This match being on the card was a nice surprise! Firstly, with my seat by the ramp, I suddenly spot Heather Reckless walk past me, who’s a prospect I’m pretty high on. I gave a joyful “Oh hey Heather!” and she seemed to appreciate the acknowledgment.
And then Penelope Ford’s music hit! We haven’t seen her since January! This was a total surprise to me!
Penelope dominates in the ring early just outclassing Reckless but would get cocky leading to Heather getting in some offence, sending Ford retreating to the floor. Reckless pursues but Penelope catches her before whipping her into the barricade right were ol’ box head Kip Sabian happens to be sitting. He’d slow clap for Penelope and Penelope would touch his hand for a second. This has been a tease a year in the making folks!
Ford picks Reckless back up and rolls her into the ring. Penelope hits a handspring elbow in the corner, then a Gut Buster in the centre of the ring before executing the Indian Death Lock for the win. I tried to congratulate Penelope but she was having none of it, lol.
Great to see Penelope Ford back! Great to see Heather Reckless live, even if it was a short match. There was a few things to be excited about, external to this squash match. Hopefully we so a lot more of Penelope, Kip, Penelope & Kip, and Heather soon.
