Raptors Eliminated, Capitals Finish Penguins and MMA's "Four Horsewomen" Reunited in WWE
The Toronto Raptors found themselves defeated again by the Cleveland Cavaliers yesterday, losing 128-93. A piece in ESPN summed up the impact it may have on the Raptors:
"For the Raptors, it was a horrific end to a season in which they won 59 games and earned the No. 1 seed. The swagger from their bench and cohesion of stars Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan eroded by the game. The Cavs stole Game 1, they crushed the Raptors in Game 2, James broke their spirits in Game 3, and it was an embarrassment in Game 4."
The Nashville Predators shut out the Winnipeg Jets 4-0 last night forcing a seventh game in the series. The winner of Thursday's game in Nashville will go on to face the Vegas Golden Knights. The Washington Capitals eliminated the Pittsburgh Penguins yesterday and will go on to face the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Conference Finals.
WWE (NYSE:WWE) announced yesterday that all of the MMA's Four Horsewomen have now made the move "from mixed martial arts to sports-entertainment". Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir join Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler:
The WWE Universe no doubt remembers the Four Horsewomen's standoff with Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch and Bayley - three-quarters of WWE's Four Horsewomen, alongside Sasha Banks - at last year's Mae Young Classic. Duke, Shafir and Rousey were there to support Baszler, who advanced to the final round of the inaugural tournament before losing to Kairi Sane. Though the Four Horsewomen factions did not come to blows at the Mae Young Classic, the exchange of words made for a stirring scene.
Since then, Baszler and Rousey's impact in the squared circle been nothing less than immense: The Queen of Spades forcefully claimed the NXT Women's Title from Ember Moon at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans, while "Rowdy" Ronda has emerged as one of Raw's top Superstars following a spectacular in-ring debut at WrestleMania, where she teamed with Kurt Angle to defeat Triple H & Stephanie McMahon.
