playing it up babyface style.
Marie Belle to the ring with both belts and no partner. Speculation continues on who attacked Tina San Antonio. The first two teams are in the ring. Belle cuts a babyface promo, speculating that someone in the ring may have attacked her.
Belle says she’s sick of the bullying in and will take them on herself, or with someone. Angle is almost obvious to me, but I’m looking forward to the reveal.
But they’re going to the reveal now.
She’s wearing a cool hooded robe. Jazz is still looking for gold.
Cindy Rogers sells heel-like. Jazz: “It’s all about the gold, and I’m here to get mine.”
Belle hands the belt, but Jazz says, “Don’t just hand me that belt, let me earn mine.”
Before the match starts, Amy Lee grabs the mike and reminds us all that 1) this is a weapons match and 2) that she can say that other “F” word whenever and wherever she wants.
Lee gathering plunder across the ringside, including a stick and a cookie tray. Sometimes “brutal” is the best word to use.
Amy Lee destroying people outside, and Jazz standing in the center of the ring with a hockey stick.
But Cindy Rogers in to do battle. Jazz returns the fight. Rogers throws Jazz out, but she goes slowly. Rogers dives out. It’s ECW style tornado rules, with Jazz – who knows the style, and Amy Lee, who can be gooder than good when she’s destroying people. Especially with a brick.
Just when I was thinking the feed was awesome, it got fuzzy for a minute. Pretty good quality for Gofightlive.tv, but I agree to the sentiment that staring at a computer screen isn’t optimal for watching wrestling. Of course typing away at the same time complicates things.
Jana in the ring, baseball slide kick misses. That’s a dangerous move to do.
It’s like ECW circa 1996 and the Gangstas vs Public Enemy. Read into that what you will. I’d do a whole column on it, but it would be long-winded.
I was just about to joke about people looking like people, but that’s a dangerous game when WSU is honoring the late Luna Vachon, and I’m not one to joke about seeing dead people.
The one announcer used the word “chaos” and I’m digging it.
Hockey stick to the cookie tray on top of Jana, by Martie Belle. (Did I call her Marie earlier?)
This is a trainwreck, but if it’s the only match of this type on the show, then it’s well booked. By the way, when’s the last ECW style match like this on wrestling, not including that 30 minute monstrosity that put over Yellow Finger?
Funny. Jana beating on Amy Lee’s ankle. Announcers talk up strategy – attacking the leg, but Amy Lee is no-selling.
Big splash on the other Soul Sista.
There’s nothing more frightening than Amy Lee showing bull horns and doing a running drop kick on someone.
Soul Sistas attack Lee, and Martie Belle recovers from me hyping Amy Lee’s move. What’s going on here?
Now there’s bread being shoved down Amy Lee’s throat. I jinxed this by referencing TNA once too often.
Jazz in the ring with Cindy Rogers – the two awesome workers in the match.
Jazz coming back against Rogers.
There’s a weird sandwich going on outside the ring.
Rogers trying a reverse DDT, but Jazz isn’t down for that.
Jazz for the slam, got it the second time, moved into a sit-out powerslam. Well, that’s what it did look like.
Now, what happens to Tina San Antonio?
Interesting angle, if I were to project …. Lots of avenues on this one, from the Cosmo Club breaking up, to who attacked Tina, to what happens when she comes back and finds out that Jazz is holding her belt.
Soul Sistas play vanquished babyfaces, and congratulate the champs – the new champs – on their win.
Team TCB ducks out.
It’s 9:30. WSU Tag Team Champs posing in the ring.
GFL logo on the screen. That’s www.gofightlive.tv
Thanks to Sean at WSU and David Klarman at GFL for the live stream….
Very enjoyable so far, and the main event is still to come.
Fans having fun while the bread (seriously) is being swept up in the ring.
Destiny making her way to the ring, but it’s another Flashback, with Alicia vs Britney in a match that got out into the parking lot.
Destiny in the ring.
Sassy Stephanie promo, but it gets cut off. Time issues?
Sassy Stephanie introduced. Decked out in black and green. She’s a good looking girl, very athletic and talented, but that name isn’t the best.
Britney Savage in with Rick Cataldo. She’s the “Spirit Champion” and Rick has a buzzcut.
This is a heel tandem of epic proportions. Savage is a hot, but petite, blonde who has showed tons of potential since her heel turn. Rick of course is a stereotypical stereotype of the business, but mostly in good fun.
Destiny announces that if the Cosmo Club or Rick interfere, Savage relinquishes the belt. Cataldo is sent to the back.
Arm drags by Sassy. Senton and back senton. Sassy Stephanie in control. She ties up Savage and slams her head into the canvas, but only gets a two count.
Irish whip and running knee to the corner. Reverse, but Sassy stops the kick, yet gets pulled out. Reverse headlock by Savage. Clothesline, one count, by Savage.
Savage with chops.
Sassy back with chops.
Ropes, kick by Sassy. Savage blocks the second from the ropes, and kicks down Steph. Drop kick off the ropes, and almost a two-count.
Choke on the ropes, then a drop kick by Savage. Two count.
Tree stump puller by Savage. One count.
Side Russian Leg Sweep by Sassy, then a crade, two count. Closthesline by Savage. The old step on the on Steph’s long red hair by Savage. Again.
Boston crab by Savage. That’s not a pretty looking grimace. Escape, but a two count by Savage. She’s in control, but the announce crew talking up the missing Cataldo.
Sassy blocks a kick and throws Savage. Series of hair-drags. Top rope by Sassy. The old pull the ref into the dive move.
Stunner by Savage.
Cataldo out with a chair, but Ivory makes the save. Rick looks for a handshake but gets the X-factor instead.
Sassy Stephanie with a neck-breaker and Ivory wakes the ref.
Looks like a new Spirit Champion.
Interesting… Ivory and Sassy are the same size, and Sassy isn’t much larger than Britney Savage…. It’s all about perspective.
Ivory puts over the new WSU (Spirit) Champion.
“Thank You Ivory” chant and Sassy Steph thanks her as well.
Rick in to help Savage.
Flashback – the 70 minute Ironwoman match.
It’s interrupted by Savage cutting a promo on the Cosmo Club, and fires Rick Cataldo, calling him a “fat bitch”. Complains that he cost her the title, and she hits the stunner, and declares that the “Cosmo Club is done!”
Speculation on a new group?
Back to the Flashback. Whether planned or not, the interruption adds to the show.
Mercedes beats Angel Orsini in seventy minutes.
Backstage, Serena is preparing for the match.
Elsewhere, Mercedes is preparing for the match.
The Title Match is next. I love the UFC vibe of the graphics…
Serena out first, announced by Destiny.
9:54 on the clock. Wow, three hours plus for the show.
Serena reminds me of Sarah McLachlan, but you WWE fans know her from CM Punk’s Straight Edge Society.
Mercedes is the best Champion on the planet today, bar none. She’s out with scissors, which I don’t like…. But it’s storyline. Just crazy dangerous to have a stabbing implement when you’re going to be jumping around in the ring.
Mercedes jumps Serena at the bell. Beats on her, chops her.
36 title defenses by Mercedes.
Clothesline, clothesline, yakuza kick. 1-2.
Stomp, and Mercedes is pounding on Serena’s back. Serena gets out of the ring, but Mercedes chases her, and tosses her back in. Two count.
Open hand slap, and Mercedes chokes Serena with a foot to the throat. Slaps to the chest – no, forearms. Now slaps. Serena sells big. Irish whip, but MM eats an elbow. Serena jumps on Mercedes’ back and pulls the hair. Garvin stomping.
Trash talking, then Serena kicks to Mercedes’ back. Leg drop by Serena.
Serena trash talking to the crowd. Now, the old step on the hair and pull the arms.

Serena kicks to the midsection in the corner.
Announcers started hyping the control, then talk up Mercedes. Serena puts Mercedes on the top turnbuckle, and starts to punch and climb. Mercedes on Serena’s shoulders…. MM back with Danielson elbows. Big bulldog from the top rope/turnbuckle. Both are down.
6-7-8-9 and Mercedes is up.
Grabs the hair.
Suplex. Suplex. The third is more of a falcon arrow.
Slap on Serena. Mercedes puts her on the top. Punches. Punches. Looks like a superplex, but Serena is fighting back. Drops Mercedes down. Serena drops to the apron.
Both are down, crowd clapping. Serena up and active, now Mercedes is. Kick by Serena. Boxing by Serena – jabs. Knee from the rope and a neckbreaker.
Cover – just two by Serena.

Cutting the hair, or at least trying to. The scissors fly. Mercedes comes back, stops a sunset flip for a two.
Fisherman buster for the 1-2-3!
At well over 20 minutes, Mercedes Martinez makes one more great successful Title Defense – her 37th. Mercedes gets the scissors, and Serena bails.
Alicia hits the ring with her contract.
Says she will cash in her contract tonight. Says Mercedes can take a minute to rest, and they will then fight. Mercedes attacks Alicia immediately. Announcers tout a 25 minute match by Mercedes.

A-bomb by Alicia, but Mercedes kicks out.
Another A-bomb by Alicia. The lights go out.
Jessicka Havok in the ring, and hits Alicia with the WSU belt. Jessicka grabs the mike, and says it’s Jessick Havok’s time to shine. She reminds all that Alicia ruined her time, and she gave her payback, and she’s coming after Mercedes Martinez.
I guess that’s the 38th Title defense.
Interesting conclusion … that could have gone bad, but now there’s a few directions to come out of it. Hopefully not an immediate three-way, but setting up challengers this show did.
