SHOWCASE 1985

Live from: Las Vegas, Nevada

Once the cameras start rolling we get our first look at the WWW ring. The word that first comes to mind is … sponsorship. Each ring apron carries a different advertisement, with commercial stickers on each of the turnbuckle pads and a faded corporate logo on the white ring canvas as well.

Our commentator, David McLane is always sure to mention the company’s sponsors in the downtime before matches, along with the particular beverage he’s enjoying and the forthcoming company merchandise catalogue.

A lot of effort and money has also clearly been poured into the production values, be it the lights and music, the audio-visual quality or even the ring attire of the competitors.

The first fifteen minutes of the programme is taken up with fluff, covering the early meet-and-greet with the fans and babyface wrestlers, promoting the soon-to-debut weekly television show, showing off the company’s initial line-up of championship titles and so on.

The first match is for the WWW Fighting Spirit Championship. The silver plate, depicting an Amazonian warrior, sits on a dark red strap. The mysterious Medusa Miceli – done up in serpentine make up and green and purple ring gear – takes on the plucky underdog Susan Starr – in a simple sparkly pink singlet.

Medusa Miceli is dominant and vicious throughout and Susan Starr is, soon, obviously fighting only to prolong the inevitable. Medusa Miceli is happy to let this play out for a while, as it allows her to inflict more pain and punishment on her opponent.

Medusa Miceli defeats Susan Starr in 08:37 by pinfall after a German suplex to win the WWW Fighting Spirit Championship

After a brief interlude replaying the finish and a few spots and a snazzy little graphic giving away the details for the first scheduled defence of the newly won title – the 9th of December on television.

Afterwards, we establish the format for these events, as one of the company’s interviewers gets caught up with a dejected Susan Starr, who laments her loss but promises to do better next time. We then cut to the second interviewer who asks for Medusa Miceli’s thoughts – in a deliberate and cold manner, the inaugural champion explains that she cannot and will not ever lose.

The next match is between Debbie Combs and Penny Mitchell. The former is dressed in black and white ring gear beneath a sparkly gold jacket and latter is dressed similarly, only in purple and white and with a sparkly white jacket.

The fight is a little bit more competitive than the previous one, but Debbie Combs definitely comes across, throughout, as the stronger competitor. Despite having things mostly in hand, Debbie Combs still chooses to utilise underhanded tactics wherever possible, risking a disqualification and blowing up at the referee at one point – a move which ends up giving Penny Mitchell a roll-up and a close two count.

Debbie Combs defeats Penny Mitchell in 11:09 by pinfall after a neckbreaker

After another very brief interlude, the interviews get underway first with an angry Penny Mitchell who complains about her opponents dirty tactics and says she’ll be asking for a rematch and, second, with Debbie Combs who says she believes the match should put her in line for a world title shot.

Our third match puts the current NWA Texas Women’s Champion, Velvet McIntyre, up against Despina Montagas though, as the commentator explains, the match is non-title. Velvet McIntyre wrestles barefoot, in a leopard print singlet, and Despina Montagas wrestles in a black and gold tunic. Velvet McIntyre despatches her opponent with relative ease, only occasionally hindered by the cheating wiles of Despina Montagas.

When we get to the interview stage, Despina Montagas angrily refuses to even be interviewed and Velvet McIntyre uses her time to challenge the comments of Debbie Combs, saying that the world title shot should belong to her instead.

Next up, our first tag team match, puts the Nasty Girls up against the Star Girls for the vacant NWA World Women’s Tag Team Championship. Comprised of Linda Dallas and Kat LeRoux, the Nasty Girls wear blue singlets and white headbands. Rockin’ Robin and Jamie West, instead wear a white and orange get up, bringing Stetsons to the ring with them for their cowgirl-based Star Girls team.

The match is fast-paced, dramatic and competitive, with Jamie West as the face-in-peril and Rockin’ Robin as the crowd-pleasing hero. After a gruelling contest, however, the savagery and sneakiness of Linda Dallas and Kat LeRoux finally pays off for them and they take home the gold.

Linda Dallas & Kat LeRoux defeat Rockin’ Robin & Jamie West in 14:42 when Linda Dallas pins Jamie West with her feet on the ropes to win the NWA World Women’s Tag Team Championship

During the interlude, we are given the date of the next scheduled match for the title – the 26th of December.

The interview with the – sweaty and teary-eyed – Star Girls reveals that they plan to keep their newly formed team together for a long time to come. The Nasty Girls relish their victory, essentially hijacking their interview, to smear the fans and their opponents and issue an open challenge to the rest of the WWW roster.

The penultimate match is a low-intensity buffer between the two championship matches. Rhonda Singh, wearing her black and silver face paint and a matching singlet, faces Vicky Carranza – in a blue and white singlet. Singh secures the victory after a back-and-forth contest.

Rhonda Singh defeats Vicky Carranza in 09:11 by pinfall after a splash

After the interlude and a brief Spanish-language interview with Vicky Carranza, Rhonda Singh announces that she will be challenging for the television title on Wednesday.

With some amount of fanfare, the main event gets underway in an explosive fashion. Wendi Richter – in a blue singlet with black stripes – has decided to make a statement and attempts to blitz Misty Blue Simmes – in American red, white and blue – with several big moves right out of the gate, followed by a handful of increasingly desperate pinfall attempts.

At the five-minute mark it becomes obvious that this is not a winning strategy so, after a brief period with Misty Blue Simmes on top, Wendi Richter changes tack and the champ starts wearing her opponent down with holds and moves generally designed to tire her out.

Wendi Richter generally avoids playing dirty, but she does leave a few five counts dangerously close. Misty Blue Simmes is not so ruthless, however, and it probably is what makes the difference in the end.

The show ends after the final set of interviews, with Misty Blue Simmes who vows to never give up and Wendi Richter who demands Misty Blue Simmes be sent to the back of the queue.

Fun event.  Enjoyed the attention to the commercial aspect of this promotion.  Fom the promos on the turnbuckles to the discussion of the beverages, we see that WWW is doing everything it can to be financially viable.  

As for the action, great job putting your roster in some sort of order from top to bottom.  Can't wait to see the debut of some of the other stars.  You have some real powerhouses and I wonder where you are going to place them.  Medusa, Misty and Richter seem to be the top but could see Linda Dallas and Kat steal the show.

Wonder Women of Wrestling – Episode No. I – 2nd of December 1985 – Airing Live! – Las Vegas, Nevada

Advertised Match:

Velvet McIntyre versus Debbie Combs for the No. 1 Contendership to the NWA World Women’s Championship

Our night is kicked off with an advertisement for the promotion’s new merchandise catalogue, after a brief snazzy video package offering brief shots of each of the contracted wrestlers. Getting what she asked for, Rhonda Singh is in competition in our first bout, squaring off against the debuting Candice Pardue for the television title.

With Penny Mitchell in her corner, Candice Pardue initially appears able to overcome her fears and hesitation about going up against such an intimidating opponent. Confidence is only able to carry her so far, however, as Rhonda Singh takes firm control after the five-minute mark, delivering big moves that leave Candice Pardue feeling weak and winded.

Rhonda Singh defeats Candice Pardue in 07:56 by pinfall after a body splash to win the WWW Television Championship

Rhonda Singh proceeds to beat on her fallen opponent, mostly with stomps and kicks until Penny Mitchell rushes in to intervene – landed mean punch to the face, enraging the new champion – just before officials are able to swarm in and separate the two.

A sponsorship serves as our brief interlude before the interviews commence. Candice Pardue is a little too beaten up and/or reticent to speak, so Penny Mitchell speaks for her, promising to avenge her loss. Rhonda Singh, for her part, is happy to grant her that opportunity. That match, it would appear, is on for next week.

A commercial break follows before we settle in for some six-woman action. Judy Martin, Despina Montagas and Liz Chase, face stiff opposition from Desiree Petersen, Susan Starr and Winona Little Heart. The narrative of the match quickly emerges: the faces have the energy, the athleticism and even the power but the heels have the wiles. Without some other form of unfair advantage, Judy Martin comes up short.

Desiree Petersen & Susan Starr & Winona Little Heart defeat Judy Martin & Despina Montagas & Liz Chase in 11:38 when Susan Starr pins Judy Martin after a missile dropkick to win the WWW Trios Championship

The interlude this time is promotional video for the face of the company, Wendi Richter. The interviews follow and Judy Martin surprisingly offers us a humble comment: “I suppose, well, they were just the better team on the night.” Liz Chase and Despina Montagas appear, respectively, angry and disgusted by this comment.

The new champions are thrilled and bubbly, chattering over each in their excitement. The promise is heard, through the noise, however, that they plan to stay together as a unit for a long time to come.

Our break takes us to our final match. The main event is familiar to anyone who has followed the career of either woman. The opening five minutes is full of counters and reversals, with a few shots landing here and there, divided evenly between the two. Debbie Combs is the first to make a serious play. Unfortunately for her, it’s a trap and the opening she tries to take advantage of leads to armbar that almost ends the contest right then and there.

With her opponent sufficiently rattled, Velvet McIntyre goes in for the kill and bombards her with knees to the gut, arm drag takedowns and open palm strikes. Converting a flying crossbody into a pin, Debbie Combs is unprepared for the kick out at one and a lapse in concentration is all her opponent needs to put her away with a quick pin of her own.

With no time for interviews, we go off the air on a still of a now jubilant Velvet McIntyre.

Interesting show as the angles and feuds begin to develop.  Was interested to see if the Trios Championship was going to be Luchador style or a more traditional 6 person tag title.  I must admit that it is going to be hard to take the title from Richter as right now the company needs a big name to get it going.  This promotion adds such a different twist to our product that it is really fun to read and follow.  Awesome job getting this started!

Wonder Women of Wrestling – Episode No. II – 9th of December 1985 – Airing Live! – Las Vegas, Nevada

Advertised Match:

Medusa Miceli versus Desiree Petersen for the WWW Fighting Spirit Championship

After the glitzy opening video package, we come to our first match as Rhonda Singh looks to make her first defence of the television championship against Trudy Vachon.

Decked out in silver and white, Trudy Vachon fights the good fight, getting a few hits in here and there, but she poses little threat to Rhonda Singh, who demolishes her quite handily.

Rhonda Singh defeats Trudy Vachon in 08:12 by pinfall after a body splash to retain the WWW Television Championship

After a promotional package for the December supercard, promising us Wendi Richter versus Velvet McIntyre, we get to the interviews. The soft-spoken and polite Trudy Vachon plans to learn from here defeat and to better next time. Rhonda Singh demands to know, presumably from Pat Patterson, how make defences she’ll need to make of the television title before she’s entitled to a shot at the world championship.

After a commercial break, we open back up on a tag team bout. Liz Chase and Judy Martin are up against Jaime West and Rockin’ Robin, with both teams desperate to make up for their recent losses. The heels go into the match with a massive advantage, however, in the form of their new secret weapon – Leilani Kai.

Whereas the faces display energy, tenacity and determination, the cheating tactics of Liz Chase and Judy Martin, aided both legally and illegally by Leilani Kai, proves to be far too much for the girls to handle.

Liz Chase & Judy Martin defeat Jamie West & Rockin’ Robin in 11:36 when Judy Martin pins Jamie West after a fireman’s carry slam

We get another look at a recent photoshoot with Wendi Richter before moving onto the obligatory interviews. Jamie West and Rockin’ Robin complain about their opponents’ cheating tactics and claim they would’ve won otherwise. Liz Chase and Judy Martin are joined by Despina Montagas and their new mouthpiece and captain Leilani Kai, who promises to lead the faction to utterly dominate the promotion.

The main event comes after the second commercial break. In the corner of the challenger is Susan Starr, who offers advice to her partner throughout the match, neutralising some of Medusa Miceli’s tactics. Even with this little bit of help, however, Desiree Petersen is pushed to her limits and never seems to be able to hold the advantage.

Medusa Miceli fights with an increased sense of ruthlessness and viciousness as soon as she realises that her opponent’s resolve is beginning to falter.

Once again, with no time left for interviews, we go off the end on a still of the victorious champion.

I'm really enjoying this new aspect to our game.  I think you have done a great job of getting your roster in order and we are seeing the stars rise to the top.  I don't know too much about some of the people but I laughed at the idea of Trudy Vachon.  I have only known her as crazy Luna.  I also like that you have kept the same format as Houston.  It is so easy to follow.

Wonder Women of Wrestling – Episode No. III – 16th of December 1985 – Airing Live! – Las Vegas, Nevada

Advertised Match:

Velvet McIntyre versus Rhonda Singh

The programme opens, after a flashy promotional music video, on a match for the television title between Rhonda Singh and Winona Little Heart. The commentators explain that Pat Patterson has granted Rhonda Singh a shot at the world title, provided she can beat Velvet McIntyre in the main event after fulfilling her obligations as the television champion.

Clearly desirous of a swift end to the contest, Rhonda Singh brutalises her opponent with a series of body slam before going for an overambitious pin attempt. The champion’s growing frustration and impatience gives Winona Little Heart a brief opening and she heads up to the top turnbuckle, only to have her flying crossbody turned into a scoop slam when she’s caught.

The interviews commence after a merchandise advert. Winona Little Heart is quiet and contrite, whereas Rhonda Singh is aggressive and boastful, promising to batter Velvet McIntyre black and blue and then to dethrone Wendi Richter.

A commercial break takes us to the promotion’s first eight-woman tag team match, as Leilani Kai, Judy Martin, Despina Montagas and Liz Chase face Desiree Petersen, Susan Starr, Jamie West and Rockin’ Robin.

Serving as a showcase for Leilani Kai and a preview of potential trios’ title match, the heels hold the decisive edge throughout, with the part of the face-in-peril mainly being played by the crowd pleasing Rockin’ Robin. Competitive and fun, it comes to a conclusion with a bit of cheating after a big boot.

Leilani Kai & Judy Martin & Despina Montagas & Liz Chase defeat Desiree Petersen & Susan Starr & Jamie West & Rockin’ Robin in 12:04 when Leilani Kai pins Jaime West with her feet on the ropes

When we come to the interviews, the faces are frazzled and teary-eyed, clearly ruined about the night’s implications for a potential trios’ title defence. The heels, by contrast, are ecstatic, fawning and gushing over Leilani Kai, who promises to keep their success going forever.

A final commercial break moves us on to the main event.

The story of the match develops early on. Rhonda Singh has the size and strength advantage but she’s not 100%, following her title defence earlier in the night. Velvet McIntyre has intelligence on her side and tries to tire her opponent out at every opportunity, with Irish whips and even the occasional heelish trip to the outside.

The contest culminates with a spot replicating the finish of the opening match. Velvet McIntyre heads up to the top rope, seemingly for a crossbody. Rhonda Singh feigns being disoriented before snapping to attention and opening her arms to catch her once she’s in the air.

Instead of a crossbody, however, Rhonda Singh takes a missile dropkick to the chest.

We end on a shot of an enraged Rhonda Singh and a joyous Velvet McIntyre.

I really like the format here, easy to read and easy to follow.

Hoping to see Rockin' Robin get a bigger push soon!

Also, more Linda Dallas and Kat Leroux!!!

Singh having to work twice to get her title shot is a good angle, and Velvet switching to a missile dropkick when Rhonda thought the crossbody was coming is a great finish.

I really like the format and look of this promotion. 

Good choice with Richter being the franchise. She defiantly has a lot of challenges ahead. 

It's great to see Leilani Kai immediately making a splash. 

Keep up the great work!

Wonder Women of Wrestling – Episode No. IV – 23rd of December 1985 – Airing Live! – Las Vegas, Nevada

Advertised Match:

Wendi Richter & Debbie Combs versus Velvet McIntyre & Misty Blue Simmes

The programme opens as usual but with advertisements specifically for the upcoming December Supercard interspersed. The opening match sees Penny Mitchell looking to make good on her threat two weeks prior to avenge her protégé Candice Pardue’s loss to the television champion.

The contest is competitive, with the slight edge actually going to Penny Mitchell. A particularly nasty spot changes everything, however, when Rhonda Singh uses the ring ropes to choke her opponent out. In her mentor’s corner, Candice Pardue becomes increasingly upset as such tactics continue throughout the match.

Eventually, it appears that Rhonda Singh has decided to seek a disqualification, one way or another, as she refuses to break another choke on the top rope. Just before the five count, Candice Pardue socks the champion square in the face.

After the interlude we come to the interviews. A hoarse Penny Mitchell promises to give Rhonda Singh a receipt the next time they meet. For her part, Rhonda Singh is enraged and demands she be given an opportunity to get revenge on Candice Pardue.

A commercial break takes us to our second championship bout of the night as Rockin’ Robin challenges Medusa Miceli for the fighting spirit title.

The champion wrestles circles around the plucky babyface, allowing her brief hope spots as much to torture her as anything.

Medusa Miceli defeats Rockin’ Robin in 10:02 by pinfall after a German suplex to retain the WWW Fighting Spirit Championship

Fittingly, in the interviews, Rockin’ Robin appears utterly dispirited until Jamie West appears to lighten the mood and declare 1986 to be the year of the Star Girls. Medusa Miceli is asked who she would like to face on Saturday and, interestingly, replies that she would like to offer Trudy Vachon a rematch, though she refuses to explain why.

Another commercial break takes us to the main event, with Wendi Richter coming out last.

The structure of the match would be familiar to fans of Houston Wrestling, with a narrative as follows; Wendi Richter is the strongest competitor in the match overall, but the faces have a far easier time communicating and cooperating with one another.

Everyone gets time to shine and each of the four arrangements of opponents is given a good showing. The finish comes after one too many arguments causes Debbie Combs to abandon the match and refuse to tag in to relieve an exhausted Wendi Richter.

We end, ahead of the Saturday Supercard and its world championship main event, on the visual of the challenger pinning the champion.

Wonder Women Wrestling

DECEMBER SUPERCARD 1985

Live from: Las Vegas, Nevada

With footage from a run of television at their disposal, along with professional photoshoots, the opening video package is snazzier than ever, with the promotion’s many sponsors frequently credited, and the star of the show – Wendi Richter – given a heavy emphasis.

The opening contest is for the tag team titles, pitting the reigning champions, the Nasty Girls, against the mentor-trainee pairing of Penny Mitchell and Candice Pardue. The match gets off to a roaring start with fast-paced action and neither team in possession of a clear advantage.

Past the five-minute mark, however, things start picking up for the faces, with a three close two-count and the Nasty Girls being forced to resort to time-wasting just to survive. This pays off for them when an enraged Rhonda Singh storms to the ring and yanks Candice Pardue off the apron.

Penny Mitchell & Candice Pardue defeat Linda Dallas & Kat LeRoux in 09:01 by disqualification after interference from Rhonda Singh and the NWA World Women’s Tag Team Championship does not change hands

With the bell ringing, Rhonda Singh goes to town, taking a steel chair to the knee of Candice Pardue several times before a hoard of officials can tear it away from her and escort her backstage and, per an update later given by the commentators, out of the arena.

We cut to an advertisement for the Wonder Women Wrestling merchandise catalogue before getting to the interviews.

The Nasty Girls are informed that Pat Patterson is considering rescheduling the match for later in the show and they become apoplectic, screaming that the match is over and that they should be done for the night.

The interview with the victors takes place in the medic’s office, with Candice Pardue being tended to. She promises that she’ll be 100% in no time at all and wants to take advantage of Pat Patterson’s offer. Penny Mitchell urges her to reconsider this, but her mind is firmly made up.

The second match sees Rockin’ Robin – on a demoralising losing streak – up against Despina Montagas. With three women in her corner, compared to just one for her opponent, Despina Montagas has a distinct advantage and presses this at every turn, with a foot pool or sucker punch from the outside at seemingly every turn.

For some babyfaces in the back, in particular Desiree Petersen, Susan Starr and Winona Little Heart, this all eventually becomes a bit too much and run down to turn the tables. The resulting altercation catches Despina Montagas off-guard and Rockin’ Robin takes full advantage.

Rockin’ Robin defeats Despina Montagas in 08:35 by pinfall with a schoolboy roll-up

After a familiar interlude, the interviews commence, and Despina Montagas predictably rants and raves about being distracted by the blatant outside interference of the back-up faces. Rockin’ Robin cherishes her victory and celebrates with Jamie West.

Next up is a re-run of the tag team title match. Linda Dallas and Kat LeRoux clearly resent even being there and wear sourpuss expressions that turn into looks of ruthless determination in short order. The match initially plays out like a tighter and stiffer version of their earlier go-round before morphing into a different narrative.

Penny Mitchell is clearly reluctant to tag Candice Pardue in too often and, as a result, becomes far more exhausted and worn down than either of her opponents – eliminating the advantage that the babyfaces seemed to have.

Penny Mitchell seems to be vindicated in the end when she tags her partner in for the last time and, after considerable targeting of the knee, completely falls apart.

Linda Dallas & Kat LeRoux defeat Penny Mitchell & Candice Pardue in 14:21 when Linda Dallas submitted Candice Pardue with a single leg crab to retain the NWA World Women’s Tag Team Championship

When get to the interviews, Penny Mitchell covers for a teary Candice Pardue as says she believes that they would’ve won the titles earlier in the night with Rhonda Singh had not interfered. Linda Dallas and Kat LeRoux are equal parts overjoyed and angry, lathering themselves with praise for overcoming an attempt to screw them out of their titles and mocking the faces for failing to take advantage of a second chance.

A more traditional bout comes next, with Misty Blue Simmes and Debbie Combs taking each other to the limit. The match is even, interactive and relatively clean with a fan-pleasing outcome to top it off.

Misty Blue Simmes defeats Debbie Combs in 15:43 by pinfall after a diving splash

A video package plays, hyping up the main event, before we get to the interviews. An angry Debbie Combs refuses to be interviewed and Misty Blue Simmes says she expects to be back in the world title picture regardless of the outcome of tonight’s main event.

The penultimate match is for the fighting spirit title, with Medusa Miceli facing her hand-picked opponent of Trudy Vachon in a curious rematch.

As might be expected, Medusa Miceli brutalises her opponent and uses the match as a showcase for her move set, savagely punishing every turn-around, counter, reversal and kickout. Just before the finish we get a well-rehearsed spot as Trudy Vachon nails the champion with an uppercut out of nowhere that sends her into the corner.

Medusa Miceli rises to her feet with hatred in her eyes and blood dripping from her mouth, tying Trudy Vachon in knots before she can capitalise on the wound and finishing the match.

Medusa Miceli defeats Trudy Vachon in 10:59 by pinfall after a German suplex to retain the WWW Fighting Spirit Championship

After a video package, we get to the interviews. Just as Trudy Vachon begins to speak, however, she is blindsided by an attack from an enraged and bloody Medusa Miceli. Pinning her to the concrete floor, Medusa Miceli takes a pair of clippers to her victim’s scalp, messily shaving her head half bald before stomping a mudhole in her.

After taking a few moments to let that settle in, we move on to the main event. With Velvet McIntyre trying to dethrone Wendi Richter, we get a long, well-paced and technically minded bout. The power advantage goes to Wendi Richter, the agility advantage goes to Velvet McIntyre, so it all seems to come down to who wants it more.

The finish comes after a missed flying crossbody from the challenger.

Wendi Richter defeats Velvet McIntyre in 21:26 by pinfall after a powerbomb to retain the NWA World Women’s Championship

This time around with have an opportunity for interviews. Velvet McIntyre claims she took the champ to the limit but, all the same, that the better woman won, and she needs to step up her game. Wendi Richter is haughty as all get-out and claims that she’s untouchable, a cut above every other woman in the company and, on that note, the show goes off air.

Greatt show.  I thought Patterson coming out and restarting the tag match was great booking.  Trudy with the big uppercut shows she is progressign nicely.  Great job developing the babyface vs heel stables.

Wonder Women of Wrestling – Episode No. V – 30th of December 1985 – Airing Live! – Las Vegas, Nevada

Advertised Match:

Velvet McIntyre & Desiree Petersen & Susan Starr & Rockin’ Robin & Jamie West versus Linda Dallas & Kat LeRoux & Leilani Kai & Judy Martin & Liz Chase

After a lightning-quick recap of the December Supercard, the show kicks off in the traditional fashion with a match for the television title. Rhonda Singh looks to defend against the plucky underdog Winona Little Heart.

Overconfident, Rhonda Singh ends up letting a few too many things slip, and the contest becomes far more competitive than either she or the audience were expecting. Winona Little Heart doesn’t let her success go to her head, however, and she plays a smart strategy trying to take the champion off her feet whenever possible and escape as many dangerous holds and slams as she can.

To Rhonda Singh’s infinite rage, the finish comes when Penny Mitchell appears at the entrance ramp. She doesn’t come down to the ring, but her arrival is enough to distract her nemesis and net Winona Little Heart a flash pinfall, with a kickout coming a split second after the three.

After the interlude, neither interview consists of much coherent thought, as Rhonda Singh paces about, screaming at the top of her lungs and throwing chairs and other bits of miscellaneous arena equipment and Winona Little Heart is overwhelmed by joy and the adulation of her cheering stablemates.

After the commercial break, we get to see the debut of Candi Devine. She comes to the ring costumed in a leopard print singlet and a black feather boa draped around her neck. Her opponent, Vicky Carranza, puts in a decent performance but the match is largely a showcase for the debutant, who gets most of the offence.

A brief recap of Wendi Richter’s recent title defence comes next, before a short Spanish-language interview with Vicky Carranza. In her segment, Candi Devine says she’s here to make a mark and has aspirations of becoming the world champion.

After the second commercial break, we’re onto the main event, fun ten-woman tag match, replete with elaborate spots and lots of crowd interaction and ringside brawling. Everyone gets some time to shine and the showdown ends predictably, with the biggest babyface getting the pin.

With that, the commentators wish everyone a happy new year and we go off the air.

Wonder Women of Wrestling – Episode No. VI – 6th of January 1986 – Airing Live! – Las Vegas, Nevada

Advertised Match:

Desiree Petersen & Susan Starr & Winona Little Heart versus Leilani Kai & Judy Martin & Liz Chase for the WWW Trios Championship

The company’s latest opening promotional video includes the phrase “THE STARS OF 1986” and tires to sell the pace of the in-ring action and the glamour of the women involved.

The opening bout sees Winona Little Heart look to defend her new television title in a rematch against the former champion Rhonda Singh. The early going of the match looks good for Winona Little Heart. She has fire in her belly, desperate to cement herself as the new television champion and get it done quickly.

Set to fight again the main event, to help defend her trios title, the champion knows she cannot afford to have the contest be dragged out. Rhonda Singh is intimately aware of this, as well, and the commentators inform us that Penny Mitchell has been banned from ringside for the duration of the match, per Pat Patterson’s orders.

In the end, Winona Little Heart comes up short.

In a rage, Rhonda Singh refuses to let up once the bell rings, however, and she beats her opponent bloody. Winona Little Heart’s stablemates eventually rush down to the ring to chase Rhonda Singh away.

Making her way to the back, Rhonda Singh is jumped by Penny Mitchell who gives the startled and exhausted champ a beating of her own before staff are able to regain control of the situation.

With no time for interviews, we cut to commercial. The following match is features three debutants, along with Trudy Vachon – returning to action with a full head of hair after a vicious attack at the supercard.

Along with her partner, Selina Majors, Trudy Vachon is going up against Brittany Brown and Ashley Kennedy. The heavily scripted and rehearsed match is a very traditional affair, with an even level of offence from the two teams and quick tags in and out.

The finish comes when a particularly nasty Brittany Brown ends up tearing the wig from Trudy Vachon’s head. Despite Selina Majors’ best efforts to coax her distraught tag partner back into the match, Trudy Vachon flees, even knocking Selina Majors onto her back, flat on the hard ramp.

After a brief interlude, we go to the interviews. With Trudy Vachon nowhere to be seen, Selina Majors claims that she had the match won and that she wants the chance to bring a new partner to a rematch. The heels cackle with glee at the fate of Trudy Vachon, rebuff Selina Majors demand for a rematch, and claim they are ready to challenge the Star Girls.

Our second commercial break takes us to the six-woman main event.

The story of the match is built up right from the off, focusing on the weakness of Winona Little Heart – not properly recovered from her earlier beatdown – and the addition of the exceptionally wily Leilani Kai to the heel side.

Predictably, the contest ends with Winona Little Heart finally tagging in to relieve her outmatched partners, only to be completely demolished by a sadistic Leilani Kai.

With no time for interviews, we go off the air on the image of a jubilant heel trio, joined by their faction’s fourth member, Despina Montagas.

Interesting show.  Winona with a tough night.

Like the title set up and the amount of title matches on each show.  Like I have said to Gene who does a great job of making each match so important on his cards, you are making this new venture very interesting as each match has meaning.

Trudy without the wig... I wonder how she will ever make it in this industry being so sensitive... lol/

Your show has left with a question that maybe you would know.... How common was blood in women's wrestling at the time.  Just trying to learn more.  I loved that you added it as it makes this seem so real and nothing like the GLOW that we saw in 86.

Wonder Women of Wrestling – Episode No. VII – 13th of January 1986 – Airing Live! – Las Vegas, Nevada

Advertised Match:

Medusa Miceli versus Velvet McIntyre for the WWW Fighting Spirit Championship and the NWA Texas Women’s Championship

A typically snazzy video package gets us started on another week of action from our Wonder Women. The first match sees a debuting Babyface Nellie taking on the monstrous television champion Rhonda Singh.

The match serves initially as a showcase for Babyface Nellie, letting her display her move set and give the champ a bit of a scare. A surprise powerslam is all it takes for the bigger and stronger Rhonda Singh to completely turn the tables on the challenger.

After a brief sponsored interlude, we get to the interviews. Babyface Nellie promises to improve her technique and get the better of Rhonda Singh at the nearest opportunity.

Rhonda Singh is asked about her non-title match at the upcoming January Supercard, against Penny Mitchell. She claims that she has asked Pat Patterson for a steel cage!

After that bombshell we cut to a commercial break, and then onto a tag team match teased the previous week, with the new team of Brittany Brown and Ashly Kennedy taking on the increasingly impressive team of Rockin’ Robin and Jamie West.

Fitting their recent successes, the faces hold the advantage throughout and use the match as a showcase to foreshadow a possible challenge for the tag titles. The current champions Linda Dallas and Kat LeRoux sit at the commentary booth for this match and mercilessly mock and denigrate them.

After the match, the tag champs predictably descend on the ring and, with the help of the match’s sore losers, give the Star Girls and nasty kicking until an army of staff members can regain control of the situation and we cut to a commercial break.

The main event is a spectacular contest, designed to be as exciting as possible, with both women going at a break-neck pace to deliver their offence. Neither participant has a clear advantage and even the finish is an extremely close three count.

P.S. Thanks for the feedback, everyone! I'll start responding to it in the postscript from now on (I generally want to be in the habit of only posting in the thread to update it with content and I couldn't think of a good way to mix in miscellaneous comments).

I'm not an expert by any means, but I've certainly never come across blood in 80s American women's wrestling, replacing 80s with 90s and American with Japanese is a different story of course.

I think blood is very important in professional wrestling, however, and the extent to which a company is be booked to meet my personal preferences is the extent to which it will indulge in a meaningful dash of blood. You'll notice that I have been ambiguous as to the finer details of broadcasting and venue - this is precisely because I am far from confident as to the viability of a product the likes of which I am producing (outside of a niche market).

Sitting here on a Saturday trying to catch up on everyone's stuff and I really enjoy the overall look, feel, and serious tone of this promotion. You're definitely doing right by the ladies!

Wonder Women of Wrestling – Episode No. VIII – 20th of January 1986 – Airing Live! – Las Vegas, Nevada

Advertised Match:

Medusa Miceli versus Winona Little Heart

The show gets started straight away with a debuting Lady Apache taking on the apparent gatekeeper of the promotion, Rhonda Singh. For added spice, Penny Mitchell is on commentary and takes every opportunity to degrade and enrage the champion at every turn.

The result is a match which is far closer than would generally be expected, as Rhonda Singh is unbalanced and distracted by her rival’s antics at various points. It’s not enough for the challenger, however, and the champion’s foul mood eventually boils over and ends in a bizarre of savage offence.

Afterwards, Rhonda Singh storms over to the announce desk and pulls Penny Mitchell out and over it, tossing her against the ring apron and then stomping a mudhole in her. By the time enough staff members and babyfaces have appeared to tear her away, time for interviews has elapsed and we cut to a commercial break.

We return for tag team action, with Rockin’ Robin and Jamie West looking to truly redeem themselves with a decisive victory over an intimidating team – in the form of Leilani Kai and Judy Martin.

In traditional crowd-pleasing form, the contest plays out slowly and evenly until the chaotic finish. The Nasty Girls rush down to the ring to take out the babyfaces. Kat LeRoux distracts the referee, whilst Linda Dallas gets on the ring apron to deliver a blow to the face-in-peril Rockin’ Robin.

Leilani Kai brings Rockin’ Robin up for an Irish whip, but it gets reversed. With the heel now hurtling towards her, Linda Dallas leans away without realising that Jamie West has made her way over. With a simple hair pull, she manages to bring the foreheads of Leilani Kai and Linda Dallas to a violent collision.

Kat LeRoux rushes over to check on her fallen partner, freeing the referee up to count the subsequent pin attempt.

After an interlude, filled with merchandise shilling and promotional clips, we get to the interviews. Leilani Kai is seething with rage, demanding the chance, interestingly enough, on the Nasty Girls. The faces, by contrast, are ecstatic and promise to take the tag team titles at the supercard.

A second commercial break takes us to the main event. Medusa Miceli comes to the ring with a sour expression on her face, clearly still angry about the loss of her championship. Winona Little Heart, on the other hand, is all smiles as she looks forward to capitalising on the opportunity afforded to her by her brief reign as television champ.

The narrative of the match develops quickly, with Winona Little Heart taking advantage of every slip-up her emotionally unbalanced opponent makes and Medusa Miceli in turn tortures with holds and abuses the five count on rope breaks.

Eventually, Medusa Miceli’s intensity makes the difference.

The programme ends on the image of a vicious and victorious monstress.

P.S. Thanks again for the feedback! Also, I've just noticed that I randomly started misspelling Jamie West's name, so I'll go back and fix that.
