We open with current SKW champ Sapphire on the mat, voicing her concerns about this new girl, Kayla, who has been emailing her about a match, to the point of cyber-stalking. As Sapphire runs through the list of ways she feels creeped out, Kayla suddenly appears from behind her, chair in hand, which she sends smashing between Sapphire’s shoulders, dropping the amazon to the ground. Stunned, Sapphire flails as Kayla hauls her back to her feet, only to ram her head first into the nearby wall over and over, before unloading a series of belly punches into Sapphire’s abdomen, making her stagger doubled over, perfectly positioned to be polished off with a pedigree. Sapphire’s head bounces off the mat and she lays clutching her neck as Kayla crawls over her, hitting a series of leg drops to the back of Sapphire’s neck, scooting in to count out a pin, which Sapphire just barely kicks out of. Not deterred, Kayla hauls Sapphire back to her feet and then runs at the nearby wall, Sapphire’s head locked under her shoulder, spinning her into an off-the-wall DDT that rocks her head off the mat. Kayla float over her attempting to pin her again, but only manages seven before Sapphire kicks out. Kayla hauls her back to her feet, attempting to yank her up into a powerbomb, but Sapphire puts on the brakes and instead launches Kayla into a brutal back drop that leaves Kayla twitching. Sapphire decides o return the favors, throwing Kayla head first into the wall before absolutely unloading punch after punch into Kayla’s belly, followed up by a series of running knee lifts that drop the spunky competitor to the floor. The perfect place for a series of belly splashes followed up by a camel clutch that makes Kayla’s eyes roll and cross before fluttering shut. Sapphire goes on the attack, punishing Kayla in brutal torture racks than make her pass out, cradle sharp shooters that make her squeal, cradle suplexes that rock Kayla’s head, surfboard stretches that make Kayla twitch and whimper, modified sleeper holds that have her eyes rolling as she gasps for air, bearhugs that crush the air out of her, head vices that make her spasm and thrash as drool dribbles from her mouth, a leg hooked double arm bar that makes Kayla beg and scream until she passes out, head smashes into the mat, or more. Has Kayla bitten off more than she can chew?
Let me tell you, Kayla Obey is quite the talent, I mean for someone who has spent most of her career being a solo performer, she has come to SKW and meshed in so well with everything is it awe-inspiring. You have to think, this is the first, or second time, depending on which visit this was on, that Kayla has been at SKW and have been given the opportunity to perform these pro style moves and she is out here nailing them like she’s been doing it for years. And this time, unlike in my custom, where she was ragdolled from start to finish, Kayla gets to do some offensive moves and again, does them with what seems like is incredible ease. I don’t know if it’s just because I am such a Kayla mark, or if she really is just doing everything she was asked to do and crushing it. Speaking of crushing it, this was a match against Sapphire, so even though she got a little offense in, Kayla did get crushed by the SKW champ, as you would expect and that of course is why I love this video. Seeing Kayla Obey at SKW, starring in these pro style squashes is still a dream come true for me, even when it is not my custom. Sapphire is like the female Tiny, she comes in there and hits all these spectacular moves that leave her opponents as nothing more than practice dummies. Kayla pulling off the pro style moves, both giving and taking is impressive, but her playing the helpless victim, is expected and she of course does that excellently here. Kayla slowly gets weaker and weaker as the KOs pile up, until the point that she can’t stand on her own any more, or if Sapphire wakes her up, but doesn’t pick her up Kayla goes back to sleep in seconds. I mean when this beatdown is finish Kayla is basically a ragdoll. Not an OTT ragdoll though, even though there is twitching and one bit of drooling, it is not what I think would be considered OTT and that’s not a strike against this one, not in this case. This that pro style beatdown that Sapphire is famous for handing out, with just a bit of twitching as Sapphire starts to hit the big moves near the end. Overall, I am so glad that we go to see Kayla Obey in this kind of Sapphire squash match, I mean this is part thirty for crying out loud, an SKW staple that I am grateful she got to perform for us.
Overall Score: 9.9/10
