Following 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?
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…)

As 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.
