I haven’t seen Renee Michelle in some time. Her hair is RED! Emi starts the match off by biting Renee’s hand and then throwing her hard chest first into the top rope. Stomps in the corner, a big head butt and then Emi tosses Renee by that aforementioned red hair. Spot Of Tea spot from Sakura as Michelle is incredulous.
Both women exchange chops. Emi raises the game by raking Renee’s chest with her fingernails. Renee Michelle hits a back heel kick and flattens Emi, then goes to the top rope and delivers a missile dropkick for two. Renee picks Emi up and goes for a Cutter but Sakura turns it into her own neck breaker.
Some offence is the corner from Emi including chops and a Cross Body. Rope assisted back breaker and then a middle rope splash onto Renee Michelle. Emi then picks up Renee with a couple double underhooks onto her shoulder and then rotates her off her shoulder to the mat for the win. Not sure what this is called but it got the job done.
I wasn’t too “in” to this match if I’m being honest. Sometimes I feel like a lot of the intrigue with these Dark matches are if there’s some type of interesting development happening with the signed talent or that the enhancement talent looks like they might get signed. This match didn’t scan as that for me.
