WXW Elite 8 (2009) - Part 2
SLAMminLadies.com was on hand in Minneola, Florida, last weekend to witness WXW's Elite 8 tournament for 2009. And what a tournament it was! The event had veterans, newcomers out to make a name for themselves and plenty of upsets.

It looked like Betsy was going to come away with the win when she went for the Vadar Bomb, but Sarona was able to roll out of the way in time. Sarona went to the top (maybe for her father's patented splash?) but Lace ran out while the ref was down and shook the ropes.
