AEW positioned Taya Valkyrie as the biggest threat yet to Jade Cargill’s undefeated streak and TBS title. It made sense, seeing as Valkyrie is a well-established veteran who’s had lengthy runs with both AAA and Impact’s women’s titles.
But rather than just focus on that, their storyline has also focused on their finisher, a sitout facebuster that Cargill calls “Jaded” and Valkyrie calls “Road to Valhalla”. It led to Taya being forbidden to use the move in their match last night. But after being thrown around for much of the match, and being unable to secure a three count even when she hit moves like a double stomp, Valkyrie grabbed Jade for the outlawed move.
That it was reversed into a roll-up is besides the point. Taya was losing this one, one way or another.
Maybe that’s why she snapped after the bell, going after Cargill’s entourage first, then threatened to send referee Aubrey Edwards down the Road to Valhalla? Regardless, now she’s not champ AND she’s looking at a suspension. Meanwhile, Jade is 56-0 without any serious threats on the immediate horizon.
Let us know if you think Cargill’s TBS championship reign and undefeated streak will end any time soon.
