On Friday October 30th, 2015, from the Agriplex in Cloverdale, British Columbia, Elite Canadian Championship Wrestling held “Halloween Hell” which saw the ongoing feud between former UFC star Shayna Baszler and multi time champion Nicole Matthews reach its peak as the two finally collided in a one on one contest. Baszler was accompanied to the ring by her corner men and fellow Four Horsewoman Jessamyn Duke. It was obvious that Baszler wanted to get in Matthew’s head right from the start as she tried to turn the wrestling match into a mma match as she brought a corner stool and round card person with her.
Even though Baszler was stepping out of her element she put up a tremendous effort against Matthews and had her in serious trouble on several occasions. However, Matthew’s skills, experience and determination started to come to the forefront and she was about to defeat Baszler when the mma star’s corner woman Jessamyn Duke got involved causing enough of a distraction in order to allow Baszler to lock on a devastating submission hold which forced Nicole Matthews to tap out in a shocking upset.
