October 14, 2004 (10:31am): The Wrestling Clothesline is proud to present the Second Annual Wrestling Clothesline's Top 50 Independent Women Wrestlers.
Due to the overwhelming success of last year's Wrestling Clothesline Top 50 Independent Women Wrestlers we have decided to do it again.
The Wrestling Clothesline, being an avid supporter of women indy wrestling, has decided to take the idea of ranking wrestlers in a slightly different direction.
Starting today, we encourage you to email WresClothesline@aol.com or post in the folder on our message board, your choices for best women wrestlers on the indy scene.
You may nominate as many women as you would like.
The voting will continue until November 10th.
At that point, from all the women who have been nominated, the Wrestling Clothesline Panel will narrow the list down to those we fell are the Top 50 Independent Women Wrestlers.
Narrowing down the list to 50 is not an easy task, that's why we need you to nominate any women you think should be ranked. Without you, there is a chance that your favorite wrestler may be overlooked. We're only human. There are many women we have not seen in action and without you letting us know about them, it would be impossible to take them into consideration.
When making our final decisions we will use the following guidelines:
The list will be a reflection of who we feel are the 50 best women wrestlers on the indy scene at the present time.
The list is reflective, but not limited too, a wrestlers previous 12 month body of work.
The women in the list should be active WRESTLERS and should wrestle on a regualr basis. Women who primarily manage or valet will not be included.
Wrestlers we have seen work will get a higher rank than those who we have not seen.
Injuries will be factored into the decision making process. Poor booking will not.
The final list will be comprised of those women nominated (by mail in and message board votes) followed by our panel narrowing it down to our selection of the top 50. The final rankings are just our opinions and are being done to help generate discussion and bring attention to women's wrestling.
So post your nominations or email them in between now and November 10th!
Thank you for your help in making this a success!!
