For the first time ever, Shine’s champion Santana will go toe-to-toe with Allysin Kay at this weekend’s SHINE 29 and Kay says the champ should expect the unexpected.

The Michigan wrestler joined The Roman Show and says although Santana is the champion, she hasn’t faced someone like her.
“Santana thinks she can go faster because she made herself a cake that’s what I think,” she said. “She’s never been with me ever. I don’t think if anyone realizes it, but Santana and I have never been in the ring, ever not even in a random tag match or some other promotion. She thinks she’s faster but she’s never been in the ring with me.”
Kay will be joined by April Hunter. She added that this day in age its odd for two wrestlers not to come across in the independent scene.
“I am excited about the match,” she said. “She’s done a lot. We’ve been wrestling for about the same time. She’s been to TNA, but I’ve been to japan and she hasn’t. I’ve been to china and she hasn’t. I’ve been to England and am pretty sure she hasn’t.”
Most recently, she traveled to Japan where she pushed the envelope and she plans on bringing her experience inside the SHINE ring against Santana.
“I know that no experience can match up to the experience I had there,” she said. “It was a game changer.”

She plans on bringing the Japanese strong style to the match. She also spoke about training in the Japanese dojos, Europe and more.
