Team Pretty’s La Rosa Negra faces Team Rock N’ Roll’s Taya Valkyrie
Taya Valkyrie begins the match in control of La Rosa Negra. La Rosa Negra is put down to the mat with a few body slams before Taya Valkyrie locks in a seated bear hug. Taya lands a knee plant to La Rosa Negra’s mid section and the screen goes black. The words on screen read:
During the course of this match, La Rosa Negra suffered serious internal injury at the hands of Taya Valkyrie, causing NWA officials to suspend this Champions Series match. Unfortunately, Taya Valkyrie would choose to ignore NWA officials and continue to assault a prone La Rosa Negra. As a result, Team Pretty received 3 points for a disqualification, and NWA USA GM Tim Storm has suspended Taya Valkyrie until 2023. Due to the severity of La Rosa Negra’s injuries and the resulting actions from Taya Valkyrie, the remainder of this match will not be broadcast.
