While the women’s side featured plenty of newer faces in the likes of Chloe Mills, Zahra Kell, and Erika Lang, it was going to be a chore for any of them to overtake two legends and the reigning queen in Dallas Friday, Nicola Butler, and Meagan Ethell. With a strong semifinal performance, Lang was able to head into the finals against the heavy hitters. Friday, in her second contest back after having her second baby, had to uncharacteristic falls and left the door open. Lang put down a solid run, but also had a fall. Butler put it on the line and left it up to the defending champ to beat it. By mixing tech tricks with smooth, stylish grabs, Ethell put down just enough to edge out Butler and hang on to her crown.
