Everybody get up on your feet!😃 It’s Willow Nightingale!🥳 NOW I said.😐
Willow’s facing Australian native, Harley Cameron. Harley isn’t on Cage Match so I’m gleaning what I can from her Twitter (@itsdanni_ellexo). Luckly, AEW Enhancement Talent (@AEWEnhance) comes through again!

Some standing wrist locks to start which Willow puts her own fun twist on by making Harley’s hand wave at the crowd. Willow really puts the “play” into “playing with her food” as she blocks Harley and finds herself in sort of a dance position so she clasps Cameron’s hand and dances with her for a second.
Harley gets pissed off and makes a comeback with some knees and hard shots. Willow, suddenly taking this contest more seriously, returns fire coming back with some clotheslines, a spine buster and then a pounce setting Cameron up for the Cannon Ball in the corner. Willow completes the “Get My Shit In” checklist by hitting The Babe With The Powerbomb (what she calls her Doctor Bomb) for the win.
Overall, everything was executed pretty well with maybe exception to Harley’s part on the Pounce but I can see why that can be a tricky move to time right. I doubt anyone noticed though as I’m weirdly pedantic about certain spots and not others. Speaking out of both sides of my mouth for a moment, I did actually like how the Doctor Bomb looked a little laboured in execution. It made it look like Harley Cameron was fighting it and it shows just how strong Willow actually is as she just powers through it. She’s so cool you guys.
