AEW has announced that Diamante will face AEW Women’s Champion, Hikaru Shida next week in a non-title match.
Shida will have a tough challenge on her hands as Diamante comes into the match with two consecutive wins. Her first victory was against KiLynn King on Tuesday’s Dark. She would then defeat Ivelisse on last night’s Dynamite.
Diamante vs Ivelisse was announced last week and was a highly anticipated match up. Both competitors were making their AEW Dynamite debuts and made sure that they left their mark.
The match was rough and tough, fierce and furious. Both fighters beat the hell out of each other from beginning to end.
The match starts with Ivelisse getting in Diamante’s face followed with a barrage of chops in the corner. Ivelisse stops to gloat allowing Dimante to fight back with a round of strikesof her own.
The action would continue with both competitors bouncing off one another mercilessly firing increasingly stiff shots, strikes and kicks.
The intensity would increase as they would take the action outside. National pride would come to play as they traded vicious chops while calling out the name of their respective country.
Back in the ring, the stiff strikes would continue, with a few headlocks thrown in for good measure. Ivelisse would throw some insults Dimante’s way. This would result in another nasty round of strikes.
Diamante would get the better of Ivelisse and deliver two clotheslines followed by a German Suplex for a close fall.
Ivelisse would smash Diamante with a powerbomb for a near fall. Diamante recovered and rolled Ivelisse up in a small package for a hard-fought victory.
This was brutal, strike-heavy match. Diamante and Ivelisse went out there to prove a point. They held nothing back and showed some real intensity. These two have a lot of history, which should’ve really been highlighted beforehand with a simple video package that AEW is really good at producing.
This was a good match. It showcased two highly competitive wrestlers that are prepared to give it all in the ring. Expect to see them team up for the upcoming women’s tag team tournament – The Deadly Draw.
In the meantime Diamante will get another chance to show what she can do against AEW Women’s Champion, Hikaru Shida next week.
