Absolute Intense Wrestling Girls Night Out 11 & 12 live results – Athena Wins AIW Women’s Championship

Athena AIW Champion by Dave MuscarellaSpring’s Female Fight Season kicks off in Cleveland, OH today with Absolute Intense Wrestling‘s Girls Night Out 11 & 12 tapings. The first show is headlined with a match which should clear up the controversy over the Women’s Championship, as Allysin Kay and Leah Von Dutch square off.

Von Dutch claims that she is the rightful titleholder after beating Kay in controversial circumstances back in February, with an announcement made that the pair will square off at GNO11. Since then, a ruling has been made that Kay is still the reigning Women’s Champion and Von Dutch’s title win did not happen. However, Leah is undefeated in AIW action and holds a win in some fashion over the titleholder, though Allysin will be taking on her adversary without being fatigued from an earlier match – so this is certainly an intriguing contest.

Elsewhere, Kay Lee Ray makes her US debut taking on Mickie Knuckles, Thunderkitty returns to the promotion after a year and a half with a match against Marti Belle – and she discussed her comeback here – and Annie Social & Heidi Lovelace will challenge the Jollyville Fuck-Its for the Tag Team Championship. Unfortunately, Shanna will not be part of the tapings after having to pull out for personal reasons – she was meant to face Veda Scott and Hania in singles matches.

We’ll have results as they happen courtesy of Dave Muscarella in attendance, so click the jump and keep hitting refresh for the latest. (more…)


CAN USA Classic – The Americans pick up the win

2 She Nay Nay LuFisto Xandra Bale Vanessa Kraven Seleziya Sparx TabercilWe going to post the report to this yesterday, but decided to hold off for 24 hours to reveal the injury to Courtney Rush‘s collarbone – click here to read more about that. She suffered the break during her match under the hood as La Tigre Diablo, and there was some hasty rebooking to replace her on the show. However, fans in the building didn’t know what was going on, so we thought we would bring you up to speed before posting this report.

As for the writer – you may remember a website focussing on Canadian female wrestlers called North Starz which vanished a year ago. Well it’s back, and its webmaster Rick McLean was in attendance, and offered to let us know what happened. We jumped at the chance – and coupled with some excellent pictures from the very talented Tabercil, we can bring you a comprehensive rundown of how Team USA won the first Smash Wrestling CAN USA Classic(more…)


Ringbelles Roundup (30 April 2013) – Io Shirai’s comeback, Knockouts website and more

Io ShiraiIf the original Triple Tails members of Kana, Mio & Io Shirai were to hold a party and bring along their biggest accomplishment, Io would be last to arrive, but would be sporting the shiniest trinket. That’s because the 22-year old claimed the World Of Stardom Championship from Alpha Female at the promotion’s Ryogoku Cinderella show at Sumo Hall in Tokyo, Japan in front of a reported crowd of 5,500 paid fans (though some reports say that may have been inflated). Using a rolling cradle, Shirai put down the massive German for the pin, claiming her first singles championship, and a prestigious one at that.

While Kana held the SMASH Divas Championship on two occasions, the belt is now defunct and she never managed a successful defence in either reign, and Mio Shirai’s run with Ice Ribbon’s ICEx60 belt was more successful than Kana’s SMASH stints, it isn’t as prominent a championship as her sister’s current hardware – which is a big sign that the nightmare of last year is well behind her… (more…)


Flashback 2012: The other interviews

dynamic_mic1As was mentioned in the previous Flashback 2012 article, Ringbelles was created as a host for our flagship Women Of Wrestling Podcasts, which offers thorough insights into wrestlers, their pasts and what they’re up to at the moment. They’re also quite lengthy – with the longest going for close to two hours. With that in mind, we made the decision to offer other interview segments on the website – ones which were shorter, and dealt with current news rather than being a career retrospective. For that reason, Fight Like A Girl was born back in May last year, with Faith Lehaine being the first guest. However, the show really gained a life of its own in 2012, and also saw it joined by another interview segment – but we’ll get to that. Firstly, let’s have a look at who gave us some of their time over the last 12 months for Fight Like A Girl… (more…)


My Name Is… Seleziya Sparx

The Sexiest Female in Ontario – as voted by the readers of Ontario Wrestling’s Indie Elite – graces Ringbelles with her presence for the latest episode of My Name Is… – an introduction to wrestlers starting to make waves in the industry. “The Sass Queen” Seleziya Sparx debuted almost two years ago, and has already had her fair share of successes and disappointments along the way.

In our interview with the 20-year old from Toronto discusses whether she was a tomboy growing up – here’s a hint, take a look at the photo to your right for the answer to that one – her training, her first match and also how she had to overcome personal anxieties to do it. On the flip side, Seleziya has had more than her share of knocks, having suffered one serious injury, and a question mark hanging over another.

Sparx also talks about her end goals, what she has planned for the year, and which stars she would like to step into the ring with to gain more knowledge. This is a woman who has ambitions – get on board at the start to experience her ascent, and find out why “it ain’t easy being sleazy”.

Ontario & Quebec dish out their 2011 awards

NCW Femmes Fatales were big winners at the annual Quebec Wrestling Awards for 2011, which were announced yesterday on lutte.com. The French language website celebrates the history of Montreal wrestling as well as recognise the best in current day Quebec grappling – and these awards are now in their eleventh year. Femmes Fatales, which returns to action on March 10th, picked up a number of plaudits. LuFisto‘s feud with current NCW International Champion Kalamity won Feud of the Year in the province, while Femmes Fatales VII: World Summit (from October) won show of the year. Femmes Fatales VII was the show which saw Kalamity beat LuFisto for the title, and feature more international visitors than ever before, such as the debuting Yumi Ohka (who had a highly regarded match with Cheerleader Melissa), Tomoka Nakagawa, Kellie Skater and the return to the ring of Tiana Ringer. For having both feud and show of the year, as well as enhancing the international reputation of his promotion, Femmes Fatales booker Stéphane Bruyère was awarded the Best Booker award.

In other categories, Femmes Fatales placed strongly. The match between LuFisto & Ayako Hamada (which headlined FFV in March) was the runner up for Match of the Year (coming second to Kevin Steen vs Paul London from NSPW only on the basis of “first place votes” cast – and only then by a margin of one vote). LuFisto also placed second runner-up for Best Babyface, while “The Pink Flash” Kira was first runner-up in Rookie of the Year. In related news, Kira’s next challenge was announced today, as she will go one-on-one in an international challenge with “Rate Tank” Kellie Skater at Femmes Fatales VIII next month. (more…)


In Video: Angelina Love goes indy; Seleziya Sparx gets a late Christmas present

Christmas Season may be done, but let’s take a quick trip back to last month for this week’s “In Video” segment with a trip up to Oshawa, Ontario, Canada for a mixed tag at GCW’s “Seasons Beatings” that sees a TNA Knockout go back to her Canadian indy roots. Originally scheduled to be Shawn Spears & Angelina Love taking on “Dangerboy” Derek Wylde & Cherry Bomb, the match was changed at the last minute when Wylde & Cherry Bomb were unable to make the booking… giving a chance to the mixed tag combo of Brent Banks and Seleziya Sparx.

Sparx is one of a number of young indy talents trying to find their way in the Ontario region. At about a year and a half of experience, she’s still learning – but shares her initial training with one of the men who intitially trained Love, in Squared Circle’s Rob Fuego. A big opportunity beckoned for Sparx. Would she be able to take advantage? (more…)
