Full disclosure – we’re fans of Taeler Hendrix here at Ringbelles, so we were pretty disappointed when she went somewhat quiet for a while following our Women Of Wrestling Podcast with her 11 months ago. Sure, she was competing for places like Xtreme Intense Championship Wrestling, Queens Of Combat and Classic Championship Wrestling but her profile was being kept somewhat low. However, the 25-year old has emerged again over the summer with a new look and style to help evolve her character.
It kicked off at the Smash Wrestling CanUSA Classic card, and then continued in Cleveland, OH at the weekend. As mentioned by Dave Muscarella in his wrap-up of who impressed at Saturday’s Absolute Intense Wrestling Girls Night Out tapings, Hendrix emerged from being a bit-part player to being a genuine attraction with a win over Xandra Bale and a defeat at the hands of Mary Elizabeth Monroe, with her character shining through – something which we have commended Taeler for in the past.
We’re happy to see Hendrix flourishing again after a disappointing TNA run and her departure from Ohio Valley Wrestling seeing her under the radar for a while, but it seems that the time away has been worth it, as she has a fresh heel persona – though we can’t ignore how well she works as a babyface too. That’s why we’ve posted a match between she and Alexxis Nevaeh from Lucky Pro Wrestling‘s June 20 show in Hudson, MA. Have a watch, and get reacquainted with the One Girl Revolution.
