Hikaru Shida kicks of this episode against Erica Leigh aka “The Big Gal” aka “The Gummi Bear Kid” aka “The Technicolor Tecnico”. Erica’s a veteran of 4 years with over 100 matches. She has something of a comedy gimmick.
After being equal in strength on the lockup she yells at Shida “HIT ME”. Shida obliges but Erica actually holds her own for a few rounds until she’s struck with a hard forearm. She dodges a dropkick from the top rope and capitalizes with a big boot. Shida takes momentum back and hits a Meteroa off the middle rope for two but this immediately sets up the Katana for the win.
A quick match. Erica got to show her size (she’s quite a bit taller than Shida) and some power as well as some decent selling.
