Shawna Reed comes into this match with 6 years in the business and 144 matches in her career. 5 in AEW.
Shawna plays a decent heel for having no exposition to the audience. I remember watching her in a special from the Nightmare Factory but she had more like an “Evil Brittney Spears” gimmick. In this match she’s got like leather and fishnet stockings. Maybe trying out a new look. She gets some offence in but everything is quickly countered by Anna Jay.
Anna Jay really delivering the strikes in this match. Her spinning heel kick in the corner looked excellent. It’s easy to forget that Anna Jay is still technically what I’d call a “prospect”. This was her 61st career match. Anna wins the match by setting up her move where she spins her opponent into falling into her Queen Slayer on the mat. That finish is coming along.
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.
