PWS Bombshells to crown Majestic Champion; Missy Sampson granted final shot at Bombshells Title

PWS BombshellsLast October, Pro Wrestling Syndicate launched an all-women offshoot to its promotion with a controversial name. Called Bombshell Ladies Of Wrestling, its acronym of BLOW ruffled some feathers – though as Annie Social argued at the time, it’s no more offensive than a promotion where the letters are shortened to TNA.

The first show saw the start of the quest to crown a Bombshells Champion, though the road to the title wasn’t a smooth one, as wrestlers either didn’t make the first show or had to bow out due to other issues. In fact, it meant the title decider at the third event was a 3-way which turned into a 4-way when injured Sienna DuVall re-inserted herself into the tournament. Missy Sampson won the championship, though the controversies continued and saw her drop the belt to La Rosa Negra at Bombshells 4 when the referee stopped the match, deeming that Sampson was unable to continue in a ruling which was pretty unique to wrestling and didn’t go down too well.

What followed was heel commissioner Vinny Finucci against everywoman babyface Sampson, who he deemed to be not pretty enough to be the focal point of the promotion. Sampson earned a return match at the title at Bombshells 6, but lost due to another screwy decision. However, by way of winning another tag match at the most recent event in September, she has been granted a final shot at La Rosa Negra in a 2 out of 3 falls match at Bombshells 8 on December 14 in Avenel, NJ.

Ringbelles Roundup (5 November 2013) – Wrestling in your area, Total Divas and tons of news

7 Rhia O'Reilly ShannaIt’s weird – this website was buzzing with stories last month as part of Open Female Fight Season, with results from Bellatrix, Absolute Intense Wrestling, Women Superstars Uncensored, SHIMMER, SHINE & NCW: Femmes Fatales all flowing in, interspersed with interviews, reaction and discussion. It was certainly a busy time for women wrestling fans, and sites dedicated to it, such as this one. You would imagine that at the conclusion of such a period, there would be a hangover of sorts where many wrestlers would rest, promotions would ease down and there would not be that much to talk about.

WSU Uncensored Rumble VI – New faces shine on re-jigged card

Shanna PoseWell, we can probably throw a good amount of the preview we did a couple of days ago out the window – as you join us for coverage of Women Superstars Uncensored‘s Uncensored Rumble VI iPPV (via CZWiPPV.com). As you’ll have no doubt seen, the show has been thrown into disarray with first one half of the main event (Athena) being injured at the Secret Show last night, and then the other half of the main event (Jessicka Havok) pulling out due to unresolvable travel issues. With the drawing card match off the show, WSU owner Drew Cordeiro suggested that this would be a “Huge opportunity for the debuting wrestlers to step up” – so let’s see.

Click through after the cut for results as they come in from the Uncensored, Unscripted Rumble, where we’re pretty sure anything could happen… (more…)


Multiple women vying for your TNA Gut Check vote

TNA Gut CheckThe TNA Gut Check series isn’t just played out on TV. The promotion has spent the last two years travelling the US, Canada, the UK and Ireland offering sessions to wrestlers looking to make an impact (pun intended). That means that it’s not just winner Taeler Hendrix who has been involved in the process – and as we mentioned last June, both LuFisto and Courtney Rush were involved in the Gut Check which took place in Oshawa, ON, Canada. However now, TNA has thrown the selection process for who gets a shot on Impact Wrestling out to us, the fans. We will have our say in who we want to step into the ring in Orlando, FL.

To do this, TNA has listed every single person who has participated in any one of the sessions since the first one took place in September 2010 in Rahway, NJ. As stated in the press release – from tomorrow evening, we have the chance to go via the promotion’s website and vote in the Gut Check Challenge, described as “an interactive experience by letting fans decide the one previous “TNA Gut Check” participant who is most deserving of appearing on IMPACT WRESTLING’s “TNA Gut Check” segment on Spike TV.” There will be rounds – 16 brackets in all – until all the wrestlers are whittled down to one.

A number of women have attended the Gut Check sessions, and all of them are eligible, including the aforementioned LuFisto and Rush. After the jump, we’ll let you know which names to look out for – but first, A WARNING.

Beyond this point, we will be revealing the real names of a lot of wrestlers, as that is how their names will likely – appear on the voting form though some are just going by their wrestler persona. If you are someone who likes not knowing their true monikers, stay away. With that said, anyone who’s OK with it can jump in and see who’s vying for your vote from tomorrow evening [UPDATE: it's been bumped to Monday afternoon], as well as the links to their profiles on the Gut Check site, where available.

In Video: Fights at Florida Underground Wrestling

Amazing Kong at FUWThe day after SHINE 5 entered the history books back in November, a number of the roster stayed on in Florida to be part of a card for Florida Underground Wrestling as part of a new working relationship between the two promotions. It meant that around half of the card featured women’s matches, headlined with Made In Sin (Allysin Kay and Taylor Made) meeting Rhythm and Bruise (Jazz and Amazing Kong) in tag team action.

On the undercard, Heidi Lovelace faced fellow Ohio Valley Wrestling regular Sojo Bolt (Josette Bynum), Nikki Roxx took on Niya, Santana Garrett wrestled Sassy Stephie, and Marti Belle tangled with Leva Bates. All of the matches are after the jump, so click away and enjoy the five matches in their entirety. It’s a great opportunity to see Made In Sin, as the only chances to see Allysin and Taylor as a team so far have been on SHINE – which you have to pay to see – or at SHIMMER, which have not been released on DVD yet. Their schtick is a riot, so stick your pinkies up and get on board. (more…)


SHINE 5 results – the return of Amazing Kong (now updated with thoughts)

SHINE Wrestling headlines its SHINE 5 show with the worldwide return of the former Kharma in her first match since January, with Amazing Kong teaming up with Jazz as Rhythm and Bruise to take on the tandem of Rain and Mercedes Martinez.

It’s the main event of a pretty stacked card in Ybor City, FL, with another of the mouth-watering outings being Jessicka Havok facing Nikki Roxx in a rematch of the Women Superstars Uncensored contest which helped to put Havok on the path to the top, while Kimberly looks to end her run of losses by teaming with Leva Bates against Made In SinAllysin Kay and Taylor Made – video of which you can see in this month’s SHINE Scouting Report.

Shine Wrestling 5: Scouting Report

With no show scheduled for December, and Shine 6 already confirmed for January, Shine signs off on 2012 with what appears to be a pretty stacked card topped with an outstanding return, as Amazing Kong returns to the wrestling ring for the first time since the Royal Rumble in January. Kong teams with Jazz in a tag main event vs Mercedes Martinez & Rain. Also on the show, an increasingly desperate Kimberly turns to Leva Bates to help her 0-4 record, and Jessicka Havok & Nikki Roxx renew an old WSU rivalry. Apart from Kong, Shine 5 also brings debuts for 5 other stars, including another former WWE star…

Ivelisse Velez

WSU Full Steam Ahead card is complete

Women Superstars Uncensored has been rearranging furniture since being taken over by Beyond Wrestling following the Uncensored Rumble V iPPV back in June.

At the time, we gave our initial impressions of the acquisition, and also spoke to new owner Drew Cordiero as part of episode 42 of the Women Of Wrestling Podcast – and left feeling impressed with the direction being taken, especially since we had issues in the past with small attendance numbers and poor production of the iPPVs. Next month, WSU returns to Deer Park, NY for its first card under the Beyond Wrestling umbrella as part of three events over the span of one day – with one of those being an interpromotional show, followed by the comeback WSU event, entitled Full Steam Ahead.

WSU: Breaking Barriers 2 review

Twenty four hours removed from Women Superstars Uncensored‘s iPPV Breaking Barriers II and this writer is still at a loss for words. The show had it’s ups and downs as any show will, but when the ending of the War Games main event went down, it had me in shock and disbelief. The ending completely overshadowed the War Games match itself as well as the rest of the show. I’m going to attempt to write up a coherent report and put my thoughts and opinions into some sort of structure.

The first match was the Boston Shore (Amber and Lexxus) defending the WSU Tag Team Championships against the reunited International Home Wrecking Crew of Rain and Jetta. Back at WSU’s last DVD tapings in August, it was originally announced that Serena Deeb would be Rain’s partner since both women had had problems with the Shore. However, Serena pulled out of the match (which led to her being announced as Melina‘s opponent for Breaking Barriers II), leaving Rain without a partner. Not for long though – in a surprise twist, Rain brought Jetta out of retirement to take on the Shore. (more…)


WSU DVD taping results: 73 minute match, new faction & War Games match signed

Unlike its last few big-time offerings, which have been shown on iPPV before being released on DVD, this weekend’s Women Superstars Uncensored shows are going straight to the WSU shop. The promotion have two shows in Union City, NJ tonight, with the main matches being Mercedes Martinez defending the WSU World Title against Lexxus, and the increasingly-impressive Jessicka Havok taking on “The WSU Icon” Alicia in a No Holds Barred match.

After the jump, you’ll find all the results. Enjoy. (more…)


WSU Uncensored Rumble IV: Lexxus earns title shot


For the past three years, WSU has held an Uncensored Rumble to crown a number one contender. Going into it this year, Jessicka Havok was the strongest contender to win it all, though she would have to go through Alicia in an Uncensored Rules match first. Also on the card, among other matches, was Sassy Stephanie’s first title defense against the veteran Rain, new tag team champions Boston Shore defending against the Belle Saints, Marti Belle and Tina San Antonio, and Mercedes Martinez defending her WSU Championship against Britney Savage. Would the show live up to the hype? Let’s find out…

The iPPV was 20 minutes late starting, but wrestling fans are somewhat used to this. The stream flickered on to show Amy Lee in the ring, cutting a promo on fans in the crowd. The less said about this, the better.

The show kicked off with Sassy Stephie defending her WSU Spirit title against the Radiant Rain (who arrived in a new outfit, and to Jetta’s music “Something Kinda Oooh” – nice nod to her former tag team partner). What we saw was a strong, solid opening contest between a veteran and a woman who has only been wrestling since 2007. But despite Rain’s experience, Stephie fought back and delivered a Kiss My Sass to retain the Spirit title. Both women looked excellent, and it was a great match to start the iPPV off with. (more…)


Ringbelles Report: WSU Four Year Anniversary iPPV

Women Superstars Uncensored had promised much ahead of its Four Year Anniversary show. Jessicka Havok had promised to go through Rain’s Army to reach and defeat the leader herself; Sassy Stephie had made her intentions clear that she wanted the Spirit Championship and would do whatever it took to get it; Serena Deeb vowed to end the 2 year WSU World Title reign of Mercedes Martinez; and Alicia assured us she would cash in her title shot contract during the show and become a champion again. So who would succeed in their goals, and who (if anyone) would fall short? Let’s find out… (more…)
