There are key moments in pro wrestling history, watershed moments, if you will, that really change the landscape of what we consider a pro wrestling match and makes us question “What is Wrestling?” and “What is Wrestling in the Context of Being an Art Form?”. This is an article about a moment like that. This is…

Ringbelles Roundup (6/22/16) – Slap Happy win championship gold, Ivelisse shows up and wins a championship, Anarchy’s 2016 Queen of Queens, more on SHIMMER’s weekend, Euro news & more

These women individually are threatening enough in their own right and have a reputation that precedes them as “hard-hitting, dangerous” (in Baszler’s case) or as everyone’s favorite overused term “stiff.” It makes perfect sense and there’s no logical explanation needed for these women to unite as one when they happen to be cut from the…
