Darling is arguably the best wrestler, to have never won Summer Vengeance. along with AX, she is the only other woman to have competed in every Summer Vengeance (5-4) she has advanced to the 1/2 final round, in three of her previous four appearances. she went 3-0 in the regular season, winning her three matches by a combined total of 2320-31. she went straight thru to the 1/4 final round, as the #4 seed.
Mahina “Freezing Moon” Zaltana was the best pure rookie to come out of season 8. she lost both of her regular season matches, but now finds herself on a two-match winning streak, following wins over Serena Blair and Sara Jay. Mahina is on a short list of double-digit seeds (Devi Lynne, Madison Young, Amber Rayne) to make it to the 1/4 final round. she is looking to become the first to advance to the next stage.
Mahina could muster no offense, as Darling overwhelmed her from the start. a combination of brutal submission holds, and finger-fucking, left Mahina helpless on the mat. Darling rolled to a 506-6 win. it was a helluva run for Mahina, who should be a force in the mid-card, come next season. ain’t no shame in getting beat by a legend! for Darling, this is her fourth trip to the 1/2 final round. will this be the year she finally wins it all?
these could be the best 1/2 final pairings we’ve ever had. in terms of the match-ups, both feature wrestlers of similar build, styles, and experience. two wrestlers who have been here before against two that haven’t.
DARLING vs. BELLA – in an Academy style match, Darling would be the overwhelming favourite. Bella’s size advantage will push Darling’s endurance to the limit. while we do give Darling the nod in terms of overall skillset, we are picking Bella to knock off her second straight Big 4 opponent, by 75 points or less.
ARIEL X VS. CHEYENNE – the two best pound-for-pound wrestlers in the industry today. they are also two of the most well-conditioned athletes on the site. I haven’t looked forward to a match this much since AX vs. Dia in the 1/2 final round, two years ago. we are picking AX to win, BUT, wouldn’t be surprised if Cheyenne pulls the upset. whoever wins this match, is our pick to win Summer Vengeance.
