  1. I was looking forward to this because Santana is usually, solid and occasionally great, while Niven is always fun to watch. This was clearly the best laid out match of the first round. The whole thing flowed really well with some nice transitions and worked in both of their offenses in smoothly. The finish was nicely done to considering they were working a TV length match. Very good stuff. ***3/4
  2. This is a rematch of the February title match that these two had. These two had been a bit disappointing when working together when you consider that you had one of the best joshi workers of 2015 taking on one of the best women on the indies but I thought this was easily their best match together. Santana had her best performance in Stardom. Most notably, she did a great job of holding the match together when Hojo messed up a couple of spots. Other than the miscues, I thought Hojo was pretty good. I like how she mixed in submissions when Santana was getting the advantage in order to try and slow her down. The finish was well worked as Hojo was able to survive all of Santana's finishers in a reasonable way as to make her own comeback for the win seem realistic. ****
  3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFKc040pkfY&list=WL&index=117 This is a match between two women who are mostly known for being jobbers on NXT. I was most interested in seeing Purrazzo here as she get a fair bit of hype online, while I've enjoyed a lot of Santana's indy work. This was worked in a smart way. After some back and forth in the opening Santana picks up the pace with Purrazzo unable to keep up so she has to slow it down through stalling. Deonna doesn't do anything flashy but all of her offense is focused and her selling is tremendous. Santana is pretty mcuh Santana here, just another very good all around performance. Finish is a bit out of nowhere but doesn't take anything away from the work done before it. ***1/2
  4. Match Link This is Santana first defense of the 'White Belt' (wow that's weird to write) in Japan since she won it from Io Shirai late last year. Starts off with a catty strike exchange which leads to Hojo hitting a spear on Garrett. Santana uses a really good transition to get back in control and starts working over Hojo arm. The lead up to the finish has some great back-and-forth with probably the best setup to the usually contrived looking corner doublestomp. The finish itself was weak because they reuse the same finish, a rolling sunset flip, that Santana used to beat Io. Still, a fairly entertaining match despite the finish. ***1/2
  5. Match Link This is a 'Survivor Series' style tag with battle royal over-the-top eliminations as well. The World team gets off to a good start by being the more in sync team, which was surprising. They actually put over Viper strong as she pretty much takes out all of the Stardom women on her own, pinning Kyouga to get the first elimination. In the middle portion of the match they do a good job of giving the lower ranked women a chance to work some competitive sequences before getting eliminated. There is even some nice top rope teases before both Hojo and Santana get eliminated at the same time. Just a really fun match from start to finish, which is just what you want out of this type of match. ****
  6. This is a really fun, but short, title match. Despite the length, this is still a good showcase for both women. The thing that I like about these Santana title defenses is that each of her opponents have different strengths so you get to see her show off her versatility. Evie has mainly a kick based offense with some matwork mixed in so the story of the match is that Santana is able to keep up with Evie's offense plus get the advantage because she is able to mix in some different stuff that keeps Evie off balance. Would have been nice to see this go longer, but they were able to tell a good compact story with the time that they had. ***1/2
  7. Really fun title match that had these two going toe-to-toe right at the start. What really makes the match work is that both women are actually able to throw good strikes, which is rare for indy women. Santana gets bonus points for fearlessly bumping into the creepy guys in the crowd during some brawling outside of the ring. They do a frantic roll-up finish at the end which is worked a bit sloppy but did fit in with the pace they had worked all match. ***3/4
  8. A shockingly good makeshift main event as Kairi Hojo had to sit out this show due to a concussion, which forced them to redo the card with this as the main event. This is the first time I've seen Santana Garrett, as she's another woman who has been all over the indys but I've never actually watched. She looked really good here, breaking out some nice offense while keeping up with the pace of the natives and also had some nice chemistry with Hiroyo. Thunder Rocks keep their run of awesome finishes going here. They seem to know how to get their matches to finish at the right time and not deteriorate into 2.9 fests. ***3/4
  9. This is a really well done title vs. title match between to very good indy women. They did a nice job of showing off how even they are while still making it look like a competitive situation. My favourite part was when they teased a couple of typical non-finishes between champs with a double countout and double pin. The finish had some really nice back and forth. It came off as the proper way of doing a your turn/my turn finish as they worked in enough selling and struggle to make it convincing. ***3/4
