SRS' Mae Young Classic Match Ratings, Analysis, Podcast Notes

Pre-match

  • We're shown Horsewomen walking backstage. I remember seeing Jessamyn Duke on an AAMMA show in 2011 thinking she would look awesome in a wrestling ring. Crazy how things work.
  • Putting makeup on Shayna Baszler is weird. 
  • Kairi Sane has star aura, which is weird considering that type of gimmick is kind of odd over here.
  • I love that they have Lilian Garcia here for this. 
Booker T: 'I’ve Always Been All About The Script. Give Me The Script, I’m Going To Make It Good'

Mae Young Classic Finals
Kairi Sane defeated Shayna Baszler 
6/10

  • Shayna trotting the ring like an MMA ring is a nice touch.
  • Sane transitioning into pins from Baszler's submissions was a good way to start the match and showed that Sane is a threat at any time and vice versa.
  • What a Jesus Christing head kick from Baszler. 
  • Baszler not giving Kairi Sane anything. She's making her take it.
  • Kairi starts working the ribs and looks like she's giving receipts. She's going full force. 
  • Sane misses her elbow and gets caught in a RNC!
  • Double wristlock. A tear in my eye.
  • Insane elbow! That was a good watch. Besides Lita saying "Kitey Zayn" 

Post-match

  • Having Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, Sara Amato and a flower presentation is a good touch.
  • I really love them having Amato there.
