Rebel comes out carrying the sandbag referencing Thunder Rosa & ThunderStorm. JR makes us aware of the fact that Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter have never won a match as a tag team. That’s actually a crazy stat!
I was delighted to learn that “already in the ring…” was Skye Blue & Ashley D’Amboise! Two prospects I’m very excited about. It was a short match but very sweet. It packed in a load of action per minute. Keep in mind that Skye Blue is just 22 although she has 5 years in pro wrestling (so she’s been wrestling since the age of 17!) and Ashley D’Amboise has just 59 career matches (according to Cage Match)!
So the early part of the match saw Skye Blue struggling to get a tag while Britt Baker and Jamie Hayter had the run of things. Skye really sells her ass off for Britt. There’s a great moment where Skye Blue dodges a clothesline with a Matrix but then Baker just kicks her arm out. Blue would also get an apron assisted DDT the floor. I actually started to worry this match mind end without Ashley D’Amboise getting tagged in but thankfully she did!
D’Ambiose really shows off her vertical and balance with leaping over the ropes back and forth, she looks very comfortable. Hayter would dodge her rolling neckbreaker leading to Hayter and Britt really beating up on D’Amboise with Skye Blue still convalescing. Hayter could’ve had it won but like a good teammate she tags in Baker. Hayter nails D’Amboise with a diving forearm to the back of the head and Baker seals the deal with the Lock Jaw.
Even though this was a squash match, I was really able to enjoy watching all four women work this match. Jamie Hayter’s another great young star to keep an eye on. Actually, as a cheap plug for myself, I’ve written a creative pitch for a Stable that features Britt Baker, Jamie Hayter and Ashley D’Amboise!

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.
