    Io was fire. That moonsault, DAAAAAMN.

    Good show overall. While I'm sad that Allysin Kay is already out I am really excited for these 16.

    Real good final few matches.

    Evers vs. Matsumoto was a nice, hard hitting, intense match. Matsumoto reminds me a lot of Asuka with a little less martial arts style. Not a bad thing.

    Eleban vs. Conti was decent. Eleban has a lot of personality, reminds me a bit of AJ Lee before the 'crazy' aspect became central, and Conti plays a good heel (though she needs to stop sticking her tongue out so much).

    I really like Isla Dawn. Good looking, interesting persona, solid in the ring, I dig her. Matthews was good but shame she was having trouble keeping her pants up, found it a bit distracting she was fixing them all the time. Solid match, though.

    Brookside is super cute. Really like her vibe. Surprised this match was as brief as it was but it was quite good while it lasted. That moonsault, Jesus, knees to the chest WHAMMO. Oof.

    I am super hyped for some of the second round matches, holy shit there is potential for some awesome stuff.

    Brookside, Matsumoto, Evers, Conti, Dawn, Io, Hernandez, Storm, Ripley and I've always had a soft spot for Kaitlyn. Loving this so far. Commentary is too gushy, but it's still better than the main roster. Not hard, I know and not really a compliment at all.

    Jinny, like her too. But, and I'm no expert on the matter, she looks like she may have some kind of eating disorder. There's nothing of her and she's pale as. Then again, with the paleness, she is British, so. And she performs fine, so probably more that she's just naturally that way.

    Really looking forward to the 2nd round.

    Jinny is the former fashion model so I assume the fact that the #1 requirement is to look like you're dying of some horrendous disease is just her way of life.

    Even though she is awfully skinny, that didn't stop her from bumping her tail off. In one match, I was sold on Jinny. I think she has tons of potential.

    It’s the gaunt face that made me especially think it. Probably nothing though.

    Getting caught up now. Evers looked like a star against Matsumoto. That's my match of the tournament so far, still got the rest of the episode to go.

    Satomura/Martinez was outstanding.

    Kacy has a lot of potential.

    Toni Storm has my heart. That match was lovely stuff too.

    Ripley will be a star as well.

    Storm/Matsumoto was a good hard hitting match.

    Kacy has shitloads of potential. I really liked how he fumble on the ropes actually fit the story and how she didn't get shit on for it but actually got a big pop for her second attempt. Rhea is badass, love her.

    Lane and Conti both seem like they have a lot of potential, as well. not much to the match but I dig the Cinderella story going with Lane, i suspect she might beat Satomura next round as a big jaw-dropper upset.

    Speaking of Satomura, the match with Martinez was fucking terrific. Just two badass veterans going to war. Loved it. Never seen that scorpion kick outside of Fire Pro so it was dope she used it.

    For two very inexperienced wrestlers they both handled the rope fumble well. It got the crowd more into it if anything

    The mainevent was great.

    I did think that was dope how the crowd got behind Kacy like they really really wanted her to pull that shit off.

    I echo all of of this. That was hands down the best episode so far, and possibly the best overall episode of both years. Two outstanding matches, and two that were good to really good between relatively inexperienced wrestlers. Kacy looked amazing, and the couple times she slipped up a bit, both her and Rhea handled it well and properly built up a second attempt that got the crowd pumped. I love the way Kacy comes out all sweet and humbled, but once she got deep into the match, she started showing some legit frustration with Rhea. Also, Rhea's kind of reminding me of a female Pete Dunne.

    I see a lot in Lane and Conti and bright futures for both, and while the match didn't stand out(or last as long) as the rest, I still found myself impressed with what we saw.

    And the opener and main event were great. The main event, I think ,went that extra mile that made it feel truly classic, but Storm and Matsumoto were beating the shit out of each other and told a great story.

    If it only gets better from here, this could end up topping the CWC.

    This. She's really got the facial expressions down in this regard.

    2 women I am somewhat shocked have not been part of this were MsChif and Cheerleader Melissa. Madison Eagles is another name. Maybe they were asked and turned it down. I also get that the MYC isn't some female Super 8 tournament with all the top indie women but those 3 would have been cool to see. Especially Eagles, I don't think she's even worked for TNA before so seeing her in this would have been nice.

    There wasn't a bad match last night. I really enjoyed Xia Li v. Purrazzo and Shirai v. Zeuxis.

    Damn I feel bad for Nicole Matthews. Her first match she was fighting her pants as much as she was her opponent. Last night she comes out in a one-piece and i think, "Yes, she solved the problem!" but then she was to be wrestling with her top more than with Nox and damn near lost her tits multiple times. Actually felt like they might've shortened the match for her sake.
    Also, I'm starting to wonder if (spoiler for next round):


    Xia Li is fucking badass and really impressive given her limited experience. Her match with Dionna was my match of the night.

    Shairi's matches haven't set my world on fire yet. They're fine but seem a bit standard to me. Her moonsault keeps being a bit off, too.

    Yim vs. Kaitlyn was very good. Kaitlyn seems to have improved from her previous run. Yim is great and I was really glad to hear she's signed.

    With Shirai we just have to take into consideration her first match was a straight up squash. This match we got to see a lot more out of her. You are right about the moonsault. It's already a hard move to pull off and land perfectly each time but yeah, she killed homegirl last week and this week she went too far lol. It might be wise to just say fuck it and give her a different finisher.

    But it is such a beautiful moonsault

    The ladies have been killing it. Kaitlyn looks so much better than her previous run, they've signed Mia (finally), and Rhea (and Kacy) are some breakout stars to me. What a great tournament!

    My son is way more fluent with Io Shirai than me and he said that she generally nails the moonsault with ease.

    Kacy imo is going to be a huge star if she wants to be and if her body can hold up. We tend to forget that aspect, sometimes people from other forms of entertainment look at this as a "challenge". It is so much more than that. So if she can work with the system (already hearing her say she's never going to be a heel....) and she doesn't get hurt or anything, sky is the limit. Imagine her in a ladder match. Good God!
