Post by TJ Hawke:
Caprice Coleman has always struck me as a wrestler with a ton of potential who has never been properly used by any promotion of real note (most notably by Ring of Honor during his lengthy full-time run in the company). It seems somewhat fitting then that this project would lead me to watching a match where you see all of Coleman’s potential unrealized in a match that could be so much more.
The athleticism on display here was impressive, and the execution of the mechanical aspects of pro wrestling was done well. When push comes to shove though, I was just not entertained by this match because I was never sucked into the story. It was a bit too 50/50ish for the pace they worked, and Dutt’s ability to stay a step ahead of Caprice enough to win was not hammered home enough to be interesting. The match was perfectly acceptable but not something needed to be seen. [Finish: Dutt won with a top-rope splash.] (**1/2)
