ArenaChicks promoter Amber O’Neal has revealed the card for the promotion’s first ever show, which is due to take place at midnight on Thursday August 11 as part of the Insane Clown Posse’s 4-day long Gathering of the Juggalos 2011 event at Cave-In-Rock, IL.
Throughout 2011, O’Neal has worked a number of the Juggalo Championship Wrestling shows, and has formed a strong working relationship with the ICP, which has led to her gaining a slot at a festival which pulls in an average of more than 100,000 fans every year.
Previously, the matches compiled for the debut volume of ArenaChicks were amalgamated from a number of different shows hosted by CWF Mid-Atlantic Wrestling, based in Burlington, NC. This will be the first full-blown card put together by the promotion, with five matches announced for the twilight show, and it looks to be a strong lineup:
Amber O’Neal v Jessicka Havok
Sassy Stephie v Brittany Force v Allysin Kay
Angel Orsini v Josie (Sojo Bolt in TNA, and Lady JoJo in OVW)
Epiphany & Jenny Star v Taryn Shay & CJ Lane
Jazz v Izza Belle Smothers
The start time of the show, coupled with the spectators themselves will be interesting. GOTJ is a blend of concerts, wrestling, games, contests, autograph sessions, karaoke, and seminars with artists. It could be wrestling fans that watch, or it could be a larger crowd which includes passers-by, curious souls and people who just want to catch a glimpse of some women in tight clothing fighting each other in a ring. For that reason, the reaction of the audience could be a fairly unique one. We hope that it is a huge success, and it is added to a future ArenaChicks DVD.
In addition to the ArenaChicks show, another female announced for GOTJ is Chyna, who is booked as part of a massive tag team match on the Friday pitting the New World Order members of Scott Hall, Kevin Nash and Sean “Syxx” Waltman against D-Generation X members Road Dogg, Billy Gunn, and Chyna. However, given the shaky history of a number of the participants involved – most notably Hall and Chyna – it may be best to not count any chickens before they hatch. On the flip side if the match takes place, it should be one hell of a spectacle.
