Marina Shafir comes out with Nyla Rose to Nyla’s music. Not sure why she can’t have her own music. However, for the first time, this tag team has Vickie Guerrero in their corner! I was expecting Skye Blue and Brittany to be waiting in the ring but no! They get an entrance as both come out to Skye Blue’s music. Brittany’s (who also goes by Brittany Jade) gear is clearly inspired by Harley Quinn (more the cartoon one than from the movies). According to Cage Match she has 16 career matches.
Nyla opens the match by turning her back to Brittany and offers her a free shot from behind. As Brittany runs in, Nyla turns around and clotheslines her. Then Shafir comes in, Brittany offers a series of strikes which enrage Shafir as she begins to no-sell them. She punches Brittany in the side with a bolo punch and then O-goshi’s her over her hip. Nyla is tagged back in.
Brittany manages to escape Nyla to make a hot tag to Skye Blue. Skye goes on a run before hitting a flying crossbody off the top turnbuckle for a 2-count. Nyla & Marina take back control. Shafir hits a series of hip strikes on Skye Blue but rather than going for an O-goshi, Shafir drops down with a heel trip, then turns her around and delivers a German Suplex. Brittany breaks the pin attempt. Shafir and Skye both take each other out with strikes leading to both crawling to their corners for a tag.
Hot tag! Brittany runs in for her moment but Nyla absolutely trucks her. Pretty funny actually. Nyla bodyslams Brittany, hits her with a running kick then after making the tag to Shafir, power bombs Brittany before running to the opposite corner and kicking Skye Blue off the apron. Shafir hits Brittany with a kick to the back and then wraps her up in her “Greedy” submission for the win.
Interesting match. Lots of tags which kept the pace high. There were a few spots where it looked like maybe someone was going to do something but then called an audible but overall a really solid Dark/Elevation match.
