Your Monday Post #177: Candice LeRae vs Shayna Baszler; Mae Young Classic Quarterfinal Match (September, 4th 2017)

Welcome One and All to a new week of wrestling, and just like last Monday, this Monday presented us new content in the form of the rest of the Mae Young Classic Matches. There are so many high octane, suspenseful matches to select as a favorite, as a great candidate and while my selection was shorter than expected, it was a solid bout between Mrs Gargano aka Candice LeRae and one of four representatives of the UFCs four horsewomen, Shayna Baszler.

Dubbed during the tournament as a dangerous woman by JR, the bully like Shayna made quick work of NXT upstart Zeda in the first round of the tourney, then clearing through a tough competitor in former GFW Knockout Mia Yim in order to obtain placement in the quarterfinals where she met LeRae, whose advancements came through defeating Renee Michelle and Nicole Savoy. The finish came when LeRae performed an insane maneuver from the top rope, only for Shayna to reverse once on the mat into her finishing choke/submission, baring much resemblance to the Asuka Lock. This obtained Shayna another win and a place in the semi finals against Mercedes Martinez, with Shayna cementing her heel status post match by refusing to release LeRae from the finishing choke for a few moments, even trying to kick her in front of the supporting husband, Johnny Gargano.
