History was definitely made in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia with Natalya and Lacey Evans participating in the first-ever women’s match. The match was of great respect between both women as they shook hands during the match and would celebrate afterward with an emotional hug. They would also hug and take pictures with the female fans in the front row.
Natalya pulled off with a victory as she would cause Evans to submit to the Sharpshooter. The match was of decent length and both women put on a great show. It was pretty evenly matched and Evans would deliver her moonsault as well.
Natalya’s entrance and presence in the ring first were met with fireworks and Evans received pyro. Fireworks would also go off after the match.
Overall the crowd reaction for the ladies was well received and they would receive “this is awesome” chants on a couple of occasions.
It was definitely a sign of hope for the women in attendance, especially the young girls sitting in the crowd.
Lana was also in attendance for the event as she accompanied Bobby Lashley to the ring.
