This is, without a doubt, one of the most intense piledriver battles we’ve yet to witness at SKW! Saya Savage and Kayla Lael give their ALL in a multi-fall pro match that MUST end with a piledriver and a pin…until a time limit decides who’s scored the most points! We mean it, guys…the sheer intensity in this battle is worth the price alone, not to mention the sheer beauty and skill exuded by both determined fighters! Here’s the breakdown (spoilers): (All rounds end with a pin and victory pose unless otherwise noted) Round one: the girls lock up and Kayla dominates with belly blows, knees to the gut, a single leg choke, a leg nelson, skull f*cker KO, a huge gut punch, and a BRUTAL traditional PILEDRIVER KO! A single leg matchbook pin (with an added blow to the face KO) gets Kayla the point! Round two: Saya attacks with a low blow kick and a sudden Fireman’s Stunner that leaves Kayla nearly out! Saya follows up with a standing boston crab and a brutal TOMBSTONE piledriver, followed by a lazy pin that she uses to crush the air out of Kayla for a follow up pin…and win! Round three: An enraged Kayla kicks Saya in the belly and delivers a BRUTAL Fisherman’s Neckbreaker KO, but she’s just getting warmed up! She follows up with an X-Factor KO, a powerful face kick, and a TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER KO. She hooks the sleeping wrestler’s legs for a tight straddle pin, adding insult to injury with a blow to the face to keep her out! Round four: Saya attacks with a series of elbow smashes to Kayla’s face, following up with a back stomp, a tight reverse headlock chokeout KO, and a POWERFUL small package piledriver KO! She goes for a matchbook pin…one that includes a brutal face punch overkill KO! Round five: the girls are exhausted, but they go at it tooth and nail. Kayla manages to secure a TOMBSTONE piledriver but Saya REVERSES it (!!!)…not to be outdone, however, Kayla secures a standing neckscissors while trapped in the tombstone, causing both girl to come down HARD on the mats. Kayla is instantly KO’ed but Saya manages to make a lazy cover…counting slowly until she passes out RIGHT before she can finish it! The match is tied! FINAL round: Kayla nails a boot to Saya’s midsection and goes for a final piledriver…but Saya manages to turn it into a REVERSE PILEDRIVER KO! Saya goes for a lazy cover but Kayla manages to lift her shoulder. Saya grabs Kayla by the hair but Kayla nails three big belly blows that stun her. Kayla manages to nail a brutal SMALL PACKAGE DRIVER KO, but she can’t get the pin. A weakened Saya manages a low blow counter and decides to end it with the dreaded KILLER DRILLER PILEDRIVER KO! Kayla is OUT COLD. Saya goes for a single leg hook pin but adds an elbow choke JUST to make sure Kayla stays out for the final pin…and the win! YOUR WINNER: SAYA SAVAGE!
It’s always great to see Kayla at SKW, like Luna, whenever Kayla is around, especially if she’s losing, you’re going to be in for a great video. Kayla’s selling is always a little over the top, a little extra twitching, great eye rolling, always a little tongue protrusion and not to mention just the way she tosses her body around, makes her videos tons of fun to watch. This is definitely one of the better Far Beyond Driven matches of late, Kayla and Saya both take some great looking bumps and sell everything excellently. I love the all the different piledrivers and all the different pins, as well as some other great power moves mixed in. I love how this ended, with Kayla being the visitor and being such a good jobber I hopped she would lose, and what a great way she did. A fantastic final piledriver, pin, extra choke out, that left Kayla with her tongue hanging out and her eyes stuck open and crossed, loved that so much. The ladies also looked great, love the pro look with thong backs, the boots and sleeves. I don’t think there’s anything Saya can do to not look amazing in absolutely everything and I think the same can be said for Kayla (although she does like to overdo it with makeup, not in this case thankfully). Overall, this was a fun, action packed, hard hitting addition to what has to be the longest running SKW series ever.
Overall Score: 9.5/10
