Big Bad Blog Video Theater-Shayna Baszler vs Kairi Sane
Here's the match video of Kairi Sane defending her NXT Women's Championship vs Shayna Baszler. The match is very similar to the Brooklyn match. Shayna is the bully but she underestimates Kairi. So I want to talk about the ending. I thought at first it was botched. Now I think they used the wrong camera angle and it made the ref look inept. Jessica Carr has worked NXT TV and this is her first big show. Kairi throws Shayna into the front row. And I remember thinking that Shayna's pals were there. And sure enough Jessamyn Duke attacks Kairi and Kairi lands a back fist. Kairi gets back into the ring and Marina Shafir comes up on the apron and tries to attack Kairi. Kairi hits her with a back fist. The camera angle shows that Jessica sees Marina and we see on TV that she sees her. Maybe the WWE doesn't care if refs look stupid. A DQ probably should have been called. If they didn't use that camera angle it's not an issue. Also Jessica wasn't wearing an earpiece so someone could tell her to change the finish. Kairi went into the ropes where Jessamyn kicked her into Shayna's choke. It doesn't matter much because this feud will expand. You'll have the Horsewomen vs Kairi, Io Shirai and I figure Mia Yim. Also Kairi didn't tap out so that can be used on TV too. I don't like it when the refs are made to look stupid. And I guess in this case it was the TV director who messed up. Enjoy the video!
