Marina Shafir and Vickie Guerrero join Nyla Rose for her entrance. Interestingly, Excalibur puts over what a force Shafir & Nyla are in *ahem* “AEW’s Women’s Tag Team Division”, are we getting closer to AEW Women’s Tag Team belts?

Nyla & Marina attack their opponents before the bell. Nyla throws Navarro into Reckless and then hits a Falling Neckbreaker on Reckless, making her DDT her own partner! Creative spot there! Nyla pursues Joseline on the floor, leaving Marina and Heather in the ring allowing Rick Knox to finally call for thebell to start the match.
Shafir attacks Reckless in her corner before dropping her in the ring. She tags in Nyla who hoists Reckless up in like a bearhug position. Shafir kicks Reckless in the back and then goes to the other side and kicks her in the head. Nyla pins Heather Reckless for the win.
Was this a good match? No. But that wasn’t the point. The fact that it lasted only 46 seconds was the point. Excalibur opened up the segment talking about what a force they were and the match result backed that up. Post match, Vickie Guerrero does a promo introducing that this team will now be known as The Beasts of Burden before instructing Nyla and Marina to continue beating the living piss out of Heather Reckless & Joseline Navarro. Perfect segment for what it needed to accomplish.

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.
