Vita VonStarr w/ Bateman, Dutch vs Sumie Sakai
(referee: Joe Mandak)
Result: Sumie Sakai wins via pinfall with a small package
Good match. There were moments in the middle of the match where it felt like communication was starting to break down between the wrestlers, but overall this was fun. It was a nice introduction to Vita VonStarr (being her first ROH match), and it was fun seeing Sumie Sakai back in the ring. Sakai kept things light, and VonStarr tried to make things dark and dirty with lots of cheating including bites and chokes. Sakai looked like she was in control of most of the match, but VonStarr has some good power that she should capitalize on.
After the match, Vita VonStarr attacks Sumie Sakai. VonStarr applies a submission move using the ropes, then she releases it to head to the back with Dutch and Bateman.
Quinn McKay says Maria is going to have a tough time trying to control Vita VonStarr in the women’s division.
Maria Kanellis Bennett gets Rok-C on a video call and offers her a spot in the upcoming women’s championship tournament. Rok-C also talks briefly about her trainers and her career in pro wrestling so far.
