Free Match Friday is a weekly feature from Diva Dirt. Every Friday, we’ll spotlight a great indie match available to watch for free online. Some of the best wrestling in the world is happening in high school gyms and sports bars, and even, occasionally, in an appropriate venue for a wrestling match. This week, our free match is a Shine Nova title match between Jordynne Grace and Priscilla Kelly at Women’s Wrestling Revolution.
There are lots of wrestling characters with a proclivity for so-called “mind games” that vary widely in believability. Some of it is convincing enough, but then you have Bray Wyatt projecting stock footage of maggots onto the mat at WrestleMania 33. This week’s free match is a great example of wrestling where the mind games make sense, as Priscilla Kelly defends her Shina Nova title against Jordynne Grace.
Priscilla Kelly fully justifies her “Hell’s Favorite Harlot” gimmick in the ring as she grosses her way into Grace’s head. Sweat is just as much of a weapon for Kelly as her long legs, which she puts to effective use throughout the match with a series of stiff strikes. Grace is one of the most powerful wrestlers in the independent scene right now, and it takes a lot to look credible against her. Priscilla Kelly more than makes up for the size differential, by using her particular brand of in-ring shenanigans to put Grace on the wrong foot, the whole way through the match.
This is also a very particular hobby-horse of mine, but I truly enjoy this match’s appreciation of the human knee. There’s more to knees than submission holds! Knees get their day to shine in this match, and I can only applaud it.
Check back in with Diva Dirt next week for another great free match from the world of independent women’s wrestling.
