Over the 4 years that I’ve been in the wrestling business and the opportunity to compete in the PWWA Interim Title Tournament is the biggest challenge that i’ve ever been faced with.
PWWA not only represents the best women wrestlers in Australasia, but helps to set the bar for women’s wrestling in general on an international level. This is why the tournament is so important…it gives all of us girls the chance to compete for the right to hold the belt, while current champion Madison Eagles is out with injury. This is a big deal, and I have been training hard to make sure that this shot at the title doesn’t slip through my fingers.
After my debut at the last PWWA show alongside my BFF Megan-Kate, us Kiwi girls were relatively unknown to most that keep up with women’s wrestling. We may have even been perceived as under dogs. We both proved that while coming from a small country, we do indeed pack a punch and also managed to become recognised on the international scene.
Megan and I have been a tag team for 2 years now, and we have always had each others backs. We work amazingly well together, and even won NZ’s title of Best Tag Team for 2011. She’s my bestie, and I don’t know what I’d do without her. So after the announcement that we’d be competing against one another in the first round, it’s understandable that I was in two minds about it. While Megan is my best friend, this tournament is such a big deal…not only to myself, but to the other girls as well. Including my partner. And with this being the first ever title opportunity for Megan and I, we both know that neither one of us is going to go easy on the other.
She might even be my toughest opponent to date; we both know each other so well. So come May 5th, the PWWA fans should expect a hard hitting match with neither one of us holding back…I know I won’t be.
