KiLynn King suddenly being featured in AEW. Excalibur refers to Mafiosa as “Valentina Rossi” so either an old habit or she’s still going by that. Both these women are very tall.
King dominates early but is stopped going for a pump handle move. Mafiosa works back into this match including an impressive foot to the throat in the corner while doing the splits.
KiLynn hits a big Dropkick from the middle rope, she works Mafiosa into the opposite corner and knees her off the turnbuckle. She then drags Mafiosa into the middle of the ring. She fights of fa suplex attempt before King finally gets her Pumphandle finisher which looks awesome! I’m sure we’ll get a name for this move soon.
Post match, Tony Schiavone interviews KiLynn King about her upcoming match against Britt Baker. KiLynn feels actually pretty comfortable on the mic – not too stylized but comfortable and like she’s speaking with her own voice.
Britt Baker comes out, says she’d take out King right now but “DMD don’t do Darks”. King goads Britt into making physical contact with her and KiLynn leaves her laying. Great teaser. Deserves a recap on Dynamite.

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.
