Keyra vs Vanilla vs Taya Valkyrie

I truly don’t know what’s going on in this tournament. It’s now been split into men and women randomly. So this is apparently the women’s finals even though Taya won one match. Whatever it’s AAA.

Here and There


MLW is taping on Saturday going forward because they want to accommodate CMLL and their talent since they don’t usually work Saturday’s. MLW is going to be live Friday featuring Rush and Dragon Lee. Very exciting. They’re also doing TV tapings on Thursday and Friday and I’m trying to avoid spoilers like a bad journalist because I love the show.

Rush is going to be a big player in MLW I believe and I really think he can be a star. Court is playing towards the hispanic audience which is good. A lot of people speak Spanish in America and I believe not knowing English means nothing as far as getting over. I saw Jeff Hardy become a huge star and he could barely string sentences together. It’s a WWE brain wash thing in the last 20 years to think you need to cut great long promos and know the language great to get over. I guarantee Rush will become a top star and I hope Sombra joins him soon. The way WWE treats luchadors, non English speakers, and those with accents, like they’re lesser humans is disgusting. I won’t go off on a huge rant but Nakamura is one of the most talented men in wrestling period and he is never on television according to the reviews I read on this site and twitter. Sad.
