Female Wrestling - Sara Jay

I don't know if Sara Jay took the snake to the ring ala Jake Roberts, or if this is just a promo for Snakepit Pro Wrestling...

We seem to have an influx of Australian female wrestlers on here, and here is another, Sara Jay.
This beautiful young lady was born on May 11th in Warwick, Australia.
She may only stand 5 feet tall and weigh in at 110 pounds, but this is a lot of fight in her, as she takes on both female and male wrestlers.

Sara has held the WCWA Junior Girls Championship, the MIW Womens belt, the NAW Womens Championship and the WWC Womens title.

She has worked for Riot City Wrestling, PWWA, Ultimate Wrestling Alliance, PWA QLD, Snakepit Pro Wrestling, PWA Elite, MIW, Nightmare Wrestling, IWA, PWA Underground and AAW in Australia and World Wrestling Council in Puerto Rico.

You can keep up with Sara at her MySpace page here:

MsChif - Womens Pro Wrestling

I've never made any secret of how awesome I think MsChif is.
She has that certain something that female wrestlers need to make it big.
I kinda wonder why she has never made the jump to WWE or TNA, but I am kinda glad she hasn't.

I didn't see MsChif's name on the G.L.O.R.Y. Hot 100 which kinda dissapointed me (actually, I didn't see her on GLORY at all), but she did come in fourth on the PWI Female 50 for 2009, so that made me feel better.
Hey, MsChif started 2009 as the NWA World Women's champion, the SHIMMER champion, AND the NWA Midwest Women's champion... she deserves to be at LEAST fourth.

MsChif has her own website: and her fan page at MySpace where you can keep up with her appearances.

Of course my "dream team" is Daffney and MsChif.
Could you imgaine the two of them tag teaming in TNA to go after the TNA Knockouts title held by Sarita and Taylor Wilde?
And if you wanna make me really happy, how about Daffney, MsChif and a "psycho" Tara teaming up.
Kinda like an "Anti-Beautiful People".

Female Wrestling Films

Since I'm not bound to the WWE or TNA here, I thought I would do a little something different here and take a look at female wrestling movies.
Or at least movies that have female wrestling in them.

The first movie I found was the 1951 film Racket Girls.
Bad beyond belief (it had the "honor" of appearing on an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000), the film actually has a few notable appearances.
One is Timothy Farrell who appeared in Ed Wood's Jail Bait, The Violent Years, and Glen or Glenda.
And two is that female pro wrestlers Clara Mortensen and Rita Martínez are in it.
There are also two uncredited female wrestlers, The Leopard Lady and The Panther Woman.
I wonder if they were real also?

Of course Lucha Libre had a run of movies with female wrestlers in them like 1963's Las luchadoras contra el médico asesino (released in the US as Rock 'N Roll Wrestling Women vs. the Aztec Ape), Las luchadoras contra la momia (1964), released here as (Rock 'N Roll Wrestling Women vs. the Aztec Mummy) and 1969's Las luchadoras vs el robot asesino (Wrestling Women versus the Murderous Robot).
I did write ups on most of these on one of my Luchadora blogs.

And of course we have the classic (well classic to me at least, I saw it in the theatre when it came out) …All the Marbles (aka The California Dolls).
All The Marbles came out in 1981 and was directed by the legendary Robert Aldrich (What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte and The Dirty Dozen).
It starred Peter Falk, Vicki Frederick, and Laurene Landon and legendary female wrestler Mildred Burke actually taught Vicki Frederick and Laurene Landon how to wrestle for their parts in the movie.
Although the movie didn't do too well in the US, it did great in Japan and overseas, and a sequal was actually planned, but the death of Robert Aldrich killed that.
I have to say one thing I never say regarding movies....
"Hey Hollywood, how about a remake?"

 Then we have 1989's American Angels: Baptism of Blood.
This movie starred Jan MacKenzie, Mimi Lesseos (The Magnificent Mimi) and Tray Loren.
Plus it had a lot of female wrestlers from the women's wrestling promotion Powerful Women of Wrestling (another product of GLOW's David McLane).
I know Sue Sexton was in it, Jane Hamlin (California Doll in GLOW and Malibu in POWW) and Jan Flame ( I think she wrestled for POWW and a few independent producers, you'd know her if you saw her).

Just Another Romantic Wrestling Comedy (2006) wasn't really about female wrestling specifically, but it did have April Hunter and Chyna in it.
Man, think of the tag team THAT would have made!
WCW and WWF star Debra Marshall also made an appearance in the movie

PWI Female 50 - The Independents

Pro Wrestling Illustrated just released their 2009 "PWI Female 50" list.
The top female wrestler as everyone probably knows by now is Mickie James.
But what about the Independent wrestlers?

Well I looked at the list and cut the WWE Divas and TNA Knockouts out (though to be really fair, a lot of the TNA Knockouts still do Indy shows but for this I took them out).
So after removing those wrestlers, we are left with this....

1. MsChif
2. Sara Del Rey
3. Mercedes Martinez
4. Daizee Haze
5. Angel Orsini
6. Rain
7. Amber O'Neal
8. Jetta
9. Lufisto
10. Madison Eagles
11. Nevaeh
12. Wesna Busic
13. Portia Perez
14. Danyah
15. Ariel
16. Jennifer Blake
17. Nichole Matthews
18. Serena Deeb
19. Allison Danger
20. Melia Hosaka
21. Lexie Fyfe
22. Jamie D
23. Amy Lee
24. Annie Social
25. April Hunter
26. Cherry Bomb
27. Jessie McKay

Now if they will just do a Luchadora and Joshi PWI Female 50, I'll be happy.

Female Wrestling-The G.L.O.R.Y. Hot 100

The WAMMA has their top female MMA fighter list, but the closest I can find to anything like that on the web (not counting PWI's annual list) for female wrestlers is the G.L.O.R.Y. Hot 100.

On their top 100 list for August 30, 2009, the top ten were....

 Jennifer Blake - female wrestling

1. Jennifer Blake
2. Kristin Flake
3. The Radiant Rain
4. Amber
5. Annie Social
6. April Hunter
7. Miss Rachel
8. Lorelei Lee
9. Christie Ricci
10. Sara Jay

You can see the whole list here:

G.L.O.R.Y. Wrestling has been around a long time and a lot of the ladies they profiled as Indy wrestlers have gone on to become stars in the WWE and TNA.
Women like Sojo Bolt, Traci Brooks, Cheerleader Melissa, Jessica Dalton (ODB), Felina (Gail Kim) and a whole lot more.
It's a really good site to look up your favorite Indy wrestlers, and to see where some of the popular female wrestlers of today came from.

Female Wrestlers Before They Were Stars, Part 4

Now for the last three female wrestlers from the TNA Knockout roster......

Taylor Wilde
Shantelle Malawski started wrestling in June 2003.
Before TNA, she was featured in the two-part wrestling documentary, Slam Bam, which aired on the Discovery Channel.
Taylor wrestled for New Vision Pro Wrestling, she did a a three-show tour of South Africa, she wrestled in Monterrey, Mexico, Shimmer Women Athletes, Ring Divas' Battle Angels, Twin Wrestling Entertainment, Blood Sweat and Ears, Deep South Wrestling, Women Superstars Uncensored and Pure Wrestling Association in Southern Ontario.

Traci Brooks
Tracy Brookshaw had a long career in wrestling before TNA.
She made her pro wrestling debut in January 2001 as "Tracy Brooks".
Traci has wrestled for Border City Wrestling, the Apocalypse Wrestling Federation (where she had a feud with Gail Kim who was then billed as La Felina), Blood Sweat and Ears, NWA Cyberspace, 3X Wrestling, All Star Championship Wrestling, Coastal Championship Wrestling, Downsouth Championship Wrestling, Great Lakes Championship Wrestling, New Ohio Championship Wrestling, Southern Championship Wrestling and World Xtreme Wrestling.

Velvet Sky
Jamie Szantyr has wrestled under the names Velvet Sky (for TNA), Talia Madison, Miss Talia, Talia Doll and Talia.
Even though this young lady might look like a model, she has wrestled for Defiant Pro Wrestling, Georgia Wrestling Alliance, TNT Pro Wrestling, Universal Wrestling Association, Women's Extreme Wrestling and World Xtreme Wrestling besides TNA.
Plus she has held five womens wrestling titles and one tag team title.

So why did I do this?
To show the lack of depth in the WWE Diva roster as opposed to the TNA Knockout roster?
Yeah, a little.
It annoys me that with so much talent out there, the biggest company in wrestling feels like it needs to pull in models and dancers to fill it's ranks.

But it's also to show you that when you go out to these indy wrestling promotions and watch these ladies performing, you may be seeing the female wrestling superstars of tomorrow.
I cannot stress enough how much these young ladies put on the line every week just to do what they love, and give the people a good show.
Their lineage goes back to Mildred Burke, June Byers and the other great pioneers of women's wrestling.
