What are your thoughts about your opponent?
I first heard about King Reina when her match against Shayna Braszler was announced. When I look at King Reina I can see that she is a hungry lion! Her style is very aggressive. From size and height, I will be in advantage, but her skills are very good on the ground. This will be a interesting fight!
