Trash-talking “Queen of Suplexes” Nicole Savoy didn’t have many opportunities to use her preferred method of throws against 6-foot-tall Reina González. The larger González couldn’t match the expertise of the more veteran Savoy, but she controlled the action for most of the match — perhaps due to teachings passed down from her father, former wrestler Ricky “Desperado” González.

Yet, Savoy doesn’t miss a chance to pounce on an opponent when she spots an opening. As González had her racked across her shoulders in a fireman’s carry, Savoy expertly maneuvered into a cross armbreaker and brought her to the mat. It might not have been the suplex she was in search of, but the submission hold did the trick for Savoy. The towering Gonzalez had no choice but to tap out, while Savoy now looks ahead to facing Candice LeRae in the next round.
