Sweet Saraya - Womens Wrestling UK

Here is the very proud mom of WWE Diva Paige, Sweet Saraya.
Now this picture is from back in the day when Julia Hamer-Bevis must have been right around Paige's age now.
Saraya debuted in 1990 and has been going strong ever since.

Premier Wrestling Federation Ladies Tag Team Championship (with her daughter)

And in 2013, Pro Wrestling Illustrated ranked her #3 of the best 50 female singles wrestlers in the PWI Female 50.

Terri Power - Womens Pro Wrestling

Terri Poch was a pretty darn good wrestler before she hit the WWF as Tori.
Before that she was known as Terri Power.
Terri held the Ladies Professional Wrestling Association (LPWA) Championship and was never defeated for it, holding it until the promotion shut down.

She was also a frequent tag team partner of Reggie Bennett and those two made quite a powerful team.
I think they would have given a lot of the men a hard time.

After the LPWA folded, Terri went to Japan and worked for All Japan Women's Pro-Wrestling.
Then after that, she showed up in the WWF.
Of course they never used her to her full potential and she wound up a a footnote in WWF/WWE history when she should have been a WWE Women's Champion.

I always thought that Ida Mae Martinez and Rita Cortez were two of the most beautiful women in the Golden Days of wrestling.
And it has been quite a while since I did anything on Ida Mae, so here she is.

Here's a picture of Old School UK lady pro wrestlers Rusty Blair (brunette) and Tina Starr (blonde) mixing it up back in the day.
I'm really thinking about making a blog just for UK wrestling.
