An Economical Squash
In an otherwise pretty inconsiquential squash match on Dark, Anna Jay A.S. *MAJORLY* shows out from a character standpoint. From the instant she appears walking out the entrance tunnel to the show smashcutting to the next match graphic, she doesn’t waste a second! She offers so much variety in terms of taunts and crowd interactions and her character work is perfect in every situation.
I like to joke that it’s easy to be a good emoter when you’re beautiful (not that I’d know) but Anna just has every expression down whether she’s gleeful, apoplectic, or unhinged. She looks as though she’s taken this Jericho Appreciation stuff to heart because she is VERY Chris Jericho-like.
As for the match itself, I thought she had a couple really nice elbow strikes, one in the corner and another on the run. And I absolutely loved how for the finish she just grabbed poor Sio Nieves by the hair and marched her into the ring for the Queen Slayer. Taz puts over perfectly how Anna just displayed that she could’ve ended this match at any time. Perfect squash match all-around.
Note: Just because I give a match a low rating doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it for what it was nor is it necessarily a commentary on the competitors. Not all matches are meant to be 3-to-5 star matches.
