Deonna Purrazzo’s hopeful and predicted three-peat didn’t happen as planned on Saturday night in Woodbury Heights, New Jersey. Instead, things worked out in Karen Q’s favor as she’s the coveted winner of the 2017 Super 8 ChickFight tournament and to boot, she’s the first competitor to release the ECWA Women’s title from Purrazzo’s two-year-long death grip. However, getting to the finishing line wasn’t going to be an easy task for Karen Q, as she fought Santana Garrett to twenty-minute, time-limit draw to end things in the semifinals of the tournament. It was then announced by East Coast Wrestling Association that the finals would be a three-way fight for the trophy and Purrazzo’s championship itself would be at stake.
Saturday’s title change marked the first time the belt had been defended in the tournament’s final. The first two installments of the Super 8 ChickFight featured the finalists fighting over a vacated championship. Tessa Blanchard and Jenny Rose fought over the belt in the finals of the inaugural tournament in 2014 after the title was mysteriously relinquished by Renee Michelle. The championship would be without a holder the following year, as former belt recipient, Blanchard faced off against Purrazzo a month after first colliding at an Excellence Pro event in Sellersville, Pennsylvania. The matchup was a big moment for the competitors and the tournament itself, as two of independent wrestling’s most sought-after women’s grapplers were getting a chance to lay everything on the line and determine who is the better rookie.
Purrazzo’s title wasn’t on the line in last year’s finals when she faced off against Karen Q. The third-annual tournament featured an influx of newer faces to the scene like Britt Baker, Kiera Hogan, Faye Jackson, Maria Manic and Tasha Steelz, while Deonna and Aja Perera were practically the veterans by virtue due to their experience. These women had gained a lot of traction in the months leading up to the tournament and were getting booked almost anywhere that invited women’s wrestling. Your inclusion in the tournament is another good way to sustain the momentum in your bookings, regardless if you’re in demand or not, because like all wrestling gigs this is another chance to advertise your skills to new promoters and fans.
This year’s tournament wasn’t any different. Christina Marie, Skylar and Allie Recks – all three competitors are still relatively unknown. Samantha Heights, who’s been getting a lot of work since bumping around in the Midwest and Kaitlin Diemond, the tenured veteran who’s twelve-years in the business has seen her wrestle all over Canada, Mexico, Germany, Japan and here in the United States. Purrazzo’s lengthy two-years and five day-reign with the ECWA Women’s Championship was ended in her thirteenth title defense after Karen Q forced her to tap out via submission.
Purrazzo’s lengthy two-years and five day-reign with the ECWA Women’s Championship was ended in her thirteenth title defense after Karen Q forced her to tap out via submission. Karen winning the tournament and the title left everyone in shock, as people were probably banking on the finals coming down to Santana Garrett and Purrazzo. However, their feud over in Ring of Honor has been heating up. Karen is currently undefeated in the company and managed to keep her streak alive by besting Purrazzo in Philadelphia the night before the tournament. It appeared that the now-former champion was going to pull off another Super 8 ChickFight win for the third consecutive year in a row after she skated through the quarter and semi-finals, beating Allie Recks and Skylar respectively. Karen’s first title defense as champion has already been announced by the promotion for their November 25th event, as Purrazzo’s rematch clause will be invoked in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Some things that happened over the weekend and this week…
Candy Lee won Impact Pro Wrestling’s inaugural Armageddon Cup on Saturday. She bested Ashlee Spencer and current champion, Britenay in the triple threat final to win. Lee’s win is featured in a piece by Maori Television, which you can check out here. She talks about becoming the first women’s Armageddon Cup winner and in case you were not aware, Candy Lee is the first transgender professional wrestler in New Zealand right now and she further discusses some of the hardships she’s had when it comes to competing against women… Madison Rayne is the new Zero1 USA Women’s Champion after beating Randi West and Thunderkitty in a three-way match on Saturday to win the title. West won the championship a few weeks ago after defeating Thunderkitty and Paloma Starr; prior to this West had stolen Thunderkitty’s trophy which she won after winning the women’s title tourney. The theft prevented Thunderkitty from claiming what was rightfully hers, the women’s title, and West’s actions forced the promotion to book a three-way match, this time the winner would be awarded the championship belt. West’s first title defense was then announced to be taking place inside of a Steel Cage for the promotion’s eleventh-anniversary event on Saturday – Madison Rayne was then added to the match to up the stakes against West. It’s already been announced that West has invoked her rematch clause and will be challenging Rayne for the belt on January 27th in Mattoon, Illinois… Just Plain Evil defeated Frankie Quinn and Tabitha to retain the Hughes Academy Women’s Title on Saturday… Tessa Blanchard is still the WrestleCircus Sideshow Champion after beating Dave Crist on Saturday… Beautiful Beaa unseated KC Spinelli of the Crossfire Wrestling Women’s Title on Saturday in Welland, Ontario. The title loss happened to be Spinelli’s third defense of her 391-day reign…
Mortar became the new Hunter Valley Wrestling Women’s Champion on Saturday after defeating Avary, Tarlee, and Kellyanne for the title in a Fatal Four-Way Ladder match in Rutherford. Tarlee basically had the match won – Avary’s legs were tied up between the ladder’s steps and Kellyanne was knocked out on the outside of the ring. She was making her way up the ladder when another video rolled on the screen, revealing that it was Vixsin, who’s been behind all of these cryptic videos over the last several months. The big reveal distracted Tarlee long enough for Mortar to scale the ladder and eventually chokeslam her from atop the ladder and snatch down women’s title hanging above from the ceiling.
Tarlee confronted Mortar backstage after the match and implied that because they were once allies, she too was involved in Vixsin’s mind games. Mortar denied her involvement in Vixsin’s toying with Tarlee, however, it doesn’t debunk the fact that she took full advantage of the “planned” distraction and won the championship match. Vixsin is set to return to Hunter Valley Wrestling in time for their third-anniversary event on December 9th…
Rosemary became the new AWE Women’s Champion on Friday in Cocoa, Florida, as she defeated Leva Bates to become the inaugural titleholder… Toni Storm fended off Bea Priestley in another successful title defense of the SWA Championship on Saturday in Taiwan. The Taipei City matchup happens to be Storm’s twelfth title defense since winning the belt last July and it was also her first since winning the World of STARDOM Championship, which was also on the line, as requested by Bea Priestley herself. Storm retained both belts with the Strong Zero… Stacy Thibault picked up her third title defense as the PWE Flame Champion on Friday in Oshawa, Ontario, as she retained the belt against Jessie Mack… The LCW Young Guns Title is now in a woman’s possession, as Jayde won the championship on Saturday in Leicester by defeating Chaos Kai Payne, Chase Williams, Fowler, Kyle Kingsley, Tyler Owens and titleholder, Brett Ryans in a Scramble match… Mercedes Martinez dropped one of her many championships on Saturday in Minneola, Florida. She lost the WXW Women’s Title to Raeven Marie in the show’s main event and it appears that the match, which originally involved Jamie D was changed to a singles contest, as there’s no mention of Jamie’s involvement in the title change what so ever. For those not too familiar with Raeven Marie, she’s a second-generation, Puerto Rican grappler and hails from the country’s capital, San Juan. She’s the current New Evolution Wrestling Women’s Champion, a promotion out in Cataño, Puerto Rico. Mercedes’ managed to hang onto the title for over 370-days; her second reign as SHIMMER Champion is currently peaking over 344-days and counting while her third run with the WSU Title hasn’t reached three-hundred days and her ongoing reigns with the SHINE and Femmes Fatales belts hasn’t reached the two-hundred mark… Misaki Ohata successfully retained the Regina di WAVE Championship against Hiroe Nagahama in Sunday’s main event at Shin-Kiba 1st RING and as promised, she’s going to be defending the belt against one of Ice Ribbon’s juniors, Maruko Nagasaki this Sunday.
A bunch of titles changed hands or got awarded to new champions over the weekend…
The vacant MCW Women’s Championship found a new titleholder in Sahara Se7en on Friday night, as she defeated Brittany Blake for the title in Manchester, Maryland. The belt was recently declared vacant after the previous champion, Melina had managed to hold onto the title for 350-days without having to defend the strap but once when she successfully retained it against Blake back in January. Here’s what happened – back on November 5th, Maryland Championship Wrestling had a big idea and decided to pull the title switch on Renee Michelle the same night she had regained the belt for the third time from Blake. Renee had dropped the title to Blake as part of a three-way match that June that also consisted of a former champion, Kimber Lee getting another shot at the strap.
From there, Blake went on to successfully defend the title on three separate occasions, picking up wins over the likes of Marina, Kennadi Brink, Ivory Robyn and once again over Lee. The promotion had announced that her next title defense would be apart of their year-annual “Armageddon” tour within the state and that she would be defending against Renee Michelle in her official return after losing the belt months earlier. The matchup happened and Renee won after using the bottom rope as leverage to score the pinfall on a rolled up Blake. Melina then unseated the new champion in her first title defense; she had won the Queen of Southside Championship from Kay Lee Ray the month before in October via a tournament final and like the Maryland title, that belt too was abandoned after picking up three defenses.
Earlier this year, it appeared that the promotion had lost interest in showcasing the championship on its shows and months after beating Blake in Joppa, Maryland, there was no mention of Melina or an impending title defense. Now that the belt’s in Sahara’s hands, there’s a chance for the promotion to regain traction for the championship and have frequent defenses on the shows. In April of last year, the promotion underwent some rebranding and changed its name to “MCW Pro” Wrestling. Sahara’s win over Blake came packaged with a little help from Dante Caballero, as he distracted the referee long enough for the new champion to grab a handful of Blake’s tights for the roll up. If Brittany Blake had won the matchup on Saturday, she would have been a two-time MCW Women’s Champion, whereas this Sahara’s first run with the title.
One promotion upstate has finally crowned a new titleholder to their vacant Women’s belt after more than a year of inactivity.
LuFisto is now a double champion and leads one women’s division of a promotion and is the top dog in another. She and three other competitors were in-house for Jersey All-Pro Wrestling’s “Uprising” event at the Rahway Recreation Center in New Jersey on Saturday night. The promotion was set to determine a new women’s champion after the previous winner, Kimber Lee had relinquished the title after getting signed by WWE. Despite the promotion’s twenty-years in the business, the JAPW Women’s Title is not that old and wasn’t established until 2009 when Sara Del Rey defeated ODB for the belt in Jersey City.
Beginning in January of 2009, the promotion ran their first all women’s show in Bayonne, called “Female Revolution.” The show featured several of wrestling’s cream of the crop when it came to women athletes, as Cheerleader Melissa, Portia Perez, Nikki Roxx, “The Portuguese Princess” Ariel, Daizee Haze, Sassy Stephie, Jennifer Blake, Mary Lee Rose, who was known then as “Mary Lollypop,” Annie Social, Roxie Cotton and LuFisto were all brought in for the occasion. ODB worked the show’s main event against LuFisto in a Last Woman Standing match and picked up the win. Four months later the promotion would run another women’s event as part of a doubleheader in Rahway. This time the likes of Awesome Kong, Amber (not to be confused with O’Neal) and Brittany Savage helped fill out the card that already included Roxx, Cheerleader Melissa pulling double duty again, Social, Haze, Cotton and Del Rey.
Del Rey defeated Kong on this show and won the number one contender’s battle royal to conclude things that afternoon. However, the championship was still not established at the time. The promotion pitted both competitors, ODB and Del Rey against one another at the following month’s show, “Caged Destiny” where the inaugural SHIMMER Champion defeated her opponent in the second match on the card. Del Rey continued to reign supreme in the Jersey promotion after repeatedly knocking down competitors and their unsuccessful attempts at winning her championship. The likes of Hailey Hatred, Sumie Sakai, Mia Yim and Ayumi Kurihara have all challenged Del Rey for the strap and instead, ended up being apart of her collection plate of title defenses, fourteen to be exact, over her 1, 114-days as champion.
However, some things can not last forever and Del Rey’s title run would have to come to an end once she inked a deal with WWE to be a trainer at the Performance Center. She would eventually relinquish the championship three years after capturing it, with her last title defense coming against LuFisto in December of 2010. Earlier this year, the strap was declared vacant once Kimber Lee had reported to developmental. The championship was shelved for four years following Del Rey’s departure from the indies and in April of last year, the promotion crowned a new titleholder in Kimber Lee, who defeated Annie Social in the one-off decision match in Bayonne, New Jersey. For whatever reason, Lee never got to defend the championship and its likely due to her personal calendar being stocked full of bookings at the time or the fact that the promotion didn’t run another show until October and November of that year when she had already been rumored to be picked up by the WWE.
Lee’s matchup against Social marked the last time the belt had been acknowledged; the promotion began announcing their plans to crown a new champion at Saturday’s show in Rahway, New Jersey. LuFisto being in the running for the title made perfect sense, in that she was the last person to ever contend for the championship. Jersey All-Pro did hold additional standalone shows for the women, with their last one happening in January of 2010. Looking back through some of those cards, with the exception of LuFisto, Mia Yim and Social, Cheerleader Melissa, Angel Dust, Sumie Sakai and Ayako Hamada are the only ones left as active performers today, while much of the show’s roster has retired from the business or stopped taking bookings at some point or another.
Along with LuFisto were three additional competitors announced for the title opportunity. Fresh off a tour of Japan with World Wonder Ring STARDOM is Gabby Ortiz, Katred, a competitor out of the Northeast and Penelope Ford, who’s competed for Beyond Wrestling and it’s sister promotion, Women’s Wrestling Revolution and is a regular in Women Superstars Uncensored. LuFisto won the matchup and was crowned the third JAPW Women’s Champion, however, her win came with a small price. Shlak and Bear Bronson corned her post-match and before long, Kyle the Beast made the save. Though I’m not sure of the significance of this occurring, the promotion has announced a Street Fight for their February 24th show as a result of LuFisto coming to the aid of Kyle the Beast after his matchup against Matt Riddle. She was laid out after taking a devastating spear from Bronson.
Some things that happened at SHINE 46…
Mercedes Martinez and Ivelisse retained their tag team titles against Holidead and Thunder Rosa to close the show. The match was a wild brawl and the referee could not control either team, however, it’s sort of strange that the promotion to choose for their title defense to cap off SHINE 46 instead of LuFisto’s matchup against Kraven that ended with a screwy finish. Dementia D’Rose interfered in the matchup and targeted the legs of Kraven, which in turn, helped LuFisto pull off the submission win via leglock to retain the SHINE Championship. Dementia continued to work over Kraven’s legs after the match, damaging them even further with a steel chair shot. Kraven sold the beating and was helped to the backstage area by several referees.
The biggest development coming out of SHINE 46 is Dementia D’Rose’s love affair with swinging steel chairs. She wrestled Sienna in the opening match on the card; Brandi Lauren had teased that she had a “surprise” for the Impact Knockouts Champion and after cutting a blistering promo on Lauren, Sienna was ambushed from behind by D’Rose and an impromptu matchup proceeded. D’Rose was then disqualified by the referee for attempting to use the steel chair inside the ring, however, that didn’t stop her from unloading on Sienna after the match. Like Kraven, multiple referees had to intervene and stop D’Rose’s vicious attack on Sienna – it appears that SHINE is looking to create new villains in an already heel-driven promotion and D’Rose getting a singles niche and not being forced into some makeshift team or stable is an upside.
Priscilla Kelly retained the NOVA Championship against Santana Garrett after Garrett missed the Shining Star Press and the titleholder capitalized with a small package. Kelly was briefly attacked by Candy Cartwright, Aria Blake and Kiera Hogan after the match before Aja Perera, Jordynne Grace and Aerial Monroe made the save. Perera and Monroe had scored the upset win over The Cutie Pie Club in the matchup prior to Kelly’s title defense after Perera was able to hit the Super Driver on Hogan. Cartwright placed the blame on Blake for the loss, causing further dissension amongst the stable to grow. Grace picked up the submission win over Cartwright in a very short match with a bearhug. Aria Blake parodied Grace by coming to the ring with a body suit all stuffed to mimic the stature of the 21-year-old. Priscilla Kelly suffered another attack just seconds after Cartwright and company’s ambush; this time it was Amanda Carolina Rodriguez pitching for a shot at Kelly’s championship. Besides suffering a loss to Leah Vaughan in the title tournament, Rodriguez is now on an undefeated streak in SHINE Wrestling after beating La Rosa Negra in an Anything Goes match and besting Natalia Markova on the show.
A new women’s promotion is currently being developed in the Northeast region. Capital Wrestling Alliance has been busy making announcements concerning their official debut show, which takes place on January 27th in Frankford, Delaware. The promotion has announced that they will be crowning two champions on the first show, which is a pretty overwhelming idea, to begin with – this really could have been held off until future dates. They will be holding a tournament, the Raven Black tournament to decide the inaugural CWA Champion and so far, only eleven participants have been named for the twelve-woman tourney: Santana Garrett, Candy Cartwright, Deonna Purrazzo, Lacey Lane, Davienne, Kylie Rae, Angelus Layne, Nikki Addams, Thunder Rosa, Tess Valentine and Jordynne Grace.
The CWA Mid-Atlantic Champion will be decided through a battle royal and that has a bunch of names announced too, including some newer alias working around and outside the region like Jayel Cotto, Debbie Kane and Hannah Hartkopf. Layne Rosario, the former “Cherry Layne,” Hyan, Maria James and “Hot Scoop” Skylar are some of the other competitors announced for the battle royal, which doesn’t appear to have a set quantity as of right now. Delmi Exo and her sister, Ashley Vox will be in tag team action on the show; they’ll be taking on Gabby Ortiz and Riley Shepard. That’s pretty much all that’s been announced for CWA’s launch at the Frankford Fire Company besides more participants getting named for the battle royal in the coming weeks. The promotion has stated that the twelfth entrant into the championship tournament will be announced the day of the show – talk about anticipation here.
I’m going to go out on a limb here and be honest with my thoughts and state that I feel hesitant about lending my full support towards this promotion, or any promotion for that matter these days. In recent months, I’ve seen several promotions announce a launch date, flood everyone’s timelines with announcements of big, top named talents being on the show and then we find out in the ninetieth-hour that the promoters weren’t reliant and things were a complete clusterfuck from the get-go. I had planned on discussing a hot mess of a situation that occurred right before my year-long hiatus. It involved another women’s promotion that had popped up not once, but twice and jetted out into the mysterious beyond overnight after announcing matches among other things. However, I remained on the fence on whether or not to talk about it and make it public knowledge about what had transpired.
Once upon a time…
I was doing my due diligence to covering women’s wrestling and came across a flyer for a new women’s promotion, forming out in California. I was already familiar with several names competing within the west coast region, but seeing that a full-on promotion was being created and dedicated to the women that worked there for years and didn’t receive the same exposure as some of their peers like Cheerleader Melissa, I was excited and decided to shoot them a message. I was inquiring for further information on the debut show, which was scheduled for May 15th. I wanted to know if the inaugural champion would be crowned on the show or if the title tournament would be an ongoing thing and continue on through the next set of shows.
I was told through a message on Facebook that the champion was going to be decided the same day as the launch and was thanked for my interest in wanting to “spread the word” about the new women’s promotion on the block. I’m confident that everyone reading this is over the suspense and just wants me to call names at this point, so here it goes. I sent this message quoted below to Radiance Pro Wrestling on the morning of February 20, 2015.
I cover women’s wrestling for Pro Wrestling Ponderings. Every week I compile an article, covering all the latest news in women’s wrestling in North America, Mexico, Europe, Japan, Australia and everything in between. I’m not sure you’re familiar with the website Ringbellesonline, I was a writer for the site until its closure this year. The Ringbelles Roundup is posted weekly, I understand your promotion will be debuting on May 15th. I wanted to know if the first Radiance Champion will be crowned on the show, or if the tournament will continue onto the next shows? I just wanted to make sure I had the correct information before reporting.”
I followed through with another message, stating that my written piece could be an avenue to help spread announcements about upcoming shows and even mentioned that an interview with Pro Wrestling Ponderings was another good way to get the news out faster. I received nothing back. No response. No further details on the show, nada Pam. I’ve experienced this several times from promotions, especially those that have sought me out first, wanting an interview or wanting news items to be reported. I do it and I never take the inquiries that turn out to be a bust personal. I’ve experienced the same with wrestlers and regardless of my disappoint, the work and dedication that’s put into this article every other week remain way more important than people being sheisty.
“We don’t take L’s over here”
Radiance Pro’s initial flier posted to their Facebook page had caught my attention because it had an outdated picture of Cherry Bomb, who we all know as “Allie” these days. Now that’s a minor issue and definitely sounds bratty, but it’s annoying to see promotions still advertise a wrestler that has clearly evolved from their rookie year in the business and has updated photos of their current look still get printed onto a match card as the “greenhorn” and not as the finished product, alas a veteran. It has always amazed me when I see promotions still advertise the 2010 version of Jessicka Havok on current fliers and not grab a current snippet of her. I guess cropping the first image found on a Google search is easier to do in photoshop than the actual time-consuming activity of asking a wrestler for a current shot of them.
I said the image was outdated because during this time, she was no longer a dark brunette and according to hearsay, Cherry Bomb wasn’t aware that her likeness was being used for this promotion. Let’s insert a few more outdated pictures of LuFisto, Terra Calaway, but have an up to date one of Candice LeRae – the consistency is very appreciated. Shortly after posting even more outdated graphics and dropping a few names, the promotion vanished. The scheduled date for their first event came and went without any updates on whether the show got canceled or was being pushed back. To make matters worse, they weren’t responding to fans and their requests for information on where they are located, ticket sales, etc. Straight up nothing. That June, they decided to make their first post on Facebook after a whole month of silence – they had the actual nerve to link footage of Candice LeRae taking on Nicole Savoy in a one-on-one contest and refer to these women as “their” athletes when there’s no God-fearing proof of that being the truth. Their final post was a link to their official Twitter handle, which was super busy trying to get traction for the promotion. Whether it was begging for followers or dropping announcements about the debut show that wound up not happening, the whole thing gave me bad vibes. They initially offered a package deal where fans would receive access to the live stream of the show, a limited edition DVD, a signed poster and on top of that, shipping and handling were going to be free.
Sounds great right?
Their tweeting activity mirrored their behavior on Facebook and that, they completely glossed over the fact they missed their launch date. No mention of anything besides wanting more followers and retweeting those that jumped on the bandwagon and wanted to lend their support. Kacee Carlisle and Nicole Savoy’s names were soon added to the imaginary lineup and again, they dropped out of sight. A whole year later, exactly in May, they reappeared and started making announcements about… you guessed it, their first event, this time scheduled for July 30th in Oroville, California. Taeler Hendrix was now being promoted as the main attraction for the show and as a result of acquiring Hendrix, they began offering signed DVDs to those fans that pre-ordered their tickets in advance. Oh, I forgot to mention that ticket sales were reportedly “going fast” because now there would be limited seating at the show and they could only be purchased online – seventy-five tickets for seventy-five people.
It looked like they were about some serious business this time around. They announced longtime competitor and veteran of the California scene, Raze, Samara and Ashley Grace for the show, following through with an official match card and adding Kevin Gill to their commentary team. Brittany Wonder, Holidead, Laura James and more women continued to be announced for the July 30th date and it was around this time that I decided to once again, shoot this promotion another message and ask for an interview. I inquired again about their availability in the oncoming weeks and regardless if this was going to be a pre-taped interview or not, we have to set a day, a time and have someone ready on standby to handle the technical side of things while I conduct the interview. I have never asked someone for an interview and they are readily available for it right then and there, like ever.
It’s one thing if everyone is prepared to do it on the spot, but the fact I was willing to give the person behind the social accounts an clear opportunity to promote their business and they were so jumpy about doing it “now” and once I followed through with wanting to schedule something and what not, they decided not to respond to any of my messages. Again, this has happened at least a thousand times before with promotions, wrestlers and you name it, but that wasn’t the problem here. The problem was that this promotion was so hellbent on wanting people to direct message them and ask about interviews and details on the show, but they were refusing to properly do that in exchange for that publicity they were craving.
You can not have it both ways.
I consulted with the staff at Pro Wrestling Ponderings about my ordeal and from there I decided to not bother going forward with an interview with anyone from the promotion. In the days following, they had been promoting that they were going to launch their own Patreon campaign – I believe this idea was going to be a way to fund their shows, that already had limited seating and tickets were according to them, “selling fast.” On top of this, they were proclaiming that they were going to launch the “only” women’s promotion that ran shows monthly in the United States, which was a false claim when SHINE Wrestling was providing that coverage at the time. Women Superstars Uncensored has scaled back on the number of shows they run a year, sometimes running four shows or less. SHINE has also followed this method in addition to not properly advertising their shows, which has been everyone’s biggest gripe since it’s launch in 2012. However, it’s not a bad idea to run fewer shows when there are so many products and avenues to find them these days. It felt like Radiance Pro and its promoter was trying to step on toes with that line when in actuality, they were digging themselves a bigger grave.
On June 28, 2016, I received a message from a fan wanting to know if my tweet regarding a promotion in California being sketchy was in reference to Radiance Pro. I was completely talking about another promotion at the time, but if the shoe fits, wear them. I will simply refer to this person as “Derek” and not directly give out their Twitter handle. Derek stated that he was going to their debut show on July 30th, but mostly because he had pre-ordered tickets last year and never received them. He was told by the promotion that his tickets would be mailed to him on June 3rd and he never received them. A whole month had passed and I received nothing back from Radiance Pro regarding an interview and Derek, now July 18th still had not received his tickets or anything in reference to them. I had become privy to information that some competitors had backed out of appearing at the show due to the company’s refusal to hold up their end of the bargain.
Brittany Wonder, Hudson Envy and more had been snatched up by the other promotions that were running in California around the time Radiance was running their show. Wonder along with Holidead had reportedly signed on to be apart of Radiance’s lineup that day or agreed to be members of their roster according to the promotion. Radiance had only announced three matches for their entire card that was a little more than a week away; Samara was scheduled to take on Sage Sin and Beatrice Domino was slated to take on Laura James. They didn’t bother with announcing additional matches for the show and instead, claimed on July 20, 2016, that there had been a “few” changes to the card and promised to keep fans updated on these modifications, but they didn’t.
In the days leading up to these “changes” they were busy plugging this DVD deal where shipping and handling were free, it was going to have Taeler Hendrix’s signature on it and it was only twenty-five dollars. They wanted fans to pre-order a product that had not been made and appeared to be a figment of everyone’s imagination. Radiance tried to up the ante on this scam by claiming that fans that pre-ordered the first show’s DVD would receive a “producer” credit for doing so – when I tell you they were shoving this DVD down people’s throats, I damned near wanted to go blind and begged for the site to crash.
Two days later, I had received even more information on the ongoing saga of Radiance’s woes while they were busy whining about being locked out of their account, while still tweeting. I was told that while the promotion had announced the city where the event was going to be held, they didn’t give an exact location of the venue besides its street. Whenever I go looking up information for upcoming shows, including the show’s date, location, and its venue are the most important things to have included on your fliers, tickets, website, etc if you want fans to actually show up. I was then told that the person solely responsible for Radiance Pro was also running Fighting Spirit Pro, which immediately threw me off because they had been running shows for charity. To my recollection, both promotions were set to run shows that weekend and three days later, both events were canceled, deleted off Facebook and I forgot to mention, that talent was not forewarned of this happening until it appeared on social media.
thanks for letting us know…..
— Sage Sin (@sage_sin) July 25, 2016
Taeler Hendrix dropped out of appearing after being heavily promoted as the main attraction for the DVD sales and cited that “company issues” were the sole reason for her backing out. The promotion claimed that a “new date” would be announced ahead of the rescheduled event, however, that never happened as no one has heard a peep about or from Radiance Pro Wrestling since July 25, 2016. “Derek” never received his tickets and two weeks after the cancellations, Fighting Spirit Pro was embroiled in a DVD scandal, as a fan had pre-ordered a signed copy that was offered to him by the promotion and never received it. The plaintiff claimed that they had been waiting over ninety-days for their DVD to arrive – several other fans stated that they too were looking for their purchases and never got them. Some fans were charged more than others for the fictitious discs and got completely scammed by this promotion and its craftiness. I don’t like jumping to conclusions, but the rolling out of announcements by Capital Wrestling Alliance and the amount of people they are adding to this event feels too good to be true. It also leaves you wondering if this thing is happening for real or if this another instance of someone doing all of this for attention. Only time will tell if this promotion is the actual truth or a sham like Radiance, then again this can be said for almost everyone.

Pro Wrestling Chaos crowns it’s first “Maiden of Chaos” this Saturday in Hanham, Bristol, England. The tournament was originally announced months ago, sometime in August, with no indication on whether the winner would receive a title or be awarded a championship upon victory. I reached out to the promotion for clarification earlier and the winner will receive a title that will be defended going forward. The last time I had discussed the impending tournament, only three participants had been named, including Viper, who was then enjoying an ongoing tour with STARDOM at the time that saw her switch sides and joins the promotion’s biggest star and becomes apart of her stable, Queen’s Quest.
Jinny and Martina were also announced and in the coming weeks, the promotion had added Jetta, Sierra Loxton, Dahlia Black, Jamie Hayter and Ayesha Raymond to the tournament, turning it into an eight-woman affair for the championship. The official brackets have been released and it will be Viper going up against Jinny in the first round and Loxton will be taking on the “Amazon.” Dahlia Black and Jamie Hayter will again meet face-to-face just three weeks after wrestling in a qualifying matchup for Pro Wrestling: EVE’s SHE-1 tournament, which wound up going in Hayter’s favor. Jetta will take on Martina and like the aforementioned, their last matchup occurred at an EVE show back in February and was their first-ever encounter.
The quarter and semi-finals of the tournament will be held on a standalone show for the women in the afternoon as part of the “Coalition of Chaos” double feature at the Hanham Community Centre. Unless there’s a reason for a third competitor to get involved, the two finalists will go on to fight for the title on the evening show, with the winner walking away with this belt pictured to the right. It’s not the most aesthetically pleasing thing to look at, though I do appreciate the effort put into the actual “Maiden of Chaos” logo – listen when your best friend is a graphic designer and you’re a self-taught artist, your perception of things can be heavily critique driven and appreciative of the smallest things at the same time.
It’s the hardest thing to explain to people, let alone I question my own judgment sometimes when it comes to things such as this. Could way more effort be put into the construction of the women’s title? Of course. There’s no proper excuse that can be given besides explaining that it was a “huge” expense that the promotion could not handle and because they were so hellbent on going forward with this, they had to cut corners. It’s annoying that I had to simplify the possible reason to “that” and not be able to argue that this random championship belt that is probably a purchased replica and is wrapped in the most-fuschia piece of cloth you could find in your local Jo-Ann Fabrics is decent enough and presentable enough to be a championship worth taking seriously.
I cannot sit here and lie and create a wall of bias that doesn’t exist because I’m an avid follower of women’s wrestling and the women in this tournament. I cannot sit here and justify my disappoint in the end result of the title’s look as nitpicking when it’s clear that the promotion had time in advance to finesse the belt’s appearance and possibly get it made in time for the tournament. Then again, it could have been one of those instances where the initial plan for the tournament was to hand the winner a trophy and someone popped in the creative meeting and said, “We need a belt!” and that’s how things got rolling. However, that doesn’t negate the fact that one woman will be wearing this championship and regardless of who wins it and the impact of their reign as the first titleholder, the belt’s shortcomings in the looks department is always going to be the first thing pointed out by fans. There’s going to be people that consider my criticism as overly harsh and chalk it up to being an unwarranted attack all because of my work as a women’s wrestling columnist, because clearly I need another reason to be “angry” and drive home the agenda of the injustices of women in this sport when it’s so damn apparent.
The point is that this belt could have been thought out better and while I’m aware that there’s plenty of promotions around that possess makeshift belts made out of cardboard, brought WWE replicas and used them as their championships, there is nothing wrong with wanting better for the wrestlers that have to carry these titles. Fans have already reacted negatively to the belt’s appearance via their Facebook page and while the promotion has apologized for the outcome, it’s still disappointing to see this happen. Here’s to hoping that Pro Wrestling Chaos has learned something from this and other promotions alike are thinking about taking the cheap route to establishing a new champion.
