Review of HIGHLIGHTS: volume 35

Review of Sleeperkid’s WorldHIGHLIGHTS: volume 35 – 16 mins

The popular Highlights series continues, this time featuring the first meeting between the legendary SKW veteran ANNE MARIE and the ravishing new comer to SKW, LUNA LAIN!!! We fade in with Luna striking a kneeling victory pose over the prone and unconscious Anne Marie, appearing very proud of herself and smiling ear to ear having earned the victory over her much more experienced opponent.  But how did all of this happen? We travel back several hours as Anne Marie is stretching out, only for Luna sneak attack her and clamp on a Sleeperhold!  The tension and chemistry between these two is palpable from the start as Luna is determined to embarrass the vet and show the fans not to sleep on the new girl on the block.  However despite her treachery Anne Marie quickly takes control and uses a sleeper of her own to put the Luna down for the KO! You aren’t going to sneak attack someone like Anne Marie and not pay consequences and the beautiful blonde goes after Luna with brutal forearm smashes and a running kick to the back of the head that once again knocks the red head out, only for her to drop to the mat in an embarrassing Deri-“air” KO pose.  Anne Marie wants to add some injury to that insult and instead of going for the pin applies a picture perfect Figure Four leg lock that has Luna screaming! But it seems this rookie might have a trick or two up her sleeve and with seconds Luna has managed to reverse the hold, making Anne Marie howl in pain until the hold is broken.  Luna presses her new advantage and stuns the veteran with a series of X Factors (with an instant replay), that render Anne Marie unconscious.  Multiple faceslams into the mat keep Anne Marie groggy and unable to stop a “Code of Silence” modified figure four headscissor that once again sends her off to dreamland. That alone would have probably been enough to get the win but Luna is here to prove a point and she certainly does as Anne Marie is subjected to a Stunner KO and multiple Tombstone Piledrivers that keep her from remaining conscious for more than few seconds at a time. But all good things must come to an end and for our weary veteran that end comes as Luna applies a perfect Sleeperhold that leave the blonde robbed of both her consciousness and her dignity as a drooling mess on the mats.  Luna folds her foe up in a matchbook pin and further adds to the humiliating defeat by counting out her ten count pin with a series of condescending smacks on the butt before striking the same victory pose that opened this awesome clash of titans. YOUR WINNER: LUNA LAIN!!!

This is a clip that I feel has flown under the radar when it really shouldn’t have. Even though this video is a highlights vid and we’ve seen a ton of them before, what this really turns out to be is another incredible jobbing performance from Anne-Marie. You could almost call this a squash video as it doesn’t take too long for things to go downhill for Anne, but she does get a few moves and KOs in on Luna before that. And Luna shouldn’t be ignored either. She too does a hell of a job selling in this on too, but it’s without a doubt that Anne-Marie stole the show. Luna hands out a surprisingly brutal beatdown on Anne, showing off that little frame of hers is house to some decent strength. She hits Anne with a ton of finishers, 3 X-factors, a stunner, 3 tombstone piledrivers in a row and a final sleeper that has the barely conscious Anne-Marie twitching and drooling all over herself. There’s also a Code of Silence leg scissors hold, which is a finishing submission hold as well, some great leg drops on a half conscious Anne and of course some belly punching too. There’s plenty of other twitching as well, as Anne sells this one like only she can. Fans of Anne-Marie’s incredible jobbing skills, this is one you cannot miss and as I said Luna shouldn’t be ignored, not only showing some more of her jobber skills but some impressive heel skills as well.

Overall score: 9.9/10
