Paris Van Dale is 22 years old with 50 career matches, 2 in AEW. Emi at this point is pretty exclusive to Dark/Elevation now as a “Player Coach”.
Emi opens up the match with a hair drag. She does a submission that adds a comedy element where she sits on her opponent and pretends to drink tea. Paris hits an X-Factor and a Bulldog for two. Emi does a standing submission on Paris’ arm by holding onto her hand with her mouth. Of course she also hits her “We Will Rock You” Crossbody in the corner. Sakura ends the match with a double undercooked stalling back breaker. Really good looking move.
It’s a rep for Paris. Not a ton to say beyond that.
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.
