For the second Friday in a row, there was women’s wrestling on 205 Live. It was more Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic quarterfinal (aka first round) action, and it featured the debut of a newly signed NXT Superstar!
There was also never any doubt about the outcome, but what are you gonna do?
Actually, Marina Shafir & Zoey Stark (fka Lacey Ryan) looked good enough to almost convince me they could pull of an upset in the ~10 minute main event on the Jan. 29 episode. In the end though, Ember Moon made Stark tap to her modified STF finisher, and she and Shotzi Blackheart advance.
The final four of the first ever Women’s Dusty Classic looks like this:
And I gotta say, I could see either semi-final... and the remainder of the tournament... go either way. Especially when you consider that if there’s anything to the rumors about Kayden Carter & Kacy Catanzaro turning heel, Shotzi & Ember are the only babyfaces left.
We’ll see. Carter & Catanzaro face Dakota Kai & Raquel González next Wednesday (Feb. 3) on NXT.
