Athen vs. Queen Aminata
Athena looks to continue to build momentum in search of a title shot against TBS Champion Jade Cargill. However, she will have to get past Queen Aminata if she wants to get her name in the title picture. Upon debuting at Double or Nothing, Athena had a wave of momentum with her that feels like it may have crashed after a loss to The Baddies’ Jade Cargill and Kiera Hogan at Fyter Fest.
Aminata, however, might be on the hottest run of her career. She’s fresh off a huge win over Masha Slamovich at Terminus 3, and prior to that, she challenged Impact Knockout’s Champion Tasha Steelz for the belt at Battle Slam Fight for ATL. Unfortunately, Aminata did not win the belt, but she was able to take Steelz to a draw, which is very impressive.
Even with Aminata’s momentum, it’s hard to pick against Athena. Both are all-around solid competitors, but Athen does have more success against top-tier talent, but Aminata will make this match closer than most will expect. This will be a can’t-miss night of action, so tune in!
