AEW’s Women’s Tag Team Tournament returned for its second episode and second round of quarter-final matches. Last week’s show offered up an array of surprise competitors, guest appearances and shock victories.
The only match announced before the show was Ivelisse and Diamante vs Dasha and Ellering. This would end up being the second match of the show.
The first match was fully announced right before it took place. Big Swole drew her color and ended up being paired with someone she knows very well and that was Lil’ Swole (Nicole Savoy). Savoy has a ton of experience in the indies and is the longest-reigning Shimmer Champion at 721-days before she was dethroned by Kimber Lee. This team took on the last random pairing of Leva Bates and Rache Chanel.
The history between Big & Lil’ Swole was too much for their opponents as they pulled out with the win to advance to the semi-finals. They will take on the Nightmare Sisters next who advance from their first round.
The second match was the advertised match and it had perhaps the most surprising entrant into the tournament and that was Dasha. She paired up with someone she has been friends with for years in that of Rachael Ellering. They did what they could, but at the end of the day, they weren’t able to get a win, and Ivelisse and Diamante advanced.
Ivelisse and Diamante advance to face the team of Tay Conti and Anna Jay (TayJay) in the upcoming semi-final bout. You can view the matches by the YouTube clip below:
