Quick hits from around the world of the AWC. A number of matches took place in the recent weeks and the AWC Times was there to provide coverage and pass along the results. These matches featured some promising newcomers and some key matchups within the Clubs. Each of the matches were one fall matches and we are bringing you some highlights from each match.
Belle versus Hailey
Hailey welcomed newcomer Belle to the AWC West Coast Club. While Hailey was hoping to show the newcomer her place in the Club, it turned out that Belle put Hailey in her place instead. That place happened to be screaming out a submission to Belle and being battered about throughout the duration of their five minute match. I guess we can now say “Welcome to the AWC to Belle”.
Catrin versus Milena
Milena, coming off a hard loss to Zora, looks to stop the early success of Catrin as they do battle in a matchup with Number One contender implications in the European title hunt. Milena needed the win to insert herself back into the conversation and Catrin looking to close the door on Milena’s hopes for a title match and position herself as a legitimate contender. In the end, Catrin dashed Milena’s hopes in a short fight where Catrin roughed up and submitted Milena in less than 3 minutes.
Zora versus Shayla
In another key battle with Number One contender implications in the European Club, Zora matched up with Shayla. Both have been very successful and Zora’s start has been on the rise. Shayla intended to solidify her claim to a title fight and at the same time deflate Zora’s claims to be a top fighter in the Club. Shayla got off to a good start and almost forced a submission out of Zora on several occasions. Unfortunately for Shayla, she underestimated Zora’s toughness and resilience and in the second half of the fight is dominated and battered before being forced to cry out her surrender after a grueling 12 minute battle. Zora thoroughly humiliated Shayla after the submission causing the tough blonde to break down in tears on the floor.
Katya versus Inga
In another match featuring a newcomer to the European Club, Inga faced off against Katya. Inga looked to rebound at the expense of the new girl, with Katya wanting to get off to a successful start in the AWC.
Soo Min versus Britta
This next match up came to us from the Pacific Club as winless Britta takes on Korean newcomer Soo Min. Britta viewed their match as a great opportunity to get a win, while her opponent came into the fight with all the confidence of a new fighter.
Charlotte versus Shriya
The Pacific Club brought us another important match as Shriya and Charlotte both looked to rebound from losses. At one point Charlotte was a contender for the Pacific Club title. Since being knocked out by Bao she hasn’t been the same. This could be a make or break fight for her. Shriya, on the other hand, was embarrassed by Anushka in her last match and sees this as a chance to score a meaningful win over a tough opponent.
