Nia Jax has made a habit of squashing local independent talent on Monday Night Raw. This week was no different – except for the fact that her opponent was legitimately a 17-year-old high school student.
Billed as Vanessa Floyd on Raw, Missouri-based independent wrestler Savanna Stone was trained under Mike Elgin and is Zero1 USA’s Women’s Champion; and, according to Twitter user @MidnightGuthrie, she hasn’t even been wrestling a full year yet.
This is incredible. Way to go @SavannaStone01! Not even a full year in wrestling and on #RAW. And….she is legitimately still in high school. Savanna, keep this clip handy for all those classmates that think your lying about wrestling on national TV! https://t.co/FvqtsTGRRV

That’s kind of insane. And I’ll be 100% honest here: when I first saw Stone on Raw, I wrote her off; her gear looked like it was purchased from Old Navy’s athletics department. But when she started taking those monster hits from Jax, Stone impressed me – and she impressed Jax, too.
PS I was impressed with this very young talent that stepped in the ring with me, nervous as can be, but she did such a great job! @SavannaStone01 congrats on your raw debut 😉 pic.twitter.com/b714PtpCCt

Clearly, Stone is doing something right. If she keeps doing it, maybe we’ll see her back in WWE sooner rather than later.
