Tessa has talent but the real question is if she will ever have the right mindset to take advantage of it.

 

Fyi, Abbey Laith is the former Kimber Lee and Jazzy Gabert is former World of Stardom champ Alpha Female.

Jazzy had a super quick stint in TNA where she was pushed like a monster then she completely disappeared.

Unless she's some sort of prodigy seems strange putting Taynara Conti in this. I think she's had like three matches total and one of those was a Battle Royal.

Well perhaps if they keep her away from the bar prior she'll be okay since she seemed half-smashed all the time on the PPV pre shows.

That seems like the worst possible pairing for commentary for this thing to me, honestly.

The latest batch of entrants.

 

Sane and Kai (formerly Evie) have to be two of the favourites to win this. Other than their in-ring, they both have great charisma and really likable personalities that could make them big stars. I think people on this board will like Niven because she works a lot like a Tenta/Backwell type monster. Belair is interesting. It looks like the WWE is very high on both her and Lacey Evans so it wouldn't surprise me if one of them gets pushed in this, maybe even making the semi-finals.

I seriously hope they don't push one of their green PC wrestlers to the final four. I would like to see Toni Storm get signed and get a push in this as it's pretty obvious she has what they'd be looking for in a future star. I like what I've seen from Viper, but that is mainly just matches against the best Stardom women. I have no idea if she can get a match out of some of these people who've never worked a 10 minute match in front of a live audience before.

They kind of have to though, it wouldn't make sense for them to have their homegrown talent all get run over. Maybe not final four level, but there's going to be a few indy women brought in just to make the PC crew look good.

So, after reading spoilers, it looks like they build the first night around Kairi Sane. She was that last woman to be introduce and was in the last match of the night. Serena Deeb looks like she's in the Brian Kendrick spot, although she might end up being better at it than Kendrick. Apparently, a couple of the PC girls, Xia Lee and Taynara Conti, impressed.

Sucks Lufisto isn't in it, really thought this would be her chance to finally get to be in a WWE ring. Also would've liked to have seen Havok in but she has baggage so it's more understandable.

Your Mae Young Classic Final:

Spoiler

 

Looking at the matchups, most of the second round should be good with pretty much every match in the quarters/semis might be really good, if not great.

 

Tom Phillips, Nigel McGinness, and Beth Phoenix did some of the announcing.

 

Also, it's awesome that Dave Prazak was backstage for this:

I'd be happier with Stacey's deranged Diva's Revenge angle than this.

To be fair, I never quite liked it then either. I'm consistent on this one. Speaking of that, it's not kayfabe so much as consistency across a card (or, hate to use the word, but "universe") that's an issue. Brock is at least physically massive in a way that's not replicated with females.

So professional wrestling shouldn't take in athletes with prior athletic experience? Or that they could but they should never mention it if it exists?

They should mention it in a measured way. Hell they do that on Ninja Warrior. "Here's a football player. He's big and strong and explosive, but football players don't always transfer well into Ninja warrior because..."

 

There's such an inferiority complex in wrestling that the idea of someone saying "Brock's been competing in MMA circles for the last few years but WWE is a different game with different rules and different needs (stamina in a non-round system, different things being legal, pressures of submissions different with rope breaks, I don't know)" would never, ever happen. 

 

Steph showing ass for the first time in a year to Ronda didn't do anyone a bit of good when the night was over.

At this point, is Ronda Rousey just Cyndi Lauper?

 

After TLC, I'm sure that when this airs more people will be upset that they ran an angle were a husband did a run in to save his wife from a post-match beat down than this.
