Handshake to start things off. Hamada working the knee early on. Hamada with a snapmare and a kick to the back, followed by a bodyslam, then another snapmare/kick combination. Athena gets back on their feet, and they lock in the Greco-Roman knucklelock. Athena gets the better of Hamada there, Hamada responds with a monkey flip, Athena lands on her feet but Hamada hits a superkick to send her down. Now working Athena’s arm, she goes up to the top rope and hits a high armdrag, but Athena counters with an armdrag of her own. Both land fast-paced pin attempts and we have a stand-off.
