Taynara Conti def. Vanessa Borne in a Mae Young Classic 2018 Qualifying Match
With each Superstar believing the final spot in this year’s tournament rightfully belonged to her, Borne and Conti trash-talked each other with fervor. “The Vision” Vanessa wore down the Brazilian black belt with a body scissor, but when she smacked her fellow Mae Young Classic 2017 alumna in the face late in the match, Conti became enraged, asking Borne if she was “crazy” before stomping and chopping Borne to smithereens.
Conti’s judo prowess then took over. She tossed Borne with throws and a belly-to-belly suplex, and reversed Borne’s crucifix pin attempt into a rib-quaking slam to triumph.
With the victory, Conti now looks ahead to this year’s Mae Young Classic, which kicks off on WWE Network on Wednesday, Sept. 5.
