– There were two more dark matches at Thursday night’s Mae Young Classic tapings from Full Sail University. MJ Jenkins, Jessie Elaban and Xia Brookside defeated Vanessa Craven, Allysin Kay and Reina Gonzalez in six-woman action. Gonzalez and Craven ended up turning on Kay after she inadvertently hit them, leaving her down after a double powerbomb. This allowed Xia to hit a crossbody from the top for the pin. The next dark match saw Candice LeRae and Aerial Monroe defeat Jinny and Killer Kelly. WWE Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander was at ringside with his daughter to cheer wife Monroe on. They embraced after the match.
The first dark match at Thursday’s tapings saw Rachel Evers (Rachael Ellering) defeat Karen Q, as noted earlier. Evers won with a sitout powerbomb after Q missed a Frogsplash from the top.
