It was interesting to see the Bellatrix roster after the Bellatrix 6 card. Out of their wrestling gear, they got dressed again into their branded t-shirts and glammed them up with shorts, skirts, blazers and the like to meet and greet the fans, sign autographs and pose for photos. In every photo, the Bellatrix logo was visible, pushing the brand and getting the recognition out there. Coupled with the gigantic wall hangings, Bellatrix: Female Warriors has ascended to be the most professional looking promotion in the western world.
Granted, a lot of joshi promotions in Japan have branded gear, and Ice Ribbon & Stardom have had workout gear too – but it is rarer to see in the English-speaking countries. However, it is something that other promotions would do well to adopt in the future.
Since rebranding from the World Association of Women’s Wrestling in January, Bellatrix as a brand has been ascending at a rapid pace, and it’s being noticed. Ahead of Sunday’s card, promoter Saraya Knight was interviewed on F4Wonline.com, the BritWresChat podcast and the BBC radio station serving Norfolk – the county which Bellatrix is based. In addition, hype was posted on a number of websites and also in the local print media, which led to an audience of more than 250 coming along to the show to make a lot of noise and generate a proper atmosphere. As far as exposure goes, Bellatrix has taken big steps forward – however, as Saraya explained during the interview with Bryan Alvarez, the end goal is not to have the promotion as the main focus; instead, it is being used as a way to point eyes towards the wrestlers on the show.
As was evident at Bellatrix 6, the fact that some of the rosters may be regulars – or even champions – in other UK promotions like Pro Wrestling: EVE and ICW: Fierce Females isn’t a barrier. Consequently, current and former EVE champions Nikki Storm and Alpha Female were on the card – with Storm even being acknowledged on commentary as the reigning EVE titleholder – and Fierce Females Scottish Champion Kay Lee Ray was also added to the lineup. No egos or hostility were evident amongst the 20 women booked on the show, and it meant that none of the matches had that underlying power struggle for a worker to get over more than their opponent – everyone was working for the greater good.
The positivity coming out of the event and the fact that more attention is being directed towards Bellatrix should stand it in good stead for the following show on October 6 where five members of the SHIMMER roster will hop over the Atlantic for the next iPPV. Had this show taken place a year ago, it may not have had as much of a buzz, but Bellatrix has a stack of credibility now, and means that any interpromotional matches will have more of an equal footing.
However, the five wrestlers who will make the trip is still somewhat up in the air. Knight has revealed that Bellatrix is in the process of sorting out work visas, though the names are being kept quiet for the most part. The first one was revealed on Sunday night with us finding out that Courtney Rush will travel over with her Bellatrix World Championship in tow – a title which she won from Allison Danger at NCW Femmes Fatales XI in March – for a trip which she readily admits that she has been hoping was going to happen in her career:
As someone who has always had a deep love of British culture, I am sure it came as no surprise to anyone who knows me that I have been adamant about wanting to wrestle in the UK for some time. The opportunity presented itself when Bellatrix’s owner and champion, Sweet Saraya and Allison Danger, respectively, considered me worthy of a shot at the company’s world title at NCW: Femmes Fatales XI in Montreal. Know that I do not intend to disappoint them. I won that belt and I intend to defend it tooth and bloody nail against anyone who tries to take it from me. Ladies, come at me!
Courtney’s story will be interesting, considering she is going to technically part of the SHIMMER roster, but will also hold the top title in the hosts’ promotion. Will she stay on the side of her North American comrades, or represent the title which she holds by aligning herself with the Bellatrix women – and if she does, what sort of reaction will that generate?
We also know that the reigning SHIMMER Champion will be making the trip, whomever that may be. Considering there are no SHIMMER shows booked between now and October 6, one would surmise that Cheerleader Melissa will also be travelling – and that will be an interesting prospect. The last time she was in the UK in the same building as Saraya Knight, the former SHIMMER Champ had to be taken to hospital after losing her kneecap and almost lost her leg and career in the process. While hostilities between the pair have been settled behind the scenes – another revelation Saraya made during the Alvarez interview – fans in Norwich have long memories, and it could be a potential powder keg. When you also factor in that Melissa is now a fully-fledged heel and Saraya is loved, it almost seems inevitable that should Melissa make the trip, some interaction may occur.
In addition, former Bellatrix British Champion Rhia O’Reilly sent us a message which indicated that she hasn’t decided where to hang her hat:
Team Bellatrix or Team SHIMMER? Decisions, decisions…
It will also be interesting to see which wrestlers will be paired with the SHIMMER roster members. For some, it will be an opportunity to face new opponents and test themselves, while for others, it will likely feel like a natural progression to the most recognisable female wrestling outfit in the western world. We will keep you posted with developments, but the speculation has already begun, which is a great indictment of how many are curious as to what will be presented to us as fans.
The TNA Knockouts Tag Team Championships were vacated on last Thursday’s Impact Wrestling. ODB and Eric Young returned the titles after Brooke Hogan declared that the reign could not continue due to lack of defences and Young being a male. Considering the pair won the titles on February 28 last year, it’s taken Brooke a long time to realise that Eric was changing in a different locker room to the rest of the Knockouts. While that may be a crappy excuse, the lack of title defences is valid, as the last time the belts were put on the line was at last year’s Lockdown on April 15 where the pair beat Sarita and Rosita in a cage. However, that means that the belts were not defended for fourteen months. As the boss lady of the division, it’s a pretty shoddy state of affairs that Brooke Hogan didn’t deal with this sooner.
In fairness, the titles have always been surplus to requirements. Debuted in September 2009, the tournament to declare the first champions was derailed between the conclusion of the semi-finals and the final as Angelina Love was forced to leave the company due to working visa issues, meaning that her Beautiful People partner Velvet Sky was put with Madison Rayne for the deciding contest, which was won by Sarita and Taylor Wilde. Considering how over Love and Sky were in their heel gimmick, one would have imagined that the belts were created for the Beautiful People to hold – so when that became impossible to accomplish, the belts were in limbo.
Sarita and Wilde’s reign lasted for three months before they were beaten by another makeshift team in Awesome Kong and Ayako Hamada, though the belts were vacated two months later when Kong left the promotion. At this point, the Beautiful People did win the titles, though it wasn’t Love and Sky, but the trio of Sky, Rayne and Lacey Von Erich held the championships using the Freebird Rule.
The threesome lost the belts to another thrown together tandem of former titleholders Hamada and Wilde before being vacated for a second time due to Hamada being released from her contract. Angelina Love – now back but playing a drugged-up disciple – and Winter won a mini-tournament to get the belts, and lost them to Sarita and Rosita at Victory Road in March 2011. From there, the titles went to Tara and Brooke Tessmacher, to Gail Kim and Rayne and then ended up in the hands of Young and ODB.
TNA seems to have had no idea with what to do with the Knockouts Tag Team Championship for a long time. In the most recent history, they could have stripped ODB and Young and used the titles to elevate others, but had no inkling of what to do – however, that seems to be synonymous with the title’s entire run. When Love and Sky didn’t become the first champions, they appeared to be making it up as they went along. Though they were unlucky in the fact that Kong was holding it when her disciplinary problems arose, but for them to release Hamada from contract while she was still holding the belt was at best a terrible oversight, and at worse, disrespectful of the very titles which wrestlers were supposed to be desiring and fighting to attain. Had they thought ahead, they could have had Hamada and Wilde lose the titles to elevate someone else, but all the times the belts were vacated and held up have robbed the titles of any credibility they had – and because they were new titles, they didn’t have much of a reputation anyway.
The belts are worthless, so it makes you wonder what TNA will choose to do with them. Building a new tag team division will take time and a bigger Knockouts roster than they have right now, though even during their “peak”, Wilde, Hamada, Rayne and Sarita all won titles with multiple partners. In addition, the titles have so much mud on them that it will take a long time for them to feel prestigious again. Personally, I can see the promotion eventually retiring them and sticking with just a singles championship for the women to fight over. Some may say it’s not right, but it’s probably better to chalk it up as a failed experiment and move on.
In the last week on the site, we have spoken to Erin Angel as part of the latest Women Of Wrestling Podcast ahead of her winning the Bellatrix British Championship on Sunday; a Retro match featuring Mighty Molly; and video of one of Leah Von Dutch’s matches in the UK. Incidentally, we have a new interview with Von Dutch coming on Thursday.

The best of the rest
According to reports, the reason why Stephanie McMahon confronted AJ Lee and Kaitlyn on last week’s Raw stems from a backstage situation where someone allegedly interrupted Stephanie and it caused a scene. That makes the angle even dumber… Speaking of Stephanie, she sold 137,610 shares of WWE stock in May for around $1.25 million. This month, she sold another 140,000 shares, generating $1.37 million. She still has 191,945 shares remaining, worth close to $2 million. It makes you wonder why she needs two and a half million dollars so swiftly… Cameron and Naomi worked as subtle heels during their tag team match on Superstars against Layla and Natalya. In what was a busy week for the Divas, Kaitlyn defeated Aksana on Main Event, and AJ Lee defeated Natalya on SmackDown with the Black Widow. On Raw, Kaitlyn beat Aksana again, but was interrupted by AJ Lee and Big E Langston mocking her by recreating the secret admirer reveal. Considering AJ has already taken Kaitlyn’s title and dignity, I’m not sure why she is still being the antagonist, as rubbing it in is likely to come back and bite her on the bum. Still, heels tend to lack foresight at times… Summer Rae joins Paige and Alicia Fox in the semi finals of the NXT Women’s Championship tournament. Summer defeated Sasha Banks on last Wednesday’s episode… Speaking of which the tournament has already been completed, but we won’t spoil it for you. Click here to see who emerged as champion… Jim Ross also commented on the developmental females, saying “Arguably, the ‘stars’ of the Thursday NXT taping were all the Divas who had a series of fundamentally sound bouts including many within the first ever, NXT Women’s Title tourney. Sara Del Ray (sic) has done a marvelous job in coaching and teaching the females in NXT and her efforts are certainly obvious to any fan of the genre”… Former WWE Diva Lena Yada is expecting a baby, which is due early next year… Kaitlyn poked fun at her wardobe malfunction on last Monday Raw by tweeting on Thursday, “Guys, Enough about the wardrobe malfunction on monday. Lets #Nip this in the bud.” Good on her for taking it all in her stride… Bret Hart’s daughter Beans (real name Alexandra) has been making noises about training to get into WWE… Rosa Mendes is back on the road. She was at NXT’s most recent tapings after being sent home from the European tour back in April… Charlotte was accompanied by father Ric Flair at the last NXT tapings… During an interview with Gerry Strauss of the Layfield Report, Trish Stratus revealed that she offered advice to Natalya during the farting gimmick and try to turn it into a positive as best that she could.
Brooke Hogan’s State of the Knockouts address was a pretty damn squib, except for announcing that Mickie James would defend the Knockouts singles title against Velvet Sky on this week’s show, and Gail Kim would fight Taryn Terrell again soon – this time in a Ladder Match.
All the best to Crazy Mary Dobson, who travels to Japan for three months with REINA x World… Mistress Belmont has been added to the Bombshell Ladies Of Wrestling show on July 26… Angelina Love and Katarina Leigh defeated Maria Kanellis and Ivelisse Velez at Family Wrestling Entertainment’s iPPV on Friday night… Heidi Lovelace confronted Taeler Hendrix over being used as a human sheild so Hendrix could beat Ohio Valley Wrestling Women’s Champion Trina Thompson the previous week, but was put at ease by her crush, who then joked about it with buddy Nikki St John. However, the Assassin was shown overhearing their conversation. Later on, Lovelace was beaten by Lei’D Tapa, while Hendrix & St John defeated the Blossom Twins… Tammy Sytch was inducted into the New England Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame at the weekend. She started her speech by saying “I don’t have a restraining order against anyone in here do I?”… Brittney Savage wasn’t at World Xtreme Wrestling on Saturday to challenge Kimberly for the Women’s Championship. Solo Darling was brought in and was beaten. Kimberly defends the belt against Mercedes Martinez on July 13… Mia Svensson filmed a pilot TV show last week… Leah Von Dutch is also in a new music video coming out soon… Maria Kanellis tweeted a picture of a woman called Many Leon, who is training with Ring Of Honor at the moment… Angel Blue won the Anarchy Championship Wrestling American Joshi Queen of Queens tournament on Sunday, scooping up the Anarchy Televised Championship in the process. She beat Barbi Hayden in the final.
The Goddesses of Stardom Tag Team Championship are vacant. Kairi Hojo & Natsumi Showzuki have given up the belts due to injuries suffered by Showzuki. A 6-team tournament will take place on July 15. Alpha Female and Wonder of Stardom Champion Dark Angel are also due to return to the promotion, as she has been announced for the 2nd Stardom 5STAR GP. They, Io Shirai, Nanae Takahashi, Kaori Yoneyama, Natsuki*Taiyo, Yoshiko and Yuhi are all in… Tsukasa Fujimoto won her second IW19 Championship on Saturday by beating Hamuko Hoshi. She will be the next to take on Tsukushi with both the IW19 and ICEx60 Titles on the line. The IW19 championship will be absorbed into the ICEx60 title in the match… AKINO made her first successful defence of the OZ Academy Openweight Championship on Sunday by beating Kagetsu… Kaori Yoneyama, Kairi Hojo & Yuhi won the vacant Artist Of Stardom title on Sunday.
Shanna revealed that she is planning to visit the US in August… Amazing Kong is returning to the UK for independent shows for the first time since since 2009. She will be a part of Preston City Wrestling and Southside Wrestling Entertainment’s shows between November 17-19… Europe Catch Tour Association’s Women’s Championship tournament semi final brackets have been announced: Lady Lory faces Queen Maya, while Morgane Leigh takes on Skarlett… The next ICW: Fierce Females show on September 22 will be called ‘XX “It’s in our DNA”’… April Davids will defend the FutureShock Women’s Championship against Viper on July 7… IPW:UK is holding a matinee show on July 20 call Ferocious Females (a name which feels a little too close to ICW: Fierce Females to me). Rhia O’Reilly & Sakura Lily are on the poster.
