Match-of-the-Day: October 14
Competitors: Yumi Ohka v Serena Deeb
Volume: 44 -- fifth match
Highlight: awesome match with big boots and strong contact matwork. Neither of these women is a high flyer, though there was a superplex from the top. Each woman survived the others finisher at least once, but ultimately Serena hit a spear that could not be denied.
