Kelly Klein vs Deonna Purrazzo
(referee: Paul Turner)
Result: Kelly Klein wins via pinfall with a bridging northern lights suplex
This was pretty good, but the pro-wrestling shenanigans near the end of the match were more of an aggravation than anything else. Referee Paul Turner got blinded (or something) in a very unconvincing fashion, and the whole setup and execution of the finish felt predictable.
Other than that, I thought the match was pretty good. Klein is big and dominant, and her character of an arrogant heel works well. I really wanted her to lose. Purrazzo looked just as good as Klein, and I think they matched up pretty well.
