Mae Young Classic Quarterfinals Review, 10/17

LACEY LANE VS. MEIKO SATOMURA

The commentators talk about how much of an underdog Lane is, and how embarrassed Satomura would be if she lost. I agree. I see a ton of potential in Lane, but she’s not there yet. She should be no match for the veteran that put on the match of the tournament with Mercedes Martinez in the second round. I would be surprised, and frankly, unhappy if Lane wins this match. I have nothing against her, but I would just find it illogical, as well as WWE letting one of their developmental talent go over a Japanese legend for in a situation that would help neither woman at this point. However, it would hurt Satomura.

Mae Young Classic Round Two Review, 10/10

ZEUXIS VS. IO SHIRAI

Since I unfortunately saw a spoiler the other day I know it’s Io Shirai who wins this match, but that’s the only thing I know.

DAKOTA KAI & DEONNA PURRAZZO VS. ALIYAH & LACEY EVANS

Evans says she’s a lady but acts like a bitch. A mean, tough-as-nails bitch. Every time she gets hit, she just gets pissed and hits back twice as hard. When she tags out, she slowly climbs up over the top rope and back down onto the apron. It looked so uppity and bitchy, small things like that can have such a big effect on getting a character over. Things like that are why I selected her as one of my future champions.

Mae Young Classic Round One Review, 9/12

PRISCILLA KELLY VS. DEONNA PURRAZZO

Kelly reminds me a lot of Ruby Riott in her look at personality. I am a fan of Purrazzo and I’d like to see what she can do, but she’s already going to be in tag team action NXT next week, so if Kelly impresses me here, I’d like to see her move on. I don’t know why they show Samoa Joe in the crowd, or what the hell he has to do with this tournament. Kelly smacks Purrazzo’s hand away at the start, so it’s clear who the heel is here.
