In Video: Leva Bates… as a heel?!
I’ve been watching this TV show called Doomsday Preppers, where people get ready for the downfall of society as we know it. One of the theories is that there is going to be a “pole shift“, which means the magnetic field of the North and South Poles will flip, and will cause a sudden shift in the continents, triggering enormous earthquakes and rapid climate change. Essentially, it would change the world as we know it.
Similar shifts are taking place in the wrestling world, with women who have seemingly sat on one side of the tracks for a long time are sampling life on the other. Nicole Matthews has been wrestling as a babyface alongside her teammates in The Riot in Elite Canadian Championship Wrestling, while her fellow Canadian NINJA Portia Perez is teaming with former rival Rachel Summerlyn in Texas as part of Anarchy Championship Wrestling. Down in Florida, lovable babyface Leva Bates is exploring her dark side, not only by being a henchwoman of Aces And Eights in TNA, attacking Sting and Hulk Hogan, but also in Southern Championship Wrestling. I mean, just look at that photo…
On September 22, Bates challenged Santana Garrett in Sanford for the SCW Women’s Championship. Dressed as The Joker, she was the antagonist in the match – but did she win the gold? Watch the match below and find out.
One a side note, both Bates and Garrett have tough tests later this month at SHINE 4. Leva faces Jessicka Havok, while Santana wrestles Mercedes Martinez.
