Last night, Cleveland’s Absolute Intense Wrestling presented their “Battle of the Sexes” special show from their traditional home base of Turner’s Hall. The full nine match card were all singles intergender bouts, headlined by the steel cage bout between Veda Scott and Gregory Iron – a match which appears to have delivered on all of the hype with a major blow-off to the long-running feud.
The Battle of the Sexes show was the evening part of a double header for AIW, who also presented a card entitled “All In” during the afternoon. In Ringbelles-related results from that show, the AIW Women’s Champion Athena successfully defended her championship against Heidi Lovelace, while Seleziya Sparx pinned Alexia Nicole with a gorilla press lift into a stunner. Alexia Nicole ended up being added to the BotS show as a replacement for the previously announced Kimber Lee.
All results are supplied by great man Dave Muscarella.
