Wrasslin’ Noir Recap 2/29


The pandering MVP fell into the ring to challenge Drew McIntyre because he was disrespected. It was more the same as it has been for anyone stepping to the Rumble winner. Porter caught a mean Claymore to fall in his second match back. B-

Lana and Zelina Vega linked up to put their associates in a team for a classic feud combination match.

One of the powerhouses of the women division, Big Swole, made her appearance in a fatal fourway with little title implications. Swole came off as the dominant competitor for the duration of the match, but it would be her who would also take a running knee leading to the closing pin. B
