This was for Io’s World of Stardom Championship.
This was fucking excellent. While their match a year later came off a little light and casual all things considered, this one felt like a bloody war. Viper was far more brutal and unforgiving here, and Io had to fight so much harder to keep her down for the three count. The level of violence progressively got higher and higher. The intensity was off the charts by the end. It was just some great big wrestler vs. smaller wrestler wrestling. If Viper was just a better performer, this would have been a clear top five match of the year. As it was though, it was top 20 without that. (****1/4)
