DAKOTA KAI & RAQUEL GONZALEZ VS. EMBER MOON & SHOTZI BLACKHEART – WOMEN’S DUSTY RHODES TAG TEAM CLASSIC FINAL MATCH
We have a RAMP! Nothing makes me think big show more than a ramp going straight to the ring. It is the WCW mark in me.
Oh no, now Shotzi has a new song with Welcome to the Ball Pit in it. I guess there goes any chance of her stopping using that.
