The British twins who over the last few years have made names for themselves Stateside in the former WWE and now current TNA Developmental Territory Ohio Valley Wrestling will each be looking to earn a shot at the coveted Pro-Wrestling:EVE Championship by winning the 8 woman Queen Of The Ring Tournament but this is tournament where The Blossom’s “Twin Magic” (where the twins have been known to switch places without the referee being aware) won’t be able to get them through the whole tournament for if they both win their quarter-final matches, the Manchester born twins will find themselves on opposing sides of the ring against one another for the first time!
Hannah Blossom will be facing “The Dynamite Princess” Nikki Storm who went to the finals of the Pro-Wrestling:EVE Championship Tournament, is the only person on the EVE roster to have defeated Alpha Female (albeit with lots of outside interference) and went undefeated at the the EVE v Ice Ribbon Series racking up victories against former ICEx60 Champion Tsukasa Fujimoto and the current reigning ICEx60 Champion Hikaru Shida along the way. Storm impressed the Japanese officials in attendance so much so that it’s rumoured she’ll be making her Japanese debut later this year!
This will be the first time Nikki Storm and Hannah Blossom have ever even met one another let alone been in the same ring! Hannah Blossom has a major experience advantage over Nikki Storm, in fact back when Nikki Storm was still training she would buy tickets to see the ChickFight UK promotion (headed up by the same producers who bring you Pro-Wrestling:EVE today) and travel down to witness Team Blossom compete in front of her own eyes! Can Nikki Storm continue the streak of big, high profile victories? Will Hannah Blossom go on to add the Pro-Wrestling:EVE Championship to her previous accolade of OVW Women’s Champion? Could The Blossom Twins face one another for the very first time? All these questions and so many more will be answered on Saturday February 18 when Pro-Wrestling:EVE presents “No Man’s Land: Sjodin v Alpha” LIVE on iPPV exclusively at www.Diva-Dirt.com/EVElive
