You know, you could make the case for the Women’s finals of the Owen Hart Cup be Hikaru Shida vs Serena Deeb and have Hikaru go on top?

Both enter the tournament and not touch till the reach the finals to end this feud once and for all, with Serena, the “professional professional wrestler” losing in the finals of a tournament to one of the best technical wrestler could kick her character to the next gear.
