Christmas time usually brings around the wrestling shows with puns in their names – Season’s Beatings being the most popular one, though I wonder why nobody ever picks Violent Night – and next Saturday’s show presented by NWA Ring Warriors and its all-female off-shoot Battling Bombshells has one of its own, entitled Bombshells & Jingle Bells. However with hindsight, adding the ‘e’ to Bells would have made it even stronger, but that’s just one writer’s opinion.

Emanating from Hollywood, FL, the promotions are getting into the Christmas spirit by donating 100% of the profits to the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, so the organisers are no doubt hoping for a large crowd for the event, which is headlined by an NWA World Women’s Championship rematch.

On November 17, La Rosa Negra challenged Kacee Carlisle for the belt at NWA Coastal‘s event in Bayville, NJ, though was unsuccessful in wresting the gold away. However, the match was deemed a critical success, and La Rosa Negra was granted a second crack at the title at Bombshells and Jingle Bells. Click the jump to see Carlisle offering her thoughts on the match (honestly, it’s a top promo which sells the match really well), as well as footage of some of the other matches announced for the show…

Elsewhere on the card, Santana Garrett takes on La Morena after sacking her manager Fabulous Frank and seeing him switch over to Morena. In tag team action, Su Yung and Puerto Rican Amazona face the new tandem of Silvie Silver and Melissa Coates – collectively known as Silver and Gold – while the increasingly impressive Leva Bates wrestles Sienna DuVall, and Bates hypes up the match in her classical, geeky way…

For a promotion to launch its first full-blown show – previously, the bulk of Battling Bombshells matches were guest offerings on Ring Warriors cards – at a time of year when finances may be stretched is a gamble, but when you look at the flipside, in that it is an opportunity to enjoy some wrestling before the chaos of the holidays and that it is all in the aid of charity, it may do quite well. Having said that, it is always a gamble to host your first show, especially when it is all-women, so we wish NWA Ring Warriors and Battling Bombshells the best of luck.
