Jennifer Blake returns to Absolute Intense Wrestling next Sunday for Girls Night Out 6, after beating Brittany Force then losing to Hailey Hatred at the original GNO on May 15, 2009, and being defeated by Jessicka Havok at GNO2 on October 10 of the same year. In 8 days time, she takes on Kimber Lee, who has gone from valeting at Combat Zone Wrestling to putting on the boots and stepping into the ring.
Girl Dynamite was touted as one of the next big things in women’s wrestling back in 2008 when she travelled from her native Canada to debut in SHIMMER: Women Athletes on volume 17. That seemed like a lot of pressure to heap on someone’s shoulders when they were starting out, and it showed, as nerves seemed to get the better of her in the early matches. However, Blake did have some good outings in the promotion, one of the notable ones being against Rain on volume 25.
As well as the aforementioned AIW bookings, working for Wrestlicious as Autumn Frost and a solitary appearance in Jersey All Pro Wrestling, Blake withdrew from wrestling in the US to try her luck in Mexico for AAA, where she briefly changed her name to Jennifer Blade before reverting back to her standard ring moniker. Starting out as a cohort of Konnan in rudo stable La Legión Extranjera, she hooked up with Christina Von Eerie, Sexy Star and Rain, and formed a splinter stable called Las Gringas Locas. As time passed, Von Eerie and Rain departed, leaving Blake and Sexy Star to cause havoc. (more…)
The visiting Knockouts from TNA made an impact (yes, I know, crap joke) at AAA TripleMania XIX in Mexico City, Mexico last night, as Mickie James, Velvet Sky, Angelina Love & AAA regular Sexi Star defeated Fabi and Mari Apache, Lolita & Cinthia Moreno in the opening contest of the show.
According to Superluchas, Star got the most elaborate entrance of the match, coming to the ring in a car – it makes sense, I suppose, as she is one of AAA’s full-time wrestlers. As for the match itself, opinions will obviously vary between fans, but two consecutive posts from the Luchablog chatroom claim that the women were blowing spots. Honestly, that’s not that much of a surprise for a number of reasons, which include this being the first time most of the TNA girls will have wrestled their opponents, and if Sky’s lucha attempts with Sarita on Impact are anything to go by, a lot of this may have been watched through the fingers to try and shield yourself from the horror. For the record, Mickie James got the pin on Fabi Apache with her jumping DDT, which hopefully looked better than it did last Sunday at Slammiversary IX. (more…)
