For one reason or another, title matches haven’t gone according to plan for Women Superstars Uncensored in the last 18 months or so. It took an age for Kimber Lee and Annie Social to win the Tag Team Championship from Sassy Stephie and Allysin Kay – and even then, Kay wasn’t there for the title change at Mutiny after picking up an injury the night before – and two World Title matches were called off. LuFisto’s title challenge to Jessicka Havok for last May’s Queen and King of the ring had to be abandoned because of the Super Hardcore Anime exploding her kneecap with a moonsault to the floor at SHIMMER 53 the previous month, and Athena’s match with Havok booked for August’s Uncensored Rumble had to be scrapped the day before after she suffered a massive shoulder injury during the Secret Show.
However, a year on from the first abandoned match, LuFisto v Havok was set for Saturday’s Queen and King of the Ring following LuFisto beating Athena in a titanic clash to become number one contender again – though a spanner was thrown into the works last Thursday when WSU announced it had fired (or “banned for life” as its statement said) Jessicka Havok and stripped her of the WSU World Championship after holding the belt for around two years.
No reason has been given for the firing, and WSU isn’t discussing the matter – though we have had it confirmed that it is not a work or storyline. That’s not to say that Havok will never be back – as you should never say never – but this isn’t part of an angle to bring her back in the future. We also approached Jessicka for comment but she declined to discuss the matter at this time.
Some fans have speculated that Havok may be part of TNA’s Knockouts Knockdown PPV taping taking place in Orlando, FL on Saturday, and that she may have pulled out of the WSU show to take the TNA booking, which may have led to the firing, but we don’t know anything, and there is no concrete evidence to suggest that is the case. It’s possible, but none of the parties involved are talking.
Since the announcement, WSU has been working hard to make good on a third World Title match in a year falling through after being heavily promoted. The vacant championship will go to either LuFisto or Athena, as the pair will now wrestle in a 2 out of 3 falls contest, which will be LuFisto’s second match of that nature in just over a month – the last one was against Cheerleader Melissa at SHIMMER 62 – and is expected to be a blockbuster, based on the positivity from their initial encounter.
In addition, a new World Title belt being designed to replace the one which has been around for more than five years. A good thing too, as the current one isn’t aesthetically pleasing, is too large and looked a bit off-the-rack. Hopefully the Spirit and Tag Team belts are next, as they aren’t nice to look at either – though the doubles straps have a nice premise for the design.
Another pullout from the show has also meant some rejigging of the opening round matches for the Queen and King of the Ring tournament. Mia Yim not being there to partner Greg Excellent means that Kimber Lee and Drew Gulak’s first match being in the semi-finals – with the explanation that it’s because they were finalists last year. The other three quarter-final matches are Shanna & Chris Dickinson v Sassy Stephie & DJ Hyde, Candice LeRae & Joey Ryan v Shelly Martinez & JT Dunn andMickie Knuckles & Matt Tremont v Jewells Malone & Danny Havoc.
There are also three other singles matches taking place at the event – Hania and Jenny Rose clash again after their match at Mutiny in February ended with a flubbed referee count leading to a Rose victory, and Angie Skye facing Angelus Layne in an Uncensored Opportunity match. Rounding off the card is Barbi Hayden making a second NWA World Women’s Championship defence on a WSU card with her putting the belt on the line against Nevaeh.
WSU certainly needs some stability with its title feuds, and hopefully this can begin this Saturday. Either Athena or LuFisto will leave Voorhees, NJ with the title – and a series of strong title defences over the rest of 2014 will help with solidifying the post-Havok era.
Terri Runnels recently opened herself up to questions on Reddit, where she was pretty candid with her time during the Attitude Era, pushing the envelope with her clothes, being the first woman to be put through a table by the Dudley Boyz in early 2000, and her current standing with ex-husband Dustin “Goldust” Runnels. Below are some of the examples of what the former Alexandra York/Marlena talked about:
On the miscarriage angle while part of the Pretty Mean Sisters in early 1999: “HATED the name PMS, HATED, HATED that cheap angle!!! That was a Vince Russo special that I begged him to change…Vince McMahon sided with Russo on that one! CHEAP and not effective!”
Flashing the flesh: “I showed what I wanted to where my boobs were concerned. I enjoyed the introduction and perfection of the underboob! Always made some countries a little nervous. :D”
Being the first Dudleyz tables victim: “LOVED being the first woman to be put through the table with the Dudleys. Vince was VERY nervous and threatened Bubba if he hurt me! I asked for the table NOT to be gimmicked…and my only regret is that Bubba was scared he would hurt me and he protected me too much! I wanted more of that table! TRUE!”
Her current dynamic with Goldust: “Always massive respect and love based on the fact that we have a daughter together. Sometimes I wish his current wife would be comfortable in the fact that he is all hers where the husband wife thing is concerned. We have co-parented and communicated since 1999 w/o any major troubles. I think there might be a bit of a short leash there. That is his choice and he has to live with it. What matters is that we communicate for Dakota [their daughter, now 20]. We used to have a lot more fun and laughs though…I have to say that is a bit disappointing now that I think of it. :(”
The nicest thing Vince McMahon ever did for her: “Let me sign a contract to only work TV’s and PPV’s so I could be at home with Dakota! :)”
Fair play to Terri – she enjoyed two years in WCW and eight in WWE and spends time working with charities. She’s had some relationship issues since her divorce from Goldust in 1999 – a whirlwind marriage in 2002 which lasted 4 and a half months from meeting to divorce – and an odd couple situation with former ECW star New Jack which ended up with them going through the courts. For the most part, she seems to be at peace and isn’t looking to find a way back into the wrestling business.
Elsewhere on the site this week is a new interview from a fresh perspective. We’ve spoken to Vicky Bell from Vickstitch Customs about the challenges of creating gear for women, and we have also featured an intergender match featuring Kimber Lee.

Following her defeat of Alicia Fox on Main Event last Tuesday, Paige was confronted by Tamina Snuka ahead of their Divas Title match at Extreme Rules – a match which Paige won with the Scorpion Crosslock. The pair exchanged harsh glares before separating. Incidentally, Paige won her match with Fox with the RamPaige – an elevated DDT which hasn’t been seen for a while – rather than the Scorpion Crosslock… WWE made some releases on Wednesday. Among them was Raquel Diaz (Shaul Guerrero) and Shara (Sweden’s Sarah Backman). It’s the second time Diaz has left the company – during this run she had no TV time – and former arm wrestler Shara reportedly asked for her release early last week. She signed in March last year though her visa didn’t come through until November… The NXT Women’s Title tournament got underway last week with Sasha Banks and Natalya advancing to the semi-finals. F4W’s Bryan Alvarez brought up a good point about this last week though: if Paige was stripped of the belt because she’ll be travelling around the world with Raw and SmackDown, how does that justify the likes of Natalya and Layla being part of this tournament?… Tough Enough may be returning as a WWE Network show. The last season featured Trish Stratus as a trainer, and was pretty boring. Ivelisse Velez was featured on it but was eliminated due to injury, and Funkadactlyl Cameron was the first person eliminated – though has had the most successful WWE career out of anyone on the show, which makes a mockery of the competition aspect of the show… Natalya trained with MMA stars Ronda Rousey, Jessamyn Duke and Shayna Baszler of The Four Horsewomen… Emma worked the Australian media to hype the upcoming WWE tour in the country in August… Shanna was one of Adam Rose’s Rosebuds on last night’s Raw. When asked if she was receiving a WWE tryout, she replied “no comment”… In an interview with the Miami Herald, Trish Stratus said about the Divas: “I don’t know how many times I’ve said this, but all they need is a bit more character development. We don’t get to know them, so when they get to the ring unfortunately, nobody cares. There is nothing for us to get behind or motivated or excited about character-wise and storyline-wise. I think there needs to be a little bit more focus on characters and with more TV time. I need to know these characters”.
The woman playing Rebel in Knux’s new stable is former Dallas Cowboy cheerleader Tanea Brooks. She was suggested to TNA by Christy Hemme, who knew her from before her wrestling days… The Beautiful People received a letter from “TNA Management” saying they should cover up, so they got to the ring and threatened to strip out of their evening gowns. Gail Kim came out to set up a title programme with Angelina Love, and Love & Sky were stripped from their clothes by Brittany and Madison Rayne as they tried to leave the ring. With women being disrobed and being reduced to their underwear, it feels so Russo-esque.
Sarita (Dark Angel) became the first Beauty Slammers Champion by beating Serena Deeb and Bambi Hall in a 3-way at the iPPV taping in Sydney, NS, Canada on Friday night. Deeb and Sarita both appeared on CTV Atlantic’s morning programme to hype the show but the presenter had no idea what she was talking about… Leah Von Dutch won the Vixens Queen of the Ring tournament on Saturday’s Vicious Outcast Wrestling show to earn a shot at the Women’s Title at any time. Chasity Taylor was legitimately knocked unconscious during her match with Samantha Starr, but says she’s fine now… The Cherry Bomb & Pepper Parks v Jewells Malone & Gregory Iron match from Sunday’s Smash Wrestling show was a handicap match for a while after Parks attacked Malone during her entrance, forcing her to get treatment in the back. Jewells came back for the end but it was for naught as Cherry and Pepper got the win… Rebecca Payne is the final competitor announced for next month’s IWA Mid South Queen of the Deathmatches tournament. She won the last tournament back in 2008, defeating Mickie Knuckles in the final in a Fans Bring The Weapons, Taipei Deathmatch. Knuckles’ first round opponent will be Kiki Rose in a barefoot Four Corners of Pain Deathmatch where there will be boxes filled with light tubes, mousetraps, thumbtacks and rubbing alcohol.
Kyoko Kimura & Alpha Female retained the Goddesses of Stardom Titles on Saturday by defeating Mayu Iwatani & Miho Wakizawa… Kyoko Kimura & Command Bolshoi won the vacant JWP Tag Team/Daily Sports Tag Team Championship on Sunday, defeating Rabbit Miu & Tsukushi… Io Shirai is a double champion in Stardom. The World of Stardom titleholder defeated Natsuki*Taiyo earlier today to win the High Speed Championship… Maki Narumiya & Risa Sera retained the Ice Ribbon International Ribbon Tag Team Titles earlier today, beating Meari Naito & Neko Nitta.
Kasey Owens offered an update on her foot injury which she suffered. She fractured the 5th Metatarsil on her left foot and will have to wear a brace for another month, depending on her recovery. If it doesn’t heal within that time, she may be sidelined for between six months to a year. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that… Kay Lee Ray will defend the Fierce Females Scottish Championship against Sammii Jayne on June 8… Rhia O’Reilly and Amazon Ayesha Ray were featured on an episode of London 360, talking about the rise of women’s wrestling – and some of Ringbelles’ photos were used in the piece… O’Reilly faces Addy Starr this Saturday for LCW Roses in a rematch from their contest on the promotion’s debut show back in January. Elsewhere on the card, Amazon takes on Faith Lehaine and Nixon faces Nikki Storm.
