Fans at SHIMMER‘s most recent DVD tapings got to see Cherry Bomb‘s heel schtick alongside Kimber Lee, though she has been a riot in Combat Zone Wrestling for a while now. With a multitude of great facial expressions, mouthy comments and bitchy antics, she’s great at getting people to be annoyed with her. However, her heel ways have been something that the recently-married Torontarian has been doing for a while – and that’s what this Retro is all about.
This week’s match from the past is from June 21, 2008′s Great North Wrestling show in Hawkesbury, ON, Canada, with Cherry Bomb teaming up with former SHIMMERer Miss Danyah taking on Misty Haven and Josianne The Pussycat. As you can tell from the screengrab, there is a fair deal of crowd work, so click the jump and watch for yourself. (more…)
As you may well know, Canadian grappler Cat Power recently moved from Windsor, Ontario to Vancouver, BC – and as she’s kinda putting wrestling on the back-burner once again in order to focus on her new life, she requested a chance to come back on the site and talk about some of the people who have helped her in her career to date. A chance to close the book on one chapter of her life, if you like. We’d never turn down a request from Cat Power, so we duly obliged – the only thing is… Cat’s a talkative sort, so what was planned as maybe 20 minutes ended up clocking in at about 45 minutes. So, kick off your shoes, sit back in your comfy chair and let Cat Power update you on what she’s up to and lay out thanks to some of the trainers, bookers, opponents and friends who she’s met along the way.

Did you know that Natalya competed for the WILD Championship at one time?
Don’t be confused – we’re not talking about the West Coast-based World Independent Ladies Division, which has Winter as its current titleholder – we’re on about the still-active Wrestling’s Independent Ladies Division, which is the name given to the women in Great Canadian Wrestling, which has promoted cards in southern Ontario since 2005.
Since the title was launched on November 18, 2006, it has seen wrestlers such as Cherry Bomb, Miss Danyah, April Hunter, Portia Perez and PJ Tyler (AKA Courtney Rush) hold the championship, and has seen female talent from across Canada wrestle for the promotion. The current champion is Gabriella Vanderpool, who defeated Anthony Darko (that’s right, a guy) to become the titleholder. It has reportedly helped to rejuvenate the division after a quiet period.
