EVE Celebrate 1 Year Anniversary With 2 Announcements!

May 9, 2011   ·   0 Comments

This past Sunday marked the 1 year anniversary of Europe's only all female
wrestling promotion Pro-Wrestling:EVE.

Since the dbut show on May 8 2010 Pro-Wrestling:EVE has lead an uprising in the recognition of European female wrestlers. In under 12 months Pro-Wrestling:EVE had recorded 8 DVDs for release, expanded from our home base into new venues, opened doors for talent to appear in promotions that would otherwise not feature women's wrestling, helped talent get more international recognition and bookings, upgraded our set and filming equipment to some of the best around on the independent wrestling scene with TV quality cameras and dual video screens, announced new working agreements with promotions such as 1PW in the UK and Ice Ribbon in Japan, been home to some of the very best women's wrestling matches to take place anywhere in the world, crowned the first Pro-Wrestling:EVE champion in 'The Future' Britani Knight and so much more.

Recently Pro-Wrestling:EVE announced their next set of DVD recordings to be a part of a loaded weekend of wrestling working alongside the highest profile wrestling promotion in Europe - 1PW on the weekend of October 8 and 9 2011 at The Doncaster Dome.

The fortunate fans in attendance will not only be able to witness an amazing weekend of professional wrestling but also get to meet one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time in former WWE World Heavyweight Champion 'The Heartbreak Kid' Shawn Michaels.

What makes the weekend even more special is that for the very first time in history female stars from Japan will grace the UK as Japan's #1 Joshi Puroresu promotion Ice Ribbon journey to the UK to take on the Professionals of Pro-Wrestling:EVE in a series of EVE vs Ice Ribbon inter-promotional matches!

To celebrate Pro-Wrestling:EVE reaching our first anniversary we're pleased to announce that for a limited time only we're releasing a match from the Pro-Wrestling:EVE archive for FREE VIEWING on YouTube featuring one of the biggest stars to emerge from Pro-Wrestling:EVE in the form of Germany's Alpha Female facing the biggest challenge of her career in the EVE singles dbut of multiple promotion women's champion Destiny!


But if you think the only dose of Pro-Wrestling:EVE action you're going to get until October 8 and 9 is via DVD - then you're wrong!

Pro-Wrestling:EVE is pleased to announce a brand new working relationship with Morecambe, Lancaster based XWA - one of the highest profile wrestling promotions in the UK who are regularly featured in national British tabloid newspaper 'The Daily Star'.

Below is a press release with all the details courtesy of www.XWAwrestling.com

"Thanks to a brand new partnership between XWA Wrestling and Europe's only all-female wrestling promotion Pro-Wrestling:EVE, a women's title match between the two best female wrestlers currently competing on the continent has been added to XWA War on the Shore VII on Saturday June 4.

This match at The Carleton in Morecambe will be for the Pro-Wrestling:EVE Championship, and will have a true international flavour as it pits the champion Britani Knight from Norwich, England against the number one contender Jenny Sjodin from Sundsvall, Sweden.

At just 18 years of age, Britani Knight (pictured below with the Pro-Wrestling:EVE Title) is one of the hottest female prospects to ever come out of the United Kingdom. It was recently reported in the Wrestling Observer newsletter that Britani had a WWE try out last month and therefore is a potential future superstar on both sides of the Atlantic. As a member of the Knight wrestling dynasty; the daughter of Rowdy Ricky Knight and the Sweet Saraya, and sister of The Zebra Kid and Zak Zodiac, Britani certainly has wrestling in her blood. And by competing for the XWA, thus following in the footsteps of all four of her family members, she will become the fifth member of the Knight family to ever appear on a Greg Lambert-promoted event in Morecambe.

But she will face a tough challenge in Jenny Sjodin (pictured below), who has competed for XWA once before in 2010. Sjodin, 25, has a phenomenal fighting pedigree in Mixed Martial Arts and amateur mat wrestling, having won a gold medal in Ground Grappling and competed in the Grapplers' Quest tournament in New Jersey, USA, recognised by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). She is one of the most dangerous competitors in Pro-Wrestling:EVE and is feared for her lethal cross armbreaker submission.

Miss Knight and Miss Sjodin know each other extremely well, having shared victories against each other in the recent Pro-Wrestling:EVE two-day tournament which saw Britani crowned champion on April 9 2011 in Sudbury, Suffolk.

It is expected that XWA will recognise the winner of this match as its own women's champion.

Dann Read said: "I am delighted that Pro-Wrestling:EVE has joined with XWA Wrestling to bring the biggest, best and most important matchup in European women's wrestling today to the great fans of Morecambe.

"Both girls have one win against the other, Jenny having made Britani tap out, then Britani pinned Jenny in a rematch. Britani has skills and heart beyond her years, having won the title tournament after competing in five matches over two days, and while suffering with glandular fever. But she will be healthy for this title match and will need to be. Jenny is one of the biggest threats Britani could ever encounter, a submission specialist who is well-versed in many different styles of wrestling. "This partnership with XWA comes at a very important time for Pro-Wrestling:EVE as we prepare to welcome the wrestlers from Ice Ribbon to the UK in October, the first time a Japanese women's wrestling (Joshi) promotion will ever have visited Great Britain.

This prestigious and historic title match has been added to an already mouthwatering card for XWA War on the Shore VII at The Carleton in Morecambe on Saturday, June 4 2011. The card will be headlined by The Royal Battle which sees David Deville, the professional wrestler who by day works as a footman for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, put the FWA World and XWA British Heavyweight Titles on the line against number one contender 'The Heavyweight House of Pain' Stixx. For ticket details see www.xwawrestling.com or call 08444 771000. "

Additionally all DVDs and tickets for upcoming Pro-Wrestling:EVE events including the October 8/9 EVE vs Ice Ribbon series in Doncaster, England are available at www.EVEwrestling.com

Thank you for being a part of our first year and we look forward to providing you with many more years of some of the best and most important professional wrestling experiences in the world!
