Pro-Wrestling:EVE News Update (11/03/2011)
In This Update:
We preview the First Round of the upcoming Pro-Wrestling:EVE Championship
Tournament to take place over April 8 and 9.
We announce a new First Round Match in the tournament.
We preview EVE DVD #4 ‘Empire Strikes Back – Final Chapter’ which was
released this past Tuesday.
We announce details on the next Pro-Wrestling:EVE Training Camp
PRO-WRESTLING:EVE CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT UPDATE!
The Pro-Wrestling:EVE Championship Tournament brackets are almost complete
with just one match and four participants remaining!
Lets take a look at the announced matches for the Pro-Wrestling:EVE
Championship Tournament thus far:
Match One of the Championship Tournament features a tournament favourite
in 20 year veteran Saraya Knight [WAW Gym] vs the brute force of Amazon
[WAW Gym], ‘The Fightin’ Irish’ Rhia O’Reilly [No Gym Affiliation] and
finally ‘The Dynamite Princess’ Nikki Storm [European Empire].
Tensions will no doubt be high in a contest that features both Saraya
Knight & Nikki Storm following the events that took place at the end of
‘Empire Strikes Back – The Final Chapter’.
Meanwhile ‘The Fightin’ Irish’ recently made EVE Management aware that she
was no longer training under Team Storm as wished to make a name for
herself as a solo star.
Whilst not confirmed it is speculation that the invents involving Nikki
Storm and Team Storm (Nikki had a very brief fling as part of the Team
Storm gym before joining the European Empire) has lead to Team Storm
dissolving with Becky James not even scheduled to be a part of the
Pro-Wrestling:EVE weekend. It should also be noted that ‘The Dynamite
Princess’ pinned both Rhia and Becky in the 3 Minute Warning match back at
‘Empire Strikes Back – The Final Chapter’.
Amazon is coming into this contest as by far the biggest and perhaps most
vicious of the four EVE Professionals. The last time we saw Amazon in EVE
was in an incredibly hard-hitting tag team contest with fellow WAW Gym
member Destiny as her partner against European Empire stable-mates The
Northern Shooters – Jenny Sjodin & April Davids. The match ended in a
double disqualification as all 4 Professionals brawled within the the ring
and refusing to stop.
Later on in the evening Amazon went searching backstage for The Northern
Shooters and caused such havoc that EVE Management were forced to have her
ejected from the building before the show was even over.
With Amazon joining Saraya Knight in having a personal grudge against the
European Empire of which Nikki Storm is a part of and with Rhia O’Reilly
obviously wanting to avenge her previous loss to Storm not to mention
having probable cause for revenge with Nikki being the catalyst for Team
Storm no longer operating one must therefore come to the conclusion that
Nikki Storm is entering this contest with a target on her head.
Match number 2 in the first round of the Pro-Wrestling:EVE Championship
Tournament will be revealed in next weeks update!
Match number 3 in the first round of the Pro-Wrestling:EVE Championship
Tournament will see the recently erupted feud between The European Empire
and The WAW Gym continue to flare in the one fall Four Corners match that
will see Shanna [European Empire], April Davids [European Empire], Destiny
[WAW Gym] & newcomer Alice Liberty [WAW Gym].
Shanna: Portugal’s Perfect Athlete made quite the début for
Pro-Wrestling:EVE immediately putting the female wrestling world on notice
that this previously unheard of Professional was the real deal. With
tremendous technical fundamentals and the ability to take to the air
Shanna made a name for herself in a tremendous back and forth contest with
Britani Knight in a match that saw Knight take the victory. Later on
however in the 3 Minute Warning contest Shanna was out for blood and
secured a submission victory over the 18 year old second generation
professional and also managed to put the youngster out of action for
several weeks such was the damage caused.
Liberty: This is a big match for Liberty to make her Pro-Wrestling:EVE
début in but with recent impressive performances for her WAW Gym events
and at the recent Pro-Wrestling:EVE training camps EVE Management feel she
is very deserving of this opportunity.
Destiny: Liberty’s WAW Gym mate Destiny on the other hand must be walking
into this tournament as one of the favourites having held practically
every women’s championship there is to hold in the UK in her 6 year
wrestling career. Destiny will also be looking forward to once again
getting in the ring with our next entrant…
April Davids: With earned nicknames such as ‘The Professional
Face-Breaker’ and ‘The Lancashire Terrier’ it doesn’t take a genius to
figure out that April Davids is one seriously vicious, aggressive and
Davids and her Northern Shooters partner Jenny Sjodin met Destiny and her
WAW Gym partner Amazon back at Empire Strikes Back – Chapter One in a
hard-hitting match that the referee was forced to throw out and rule a
double disqualification such was the nature of their contest. Later on in
the evening Davids & Sjodin joined Jetta, Nikki Storm and Shanna in
forming the European Empire destroying WAW Gym leader Saraya Knight as
‘Empire Strikes Back’ came to a close.
Now Davids & Destiny will meet again in a 4 Corners match as part of the
Pro-Wrestling:EVE Championship Tournament however should either be looking
to advance this time they will need to worry about more than just each
other as despite having gym partners in the match with the EVE
Championship at stake in this tournament neither Shanna or Liberty will
fail to take any advantage they can in order to win the match for
The Fourth Match in the First Round of the Pro-Wrestling:EVE Championship
Tournament will feature the ONLY undefeated Professional currently active
on the Pro-Wrestling:EVE roster in the form of Germany’s Alpha Female [No
Gym Affiliation]. The Munich Mauler has become arguably the most popular
Professional on the Pro-Wrestling:EVE roster after tearing through
opponent after opponent including being the only person to ever slam EVE’s
super-heavyweight Destiny in her 6 year wrestling career. However since
DVD #2 (A New Hope – Final Chapter) Alpha has had issues with The Glamour
Gym. From twice sacrificing their then personal assistant Jane Beatrix
Dunn to the German Giant instead of taking the contests themselves to
aiding Destiny in gaining an advantage in their one on one contest on DVD
#4 (Empire Strikes Back – Final Chapter). Do both Carmel Jacob &
Sara-Marie Taylor of The Glamour Gym have a death wish or do they believe
they have a way to make a name for themselves at the expense of The Alpha
Female? From running scared to actively provoking it seems The Glamour Gym
have suddenly changed their tactics and there is no doubt that a win over
The Alpha Female would certainly propel either of the duo’s career even
further into the spotlight. Well on April 8 at The Royal British Legion in
Norwich Carmel Jacob [The Glamour Gym] will get just that opportunity as
she too will be in the 4 Corners match with The Alpha Female as part of
the first round of the Pro-Wrestling:EVE Championship Tournament. However
waiting in the wings ready to hand Alpha Female her first defeat and move
ahead in the tournament at the expense of Carmel Jacob is former EVE
Potential Em Jay [No Gym Affiliation] and EVE newcomer Kay Lee Ray [No Gym
While not successful in her EVE Potentials match back on DVD #4 (Empire
Strikes Back – Final Chapter) Em Jay has since dramatically upped her
training regime and taken part in all Pro-Wrestling:EVE training camps
(for more information go to www.EVEwrestling.com/training) and in the eyes
of EVE Management her hard work, continued dedication and improvement has
seen the Portsmouth native go from EVE Potential to EVE Professional. The
student of Hardcore Holly and The UK Kid will undoubtedly be going into
this tournament as one of the underdogs and perhaps even a perennial
afterthought to the other Professionals however Em Jay will be looking to
showcase her improved in-ring abilities and create the biggest upset of
the night and if Em-Jay can get past this match then there is no telling
just what she may be able to achieve…
Our fourth and final Professional in this contest is 18 year old Kay Lee
Ray from Scotland. Kay Lee will be making her début on Friday April 8 at
The Royal British Legion in Norwich and while she has never even been on
the same cards with the majority of the rest of the EVE Professionals one
person whom she has had her fair share of battles with is also in this
contest in the form of fellow Scot Carmel Jacob. Having competed against
her numerous times in Scotland Kay knows what she has to do to get past
the Glamour Gym member and will no doubt be looking to keep the contest
between the two. Kay Lee Ray comes into Pro-Wrestling:EVE highly touted by
some of the best wrestlers in the world as being the ‘One To Watch’ in
2011 and from what we’ve been told with the right game plan Kay Lee Ray
could very much be the person leaving The Delphi Club on Saturday April 9
having competed in the tournament finals with a Championship belt around
The Fifth Match of the EVE Championship Tournament will see former regular
& still occasional tag team parters Britani Knight [WAW Gym] & Melodi [No
Gym Affiliation] come face to face. While the duo formally known as The
Norfolk Dolls could work as a unit against the other two Professionals in
the contest only one woman can win and advance in the tournament and
therefore the duo will at some point have to put their friendship aside
and compete against each other in order to win.
The third woman in the contest is ‘The Female Fight Machine’ Jenny Sjodin
[European Empire]. The Grappling Gold Medallist is regarded among those in
the business as one of the favourites to win the tournament. The Swedish
Submission Specialist is considered a strong betting favourite for going
all the way and winning the Pro-Wrestling:EVE Championship after an
impressive 2010 winning numerous medals around the world in Ground
Grappling and showing a fierce killer instinct in the Pro-Wrestling:EVE
rings. By aligning herself with Jetta’s European Empire Sjodin has pushed
herself even further into the spotlight and wrestling experts are
predicting that 2011 will be the year of ‘The Female Fight Machine’.
The 4th participant in this contest is being kept a closely guarded
secret. It is to the understanding of www.EVEwrestling.com that EVE
Management were forced to include this person (much against their wishes)
due to legal proceedings. We are unsure of why this is the case but have
been told that it will remain a secret from all wrestling press and even
those on the Pro-Wrestling:EVE roster until the night itself. This gives
the 4th participant quite the advantage as this individual already knows
who they’re competing against where as everyone else will have to adapt on
The sixth First Round match as stated above will be a ‘Last Chance Battle
Royal’. This will feature the losers of the previous five First Round
matches compete against one another in an over the top rope battle royal
where the winner will be thrust back into the tournament albeit now having
competed in TWO matches. EVE Management decided that while some may deem
it unfair that they will have competed twice to get into the
Quarter-Finals the mere fact that this gives them a second opportunity to
win the EVE Championship in addition to the fact that their opponent would
have had less time to prepare easily balances that out. EVE Management put
this motion forward to all talent first and it should be noted that this
was agreed by all those competing with not one objection.
Next week we’ll be announcing the final match (tournament matches #2) in
the first round of the Pro-Wrestling:EVE Championship Tournament that will
take place on Friday April 8 at The Royal British Legion in Norwich.
NEW EVE DVD NOW ON SALE!
Find out why everybody is now talking about the female wrestlers of Europe
with Pro-Wrestling:EVE ‘Empire Strikes Back – Final Chapter’ DVD!
10 WOMAN ‘3 MINUTE WARNING’ MATCH
10 women were chosen at random by EVE Management to have the opportunity
to earn a ‘buy’ into the semi-finals of the Pro-Wrestling:EVE Championship
Tournament on Saturday April 9 at The Delphi Club in Sudbury, Suffolk.
However in order to earn that ‘buy’ 1 woman would have to outlast 9 others
in this EVE Original Match – the ‘3 Minute Warning’.
A random drawing is held backstage before the contest that will determine
the order of entrance for the participants.
Eliminations occur in the contest by Pinfall or Submission only.
The EVE Professionals who drew the numbers 1 & 2 will start the contest.
Should 3 minutes pass without an elimination the EVE Professional who drew
number 3 will then enter the ring.
However, should an elimination occur before the 3 minutes have expired the
EVE Professional who drew the following number would then enter the ring,
the clock is then reset and the 3 minute period begins again.
This continues until all 10 EVE Professionals have entered the match at
which point there is no time limit and the match continues until there is
just one EVE Professional remaining as the winner!
The winner will then receive a ‘Buy’ into the Semi-Finals of the
Pro-Wrestling:EVE Championship Tournament to take place on Saturday April
8, 2011 at The Delphi Club in Sudbury, Suffolk!
