Former WWE and ECW personality Dawn Marie seems to have a good heart. Setting up Wrestlers Rescue in 2008 (and the subsequent Pro Wrestlers Relief) in 2009, her goal was to make life easier for wrestlers with medical issues to help them pay their bills – a common problem for wrestlers outside of WWE who may not be able to secure the proper insurance needed to cover their ailments.
In the last week or so, her charity has received a battering from James “Kamala” Harris, who has had both of his legs amputated due to complications stemming from diabetes and high blood pressure. He claims that Wrestlers Rescue and Boston-based independent wrestling promotion the Millennium Wrestling Federation promised to help him out financially, and never did so, calling Dawn Marie “no good” and accusing her of keeping the money that was raised for him.
Wrestlers Rescue has not had the best of reputations in its short existence, but following this high-profile attack on her work, Dawn Marie decided to go public with all the details.
In the two part upload (which you can watch in full by clicking here and here), she goes into detail about the campaigns for Dr Death Steve Williams, Jimmy Snuka and Jerry Lynn, as well as talking about a “smear campaign” when she said she was unable to help former WWF ring crew member Michael Porter with rent, as it was earmarked for wrestlers and he didn’t qualify either as a wrestler or that the money was not earmarked for rent – which she claims led to her losing a book deal and a TV show.
As it pertains to Kamala, she went into great detail with the latest controversy.
About a month and a half ago, we began a campaign for him… on July 18, he called me and we got talking and I just had the feeling that he needed some money. I told him I would send out a cheque for $500… and he said ‘great’… on the 21st, I mailed the letter. Sometime between the 21st and the 26th, he received the letter, opened it, took out the cheque, put it into a new envelope, sealed it, and mailed it back to me via certified mail.
On the 26th he mailed it out to us. On the 30th, they tried to deliver it back to me, certified mail. On the 31st, James Harris decided to put out a video stating that he never received any money from us, that I was garbage and a lot of very ugly things. I don’t know why someone would be so ugly to someone who is trying to help them.
Her agent Michael Mupo also tweeted pictures to support these claims, notably of the cheque and the letter which was returned back to them. Former ECW and WWE star the Blue Meanie claimed that the handwriting on the cheque is the same as on the envelope, but a quick look will confirm that’s not the case.
The evidence would appear that Dawn Marie is telling the truth, and she did what she promised. Whether it is the full story or not is open to suggestion, as the reality usually falls somewhere inbetween the two sides of the story, but there is a lot to suggest that Wrestlers Rescue held up its side of the bargain. In addition, a look at the Financial section of the charity’s website shows proof of donations to Steve Williams, which adds credence to that situation too.
As mentioned at the start, I believe that Dawn Marie’s heart is in the right place, and she wants to help wherever she can, and I applaud her for that. However, for such a young charity to receive such a negative stigma – deserved or not – is not a healthy situation, and is a reputation that it could do without. In the video, she discusses how she was unable to help with Jerry Lynn’s medical situation to a great extent, and that the Cauliflower Alley Club helped out with a donation.
The thing about the CAC is that it has been around since 1965, has a sterling record and has prestige and heritage on its side. Its annual conventions are big draws for wrestlers from the past, present and future, and appears to be better equipped to provide help to broken-down wrestlers via its Benevolent Fund. Perhaps it would be best for Dawn Marie to assist the CAC in what it does if she wants to help, rather than try to run a similar project which already has a stigma attached to it.
Last week, we gave a mention to the new all-women off-shoot being presented by Pro Wrestling Syndicate called Bombshell Ladies Of Wrestling – or BLOW – and how it will present its first show on iPPV on October 11 from Rahway, NJ. Now, October 11 is a Thursday, which is a curious day to stage a show, but the curious instances don’t stop there.
For example, BLOW’s first show will feature eight matches comprising the first round of the BLOW Title Tournament. That means 16 women, which means they are hoping for at least four of these iPPVs, if each round is going to be on a separate show, though you could possibly put the semi-final and the final on the same card without a problem. Over the past week, the promotion has introduced a new name for the tournament – all of which is hosted by former WWE Diva Search winner Ashley Massaro – with varying levels of enthusiasm from the Ringbelles team. Most of the names appear to be based on either the east coast or are from the Midwest, with some familiar names, and ones which required some Googling. With that, let’s see who’s been announced as of press time.
Starting with the more familiar ones, we have Alexxis Nevaeh (AKA Lexxus), Annie Social, Becky Bayless and Brittney Savage as the experienced, well-travelled competitors. Nevaeh, Social and Savage are no problems for us, but we still contend that Bayless’ true strengths lie as a manager and delivering promos, as her in-ring work does not click. She has the best will in the world, but it doesn’t seem to come together. However, she has plenty of ring time over the years, so there is the chance it could come good on October 11.
The other names are slightly more unknown, obscure or brand new. For example, there is Miss Adiva, who is a former ring girl for Purely Obsessed Wrestling World, based out of the Chicago area. She is the daughter of former WCW and WWF competitor Diceman Ronnie Vegas, only got into the business in September last year, and debuted in March for IWF Pro Wrestling Chicago. Another relatively inexperienced name is Scarlett Bordeaux, who is also Chicago-based, working for AAW. Her profile claims she has been “tearing things up around the Midwest for the past several years”, but she only recently made her wrestling debut, and to date, has fewer than half a dozen matches under her belt.
It must also be said that both Adiva and Bordeaux are massively attractive, which helps on posters to sell tickets. However, it can be argued that putting these women in a ring to wrestle on iPPV for the world to see is slightly unfair to them. Neither of them is going to be the finished article by any stretch of the imagination, and viewing audiences of whatever genre can be pretty judgemental. It would be a crushing shame for either of them to be thrown out there and make a hash of it, especially at a time in their career when they are likely to make mistakes, you would expect them to, given their inexperience. These formative matches are the sort that you may record to keep for yourself, but you may not necessarily want to be judged on.
There is the counter-argument that maybe the pressure of performing on a live show that is being broadcast around the world may focus them. After all, Jemma Palmer’s debut match was on the first Pro Wrestling: EVE show, and even though she had a broken arm and shouldn’t have been wrestling, it wasn’t a disaster, and that is mostly down to Jetta leading her through it. Similarly, Becky James’ first pro match was at a ChickFight card – again against Jetta – and was a remarkable effort for someone who hasn’t trained for a number of months because of a serious head injury. Should Bordeaux or Adiva be given the correct opponent to work with who will help them through and work within their limitations, it could be fine. That will depend on the booking of the brackets.
They should be given the benefit of the doubt though. They could surprise and impress everyone, so let’s not judge them before seeing what they can do.
The other name that has been announced is a complete opposite to the previous two in that she claims she has been wrestling for seven years – Ivy Fit. Immediately, my mind went back to the claims of Michelle Deighton, who on last year’s revival of Tough Enough, claimed that she had been wrestling for 11 years, but was a clueless mess in the ring. A quick bit of research found some videos of her wrestling – one of the more notable matches was against Mercedes KV – and some results indicated that her in-ring appearances are somewhat sporadic at the start, with 11 matches between 2005 and 2007, and none in 2008. Four more appearances follow in 2009 and five the following year, with bookings increasing in 2011 and 2012. That may not be a comprehensive list of everywhere that she’s wrestled, but even if it only half of her bookings since 2005, it’s not a huge amount. It is times like these when you see why some wrestlers measure experience by the number of matches, rather than by a time span.
Again, this does not suggest that she is a bad wrestler, just that the numbers are a little misleading. BLOW is likely Ivy Fit’s biggest opportunity to rise to another level, so she will likely be prepared for it. Unknown does not mean bad, but it does mean that the money you may spend on the iPPV may be more speculative of a great show rather than a sure thing.
So far, it seems as if BLOW is marketing the show on the looks of the women involved, as all of them have their own beauty and charm. However, this event may need a few more safe hands announced over the coming days to make sure that things go smoothly. Hopefully we will see those names added to the mix.
Incidentally, if you Google “BLOW Wrestling”, you get links to a porn film called Busty Ladies Of Oil Wrestling. Just saying.
A quick shout out to a fallen women’s wrestling website. North Starz, which focussed on female grapplers in Canada has shut down.
A fantastic resource for learning about the women Canada has to offer, it featured interviews with wrestlers, detailed reviews and coverage of matches (along with some excellent photos) and was a great spotlight for them in the same way that NHB Girls does for Canada. It is a shame that it is gone, and will be missed. Hopefully someone will look to pick up the ball and set up a new version and showcase what women wrestlers in Canada can do.
Got any news, results or upcoming events that you want to tell everyone about? Are you a female wrestler looking to tell us about upcoming bookings? Are you a fan who went to a show and saw a match, and would like to tell others about it – what you liked, what you didn’t and would like to encourage others to check it out for themselves?

She is likely to be back in America later this year though, as she is featured as part of the SHINE roster… NWA World Women’s Champion Tasha Simone will defend the belt on September 8 against Pandora.
Someone put graffiti all over a Wrestling New Classic poster and the culprit hasn’t been found.
