Today is IWA: Mid South‘s “Royal Day of Death”, as the Midwest promotion present tournaments for both ‘Queen of the Death Matches’ and ‘King of the Death Matches’ from The Rustic Frog in New Albany, Indiana.
The ‘Queen’ tournament features a mix of regular IWA:MS names such as Heidi Lovelace, Thunderkitty and Randi West alongside debuts for the likes of Jewells Malone (replacing the injured Mickie Knuckles), Hudson Envy and hardcore luchadora Ludark Shaitan, and it takes up the afternoon slot on this ‘Royal Day’.
