QUICK LOOK AT THE MATCHES:
— Both Jillian Hall & Traci Brooks make their WSU returns on 1/21. The last time we saw Jillian Hall, Hall was narrowly defeated by Kristin Astara. The last time we saw Traci Brooks, Brooks was on the losing end of a tag team match to the Boston Shore. Now on 1/21, both will get a chance to climb the WSU World Title rankings, as a victory for either will boost themselves up the ladder for a potential World Title Shot. Making this match more intriguing is the return of WSU Hall of Famer, Molly Holly! Molly Holly will be making her 3rd appearance for WSU and if history is any indication, will be calling this huge match right down the middle!
— The other main event on 1/21 combines three of WSU’s most intense feuds into one match, in a special 5th Anniversary Show Preview. Alicia & Savage, who represented Team WSU at WARGAMES will get a chance to get revenge on Midwest Militia’s Allisyn Kay & Sassy Stephanie. It is amazing either of these four are able to compete after the brutality that took place in Wargames. If Wargames was any indication, expect wild violence between these four. The Soul Sisters, who defeated the Belle Saints to earn the number 1 contender spot for the WSU Tag Team Titles will get a chance to feel out the WSU Tag Team Champions The Boston Shore. Both teams are riding major highs and coming off big wins, as the Shore put down Rain & Jetta at the Breaking Barriers iPPV. Tina San Antonio & Marti Belle, formerly the Belle Saints, saw everything come to a head at Breaking Barriers, when it was revealed that Tina San Antonio faked her injury from day one, and used the time off for a WWE try-out. Instead of telling the truth to her partner, Tina lied to Marti, and then blindsided Marti with a vicious attack. This will be the first time that Tina San Antonio & Marti Belle find themselves in opposite corners of one another. With all 10 of these wrestlers looking forward to the 5 Year Anniversary Show, this match should prove to see who will have the upper hand going into that event.
— Two major title matches have been signed. WSU World Champion Mercedes Martinez will return to in-ring action after suffering a severe stinger and concussion, as a result of The Mid-West Militia’s attack on her at WARGAMES. Martinez will pair off with the feisty Jennifer Cruz. Cruz has been asking for respect and for title shots since day one, and WSU will finally oblige her, as a result of her big win against Niya at Breaking Barriers 2.
Becky Bayless made a successful return to WSU on 11/19, defeating the ever-annoying Rick Cataldo once and for all. Bayless said she wants to be taken seriously as a wrestler, and will have that opportunity as she squares off against perhaps the most intense and violent wrestler in all of womens wrestling, WSU Spirit Champion Jessicka Havok. Both of these title matches will have implications on the WSU 5 Year Anniversary show, as Martinez/Havok is currently scheduled to be title vs title. With both women looking for every edge going into the anniversary show, both women must also not over look their opponents on 1/21.
— Rick Cataldo is furious about losing to arch-rival Becky Bayless at Breaking Barriers II and has asked WSU for a match to redeem himself. Sick of Cataldo’s actions in not just WSU, but in WSU’s brother promotion NYWC, Jessie Brooks has stepped up to the plate. This will be a first time ever match, with the winner moving up the rankings in the WSU Spirit Title division.
DON’T FORGET: WSU is now shipping out copies of our successful BREAKING BARRIERS II iPPV, featuring Melina & Wargames, at WSUVideo.com. Please visit WSUVideo.com to order your copy today! We feel this is the best produced DVD yet, and we hope you support womens wrestling and check out this DVD from WSUVideo.com
