Re: FEIST: Women's Pro Wrestling
“Round One of the FEIST Main Event Championship Tournament II”
October 28th, 2009
Eyes on the Prize
The cameras opened up to an image of Lisa-Marie Varon, whom was standing backstage. Once the cameras began rolling, Varon began discussing her wrestling career so far, and how she had gone from ‘nothing to something.’ She then revealed how this could be her pinnacle, becoming the best women’s wrestler of the world today and by proving that, she would need to win the FEIST Main Event title, and, in her own words, prove her critics wrong. Varon admitted she would go through blood, sweat and tears to gain the title, and then began discussing her opponent in tonight’s headline match, Ayako Hamada. Although Varon showed great respect for her opponent, labelling her as ‘the woman everyone wants to prove themselves against’, Lisa then stated she was more than ready for tonight’s match, and hoped that Hamada could say the same.
Mickie James defeats Unpretty; Mickie advances on in the tournament
Stepping out from behind the curtains, Mickie James really got the fans hyped up for the upcoming show with an impressive victory over the ‘formerly known as Angel Orsini’, Unpretty. However, Unpretty put up quite a fight, stopping James’ early flow of momentum with a drop toehold into the ropes before squashing James in the corner with a charging body splash. But the fans were solely behind Mickie, and this allowed James to pick up the pieces with a diving Lou Thesz press and then a hangman’s neckbreaker, although neither could get the three. Unpretty managed to scout a Mickie-canrana with a defiant powerbomb, but her attempt at a moonsault missed its target, allowing Mickie to pick up the pieces with a beautiful tilt-a-whirl variant of the Mickie-DT for the three counts.
Daizee Haze defeats Katie Lea; Daizee advances on in the tournament
In what was a seriously competitive contest, Haze managed to find an opening to pin Katie Lea’s shoulders to the ground after struggling on through most of the match. A new side of Katie Lea was seen in this match, one that was tougher and more brutal than her WWE days, shown by a fierce neckbreaker over the second ring rope which kept Haze at bay through a large portion of the match. Katie piled on the pressure with some nice submission moves, including a leg held full nelson, but the fire in Haze began to burn, managing to dodge a lariat and taking Katie down with an elevated facebuster which swung the momentum her way. After a diving missile dropkick from Haze it looked like Katie was done for, but she somehow managed to kick out, before pushing Haze off a Mind Trip attempt and slamming her with a Samoan Drop. Lea then looked to finish things off with a spinning backbreaker, but Daizee escaped out the back before managing to take Katie down for a body scissors victory roll…and she obtained the pin counts! After the match, Haze went to shake Katie’s hand for her good effort in the contest, but Lea responded with a slap to the face followed by a vicious uranage backbreaker, leaving Haze floored.
Sara Del Rey defeats Daffney; Del Rey advances on in the tournament
The wacky Daffney certainly had her work cut out for her in this contest, as an adamant Del Rey looked for more than a victory- she wanted to prove an impact also, and that she did. Sara used her technical expertise to start off the match, and began dominating after a flapjack into the top rope hung Daffney out to dry. Some nice submissions followed, but Daffney began battling back and even managed to dropkick Del Rey in the knee and followed up with an impressive Shining Wizard! But whatever Daffney tried, including a handstand elbow drop, she couldn’t get the three counts. Daffney searched for the Lobotomy but Del Rey managed to spin around and pushed the ‘Scream Queen’ into the buckles. Daffney may have stopped hitting the buckles with her foot, but as she turned around, Sara was all ready and waiting with a beautiful rolling sole kick that KO’d Daffney for the three counts.
Singing to a New Tune
Before her match up against Awesome Kong, Jillian Hall stood centre stage in the ring and ‘had something to get off her chest.’ In response to her WWE gimmick, Hall stated that the ‘old bad singing, bad acting and bad wrestling Jillian was gone’ and now she is in FEIST, she is bringing a new persona with her. Hall then stated that this persona would be ‘brash, brutal and bolshie’ and would stop at nothing to make an impact. Hall even went as far as taunting- in her own words- the ‘fat freak of a woman’ Awesome Kong, and didn’t bat an eyelid when the two-hundred and seventy pounder stepped out for their contest to begin.
Awesome Kong defeats Jillian Hall; Kong advances on in the tournament
Following Hall’s in ring segment, the blonde athlete really did live up to her word, and put on a tremendous fight against Kong. Jillian managed to dislodge Kong’s footing from the uncomfortable top rope earlier on in the contest, and later on managed to drop toehold Kong into the second turnbuckle to allow herself to leap off the top rope with an awe-inspiring 450 Splash. But Kong is not a woman you want to get angry, and Jillian did just that with all her wild attempts. Power simply overcame beauty in this match, shown when Jillian went for an Irish Whip but Kong instead found an opening to short arm lariat Hall right onto her neck! As the closing moments came, Jillian managed to dodge out of an avalanche attempt, causing Kong to crash into the turnbuckles and stay there in a groggy position. In an exhausted manner, Jillian then looked for her handspring back elbow, but Kong ran into Jillian which caused her to fly face first onto the canvas off the body weight that Kong possesses! Kong then hooked the arms, lifted Jillian up vertically and then planted her with an Implant Buster, signalling that was all she wrote in this contest as the three counts soon ensued.
Watch and Learn
Michelle McCool is always a woman to rub her own accomplishments in other people’s faces, and on the way down to the ring, she found the perfect woman to do that to- Mickie James, who was in the process of thanking backstage staff for their kind words on her win against Unpretty. McCool confronted Mickie, saying that here in FEIST, she had no chance of stealing the spotlight from her. McCool told Mickie that in tonight’s match up against MsChif, Michelle would expose her opponent for the ‘washed up scum’ she is. James responded with a harrowing statement, ‘well why won’t you prove it’, but this only made McCool’s smirk grow wider, before she walked off after telling James to ‘watch and learn.’
Michelle McCool defeats MsChif; McCool advances on in the tournament
In a battle that shook the core of FEIST, Michelle McCool managed to pull out a victory against MsChif following what can be described as a very heated, very competitive contest. As the match up began, it was hard for each competitor to get the one up, with McCool searching for submissions but ‘Chif using her flexible body to wriggle her way out. McCool did manage to get the momentum on her side, however, after the battle spilled to the apron, and she managed to DDT MsChif face first on the hard surface! Soon, however, MsChif managed to gain momentum, and reversed her way out of a Faith Breaker with a body scissors ‘rana followed by a double leg Muta lock! Michelle screamed out but soon reached the ropes, and then managed to spin her way out of a Desecrator to boot MsChif square in the face. But she simply couldn’t get the three, and was taken off course when her attempts at a back body drop were thwarted by MsChif’s quick Code Green manoeuvre! But again, Michelle’s shoulder boosted off the mat, and then the fight spilled to the outside. Noticing the referee’s ring out count was on six, MsChif then scooped McCool up as if to slide her into the ring, but as she placed Michelle on the apron, Michelle battled back with fist shots and then booted MsChif into the barrier! McCool then slid into the ring at a count of nine, and MsChif ran forwards…but she was too late! Michelle had won by a ring out count, and had great pleasure in taunting ‘Chif of the victory thereafter!
The Fight of My Life
Backstage interviewer Lauren managed to catch up with Ayako Hamada, and her trusty translator, before the headline match up against Lisa-Marie Varon. In pure Japanese, Hamada gave her overview on the tournament, saying although she’s wrestled all over the world she was ‘a small fish in a big pond’ here at FEIST. But Hamada admitted she liked that, as it gave her grounds to prove herself, and tonight she would do all she could to do just that. Similarly to the earlier angle by Varon, Hamada showed respect towards her opponent, but said tonight she would stop at nothing to get victory- and if that involved ‘breaking a limb to do so’, then that would just have to be the case.
Lisa-Marie Varon defeats Ayako Hamada; Varon advances on in the tournament
The headline show isn’t headline for nothing, and these two girls put it all on the line in a match that lasted longer than forty minutes of complete back and forth action! Varon, an accomplished wrestler in herself, began the match on a high note, taking down Hamada with a variety of roll ups, but Hamada wasn’t in the mood for games, shown by a hard spin kick which blew the wind out of Lisa’s sails and sent her rolling to the arena floor! But after sensing a springboard moonsault and managing to knock Hamada over the top and to the outside, Varon took control, shown with a nicely executed hair pulled Gory lock. Yet it wasn’t long before Hamada built up momentum and almost pinned Varon with a sitout powerbomb that the momentum swung the opposite way. A tight Fujiwara bar almost put Varon on the brink of tapping, but soon she managed to stand and then amazingly reversed the move into a Spider’s Web! Varon tried desperately for a Triangle choke, but Hamada kept resisting, even managing to lift Lisa off the ground and then slam her into the buckles! However, as the final moments came, Varon escaped out of a Hamada Driver attempt and then hit a decimating shoot kick to the face, before dragging Hamada down into the Triangle Choke! A groggy Hamada had no choice but to tap as the hold was applied for over a minute, and Varon advanced through the tournament and ended the night in a high once again for FEIST broadcasting.
