After watching about six fantastic grappling matches in a row, we decided to donate a bit of variety to the 2008 WWC by putting on two pro-style matches for our San Diego fans to enjoy! Even though these two battles were very last minute, we had a blast with them...and the ladies did a grand job of improvising and delivering the high spots, leading to some nice pops (that's "bursts of applause", for those not hip to the lingo) from the usually-grappling-obsessed crowd!
The first battle features Sapphire vs Fantasy in a fast-paced back and forth battle with tons of your fave pro tactics, including arm-wringers, snapmares, armlocks, leglocks, reversals, chain wrestling, atomic drop, a brutal standing suplex, pump handle slam, camel clutch, boston crab, rope breaks, 2nd rope jumping snapmare, clothesline, somersault senton splash, X-Factor, leg nelson, fisherman's nckbreaker, and a final CODE RED finisher that took everyone in the room by surprise!
Battle # 2 was the least popular of the two (most of the guys there had NO interest in seeing a dude in the ring...), but it's my personal favorite (for obvious reasons)! This one features Jackson vs SK in a brutal back and forth intergender battle with an awesome twist ending that doesn't suck (take THAT, M. Night Shyamalan!). SK takes an early lead with some arm attacks, but Jackson quickly returns the favor, forcing SK to flip onto the mats. The SKW dancer presses her advantage, landing a series of jumping split-splashes that wows the crowd. SK reverses with a suplex, following up with some high-flying splashes, but once again Jackson turns it around, trapping SK in a single-leg boston crab and then nailing one HELL of a suplex that once again surprised and delighted the Con crowd. She traps SK in a grapevine, adding some headbutts for emphasis, but SK goes for one last act of retaliation, reversing and trapping Jackson in a brutal boston crab that goes SO far that a few people in the audience actually voice their concerns...that is, until Jackson replies with a reversal standing neck scissors, coming back from SK's clothesline to finally trap the boss in a brutal camel clutch!
Right as SK is about to tap, however, his buddy SAPPHIRE enters the ring and delivers a brutal kick to Jackson's back! Being that this is a no DQ match, the fight continues as SK and Sapphire prepare to nail a 2-on-1 standing suplex...only to have Jackson reverse it into a swing-out DOUBLE DDT! The ring is all chaos as Jackson slowly makes it to her feet...going for the attack on Sapphire, nailing a flawless flying neckscissors takedown and finally catching SK with a Frankensteiner that leaves him flattened for the 3 count win!
