Following an introduction to the festivities with Insane Championship Wrestling: Fierce Females, SHINE 13 and Pro Wrestling Syndicate Bombshells 7 over the last week or so, Open Female Fight Season is upon us and it kicks off with a bumper Sunday, with big cards on both sides of the Atlantic.
The festivities kick off in the UK with an interpromotional card which will also see the culmination of a bitter blood feud…
A long-running score will be settled at Sunday’s Bellatrix: Female Warriors show in Norwich, England when Saraya Knight takes on her heated rival Cheerleader Melissa at part of the Bellatrix 7: Bellatrix v SHIMMER event.
The pair have battled on both sides of the Atlantic and traded the SHIMMER Championship over the last 18 months, with their most recent contest taking place inside a steel cage in New Jersey in April in the main event of SHIMMER Volume 53, where Melissa regained the title. However, their battles began in the English county of Norfolk, with the pair meeting for the first time at ChickFight VII in Great Yarmouth in January 2007. That match was won by Melissa via referee stoppage when Saraya got her neck tied up in the ropes.
In the five contests between them, each has won two, and there has been one no-contest – and it is the inconclusive match from June 17, 2007 in Colchester which is the reason for the bad blood.
“We were scrapping outside the ring and my kneecap was severed on an upturned chair – I was passing in and out of consciousness and she was still trying to attack me,” tells Saraya. “I was told by doctors at the hospital that I wouldn’t wrestle again and I may even lose my leg, but I was wrestling again inside six months.
“I didn’t forget about what happened, and when I travelled to the United States with my daughter in 2011 (who now wrestles as Paige WWE) it seemed inevitable that our paths would cross – and they did. We beat the hell out of each other.
“It’s all come full circle for us now. We’ve fought in America, but our feud started in Norfolk and one way or another, it’s going to end in Norfolk.”
Three other interpromotional contests will take place at Bellatrix 7. SHIMMER’s Mercedes Martinez will defend her NCW Femmes Fatales International Championship against Norway’s Miss Mina; Bellatrix veteran Destiny will battle Canada’s LuFisto; and punk rocker Christina Von Eerie takes on Bellatrix’s Skarlett.
Elsewhere on the card, Penelope challenges British Champion Erin Angel in a rematch from their contest at Bellatrix 4 last November, which was won by Angel. Liberty defends her RQW European Championship against challenger Sammi Baynz – though win, lose or draw, Liberty faces Bellatrix World Champion Courtney Rush for the title at Bellatrix 8, which will take place in March 2014. That contest was meant to take place on Sunday’s card, but had to be postponed because of the broken collarbone suffered by Rush in the middle of last month.
“Bellatrix 7 will be the biggest show in our history,” promises Saraya. “Our wrestlers are going out there to prove that they are as good or better than the stars of SHIMMER and I know that Melissa and I are going to tear strips out of each other.”
Considering their other matches, you can count on it.
Later in the day, Absolute Intense Wrestling returns with a double DVD taping of its Girls Night Out shows, following on from GNO8 in March where Veda Scott won a four-way Ladder Match to earn a shot at the Women’s Championship – so Ohio Valley Wrestling was mistaken in the build up to its Women’s Title match a few weeks ago when it was billed as a first time ever encounter.
She will challenge Allysin Kay in the main event of GNO10 after standing across the ring against each other on GNO9 as part of a “dream partner” tag match where Scott seemingly has her Hope and Change partner Gregory Iron by her side while Kay intimated that Amazing Kong will be on her side. However, neither has officially set in stone their choices, so we will see.
Scott has been busy in AIW this year, holding the Tag Team Championship with Iron and making a general nuisance of herself with her legal wranglings – meanwhile, Kay has been working elsewhere, including three months in Japan working with the Diana promotion, so we’ll see what extra skills the champ has picked up in that time.
Elsewhere on the card, a number of new faces will appear at the show in Cleveland, OH. Nikki Storm, Santana Garrett, Shanna, Savannah Summers and Jewells Malone all make their debuts on the events in a number of interesting contests. Seleziya Sparx is also in action on the show against Taeler Hendrix, and her other half Ethan Page says he’ll also be there as the resident misogynist.
Some of the more interesting matches on the undercard include Storm against the very impressive Kimber Lee, Portugal’s Shanna against Australia’s Savannah Summers, Garrett against Jenny Rose, Rose against Mickie Knuckles and Storm facing Mia Yim in a rematch from SHINE 13.
The interesting thing will be how well the double taping goes down with an AIW audience that usually only has to stay amped for one show. However, the concept of double tapings is not a new one, so things should be fine – and coupled with the long-hyped main event, which could easily see a new champion, it should be a hot crowd all night. We look forward to catching it when the shows are released for download.
On last night’s Raw, Total Divas seeped into the main event picture as Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella’s relationship was acknowledged on WWE TV as part of the final angle between Bryan and WWE Champion Randy Orton. She ran to ringside to try and halt the beating of her beau ahead of their title match this Sunday at the Battleground PPV, in a culmination of Orton intimidating Bella earlier on during the broadcast after congratulating her on her engagement to Bryan.
The pair announced their intention to wed on September 27 with a picture of Brie’s ring being sent around social media. Unquestionably, the way it all happened will feature on the season extension of Total Divas coming later this year, though the proposal all screams of convenient timing for the filming of the show and also so it works into the final angle ahead of the PPV. I’m sure the engagement is with the best intentions, but it all seems a little too… perfect.
Sunday’s card also sees Brie in action herself – she’s challenging AJ Lee for the Divas Championship after pinning the titleholder on Raw last week during a 10-woman tag team match – which could be a change of direction considering the initial signs for AJ’s next challenger all pointed towards Natalya following the 4-way at Night Of Champions. It could mean that under the right circumstances, both members of the happy couple could leave as titleholders. It could also mean that Total Divas gets the happy ending which it may be searching for, and offers a nice resolution to the underlying frustrations which are said to take place over the remaining episodes with Brie being upset at how she and Bryan are spending less time together because of his main event push while John Cena is on the shelf.
“My time with SHIMMER has come to an end. I loved watching a small show grow into a world wide breeding ground for talent. Thank you everyone”.
That’s the message left by ring announcer Joey Eastman on his Twitter account on September 26, marking his departure from SHIMMER: Women Athletes. Barring Cheerleader Melissa and a couple of referees, Joey has featured front and centre on the largest number of shows, appearing at 53 of the promotion’s 57 tapings. Some may shrug their shoulders and question the importance of a ring announcer bowing out – the reason being real life commitments including work and family – but Joey Eastman has been a wonderful constant throughout the promotion’s life.
With a great announcing voice, Joey has introduced fans to a range of new faces over the years. Whether it’s helping us with the pronunciation of joshi names or delivering the longest ring introduction in the promotion for Kellie Skater, he adds an air of officialism to the proceedings, but was also easy-going enough to let everyone else get in on the fun. He’s also built up heels by backing down from threats and had fun with babyfaces. However, as well as being great on-screen, he was fantastic when the cameras weren’t rolling, or when tapes were being changed.
It’s hard enough keeping that enthusiasm going during the final taping of the weekend when your hands hurt from clapping, your back hurts from sitting in the same position and you’re sweating in a small room with 200 other fans. Joey did his damnedest to keep spirits high in-between matches, updates fans on sports scores coming in and made sure everyone stayed upbeat right to the conclusion of the final match. That takes a particular level of skill, especially when you’re probably exhausted yourself.
Filling Joey’s position will be incredibly difficult. He is a great announcer, very personable and has a huge enthusiasm for the promotion and its ethos. Treating it with respect and dignity, there are few who could come up to his level. On the occasions when he was not announcing, Kevin Harvey took the microphone, so he may be a viable replacement; meanwhile Chasity Taylor has been bettering herself in SHINE and has also been the ring announcer for the SPARKLE pre-shows. Perhaps it’s her time.
Either way, they face a monumental task to take over duties from Joey. You – and your hugely colourful wardrobe – will certainly be missed by SHIMMER fans. All the best to you, buddy.

He weighed 8 pounds and 3 ounces. She announced her pregnancy at her Hall Of Fame induction in April.
Mickie James reportedly turned down a $60,000 a year offer from TNA to stay. As a frame of reference, Alicia Fox reportedly earns more than that on a downside guarantee, which means she’ll get extra payments for licensing and stuff. Word is Mickie’s charging $1,800 for indie appearances… When asked about her status with TNA, Mickie told Inside The Ropes “I mean I really don’t know. I’m not at liberty to say. I’m sure people can figure it out”… Looks like TNA is trying to do something with the Knockouts division haemorrhaging women. It announced on last week’s Impact Wrestling that it’s bringing in Gut Check winner Lei’D Tapa.
Things have escalated between Kc Spinelli and Riea Von Slasher in Big West Wrestling to the point that the pair will compete in a No-DQ match on October 25… The teased friction between the Blossom Twins in Ohio Valley Wrestling was put to one side as Holly said she would support Hannah’s Women’s Championship reign, and told an angry Lei’D Tapa that if she wanted a shot at the title, she would have to go through her first. Tapa smashed Holly later in the show… Heidi Lovelace takes on Eddie Kingston for Wrestling Is Heart on October 19. That means she won’t be at the first day of SHIMMER tapings for sure… Mia Yim, MsChif, Christina Von Eerie and Mercedes Martinez have been added to the SHIMMER DVD tapings… In a recent interview with the Future Endeavours podcast, Amazing Kong said “all parties are in gorilla” as it pertains to a return to WWE.

Also on the card, Nikki Storm and Mia Yim had the match of the night, while Solo Darling put in a career performance against Mercedes Martinez… Missy Sampson earned a shot at the Pro Wrestling Syndicate Bombshells Championship after she pinned Amazing Kong and La Rosa Negra in an elimination match at Saturday’s show (her partner Annie Social had already been eliminated). As for the show itself, the production values were in the toilet and made for a horrible watch… Candice LaRae won the third annual Alternative Wrestling Show women’s tournament which was held on Saturday, beating Mariah Moreno in the finals. Also on the show Christina Von Eerie successfully defended the Women’s Championship against LuFisto… Athena’s revealed that her shoulder injury is going to keep her out until 2014… Nicole Matthews retained her Elite Canadian Championship Wrestling Women’s Title on Saturday, defeating Bambi Hall. However, the victory was a little controversial as the referee counted the fall without noticing that Hall’s foot was on the ropes. There’s going to be a rematch between the two… Leah Von Dutch is releasing a specially designed t-shirt on her store at Pro Wrestling Tees where half of the proceeds go to a breast cancer charity of the buyer’s choice, and all of the money she gets from promo pics during October will go to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. She revealed she’s going it because she lost an aunt to breast cancer a few years ago… Cat Power is also taking part in this Sunday’s Run For The Cure in Surrey, BC, Canada for the same charity. You can sponsor her here.
5STAR GP winner Nanae Takahashi will challenge Io Shirai for the World Of Stardom Championship at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo on November 4, in what will be Stardom’s 100th show. Sticking with the promotion, the teams have been announced for the third Goddesses of Stardom. They are: Nanae Takahashi & Kairi Hojo, Io Shirai & Takumi Iroha, Miho Wakizawa & Mayu Iwatani, Kaori Yoneyama & Yuhi, Kyoko Kimura & Act Yasukawa, Dash Chisako & Sendai Sachiko, Natsuki Taiyo & Yoshiko and Alpha Female & The Female Predator Amazon (Ayesha Ray).

Syuri came out to apologise to the fans for not being able to compete due to injury, but was attacked by a chair-swinging Yumiko Hotta. Straight afterwards, Arisa Nakajima suffered a dislocated elbow in her match against Makoto. Get well soons to both of them… Serena Deeb closed out her Japan tour with events for Wrestling New Classic and Diana on Sunday.
A correction – Kay Lee Ray v Crazy Mary Dobson’s match for the ICW: Fierce Females Scottish Championship will not take place at the next ICW show as had been assumed… The first matches as part of Leah Von Dutch’s second UK tour of 2013 are being announced. She will face Kay Lee Ray for Extreme American Wrestling on November 23 in a street fight as part of the promotion’s over 18s show. There’s also talk of her defending the Xtreme Bombshells Wrestling Championship while she’s on her travels… Another Kay Lee Ray result: she defeated Southside Wrestling Entertainment Speed King Champion Martin Kirby on Saturday via DQ. Kirby had Ray beaten on numerous occasions but kept picking her up at two. The match was ended after Kirby delivered a jawbreaker to KLR while she had thumbtacks in her mouth. Holy shit.
