Lyas vs Settaoui

Asae Lyas vs Tarik Settaoui, Wrestling Trophy 3 (Fédération Française de Catch Professionnel)

I'm revisiting the model wrestler in this 2015 match against Settaoui, overdressed and unknown to me until now. The French are too taken with showy acrobatics (as is everybody these days--even I have to admit it's entertaining, just not sexy because not wrestling). I prefer the latter half of the match, when it starts looking more like a fight than Cirque du Soleil. I have to respect the fleetness and energy, though. These smaller, lighter wrestlers use gymnastics to create the same bang the heavyweights make when taking an ordinary bump. The fancy finisher is nice (third GIF below).
