Our Debut Show!|
Featuring G.L.O.R.Y. Girls: Alicia, Ariel, Sonya Blackhawk, Allison Danger, Macaela Mercedes and Syren. Special Guest: Gregg Spitz. Referee: Dylan Black. Ring Announcer: Kevin Kage.
In less than three years, G.L.O.R.Y. Wrestling has progressed from a Web site strictly devoted to bringing fans profiles on the best indy women in the wrestling business...to a meeting place for fans and wrestlers...to a promotional vehicle for the ladies to be noticed and brought to the attention of promoters and other wrestling industry insiders. And now, a new era begins for G.L.O.R.Y. Wrestling as we introduce the very first G.L.O.R.Y. Wrestling show especially for you: the fans of the "hardest working ladies in professional wrestling"!
G.L.O.R.Y. Girls "Breakin' Out" is the first in a series of G.L.O.R.Y. Wrestling shows which we will be bringing to you over the next several months. The IWF Centre in West Paterson, NJ turned into the G.L.O.R.Y. Arena on March 29th, 2003, when we brought together six of the most popular G.L.O.R.Y. Girls to fight it out "between the ropes" in all-out, non-stop action for their place in the G.L.O.R.Y. Girl hierarchy. No fans, no distractions...just the beautiful and athletic G.L.O.R.Y. Girls going at it tooth and nail as our cameras caught all the action.
Two digital cameras--one roving alongside the ring apron and another raised stationary camera to cover the entire squared-circle--captured it all on beautifully clear digital tape. Excellent video quality compared to most of the taped indy action available today. (For those who purchased the G.L.O.R.Y. Convention 2002 video, you'll see a huge difference in the video and sound quality here.)
But we know what you are really interested in: THE ACTION!...
Match 1) Alicia vs. Allison Danger: A grudge rematch starts things off as Alicia and Allison Danger finally get together to settle their match which was interrupted at last year's G.L.O.R.Y. Convention. Alicia tells Allison that she is looking forward to meeting her again for a good, clean, competitive match without any interference. Ms. Danger's reply was less than polite as she tells Alicia that she didn't need any help last year and she certainly doesn't need any help NOW. A sucker punch from Allison straight to the jaw of her young opponent catches the cameramen, the ring announcer and the referee by surprise. By the time the bell rings, Allison is all over Alica and it's obvious that this is going to be more of a brawl than a wrestling match! Alicia--looking good in her new black pants and bodysuit outfit--takes a heck of a beating as Danger eye-gouges, chokes and stomps away. At one point, the young blonde warrior finds herself trapped in the corner while her opponent grinds the bottom of her wrestling boot into her face. But don't think Alicia takes it all lying down. She gets in her share of ring-rattling chops to Allison's chest, as well as fists to the stomach and more. This grudge has been hanging around since the first G.L.O.R.Y. Convention...it finally gets settled right here!
While many of you chat online, email or banter on the G.L.O.R.Y. Message Board with a lot of the girls, they told us that they would love to have the chance to talk to their fans "live on tape". Before the show got underway, Syren, Ariel and Sonya broke away from their warm-ups for a short interview with our ring announcer Kevin Kage. A nice chance for everyone to see and hear these three G.L.O.R.Y. fan favorites!
Match 2) Ariel vs. Sonya Blackhawk: These two G.L.O.R.Y. youngsters attended and competed in last year's convention (although not against each other). At the time, the girls formed a fast friendship and have discussed getting together as a tag-team...the "Teen Terrors". But just because they've discussed teaming-up doesn't mean that they still aren't competitive individually. We decided to pit these two rookies and G.L.O.R.Y. fan favorites against each other to see just who would come out on top. Sonya enters the ring first in her new red hot pants and mesh top gear...a nice new look compared to the long pants and tee-shirt from earlier in her career. But Ariel is just as attractive in her sparkling silver pants and belly-baring black top. These two start out putting on a good, technical match full of slams, arm drags and hip tosses. Somewhat surprisingly, their competitive nature comes to the surface as they bend the rules a bit and trade hard blows in the corner. But the girls quickly get back to some real wrestling and before long, Ariel and Sonya are testing each other's technical skills again. It's nip and tuck with a pin only moments away, but then all HELL breaks loose! The referee is laid-out. Both girls are left in a heap in the middle of the ring. The timekeeper bangs at the bell to no avail. The cameras stopped rolling as those in attendance tried to restore order. We're still sorting this one all out, but we'll get to the bottom of it...and we promise to do it by our next show.
Match 3) Syren vs. Macaela Mercedes for the G.L.O.R.Y. Title! Since winning the G.L.O.R.Y. Title from former champ Phoenix last January in Toronto, Macaela has incurred the wrath of many G.L.O.R.Y. fans by refusing to defend her position. While John The WebMaster has tried to get "The Bombshell" into the ring, she's come up with excuse after excuse for not having a title match. Exasperated, JTW finally agreed to a Mercedes proposal: she would defend if she could choose her opponent. After coming to ringside in her sexy, bright-red, two-piece outfit and wrestling the microphone away from ring announcer Kage, the champ tells the fans just what she thinks about them before announcing that she's decided to give a shot to a rookie: Syren. The pretty blonde Kentuckian comes to the ring with plenty of confidence and is hardly intimidated by Macaela. In fact, once the bell rings, Syren actually grabs the advantage...for a while. But once the tide turns, it turns big time. Poor Syren finds herself on the receiving end of one of the worst beatings we've ever seen. Syren's choice of a cute, short tee-shirt turns out to be a big mistake. Sure it looks great and shows-off the unique ivy tattoo which encircles her midsection...but it also leaves her belly exposed for a vicious attack from Macaela. After getting the upper-hand, the champ goes to work on Syren's stomach with shoulder blocks, knees, slaps, kicks and stomps. Syren's screams of agony fill the G.L.O.R.Y. Arena as she's racked in a tough abdominal stretch...made all the more agonizing as Macaela slaps and punches away at her unprotected belly. At one point, the G.L.O.R.Y. Champion sinks her fingers into Syren's abs and rakes her nails across her skin while screaming "I should rip that tattoo right off your belly, baby!" By the time this match is over, Syren's stomach is scorching red. We won't even try to make it seem like there is any question about the outcome here...Syren is simply destroyed as she wails in agony from the beating. In fact, Macaela yanks up Syren numerous times from certain pins as she seems more intent on punishing the rookie than just picking-up the win! In the end, Syren is left slumped on the mat after a Mercedes sleeperhold...a sleeperhold which she refuses to release until after the referee retrieves her G.L.O.R.Y. Championship trophy! You have to give it to Syren though: throughout this terrible beating, she never gave up and never submitted to the violent tactics employed by Mercedes. She'll have her share of victories before too long.
Match 4) Greg Spitz vs. Allison Danger: Intergender Challenge Match! Greg Spitz--a G.L.O.R.Y. fan and indy wrestling star from Pennsylvania who has also worked with Allison Danger--was a special guest of G.L.O.R.Y. on this day as he came in to watch and work with a few of the G.L.O.R.Y. Girls before the show. During an interview with ring announcer Kevin Kage, Spitz made the mistake of telling him that he was a big fan of Alicia. In fact, he admitted to coming to the site and voting everyday for Alicia in the G.L.O.R.Y. Girl contest. That brought Allison out to the ring. "What do you mean you vote for Alicia?!" she asks. "What about me?!!!" A somewhat embarrassing argument ensues and before long, a challenge is issued: Allison wants to take on the taller and heavier Spitz! He reluctantly agrees and the bell rings for this unscheduled battle. The match is surprisingly even. Although Spitz is obviously the stronger of the two, Allison makes up for the size difference with some of the dirtiest tactics we've ever seen a G.L.O.R.Y. Girl use! Spitz seems to not want to really go all out against his female opponent...but after an eye gouge, chokes, sharp chops in the corner and more than one low blow, he loses his temper and lays into Allison. The cheating G.L.O.R.Y. Girl takes some vicious fists to the face and almost has her head taken off by a stiff Spitz drop-kick. Danger goes after Spitz with every dirty tactic she can dredge up from her bag of tricks...Spitz works over Allison with his size and strength advantage. So who comes away with the win?
G.L.O.R.Y. Girls "Breakin' Out": The first of what we hope will be many shows that G.L.O.R.Y. Wrestling will be bringing fans. Your favorite girls. Great action. Shot with two digital cameras. Digitally edited to bring you the best view of what's happening in the ring. We think that this is a great start to what should be a big step forward for G.L.O.R.Y. Wrestling and the G.L.O.R.Y. Girls!
