David vs. Goliath comes to life as Lacey Lane collides with Vanessa Kraven
It’s hard to imagine Lacey Lane drawing a more daunting opponent in the First Round than “The Mountain” Vanessa Kraven. Simply put, the ill-tempered powerhouse from Montreal is everything that Lane isn’t.
Standing 6-foot-2, Kraven has the obvious reach and strength advantage over the 5-foot-2 Lane. And whereas Lane, a product of The Dudley Boyz’s wrestling school, has competed professionally for less than three years, The Mountain brings more than a decade of ring dominance to the tournament. Yet, for all the size and experience she gives up to the hard-hitting Quebecois, Lane brings a thrilling, daredevil in-ring style that has already earned her an NXT contract.
Can Lane rise to the occasion in her uphill battle against The Mountain, or will Kraven chop down Lane en route to progressing to round two?
