It’s been a pretty Euro-centric sort of week here at Ringbelles, so we may as well continue in that ethos…
The roster for the Bellatrix 6 iPPV on June 23 has been revealed, with a lot of new names featuring in the lineup. Nine European nations are represented on the show, with women from England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Norway, Finland, France, Italy, Germany and Portgual being represented. Representing England are regulars Saraya Knight, rising star Penelope, RQW European Women’s Champion Liberty, rookie Chanel, Destiny, Skarlett, Erin Angel and Violet O’Hara. Other roster members returning are Italian Queen Maya, Northern Ireland’s Rhia O’Reilly and Norway’s Miss Mina, as well as Finn Aurora Flame and France’s X-Cute Sweet, who have both been absent since Bellatrix 2 11 months ago.
There is also an influx of Scottish talent heading to Norwich. Nikki Storm, Carmel Jacob, Bete Noire and Kay Lee Ray all make their debuts, while Viper makes her first appearance in the promotion since teaming with Destiny at WAWW The Return in November 2011. Rounding off the roster are Germany’s Alpha Female and Portugal’s Perfect Athlete Shanna making their first Bellatrix appearances, making it a roster of 20 women participating.
Absent from the roster are four women who competed at Bellatrix 5. Amy Lee, Phobia, Rebecca Mason (who revealed that she is attending a private family matter on that day so won’t be available) and Bacardi are seemingly not a part of next month’s card.
Looking at the lineup, it could be argued that it’s a who’s who of European wrestlers – plus, with a number of debuts, there is a possibility of first-time matchups for fans who choose to attend the show or order the iPPV broadcast. While we still haven’t received updates on the rest of the card – O’Reilly defending the British Championship against Angel is the only contest which has been confirmed so far – we expect more matches to be made public over the next few weeks. We will keep you updated.
