Review of Sleeperkid’s WorldFADE TO BLACK VELVETS – 14 mins

Wholesome cutie Cassidy is stretching out and warming up on the SKW mats as she awaits the arrival of her opponent. As she leans over to get her stretch on, she’s unaware that Black Velvets (Jacquelyn Velvets) has entered the mat room…and by the look on her face, she’s not amused in the slightest. Jacquelyn briskly approaches Cassidy, demanding to know how she could POSSIBLY be her opponent? Ms. Velvets continues ranting on about how much stronger than Cassidy she is, and even goes so far as to toss in a ‘don’t you know who I am!?!’ style comment. Cassidy doesn’t seem too phased by Jacquelyn’s emotional outburst, however. Being rational, Cassidy brings up the match and the ladies decide to move forward with the days planned match, with the rules set as the best of 3 wins. As soon as the terms are decided, the ladies face off and lock up. After a short struggle, Jacquelyn delivers a knee to Cassidy’s belly before putting her through several snap mares. Now that Cassidy is sufficiently weakened, Jacquelyn stands her up and cripples her with a spiked DDT, which gains her a 10 count pin as well as the lead/first point of the match. At first, it would seem the first round had set the tone for the match as Jacquelyn systematically put Cassidy through the wringer. Instead of gaining points as quickly as possible, Ms. Velvets enjoys toying with Cassidy. The match is fast paced, with Cassidy seemingly having no end in sight to her epic losses to Jacquelyn as the conclusion draws nearer and nearer… Cassidy is stomped awake and stood up after a tombstone piledriver and 10 count pin, seeming worse for the wear. Jacquelyn is smug, thinking that she’s got all her ducks in a row and this little weakling Cassidy all tied up with a bow. Once she has Cassidy on her feet, Jacquelyn swings hard for a face punch….and Cassidy DUCKS, simultaneously delivering a stomach kick that doubles Jacquelyn over. Grabbing Ms. Velvets and the upper hand, Cassidy quickly executes a devastating stunner on her egotistical opponent. Instead of letting her go out, Cassidy punishes her as much as possible by bringing her to the wall for some belly abuse topped off with a crushing standing foot choke. Jacquelyn hits the mat like a sack of potatoes. Cassidy enjoys her reign of dominance over the cocky Jacquelyn, delivering some truly powerful holds fueled by her thirst for revenge. She takes her sweet time obtaining her ‘official’ win, closing out the bout with a series of face punches that drop Jacquelyn flat on her back. Cassidy follows her down, delivering a brutal ground and pound punishment. Jacquelyn is on the very brink of consciousness when Cassidy whispers: “You said I was weak and you were stronger…..night night!”

This is a video that I am really happy to see and a little sad at the same time. The sad part is pretty simple, I just feel like it’s a little too soon to see Black Velvets lose a match already. I felt like we were still building the persona of how bad ass of a heel she could be, but me nor SK can control what the customers want to see so, oh well. That being said I can never really be disappointed at a Jacquelyn Velvets defeat, she is and has always been a fantastic jobber, so seeing her lose is always a treat. I also like that Cassidy got some time on the losing side too. Just like Jackie, Cassidy too has always been a fantastic jobber and they both can play the heel role too, especially Jackie with her cocky attitude, I just love that character of hers. I liked that there were a bunch of pins and all the pins were leg hook pins. It definitely seemed like this custom specified on how the leg hook pins should be done. The moves where nothing too complicated or crazy and neither was the selling, pretty basic stuff, not that it’s a negative thing, I get plenty of OTT stuff so it’s okay when we get a vid that’s not OTT in any way. We do get piledriver KO from both Cassidy and Miss Velvets, I can’t remember the last time Jacquelyn took a piledriver, so that’s definitely a high spot in the video, it’s also the only part with a bit of twitching too. Overall, I really liked this vid, good pacing, nice moves, good story, well sold, both ladies lose for a bit, great outfits, nothing I want to complain about at all.

Overall score: 9.5/10
