Rachel Evers def. Marti Belle in a First-Round Match
Representing her childhood home of the Dominican Republic, New Yorker Marti Belle battled second-generation competitor Rachel Evers, the daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Paul Ellering, in a back-and-forth match.
Evers displayed her world-class power with a series of moves that culminated with a variation of a powerbomb. The notoriously scrappy Belle fought back with a faceplant, but Evers surprised her with an inside cradle out of nowhere to score the pin and move on to face Abbey Laith in the Second Round.
