As the saying goes, “There can only be one” and Pro Wrestling: EVE determined that one specific competitor that is their true “ace” during their two-shows a day extravaganza this past weekend in London.
Charlie Morgan withstood the harmonious kicks of Meiko Satomura to earn a right to challenge Sammii Jayne, whom she also defeated in this matchup, for a shot at the EVE Championship this coming May. Morgan finished out the tournament and stood victorious with five points after toppling over the likes of Nina Samuels and Nicole Matthews with an Implant DDT. She knocked Samuels out of the running on the third show via pinfall and ended her chances of ever being in title contention. Samuels’ elimination was a receipt for costing Charlie and Kay Lee Ray their matchup of Block A to be ended in a double disqualification after she attacked both competitors. Charlie’s defeat and subsequent dismissal of Samuels from the tournament allotted her the additional two points she needed to win her respective block and qualify for the finals of the SHE-1.
Sammii Jayne, Jamie Hayter, and Laura Di Matteo were locked in a tie after all-three competitors had racked up four points each while working that Sunday afternoon’s card. It was quickly announced that there would be a triple threat match held that night as part of the finale of the SHE-1 to determine the true winner of Block C and the third finalist of the tournament. Meiko Satomura defeated Emi Sakura via pinfall to win Block B and is the only competitor to successfully oust all of her opponents, not suffer any losses or be forced to split a point a piece with another competitor through a draw – then again it is Meiko Satomura for heaven’s sake and she defeated Jetta in under thirty-two seconds in the opener of Block B.
Charlie Morgan pulled out all the stops when it came to nudging closer to becoming the inaugural SHE-1. Sammii Jayne’s best attempt at making the finals a singles affair between she and Satomura came when she ambushed Charlie and put her through a table. She was then carried out of The Resistance Gallery – Morgan eventually made her return like a true babyface that couldn’t be outdone by even some of the worst tactics and won the whole thang and booked her ticket to York Hall where she meets Jayne for her championship match. Pro Wrestling: EVE began announcing their plans to run the tournament a few months back and stated that the winner of the SHE-1 would receive a title shot and headline their first show inside the historic building. York Hall has housed several events for Revolution Pro out in the United Kingdom, Ring of Honor, WWE amongst other promotions after previously being known as a venue for boxing. Another match that’s been officially announced for the show on May 5, 2018, is the colossal meeting between Viper and Aja Kong. Unless Kong is booked elsewhere in Europe before the matchup, this will be Kong’s first time ever wrestling on the continent. While this revelation is quite unbelievable for some people, especially given Kong’s three-decade-long career, it’s practically normal for women of her prestige in Japan to maintain a tenured run in the country not benefit from international exposure.
The semi-finals and the subsequent finals of the Regina di WAVE number one contender’s tournament was determined last Wednesday in Tokyo, as Nagisa Nozaki will be the one going onto face Misaki Ohata for the title at WAVE’s show at Korakuen Hall on Sunday. The tournament’s first round matches took place at the promotion’s shows this past Saturday and Sunday, as ASUKA bested SAKI following a Moonsault Press and Mio Momono defeated Hiroe Nagahama with the JK Bomb. Former champion Rina Yamashita and Nozaki also advanced in their matchups by defeating Satsuki Totoro and Miyuki Takase respectively. Yamashita and Nozaki squared off in the semifinals on the same show as Momono and ASUKA’s collision. The eventual winner and Momono then moved to the finals where Nozaki won in the main event via referee stoppage after having Momono trapped in the sleeper hold.
Since returning to wrestling after a four-year hiatus, Nozaki has gained a bit of a hot streak in WAVE, even getting the pinfall victory over former champion, Ryo Mizunami last month. Nagisa Nozaki has actually been wrestling for a long while and began her career back in 2006 at the age of fifteen after being trained under the guidance of Etsuko Mito. Her first set of matches happened under the now-defunct, NEO Ladies umbrella and her rookie year was spent taking the pinfall to the promotion’s veterans like Yuki Miyazaki. She eventually began appearing for other promotions after NEO’s closure and found a new home in Ice Ribbon and suffered a string of injuries before reaching her eighteenth birthday. Nozaki’s tiny frame had piled on the injuries in 2009, as she not only fractured her orbital floor but also separated her shoulder that September during a matchup against Hiroyo Matsumoto and Kyoko Inoue – this matchup was supposed to Nozaki’s return to the ring following the eye injury that occurred back in June.
Nozaki’s latest trauma forced her to be pulled from Etsuko Mita’s official retirement match and the spot was handed to Makoto, who sights Mita as her biggest inspiration to get into wrestling. Nozaki then spent thirteen-months on the shelf recovering from shoulder surgery before jumping back into the ring the following July, where she wrestled Syuri in her first match back for NEO. She would be back on the sidelines six days later, as her second match against Nanae Takahashi ended prematurely when Takahashi reportedly dislocated her right shoulder. Despite all of this, she continued to work and eventually wound up jumping to Tajiri’s SMASH promotion. With the closure of NEO Ladies taking place towards the end of 2010, now a freelancer, Nozaki knocked off Yumi Ohka in the opening round of the 2011 Catch the WAVE tournament and went on to pick up a win over Mio Shirai before racking up the losses to Misaki Ohata and Ayumi Kurihara. She was then publicly fired by Kyoko Inoue for no-showing an event for DIANA, with Inoue citing that Nozaki had breached her contract. Nozaki’s response to the incident was an issued apology to Inoue and a revelation that she had considered retirement due to the public embarrassment and needing additional surgery on her shoulder, which took place in February of 2012.
She showed up at a Wrestling New Classic show that August and attacked Makoto with a shinai and aligned herself with Hajime Ohara in her official debut for SMASH’s successor. For the first time in her career, Nozaki was performing as a heel and received a “bye” into the semifinals of the Women’s Championship tournament along with Finnish wrestler, Jessica Love. Nozaki’s last-minute inclusion turned out to work in her favor, as she secured the upset win over the promotion’s biggest star, Kana following interference from her Kabushiki gaisha DQN stablemate, Jiro Kuroshio. It appeared to be a motivated suggestion to have Nozaki one-up the veteran and former champion in order to oust her from the promotion officially. However, Kana had beaten them to the punch and moments after match cited that she was “quitting” due to not being compensated for months and being unable to get into contact with its president, Tsutomu Takashima to discuss the matter.
Nozaki’s bad fortunes appeared to have struck again before the tournament finals when she feigned having a broken leg that she claimed was a result of falling over drunk. The injury turned out to be a ruse, as she used it to her advantage to get the upper hand on her opponent, Syuri during the match, which resulted in her first official loss in Wrestling New Classic. Before January’s end in 2013, Nozaki would again be sidelined with an orbital floor fracture and this time, she would sit out of active competition until August of this year. She made her return at WAVE’s tenth-anniversary event alongside Aoi Kizuki and together they were defeated by Mika Iida and former rival, Yuki Miyazaki. It was announced that Nozaki had officially signed on with WAVE’s parent company, Zabun on September 14th and as a result, she’s become an active member of the promotion’s roster and could be on the verge to become its next prodigy through a career resurgence. Its been talked about before in previous articles that it appears that WAVE is pushing a new initiative to promote their younger roster instead of turning to Yumi Ohka or additional veterans on the card to carry the shows going forward. Aside from Ohka, Miyazaki, and Ayako Hamada, the majority of the roster is under the age of thirty-five and employs more rookies and up and coming talent than anything these days.
Nagisa Nozaki’s bumpy road to championship gold is finally happening, as her right to challenge Misaki for the belt on Sunday happens to be her first-ever direct attempt at going after a title. Her continuous bouts with injuries have left her out of title contention for years – Ohata is currently two title defenses into her premature reign with the Regina di WAVE belt, picking up wins over Hiroe Nagahama and Maruko Nagasaki. Yumi Ohka picked up a win over the current tag team champions on Wednesday’s show and has issued a challenge to Takumi Iroha and Rin Kadokura for the titles and has selected semifinalist Mio Momono to be her partner. Otherwise known as “New-Tra,” Kadokura and Iroha won the championships in the finals of the 2017 Dual Shock WAVE tournament back in September when they bested Hiroe Nagahama and Kaho Kobayashi. The title matchup, which has been added to Sunday’s lineup will be the team’s first defense since becoming champions, whereas this will be Ohka’s third stint with the belts if she and Momono happen to win. Another matchup announced for Sunday’s show is hardcore tag team match between Ayako Hamada and Yuki Miyazaki going up against Ryo Mizunami and Rina Yamashita.
Some things that happened over the weekend and this week…
Allie Recks was crowned the inaugural Pennsylvania Premiere Wrestling Women’s Champion on Saturday when she defeated four other women, Nyla Rose, Sammi Pandora and Riley Krowe in Hazelton to win the gold… DASH Chisako and KAORU picked up their first title defense of the SENDAI Girls Tag Team straps on Friday as they retained against the tandem of Heidi Katrina and Cassandra Miyagi. The title match closed out the promotion’s latest show at Korakuen Hall; Mika Shirahime and Alex Lee have announced themselves as the next competitors in line for a shot at the belts and the matchup was added to the December 2nd card. Meiko Satomura scored a direct win over the current champion, Chihiro Hashimoto and before she could issue for a rematch for the title, Ayako Hamada suggested that Satomura fight her to determine Hashimoto’s next opponent. No official date has been confirmed for that match and it’s likely to be apart of the December 2nd lineup. However, whoever does come out of the SENDAI Girls World Championship match with the belt, will have Aja Kong waiting in the balance, as she too wants a shot… Nikki Addams made her eighth defense of the WOW Women’s Championship this past Saturday in New York City, as she retained the belt against Davienne… The twelfth annual Lone Star Classic was presented by Anarchy Championship Wrestling on Sunday in Austin. The year’s tournament witnessed Su Yung, former two-time American Joshi Champion making it to the semi-finals where she lost to Barrett Brown after toppling Angel Blue and Steve O Reno in the first round… Ivory Robyn’s first title defense as the IHWE Queen Of the Ring Championship took place in the main event of this past Sunday’s show in Fort Worth, Texas, as she retained the strap against Angelus Layne… Jaylee picked up another successful defense of the OVW Women’s Title this previous Saturday, as she defeated Jessie Belle… Delmi Exo is the new number one contender to the Chaotic Women’s Championship as determined on Friday night in Woburn, Massachusetts. She defeated Alisha Edwards and Davienne and as a result, she’ll go on to face her sister, Ashley Vox for the title sometime down the line… Lacey Lane replaced Diosa Quetzal in Keyra’s title defense this past Saturday in Tijuana. Keyra successfully retained the Crash Femenil Championship against Lane, Christi Jaynes, and Baronessa to pick up her second title retainment… Lady Jasmine retained the Great North Women’s Title against Ailani Iolana this past Sunday in Rockland, IL… Rosemary fended off Amber Nova and Mia Yim in her first successful defense of the AWE Women’s Title on Friday in Melbourne, Florida… Brooke Valentine became the new Impact Pro Wrestling Women’s Champion this past Saturday when she defeated Frankie Jay for the title… Reika Saiki made her second successful title defense of the TOKYO Princess of Princess Championship this past Friday, as she defeated Rika Tatsumi to retain…
Io Shirai is the new Wonder of STARDOM Champion after unseating Yoko Bito in her third title defense on Sunday in Tokyo. She picked up the win following a Moonsault Press and already has her first title match lined up for this Sunday’s show at Korakuen Hall when she defends the belt against Chardonnay. Kelly Klein and Chardonnay both issued their respective challenges for the championship post-match, with Klein threatening to bring the championship stateside upon her departure from the tour. Klein and Bea Priestley came up short in their attempt to dethrone Kagetsu and Hana Kimura of the Goddesses of STARDOM Titles, as the champions scathed away with their third successful defense of the belts. The biggest news item coming out of Sunday’s show is the sudden announcement that Yoko Bito is electing to retire once again and that her final matchup will be apart of the promotion’s year-end show on December 24th. Bito’s opponent will be announced in the coming weeks; an official reasoning for Bito’s decision has not been reported…
WrestleCircus’ show on Saturday was canceled and they are steadily offering refunds for the matter. The promotion has not explained the cause of the cancellation four days before Tessa Blanchard’s latest Lady of the Ring title defense against Chelsea Green… Mortar successfully retained her NAW Women’s Championship against Kellyanne on Saturday in Glenroy, Victoria. Her title defense since winning the belt was scheduled to take place at New Age Wrestling’s November 4th show, however, the matchup against Kellyanne was postponed due to the champion suffering an injury… Last Saturday, Isana was crowned the inaugural House of Bricks Women’s Champion after beating Tequila Rosee in New Bedford, Massachusetts… There’s only one semifinal matchup left to determine all three finalists in the AAW Women’s Championship tournament. The promotion officially finished out its first round three weeks ago in Berwyn, Illinois, with a local competitor, Kylie Rae pulling out the upset victory over fan favorite, Su Yung. It had appeared that Jessicka Havok’s match against Candice LeRae was going to be apart of that Saturday night’s lineup, as the show included two of the three semifinal matchups taking place. Ivelisse and Rachael Ellering advanced to the three-way finals of the tournament after going over and besting their opponents, Delilah Doom, who had defeated Veda Scott the night before and Kylie respectively. Instead, Havok defeated Allie Kat in a non-tournament matchup that night and the semifinals match has been announced for the December 2nd show in LaSalle, Illinois, as the winner goes on to face Ivelisse and Ellering in the championship finals that same night… RESISTANCE Pro presented their final event on Saturday night in Summit, Illinois, as the promotion has ceased its operations and it appears that going forward that their current champions, Holidead included will continue to defend the belts… Sexy Samantha defeated Saraya Sawyer to retain the Monster Pro Wrestling Women’s Title this past Saturday in Edmonton, Alberta… Angel Hayze successfully retained the Scottish School of Wrestling Diamonds Championship against Ashley Vega on Saturday… Kasey Owens is now a two-time ICW Women’s Champion after defeating Kay Lee Ray for the belt in Glasgow on Sunday. The title change occurred during the Steel Cage matchup, which was officiated by Carmel Jacob at “Fear & Loathing X” and seen Owens escape the four-wall structure after leaving Viper laying and the champion trapped inside. After unseating her sometime in July for the belt, Owens dropped the championship back to Ray in October and went on to make one successful title defense a couple of weeks ago against Viper and Sierra Loxton in Cardiff, Wales. Owens is now once again a double champion, as she currently holds the BEW Women’s Title. She defends the ICW belt against Viper on December 10th in Glasgow.
This year’s lineup for the CANUSA Classic has finally gotten matches and its promotion has been busy rolling out the announcements concerning the annual conflict on Canadian soil.
The teams will be headed by the soon-to-be-retired, Gail Kim and Allie, who is leading the crew from the United States. Let’s get to who’s exactly on these teams – the American side sees multi-time champions, Mercedes Martinez and Cheerleader Melissa working alongside Samantha Heights, Veda Scott and Jordynne Grace. The captains will collide in their own singles matchup, while their teammates will face off in their own clashes. Samantha Heights will be taking on a competitor that displays the same rough exterior as she in Jewells Malone. Jordynne’s debut for the promotion will see her standing on the opposing side of the ring from Alexia Nicole for the first time, as the two have never wrestled before. Another first-time matchup booked for the show is the one between Danyah and Veda Scott, as this will be the Toronto native’s return to the ring since making a one-time small appearance for the promotion last October.
In the last several years, Danyah has taken multiple hiatuses from professional wrestling after being one of the many women that were active in the Toronto area during the mid-2000’s. Dominique Fabiano will not only be making her SMASH debut as part of the Classic, but she’ll be stepping across the Canadian border for the second when she faces Gisele Shaw, who besides a short run with REINA Joshi Pro back in 2016 and a few shows here in the states, still continues to wrestles within the confines of Saskatchewan. Cheerleader Melissa will be taking on one of the more experienced members of the maple leaf team aside from Rosemary in Xandra Bale. The last time Mercedes Martinez faced off with Rosemary, she dropped the Femmes Fatales International Championship to her back in August of 2014 and before that, they faced off in a sanctioned title defense as part of the Volume 62 tapings in April.
Rosemary’s win over Allie in last year’s main event between the captains helped hand the Canadians their first sweep in the CANUSA Classic. In the years past, the American team has always managed to defeat them by having a one-point advantage over the local competitors. Both teams were tied during last year’s show, with Bale, Danyah and Cat Power turning over wins on the likes of Leva Bates, Ingrid Isley, Mia Yim, while Martinez evened up the score with her singles victory over KC Spinelli. From there, the Steel Cage matchup could have resulted in a clean sweep for either group; it gave the Canucks the final ditch effort to beat Allie and her team, which happened. The CANUSA Classic goes down on December 3rd at the Franklin Horner Community Centre in Toronto.
What’s going on this weekend on the indies and beyond…
Xandra Bale has a chance to become a three-time PWE Flame Champion on Sunday when she challenges two-time titleholder, Stacy Thibault for the title in Oshawa… Faye Jackson and Veda Scott go head-to-head in a Survivor Series styled matchup for this Friday night’s NOVA Pro Wrestling show in Fairfax, Virginia. Jackson’s team consists of Mia Yim, Brittany Blake, Jordynne Grace and LuFisto, while Laynie Luck, Sahara Se7en, and Allie Kat have joined Scott’s and Deonna Purrazzo’s side of things… Jinny’s first title defense of the Maiden of CHAOS Championship is booked for this Sunday’s show in Bradley Stoke, Bristol, as she puts her belt on the line against Sierra Loxton… Tessa Blanchard will be wrestling down under this weekend, as she heads to Australia for back-to-back bookings with World Series Wrestling and their tour through the continent. She faces Indi Hartwell two weeks after working the dark match before the Volume 98 tapings on Friday in Melbourne. She will then go on to face Savannah Summers the following evening in Adelaide, Victoria and finish out the tour with a one-on-one meeting with Shazza McKenzie in Penrith, New South Wales on Monday night and shockingly, this is the going to be the first time she and McKenzie have ever fought… Lana Austin and Saraya Knight will be battling it out to become the inaugural TNT Extreme Women’s Champion on Thursday in Liverpool, Merseyside. Both competitors are currently undefeated in the promotion, with Knight holding wins over the likes of Lizzy Styles and Little Miss Roxxy. Austin has also scored a win over Roxxy and even pulled out the victory over the very decorated Toni Storm. The title contest has since been turned into a Last Woman’s Standing matchup, with the promotion proclaiming that this feud has been two years in the making, as their earliest matches happened in June of 2015 on a show for the Merseyside company. Their most recent clash saw Lana Austin unseat Saraya as the Queen of Southside Championship… Terra Calaway challenges for Willow Nightingale’s Starlet Championship on Saturday in Deer Park, New York… Amarah defends her DOA Women’s Championship against Charlie Morgan this Sunday in Cambridge… Toni Storm has a PROGRESS Women’s Title defense signed for this Sunday’s show in Camden after accepting Alex Windsor’s challenge. Also at Chapter 58, is a No Disqualification matchup that sees the rivalry between Jinny and Dahlia Black come to a head, as the winner will become the newest number one contender and go on to face Storm or Windsor for the championship down the line…
Beginning on Friday, WrestleCade takes place this weekend in Winston Salem, North Carolina. The promotional event has announced a Queens of Combat showcase for Sunday, however, besides a bunch of names getting plugged for the main show, no matches had been added to the actual women’s show until now. Current champion Su Yung will be in the house to defend the title against Mia Yim. Brittany Blake and Leva Bates will be taking on Penelope Ford and Maria Manic. Samantha Heights will be going up against Nicole Pain, LuFisto and Rachael Ellering will face off and Zoey Skye (Angel Dust) will go one-on-one with Allie. Another matchup on the bill is one that sees the wager of both opponents’ career is on the line, with the loser being forced into retirement. Miss Diss Lexia has challenged now former-friend, Zane Riley to this matchup as a result of Riley no-showing her wedding and posted a promo to the promotion’s page detailing the betrayal. Ivelisse, Chelsea Green, Taya Valkyrie, Rosemary, Angelina Love, Madison Rayne and more will be apart of WrestleCade’s conventions and autograph signings, while Renee Michelle, Mickie Knuckles, Kylie Rae, Ivory Robyn, Kiera Hogan and more have been added to the Queens of Combat lineup. Weirdly, David McLane’s Women of Wrestling, “WOW Superheroes” for short, is going to be running their first live event on the east coast as part of the annual weekend. The show will include former champion, Jungle Grrrl going up against Lana Star’s new protege, “The Beverly Hills Babe” formerly known as Amber O’Neal.
This weekend’s shows will include two tournaments running on opposite ends of the planet…
Southside Wrestling Entertainment is set to present their second annual Queen of the Ring tournament this Saturday in Sheffield, as the promotion hosts two shows that afternoon and evening in the metropolitan borough of South Yorkshire. This year’s field consists of Viper, Kay Lee Ray, and current champion, Lana Austin competing for the second time around, while competitors like Sienna and Sammii Jayne first appearances will be made through the tournament. Martina, Shanna, and Toni Storm have been invited back by the promotion after working events earlier this year. In addition, there will be non-tournament action, as recent Queen of Southside Champion Saraya Knight will be taking on Kasey Owens.
Kay Lee Ray defended the belt throughout last year’s tournament before dropping it in the finals to Melina, who would then vacate the championship months later. The Scotswoman had recently regained the title from Mia Yim in August and had only been the champion for a mere fifty-six days when the promotion decided to pull the switch. Kay Lee Ray had defeated Jessicka Havok in the semi-finals round and even bested the woman that took the title from her in the first place, Nixon Newell in a Street Fight. One would think that the stipulated matchup between the rivals would be booked for Southside’s tournament finals and not the quarterfinals. However, the “hoss” fight between Havok and Viper wouldn’t have occurred in the case and it’s pretty clear that the promotion wanted that quote on quote “dream” collision to be apart of the tournament’s first run.
Melina was officially announced as an entrant into the Queen of the Ring that June and her in-ring return would be apart of the promotion’s show four months later in West Bridgford. The tag team matchup with Newell happened to be the former multiple-time champion’s first wrestling appearance since working the Covina, California shows for World Wonder Ring STARDOM and their first venture on American soil the previous October. The match was declared a no contest after all four competitors, Kay Lee Ray and Alex Windsor included, ended up taking a dip in a swimming pool. The tournament took place the following day on October 2nd in Sheffield and again, Melina won the entire field and the championship concurrently despite there being a snafu in the semi-finals round.
It was supposed to be Windsor going up against Melina to determine the first of the two finalists, instead, Windsor backed out proclaiming that she was injured during the swimming pool spot the night before. She refused to hand Melina the rightful “bye” into the finals despite working Leah Vaughan with no indication of the alleged impairment in the first round of the tournament. She then announced that her replacement for the matchup would be the already-eliminated Viper. Windsor’s interference eventually became her downfall, as she was knocked off the apron by her accomplice. Melina wrapped things up in a short manner with a delayed Thesz Press that was able to hold Viper down despite the obvious size difference.
The finals consisted of interference after interference, as Stevie Boy, Nixon Newell and Viper all go involved the match and multiple false finishes. Kay Lee Ray almost walked away with the victory after getting a near-fall on Melina following a Gory Bomb. The two-count prompted the champion to secure a steel chair on the outside, but before she could make it back inside and make contact with Melina’s body, the referee intervened and took the weapon from her. The referee’s poor attempts at ejecting Stevie Boy resulted in him hitting the ring again after Melina kicked out of another Gory Bomb from Ray. This time Nixon Newell made the save on Melina’s behalf and brawled with Stevie Boy all the way to the backstage area. Once again the referee is distracted when Viper clobbers Melina from behind with the Queen of Southside Title in hand. Kay Lee Ray then went for quick pinfall on Melina and again she kicked out, leading to Viper rolling back into the ring to re-do the championship spot, however the referee gets bumped here after trying to stop Viper; together the Scotswomen tried once more to put the former Women’s Champion away with a Gory Bomb assisted by Viper from the middle rope. The referee awoke in time to make the two-count after Jessicka Havok dispatched of Viper and at this point, the champion went for her finisher yet again and finally, the match was ended when Melina reversed the hold into an Indian deathlock for the win.
The premise of the match was to basically get over the fact that Melina was competing for the first time in years, which was not true and if the idea of ring rust could be preventative in her making it all the way to the finals to face one of the premier performers on the United Kingdom scene and in Europe. Melina held onto the Queen of Southside Championship for a little while, 259-days to be exact before the promotion had officially announced that she had been stripped of the title. She defended the belt three weeks later as part of a six-way in Stevenage and successfully retained against Ray, Dahlia Black, Alex Windsor, Newell and Ruby Summers. Her last title defenses came against Shanna and Kasey Owens, which were held a week apart. Speaking of Owens, she’s left out of the tournament again despite cutting a scathing promo during last year’s show in regards to her non-participation. I wouldn’t be shocked if Owens was to dredge up that same speech at Sunday’s show and once again, chew Southside out for their obvious lack of inclusion. However, her opponent this time around happens to be a former champion, whereas last year she faced off against Ruby Summers (Radley), who doesn’t hold the same candle when it comes to experience. Saraya Knight is implanted into Southside’s current women’s scene, whereas Summers at the time was only making small appearances and putting over its core roster.
Owens called out the winner of the tournament in her promo and stated that whoever won the finals, she wanted to be the next competitor to challenge them for the championship, which she did and was unsuccessful. In Toni Storm’s case, this year alone she’s won four of the seven tournaments she’s competed in and became the first wrestler to win STARDOM’s annual Cinderella and 5*STAR Grand Prix in the same calendar year. She’s even come into a championship reign by proxy of winning a tournament and is the current titleholder of PROGRESS’ women’s belt and already has a title shot lined up in the new year when she faces the eventual winner of the WXW Women’s Championship tournament. Viper lost to Storm in the finals of Westside Xtreme Wrestling’s women’s tourney back in October and is currently doubling down on bookings in Europe before heading back to Japan to help defend the Artist of STARDOM Championship alongside with HZK and Io Shirai. Besides not having the best luck in tournaments this year alone where’s she’s either eliminated before or during the semifinals, Viper is the reigning Fierce Females Champion, a belt she’s held onto for over 908-days and counting with her latest defense coming against Bea Priestley at the promotion’s return show last month.
Sammii Jayne is the current holder of not one, not two, but three championships right now after capturing the Discovery Wrestling Women’s Title over this past weekend, as she defeated Ayesha Ray, Lucy Cole and Martina to become the inaugural titleholder. Jayne is currently the Pro Wrestling: EVE and RCW Women’s Champion. Back in September, she unseated Santana Garrett of the title during the Spanish promotion’s (Revolution Championship Wrestling) weekend of shows in Barcelona and Calpe and most recently picked up her eighth defense of the EVE belt. Besides becoming the newest Queen of Southside Champion, Lana Austin has stepped her game up in terms of turning things around. She bested the former titleholder in a one-on-one singles matchup in May and went on to defeat Kay Lee Ray again in August, as part of a No Disqualification four-way in St. Neots. She unseated Saraya Knight in her first title defense as champion at the tail-end of October; it’s shocking that Knight is not involved in this tournament in any form. The standings in the tournament will see Viper going up against Martina, Shanna going up against Sienna, Toni Storm going one-on-one with Kay Lee Ray and champions, Sammii Jayne and Lana Austin colliding – Southside Wrestling has not confirmed whether the Queen of Southside will be defended throughout the tournament or not.
Beyond Wrestling’s year-annual tournament receives a feminine touch for the second time around, as Women’s Wrestling Revolution will be holding its own version of the “Tournament For Tomorrow”…
This Sunday marks the official debut of the women’s promotion in its new home for now in Worchester, Massachusetts after its original stomping grounds, The Aurora was closed down in October. The promotion presented a female dubbed version of the tournament as part of last November’s doubleheader with Beyond in Providence, which featured the standings being spread throughout two days that the promotion was working in the city. Four matches have been announced for the tournament and it features clashes between Tasha Steelz and Terra Calaway and Jordynne Grace going up against “Hot Scoop” Skylar. Vanity – Davienne and Karen Q’s second-ever singles match against Willow Nightingale since unsuccessfully challenging for the Starlet Championship in July will also be apart of the first round of the tournament.
Besides the eight-woman contest, the promotion has three additional non-tournament matches booked for the show. The first one sees Sonya Strong finally getting to settle her quote on quote grudge with Veda Scott after calling her out amongst others at a previous show in a blistering promo, which you can see here. Strong’s words might have come back to bite her though; at “Adios Aurora,” Deonna Purrazzo, Karen Q, and Tasha Steelz helped Tessa Blanchard secure the win over Strong as a result of the latina’s public service announcement. Its unknown as to whether Scott will be aided during her matchup against Strong or not, because all three assailants are booked on the card and aside from being caught up in the tournament standings, Purrazzo will be closing another Women’s Wrestling Revolution show as part of the debut at the Electric Haze. It’s also interesting to note that Sonya Strong might have a fiery promo prepared for her absence from the tournament – Scott made it to the finals of last year’s version against the winner, Kimber Lee and is also absent.
Purrazzo will be wrestling Madison Rayne in her first appearance for the promotion and following this matchup, the expectations have to be at its highest in terms of getting that “dream” opponent and continuing on Purrazzo’s story. She’s sometimes addressed as Alisha Edwards, but for those more familiar with her former moniker, “Alexxis Nevaeh,” Edwards will be in non-tournament competition against Jenny Rose and believe it or not, the match is going to be their first-ever singles fight since colliding during the Uncensored Rumble (Women Superstars Uncensored) back in August of 2013. Solo Darling will be making her return on Sunday after last competing at the November shows while Allie Kat’s official debut will be apart of the show. Ashley Vox and Delmi Exo will also be returning following their loss to Edwards and Taeler Hendrix in October.
Another tournament that’s going to be taking place soon is the one being put on by Revolution Pro out in the United Kingdom.
The promotion has made the decision to grant it’s budding women’s division a championship five-years into its operation this coming January and has announced that they will be crowning the inaugural titleholder on the seventh of that month through a tournament that’s currently shaping up. The first competitor to be entered into the championship foray actually declared themselves for the tournament back on November 5th, as Jinny tossed her hat into the mix by announcing her participation in hopes of claiming her rightful spot as the “queen” of the British wrestling scene. She’s been proven to be unstoppable when it comes to defending that title she’s anointed herself with and remains undefeated in the promotion, as this year alone she’s overcome every opponent that’s been stacked against her.
Beginning with her promotional debut last June, Jinny bested U.K based competitor, Addy Starr in one of her final three bookings before bidding retirement that year. Her momentum continued on through the remainder of 2016, coupled with wins over Xia Brookside and the sixth entrant into the tournament, Zoe Lucas. Lucas’ worked some of the earliest women’s matches in the promotion back in 2015 when she wrestled Jamie Hayter to a disqualification finish that ended up going in Lucas’ favor, as she was the victor. The matchup was pre-taped during the Portsmouth show at the Mountbatten Centre that July and it was follow up to Hayter’s win over the hometown hero in June and was later broadcast to their YouTube channel as part of their then-televised episodes.
Following her championship declaration, Jinny has issued an open challenge for Revolution Pro’s sold-out December 8th show, “Uprising” at York Hall. The match will be the first time the women have worked inside the building, to which the promotion has stated that once they had begun a fledgling division, the women will be front and center when they host the venue again. Deonna Purrazzo was the second competitor announced for the tournament and besides working RISE’s showcase with BellaTrix back in September, the show will be Purrazzo’s second time working in the United Kingdom and will also be her official debut for Revolution Pro Wrestling. Millie McKenzie, Zan Phoenix, and Nina Samuels are the other competitors named for the championship tournament and while the lineup consists of six participants thus far, it doesn’t appear that the promotion will be pushing the numbers up and implementing additional people into the matchups.
