Toni Storm (c) vs Killer Kelly
wXw Women’s Championship
Turbinenhalle, Oberhausen, Germany
(reviewed 03/22/2019) Not bad. The most common complaint you’ll see about western women’s wrestling is how unimpactful it is physically and while there’s still a good amount of that here (those bumps into the first few rows of chairs, yeesh) these ladies mostly get it right. Kelly in particular knows how to put some weight behind her strikes and she tends to bring some sort of quality out of Storm when they link up. Storm’s overt heeling gets in the way of that to some degree (and also falls flat as hell on this crowd, which doesn’t help) but she connects with some thudding blows when she needs to. Hardly the best match from this weekend of shows but I sure didn’t hate it.
