My Name Is… Pollyanna

English grappler Pollyanna has had a big few months, and she wanted to shout about it, so she gave Ringbelles a message to request some interview time as part of My Name Is… and of course, we said yes.

As well as undertaking her first overseas wrestling trip to Spain in September to take on Rachel Evans, Pollyanna is also involved in the current British Women’s Championship tournament in NWA Hammerlock. She discusses her beginnings, who has been influential in bringing her out of her shell, Pro Wrestling: EVE, Extreme World Wrestling, and how she is not just fighting against women – she is fighting FOR them too.

Fight Like A Girl: Skarlett

More interviews from Ringbelles, I hear you say? Oh yes, dear reader…

Ahead of her “first time ever” match against Sweet Saraya Knight, the Extreme World Wrestling Women’s Champion Skarlett talks to Fight Like A Girl about her feelings concerning the match and her opponent. We also go into further depth about EWW as a whole, the importance of strong characters, and how it promotes female wrestling (also on the card for October 15 in Hastings, England is a match between Lucy Clayden and Pollyanna).

She also discusses the relationship EWW shares with Saraya’s home promotion, World Association of Wrestling, and its sister offshoot, World Association of Women’s Wrestling, which returns on November 19 in Norwich, England, headlined by Saraya v Allison Danger. Throw in that we also talk about her sideline business, Killer Cupcakes, and that’s a lot of topics for you to listen to her talk about…

Ringbelles Roundup (7 June 2011)

The future of women’s wrestling in Britain was looking bright. In May 2010, Pro Wrestling: EVE debuted with a lot of fanfare, announcing a working relationship with World Association of Wrestling, meaning Sweet Saraya and her daughter Britani Knight would be part of the proceedings, along with other WAW talent Destiny and Amazon (and later, Liberty and Melodi). The partnership seemed to be working well, with training seminars being held with WAW, and EVE making Britani its first Champion two months ago.

Fast forward 13 months, and things are looking much muddier.

Last Saturday, less than two hours before Britani would defend the EVE title against Jenny Sjodin at an XWA Wrestling show in Morecambe, Saraya took to her Facebook to say that the relationship with WAW and EVE was being permanently severed, and would not be healed. In addition, it also said that WAW talent would no longer be on EVE shows.

While our Twitter exploded with requests for information, both from fans and wrestlers themselves, I was sat in the crowd at Morecambe unaware, much like EVE promoter Dann Read and the participants in the match. As it turned out, not even Saraya’s daughter knew that this decision was going to be made, nor that it had been made public and was being discussed.

There was no massive incident that caused the split, but more of a lot of little niggles that eventually became too much. Britani travelled to Morecambe against the wishes of family members as she was ill, with swollen legs and voice gone, presumably still suffering the after-effects of the glandular fever that she wrestled with on the EVE Championship weekend. According to Saraya, she did so because of promises made by Dann Read that he wanted to get her booked all around the country and get a number of successful defences under her belt – thereby increasing EVE’s national exposure. It seems that when Saraya learned that Britani would be dropping the title that night, it went against what they were told would be happening with Britani, and saw it as a betrayal of trust. We must point out that it isn’t down to Britani being upset with the booking decision and refusing to drop the title – it apparently is down to promises being made then then reneged on.

Saraya also went on to say that she would be reviving World Association of Women’s Wrestling – a promotion which promoted a number of cards between 2006 and 2009. (more…)
