In Video: Canadian Conflict

Leah Von Dutch Jewells MaloneThe busy wrestling scene in Canada is a great place for an aspiring grappler to work. With many promotions offering a range of different ethea, it also allows wrestlers to work their characters for specific audiences.

Take Leah Von Dutch for example. Depending on which territory she is in, she alters her character to generate the right reaction from the crowd. Likewise, Jewells Malone – who has a penchant for hardcore wrestling – can work the family-friendly angle or can get downright vicious depending on the show.

This contest between these two Ontarians takes place in Kitchener from Conflict Wrestling‘s show on March 10. It’s been offered up as a free match to advertise the promotion – so click the jump and see for yourself. (more…)


Guest Column: An Alternate Take on WSU’s Mutiny

Havok as WSU ChampEditor’s note: While we don’t usually do this kind of thing, when we received this well written and argued review of this past weekend’s WSU Mutiny show in our inbox from a fan in attendance who said he had trouble using the comment section on our original live coverage, we thought it was worth a column all of its own. Coincidentally, if you’ve got an interest in contributing to the site going forward, we have an idea in mind… keep an eye on the site in the week ahead. Without further ado, our thanks to reader Eric Gall for submitting this alternate take…

I was there live and haven’t seen the show on VOD yet, so here’s my thoughts seeing it live, with a few days to let it sink in…

This was my first weekend of WSU, having gone to Voorhees before, (and before that to Deer Park and Boonton), but I decided to take in Secret Show #3 as well as Mutiny. I thought Friday night’s show was every bit as good as Full Steam Ahead back in October last year. There wasn’t a bad match, and the intimate atmosphere elevated everything.

Something happened between Friday’s show and Saturday, though. While I’m seeing that many people feel that Mutiny was a great show, possibly the best WSU’s put on, I enjoyed this one the least out of any of the new regime’s run of the company, starting in October of ’12. (more…)


WSU Mutiny iPPV – Jessicka Havok vs Alpha Female for the WSU Championship! Last minute changes!

Alpha Female Jessicka Havok WSUAfter last night’s Secret Show #3, where Jessicka Havok successfully retained her WSU World Championship against Shanna, the force of nature known as J-Hav goes one-on-one with the monstrous Alpha Female, who defeated two women in a row last night – and although it was never advertised as such during the build-up to the show, the match has now been confirmed as being for Havok’s WSU World Championship.

Although WSU has already tweeted today that there would be other “changes” to the announced show, we’re hopefully still expecting to see Athena vs LuFisto for the #1 contendership for the WSU Championship, but it seems that injuries to both Veda Scott & Allysin Kay means that their planned matches with Jenny Rose and the Midwest Militia Tag Team Title defence of Allysin Kay & Sassy Stephie against C.U.N.T. (Kimber Lee & Annie Social) respectively appear off the book.

You can still order the live worldwide iPPV via CZWiPPV.com, but otherwise join us after the cut for live results as they come in. (more…)


Review: WSU Secret Show #2 – Shanna triumphs in J-Cup, Nikki Storm impresses as a babyface

Shanna by Ichiban DrunkTonight at an undisclosed location (likely to once again be the CZW Training School), Women Superstars Uncensored will be presenting their third “Secret Show” in front of a select group of fans. Tonight’s show is particularly interesting as it features a defence of the WSU World Championship by Jessicka Havok against “Portugal’s Perfect Athlete” Shanna. Bumped from tomorrow’s “Mutiny” iPPV in favour of a Havok vs Alpha Female match, Shanna’s title challenge will be the biggest match so far in this fledgling series of shows, which are made available exclusively through StreamWSU.com. The first show from last August (which we reviewed here) was infamous for being the show where Athena picked up the injury which sidelined her for the rest of the year, but was otherwise an interesting, intimate, but ultimately very low budget show – and a nice bit of bonus content for the streaming service. Therefore, before we get the results of Secret Show #3, we’ve gone back to check out Secret Show #2 from October 2013 – featuring the “International J-Cup” tournament – a one-night, eight women elimination tournament. Let’s see how it stacks up. (more…)


Stew’s 2013 highlights

P1010060The first thing I think when I look back over my own personal memories of the last year of women’s wrestling is, as usual, my regular trips to SHIMMER live events in Berwyn, IL. I can’t say enough about the whole experience, but if you’ve ever even vaguely considered making the pilgrimage, DO IT. I believe this year represented my tenth and eleventh trips there, and yeah, I’m still keen to return in the coming year and still love the whole experience. Dave Prazak has often described SHIMMER as a DVD product (and it basically still is), but for me, (and I think a lot of the people I see returning time and time again), it’s become live product more than anything else, and it’s like getting together with your friends from all over the world twice a year. They’re long weekends for the fans, but they’ve ultimately given me such great memories. From seeing the return from injuries of the likes of Serena Deeb & Madison Eagles, to seeing people like Kimber Lee wrestling live for the first time, to seeing Nikki Storm get over so huge on her first trip there, to openly weeping in public as Allison Danger wrestled her last match – all things that will live long in the memory. Sure, the October taping was beset by a number of integral people missing for various reasons, but I’m still glad I was there (Kimber Bombs!!), and only underlines how much talent there is to return in 2014.

Review: AIW Girls Night Out 10 (October 6, 2013)

Kay chokes Veda GNO Ichiban DrunkFollowing the model established by SHIMMER, Ohio’s Absolute Intense Wrestling experimented with the “two tapings in one day” format on October 6th, following up the afternoon Girls Night Out 9 event with Girls Night Out 10 later that same evening featuring (mostly) the same cast. If anything, Girls Night Out 10 could be considered the “bigger” of the two shows as it featured the highly touted AIW Absolute Women’s Championship match between Allysin Kay and Veda Scott. Attendance didn’t appear to pick up any for the evening show though, as it was – as far as I could see anyway – the same small (but vocal) crowd from GNO9. Regardless, I think AIW are considering the double taping idea a success (unlike NCW:Femmes Fatales, who tried it once for FFX and moved back to the single tapings thereafter), so this may be the new norm for the Girls Night Out brand. Apart from the big AK/Veda match, GNO10 also featured a rematch from SHINE between Nikki Storm and Mia Yim, an impromptu Anything Goes match between Jenny Rose and Mickie Knuckles, and the continuance of stories set up on GNO. Let’s see how it went, shall we?

Results
1. Kimber Lee pinned Santana Garrett following a Ganso Bomb.
2. Jasmin pinned Jody D’Milo following a second rope moonsault.
3. Sassy Stephie defeated Jewells Malone via arm submission.
4. Melanie Cruise pinned Angel Dust following the Cruise Control.
5. The Social Network (Annie Social & Heidi Lovelace) beat Leva Bates & Xandra Bale with a powerbomb/backstabber combination.
6. Three Way Match: Leah Von Dutch (w/ The Duke) won over Savannah Summers & Shanna when Von Dutch pinned Summers after Summers had been laid out by The Duke.
7. No Disqualification: Mickie Knuckles pinned Jenny Rose after suplexing her through a table.
8. Nikki Storm pinned Mia Yim with the Eye of the Storm.
9. AIW Absolute Women’s Title: Allysin Kay made Veda Scott submit to a chair-assisted armbar to retain the title. (more…)


Review: AIW Girls Night Out 9 (October 6, 2013)

Leah Von Dutch GNO Ichiban DrunkAs Bellatrix was kicking off the recent Fight Season in the UK, Absolute Intense Wrestling in Cleveland, OH were getting the ball rolling Stateside with a SHIMMER-esque double taping at Turner’s Hall under their “Girl’s Night Out” banner. Built around the rivalry between AIW mainstays – longtime Absolute Women’s Champion Allysin Kay and her #1 Contender Veda Scott (they headlined both this and the evening Girls Night Out 10 event), AIW also welcomed first time guests in the form of Scotland’s Nikki Storm, Portugal’s Perfect Athlete Shanna, Australia’s Savannah Summers, a handful of Ontario-based Canadians and offered an AIW debut to Santana Garrett – giving AIW its strongest women’s division show yet (on paper, at least). Kudos to Smart Mark Video for turning around production so quickly on both shows, making them available for download approximately a fortnight after the show happened. We’re reviewing the mp4 digital download version of the show here, but you can pick up the show either as a digital download, a streaming VOD or on physical media all via the SMV store.

Results
1. Annie Social (w/ Sammy Geodollno & Heidi Lovelace) pinned Jewells Malone with a Stunner.
2. Santana Garrett beat Jenny Rose via submission.
3. Leva Bates & Xandra Bale beat Jody D’Milo & Jasmin when Bates pinned D’Milo following a Superhero Kick.
– Post match, The Social Network of Annie Social, Heidi Lovelace & Sammy Geodollno attacked Bates & Bale.
4. Three Way Match: Angel Dust won over Melanie Cruise & Heidi Lovelace when she pinned Cruise with a schoolgirl roll-up.
5. Leah Von Dutch pinned Mickie Knuckles after The Duke knocked out Knuckles with a punch.
6. Savannah Summers pinned Sassy Stephie with a roll-up counter to the Kiss My Sass.
7. Taeler Hendrix pinned Marti Belle.
8. Kimber Lee made Nikki Storm submit to a cross armbreaker.
9. Dream Partners Tag Match: Allysin Kay & Mia Yim beat Veda Scott & Shanna when Yim pinned Shanna after Kay had chased Scott to the back.

WSU “Blood and Thunder” iPPV results – Havok defends against Lexxus, Saraya Knight debuts

Saraya chokes MickieIt’s a big day for Women Superstars Uncensored today, as they put on an iPPV from their usual home base of the Flyers Skate Zone in Vorhees, NJ. It’s an important show as not only does it feature a WSU World Title defence over a year in the making, the full WSU debuts of international talents like Nikki Storm and Saraya Knight (the latter of whom takes on Mickie Knuckles in a No Disqualification match), but will also apparently feature an announcement of a new owner taking a stake in WSU – a new owner who will help secure the future of the company and open up more international doors.

In addition, we also have what might well be the sleeper match of the night as Allysin Kay takes on Kimber Lee, and more from the new generation of WSU talent like Santana Garrett, Barbi Hayden, Jewells Malone and more. You can still order the show (which includes 14 days of VOD access) at CZWiPPV.com, or join us after the cut for results as they come in. (more…)


WSU Secret Show #2 – International J Cup 2013 results

Barbi HaydenWe’re getting quite WSU-centric this weekend here on Ringbelles, what with a preview of this afternoon’s ‘Blood and Thunder’ iPPV, an impromptu podcast with WSU owner Drew Cordeiro about a believed new co-owner coming in today and a review of the first WSU Secret Show on StreamWSU – and while we’ll be back later with live results of the iPPV, we’ve first got to cover the second Secret Show, taped last night at the CZW School. Although nothing was announced beforehand (it was a secret, after all), it turned out to be an eight woman single elimination tournament – an “International J Cup”, in fact.

The Women’s J-Cup has actually been an annual tournament held by WSU under the old ownership, dating back to 2008 (former winners include Mercedes Martinez, Angel Orsini, Alicia and Brittney Savage twice), but hadn’t taken place under the new management yet. Competitors in the international field included two Europeans (Shanna & Nikki Storm) and two Canadians (Jody D’Milo & Jewells Malone) along with four Americans (Santana Garrett, Barbi Hayden, Jenny Rose and Kimber Lee). A pretty strong field. Let’s see what went down. (more…)


WSU Secret Show #1 – Santana Garrett vs Taeler Hendrix highlights a mixed bag show; Athena’s injury

SantanaOn August 9th, Women Superstars Uncensored debuted a new idea. A “Secret Show” held the night before the Uncensored Rumble iPPV – a show recorded, not for DVD release, but as a bonus (or incentive, if you will) for fans who subscribed to their new StreamWSU service. The show featured most of the women who were due to compete at Uncensored Rumble the next day and were in town already. It’s actually a pretty neat idea – WSU get some extra content for their streaming service without the expense of flying in talent twice over, and it’s a new show for the fans to enjoy. Given its “intimate” nature (very small crowd, very small training centre style building with nothing but bare walls on two sides of the ring), it’s not a show that reeks “quality” to your first time WSU fan – but if you’re already subscribing to StreamWSU, you’re already a pretty committed fan and will appreciate some new content regardless of the look.

However, the show is already infamous as the show which resulted in an injury to Athena in the main event – an injury which took her out of the following night’s WSU World Title match and looks set to keep her out at least until the new year… meaning the show sorta became much more newsworthy than it necessarily should’ve been. With the next Secret Show scheduled for tonight (the night before Blood And Thunder tomorrow), and the recent addition of the first Secret Show to the StreamWSU content list, I figured I’d take a look.

WSU Blood And Thunder – what’s whetting our appetite?

WSU Saraya Knight Mickie KnucklesThis Saturday sees a Women Superstars Uncensored Championship match which is a year in the making. Ever since October 13 last year, Lexxus has been claiming that she is the uncrowned champion after losing a 3-way title match at Full Steam Ahead where Jessicka Havok beat she and Alicia, though it was the latter challenger who took the fall. Claiming she was never beaten, she ran her mouth claiming she deserved another crack at the title. In two days at Blood and Thunder in Voorhees, NJ, the former WSU Tag Team Champion gets her opportunity to put up or shut up after beating Nevaeh at August’s Uncensored Rumble VI show to become the top contender.

As for Havok, it’s her first title defence since February’s An Ultraviolent Affair event where she defeated Athena to retain the championship. Since then, she has defeated Sami Callihan (who substituted for an injured LuFisto) at Queen and King of the Ring in May and missed the Uncensored Rumble due to travel issues.

Considering Lexxus’ big talking and the amount of time since Havok’s last defence, we’re expecting the main event to be an entertaining outing, and it’s one of the big matches we’re looking forward to at Blood and Thunder. Let’s take a look at the others… (more…)


AIW Girls Night Out 9 & 10: Allysin Kay & Veda Scott battle twice, Nikki Storm debuts, plus more!

AIW Girls Night OutFight Season is underway with aplomb. Earlier today, Bellatrix kickstarted proceedings with their Bellatrix 7 show, featuring an interpromotional series of matches between Bellatrix and SHIMMER – but even as that show was wrapping up, Ohio’s Absolute Intense Wrestling was already underway with their double DVD tapings of Girls Night Out 9 & 10.

Headlined by the ongoing rivalry between Absolute Women’s Champion Allysin Kay and challenger Veda Scott, the two were to meet twice across the tapings, once in a “dream partners” tag match on GNO 9 and finally, conclusively for the title as the main event of GNO 10. Wa talked about the show with Allysin Kay a few days ago on the Women of Wrestling Podcast here on the site, but you can also check out some really strong interview videos uploaded (Veda | Allysin) to YouTube in the last few days also to get a taste of the rivalry.

Full results from both shows after the cut. (more…)


Athena injured at Secret Show; off today’s iPPV – UPDATE: Havok also off show, citing travel issues

Athena by GildaIn a terrible case of sod’s law, ‘The Wrestling Goddess’ Athena suffered an injury at last night’s WSU Secret Show. Reports have Athena taking a bad landing on a German Suplex which resulted in her throwing up post show and going to the hospital for X-Rays. All we’ve had confirmed by WSU (on twitter) is that “Nothing is broken, but she’s hurt. Needless to say, Athena will not be wrestling Jessicka Havok or participating in the Uncensored Rumble” and that “She is experiencing numbness in her left arm after landing on her left shoulder/collarbone”. The Secret Show (which turned out to be at the CZW training school) had already been missing Shanna, who had picked up an injury earlier in the day doing customs – but we’ve had confirmation that she’s going to be good to go both in today’s Uncensored Rumble and at CZW’s show thereafter.

This, naturally, puts WSU in a pickle ahead of this afternoon’s iPPV. Their main event is toast, and Jessicka Havok is without an opponent. The reason I called the Athena injury “sod’s law” earlier (i.e. ‘Whatever can go wrong, *will* go wrong’) is because this is the second WSU show in a row where the challenger for Jessicka Havok‘s WSU World Title has had to pull out due to injury – last time it was LuFisto. In fact, she’s not announced for the show, but how perfect would it be if LuFisto was able to fill that spot at the top of the card today? So, unless LuFisto was planned as an unannounced surprise Rumble entrant, I think logic dictates the more likely outcome is to either move one of Lexxus or Nevaeh into the main event to challenge Havok (both have legitimate claims for a shot), or parachute Havok into the existing match and make it a Havok/Lexxus/Nevaeh three way for the title. Either way, these are the questions that Drew Cordeiro will currently be grappling with, so we wish him all the best getting the card straightened out before bell time today.

UPDATE: WSU has just updated on twitter that Jessicka Havok will NOT be at the show today either, citing travel issues. Replying to us, WSU put a positive spin on the news, claiming that it gives a “Huge opportunity for the debuting wrestlers to step up”. Fingers crossed for them.

After the cut you’ll find results of the WSU Secret Show – an event which will be released exclusively on StreamWSU.com in the near future. If you’d prefer to avoid results for that, don’t click through. (more…)


Debuts aplenty for WSU in August

WSU logoWhile many fans are happy with the expansion of women’s wrestling promotions over the last few years, a criticism has been that similar names can be seen across the board. It could be argued that the reason they are so regularly booked is because of their ability, skill and match quality, but on the flip side, others may say that it stifles the development of others and makes rosters seem very similar. Women Superstars Uncensored may book some wrestlers which are regularly seen in other promotions – for example LuFisto – but in August, the promotion has plans to introduce more than half a dozen new names. Some of them you may be familiar with, others may be new to you. Some have had national exposure, some are competitively unknown. However, if you follow WSU, you’ll be getting to know them very soon… (more…)


NCW: Femmes Fatales XI – Two new champions crowned; LuFisto/Martinez feud heats up further

Mercedes Martinez Kalamity NCW Femmes FatalesHistory is being made at the Centre St-Barthelemy in Montreal, Quebec tonight as NCW: Femmes Fatales offers up a card with international implications – putting three of the world’s female wrestling championships on the line. In the main event, Femmes Fatales International Champion Kalamity defends her title for the seventeenth time against longtime rival Mercedes Martinez.

In addition, Sweet Saraya Knight defends the SHIMMER Championship against LuFisto, just one week before stepping into a steel cage with Cheerleader Melissa at SHIMMER Vol 53, while Bellatrix World Champion Allison Danger returns to Femmes Fatales to put her title on the line against the suplex master Courtney Rush. Cheerleader Melissa, who was planning on a shot at Jessicka Havok‘s WSU World Title on this show will instead have her hands full with Allysin Kay.

Ringbelles Roundup (15 January 2013) – Kaitlyn, Eve Torres, Women Of Wrestling and more

Kaitlyn WWESo Kaitlyn is finally the WWE Divas Champion. A week shy of five months after (accidentally) winning a battle royal to challenge for the title at Night Of Champions – a shot which never happened after she was written out so Eve Torres could vie for the belt like was originally planned – the NXT Season 3 winner reached the top of the pile, defeating Torres on the 20th anniversary episode of Raw. We’ll get to the new champ in a moment – but firstly, let’s discuss the noise which preceded the match…

Yesterday, PWInsider reported that last night would be Eve’s final match with WWE before leaving the company, and it would be likely that she would be dropping the belt to Kaitlyn, who she has been feuding with since mid-September. As it turns out, that is exactly what happened, though her title loss came a bit earlier than others were expecting. According to the most recent Wrestling Observer Radio, Torres handed in her notice a month ago with the agreement that she would stay on to build up the title feud with Kaitlyn and then drop the belt to her, with the internal expectation being that she would lose the title at the Royal Rumble in two weeks, after a series of matches between the two when Eve would use underhanded tactics to retain the title. Instead, the decision was made for the switch to take place on the milestone Raw – which makes more sense, as it means more viewers would see the change and Kaitlyn’s moment of glory would take place in her home town of Houston, TX. It was a smart move, as the partisan crowd was hotter for the match than it would have likely been compared to the audience at the Rumble in Phoenix, AZ. Besides, fans have been conditioned to a certain extent to not be that bothered about the Divas, so it was unlikely that the match would have generated a massive amount of pay-per-view buys.

My Name Is… Jewells Malone

Jewells Malone

Don’t be fooled by the blonde hair, bright smile and cute, shiny outfit – Jewells Malone has the ability to crush every rib in your abdomen. The Toronto, ON, Canada native sent us a message on our Facebook at the tail end of last year requesting some interview time at Ringbelles for My Name Is… so here we are.

As part of our interview with her (conducted mere minutes after she left the gym), the CCW Women’s and PWA Elite Women’s Champion spoke about us dubbing her the ‘Baby Beth Phoenix’, as well as her combat background, bonding with her father over wrestling, the Ontario women’s wrestling scene, her deathmatch tonight at Deathproof Fight Club in Toronto, and her travel plans for 2013.

In Video: Bombshell Ladies Of Wrestling

We've got the full Bombshell Ladies Of Wrestling show for youAs we said at the time, Pro Wrestling Syndicate‘s Bombshell Ladies Of Wrestling did not enjoy an easy birth. However, with its third show announced for February 9 in Metuchen, NJ, it seems to be finding its feet – and is headlined with Amazing Kong taking on Amy Lee, as well as the tournament semi finals.

The first show saw the first round matches take place on the 8 match card, with Christina Von Eerie meeting Cherry Bomb in the main event. Also on the show, RQW European Women’s Champion Queen Maya made her US debut against Sumie Sakai, and Annie Social fought Alexxis Nevaeh.

The card was meant to be broadcast on iPPV, but PWS decided to dump that idea when it decided that it wasn’t happy with the quality of the stream. However, the show from October 11 in Rahway, NJ was recorded – and now it has been edited and posted online for everyone to see ahead of February 9. If you want spoilers, the results are right here, but if you want to watch the matches without knowing the results, click the jump and enjoy. (more…)


Femmes Fatales X – Thoughts and Opinions

I’ve had a few days to knock up my thoughts on NCW: Femmes Fatales X from this past Saturday at the Centre St-Barthelemy in Montreal. A few days that have given me a little distance from the show, both mentally and physically (I’m now sitting back in my home over 3,200 miles away). I’m working from memory that has already been through the jet-lag wringer, so apologies if I’m a little vague with anything I struggle to remember clearly.

This was the first time that the NCW crew had decided to run a SHIMMER-style double taping, and I think there were some definite positives and definite negatives to the decision. On a positive note, I enjoyed the shows and got to see over 20 matches featuring talents from around the world – but on the other hand, the show felt different to the one I attended in March, and I wonder how much of that was due to the raised ticket prices possibly turning off local casual fans. Yes, there were lots of travelling fans (a good few having been at SHIMMER the weekend before), but the atmosphere was certainly lacking during the first taping especially, and the audience seemed far harder to rouse. Had FFX ended after the first taping, I think I’d have been disappointed, but luckily the second half of the show redeemed the day, both by producing better matches and by the crowd finally loosening up and reacting. I’m pretty certain that this double taping was an experiment rather than the new status quo at FF, and I’m sure that’s something that management will be looking at going into 2013. (more…)


Bombshell Ladies Of Wrestling results

Thursday seems to be a peculiar day to launch a new promotion, but that is what happened this week when Bombshell Ladies Of Wrestling made its debut in Rahway, NJ. Promising a tournament to crown its first champion, sixteen women would be paired down to 8 on the first show, with the next rounds taking place on subsequent shows. However, the birth of Pro Wrestling Syndicate‘s all-women offshoot division has been anything but a smooth one – in fact, this one could be described as breached…

Firstly, there is the abbreviation of the promotion’s name, which put off some wrestlers. Angelina Love was approached to appear on the show, but declined due to the acronym being BLOW. Others – both wrestlers and fans – have been critical of the overly smutty nature of the name, though as Annie Social discussed with us earlier this week, it was thought up as a tongue in cheek, less serious approach to wrestling – and as PWS themselves have pointed out, nobody complains about a promotion on TV with the initials TNA.
