Renee vs. Kristie Etzold
in a competitive bout.
A tough match from the word go between two tough women. Kristie
has a size and strength advantage and is surprisingly quick
as well. Both of them dish it out and take it with hair pulling,
breast attacks, strong scissors and other grueling submission
holds. Kristie pushed Renee to the limit and I believe Renee
surprised Kristie with her ability etc. as well. This is the
match in which Renee received an injury to her lower back that
put her out of commission for 5 months. Feeling the strain across
her lower back but not knowing how serious it was she continued
on through the end of the match and even had one more sponsored
catfight just a few days later. "Yes, I knew I was injured
at the time but the match had already been sponsored and I met
my obligation to have the match. Had I known though how long
the recovery would be I may have phoned the sponsor and worked
something out as far as postponing the match." was Renee's
response to the question of "WHY?" when she went ahead
with her match after being injured. All that did was aggravate
the injury even more. Maybe not prolonging the recovery time
but surely not doing anything to speed it up.
Very intensely fought.
