Cherokee Princess - English Female Professional Wrestlers

One of the most beautiful female wrestlers (IMHO) to ever grace the squared circle was British wrestler Cherokee Princess.
Yes I know that is a totally un-PC name now, but back then it was no big deal.
Despite the high probability that she was not Cherokee at all.
This lovely lady was usually a "jobber" and got beat on by some of the best in the UK.

One thing the fans loved was her incredible legs which she put to good use in her matches.

British Female Wrestler Lisa Fury Again

I did a short write up about British female wrestler Lisa Fury the other day, and here she is again with a brutal camel clutch locked in on fellow English female wrestler Sarah Messina.

Oddly enough, though the hold is called the camel clutch and was popularized by the Sheik here in the US, it was actually invented in Mexico by legendary luchador Gory Guerrero and was called la de a caballo (Horse-mounting choke).

Yeah you didn't need to know all that but now you do.

WWE Diva Flashback - Maria

Okay, Maria may not have been the best female wrestler the WWE ever had.
But she was one of the prettiest.
And she was a good actress.
And one of the best female "Jobbers" ever in the female roster.

WWE Diva Flashback - Maria

And though Maria has left the WWE, she hasn't left wrestling.
She is still going at it.
Maria has worked for Ring of Honor, Family Wrestling Entertainment (Where she was the FWE Women's Champion twice) and Chikara as the valet of her real-life boyfriend Mike Bennett.

She was active in the 1970s and 1980s but is retired now.
Although she was usually a "face", she did quite well for herself as a "heel".

Lisa Fury - English Female Professional Wrestlers

Born on November 24, 1982 in Liverpool, England, the beautiful Lisa Fury has been wrestling since 2002.
But I could have sworn it was longer than that. has been 12 years so.....
Anyway, Lisa was trained by Robbie Brookside and Alex Shane.
But before she even started her wrestling training she studied Ju-Jitsu.

Lisa Fury - English Female Professional Wrestlers

Even though she has wrestled in Europe for All Star Wrestling, Nu-Wrestling Evolution, Independent Wrestling Federation and several other Indy promotions, you may have seen her here in the States on WWE SmackDown back in 2009 as Lisa Taylor in a match against Beth Phoenix.

Erin Angel - English Female Professional Wrestlers

Despite the fact that here in the States we never hear anything about them until they get over here, Britain has a really good female wrestling scene.
And they have for quite a while.
Here we have had Jeannie Clark (okay...she was a valet and manager), Layla El, Paige and her mother Sweet Saraya, Katarina Waters (aka Katie Lea and Winter), Erin Angel, The Blossom Twins and probably more I am forgetting.

Erin Angel - English Female Professional Wrestlers

So I thought I would do some entries on some of these lovely female wrestlers from across the pond (and over here) starting with the four foot eleven knockout Erin Angel.
Erin Marshall was born on March 16th, 1987 in Southampton, England.

Erin debuted in 2003 and this little girl holds victories over some of the best including a win over Klondyke Kate, who weighs in at 322 pounds.
Okay she won by disqualification, but it's still pretty impressive.

Rebecca Knox-Becky Lynch in NXT

I did a write up on Irish female pro wrestler Rebecca Knox (real name Rebecca Quin) way back in 2008.
And I was pretty bummed that her career seemed to over due to an injury.

I was pleasantly surprised when she showed back up in Shimmer Women Athletes as the manager of Saraya and Britani Knight back in 2011.
And I am even happier now that Rebecca has shown back up as Becky Lynch in NXT!
Yeah I know I usually do Indy wrestlers here, but "Becky" did start out in the Indies.

It just shows that you cannot keep a good woman down.

At the time, I thought she was one of the most physically fit female wrestlers I had ever seen...and it doesn’t look like she has lost a bit of that.
How good is she in the ring?
Well she began wrestling training when she was 15 and she's 26 now....
I'm really hoping for the best and that the WWE will actually let her wrestle.

Female Wrestling - Reggie Bennett Before Wrestling

One of the fan favorites here is female pro wrestler Reggie Bennett.
But you know before Reggie got into wrestling, she was into bodybuilding.

She bulked up quite a bit for her wrestling career as you need to.
You need some cushion taking those constant bumps.
Of course back then they actually wrestled.

But as you can see from these pictures, when Reggie wanted to, she could be VERY sleek and muscular.
Reggie was born in 1961 (five days before me actually), made her pro wrestling debut in 1986 and retired from active wrestling in 2001.
But when Reggie went out, she went out with a bang.
Her retirement match was against one of the greatest wrestlers (male or female) of all time, Manami Toyota.

When Reggie was wrestling she held the All Japan Women's Pro-Wrestling All Pacific Championship, the IWA World Women's Championship and the Independent Wrestling Federation (IWF) Women's Championship three times.

Amber O'Neal - Women of Wrestling

The last entry I did Santana Garrett so I thought it would only be fair to do her tag-team partner Amber O'Neal this time.
I haven't done a write up on Amber since 2007, but she is still going strong if not stronger today, especially with the newly re-launched WOW! Women of Wrestling.

Amber O'Neal, WOW!, Women of Wrestling, wrestling

Like I mentioned last time, Amber is one half of the WOW Tag Team Champions, All American Girls, along with Santana.
Besides working with WOW, Amber is also the CEO and founder of CWF Mid-Atlantic ArenaChicks.

Before Daffney There Was Luna Vachon...

In the last post I was talking about how I loved the psycho female wrestlers and I mentioned Daffney as being the first.
But before Daffney debuted in 1999, the late Gertrude Elizabeth "Trudy" Vachon was being crazy before crazy was cool as Luna Vachon.

A member of the legendary French-Canadian wrestling family, the Vachons, Gertrude wanted to wrestle.
Her whole family (and her godfather Andre The Giant) tried to convince her not too but she wouldn't take no for an answer.
Finally they gave in and her aunt Vivian and later The Fabulous Moolah trained her.
She started out in Florida Championship Wrestling, as part of Kevin Sullivan's Army of Darkness stable teaming up with The Lock as the Daughters of Darkness.
Luna then went on to work for the WWF, ECW, the Indy Circuit and WCW.
Luna passed away on August 27, 2010 from an "accidental overdose of oxycodone and benzodiazepine".

Daffney - The Original Psycho?

Everyone knows how much I loved the "crazy" Victoria in the WWE.
But before we had the "crazy as a bit coon" Victoria, way back in the WCW we had Daffney, she of the ear-piercing scream (long before Melina's "Primal Scream").
Daffney made her debut in 1999 and was inspired partly by Natural Born Killers' Mallory (Juliette Lewis) and Batman: The Animated Series' Harley Quinn.
She held a few titles during her career, the Anarchy Championship Wrestling American Joshi Championship, the NWA Wrestle Birmingham Junior Heavyweight Championship and most notably, the WCW Cruiserweight Championship.

Of course later we had Victoria and looking at this picture, I think "Your Soul's Tormentor" MsChif owes more than a little to Daffney's look.
Actually, Daffney managed MsChif in Shimmer Women Athletes back in 2007.

Leilani Kai - WWF

Here is a blast from the past, Leilani Kai, aka Patricia Schroeder.
Although you may remember Leilani best for her work in the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), she also worked for All Japan Women's Pro-Wrestling (where she held the All Pacific Championship), Ladies Professional Wrestling Association (where she held the LPWA Tag Team Championship along with Judy Martin), the National Wrestling Alliance (she held the NWA World Women's Championship) and the Professional Girl Wrestling Association among others.
In the WWF she held the WWF Women's Championship and the WWF Women's Tag Team Championship (again with Judy Martin).

Alyssa Flash vs ....Raisha Saeed?

Here is a match from India's Ring Ka King wrestling promotion with Alyssa Flash taking on Raisha Saeed.

Yes I know that Ring Ka King is TNA's India brand, but Alyssa (or Cheerleader Melissa) is one of the best Indy wrestlers to ever grace the ring.
And yes I know that Cheerleader Melissa, Alyssa Flash and Raisha Saeed are all the same person.
So who's she wrestling?
Well look closely and you may recognize....him.
