WSU Blood And Thunder – what's whetting our appetite?

WSU Saraya Knight Mickie KnucklesThis Saturday sees a Women Superstars Uncensored Championship match which is a year in the making. Ever since October 13 last year, Lexxus has been claiming that she is the uncrowned champion after losing a 3-way title match at Full Steam Ahead where Jessicka Havok beat she and Alicia, though it was the latter challenger who took the fall. Claiming she was never beaten, she ran her mouth claiming she deserved another crack at the title. In two days at Blood and Thunder in Voorhees, NJ, the former WSU Tag Team Champion gets her opportunity to put up or shut up after beating Nevaeh at August’s Uncensored Rumble VI show to become the top contender.

As for Havok, it’s her first title defence since February’s An Ultraviolent Affair event where she defeated Athena to retain the championship. Since then, she has defeated Sami Callihan (who substituted for an injured LuFisto) at Queen and King of the Ring in May and missed the Uncensored Rumble due to travel issues.

Considering Lexxus’ big talking and the amount of time since Havok’s last defence, we’re expecting the main event to be an entertaining outing, and it’s one of the big matches we’re looking forward to at Blood and Thunder. Let’s take a look at the others…

First off, there’s the match which is being used on the show’s poster. After last Sunday’s Absolute Intense Wrestling Girls Night Out 9 & 10 tapings, Mickie Knuckles said that her No DQ victory over Jenny Rose was a warm-up for her contest against Saraya Knight on Saturday. However, mere hours before, the former SHIMMER Champion was also getting her brawl on against Cheerleader Melissa as part of Bellatrix 7. Not that either match should be considered a warm-up, but they both have their eye in ahead of their No DQ, Fans Bring The Weapons contest in a couple of days.

Shanna returns to WSU following her debut at the Uncensored Rumble for her first singles contest in the promotion, taking on a woman who she has tangled with on a number of occasions over the summer in the UK – and won every single time – in Leah Von Dutch, and you can see one of their matches here. Considering how many times they have tangled, we’re expecting this to be fun to watch.

There is also the match which came about because of one half of the reigning Tag Team Champions being booked elsewhere on Saturday night. While Sassy Stephie wrestles Maria Kanellis at Remix Pro in Marietta, OH, her Midwest Militia teammate Allysin Kay takes on Kimber Lee in a contest we’re really looking forward to.

Both Allysin and Kimber have impressed us hugely this year, and as we explained during our most recent Women Of Wrestling Podcast with Kay, we have our choices for 2012 Breakout Star (Kay) and Discovery (Lee) of the year winners going head to head. We liked their work last year and it’s been more of the same in 2013, so we have high hopes here too, especially considering their run-ins in the promotion over the last 12 months.

This is one of WSU’s strongest cards since it was taken over by Beyond Wrestling head Drew Cordiero last year – below is the entire card, and you can order the iPPV by clicking here. Are you watching? What matches are you looking forward to?
