A warm welcome to you all! Here we go again, it’s Friday, it’s the Scavenger Hunt and it’s the third ever all women’s wrestling edition!
I am Simon Knowles, I can be found on Twitter as @HobosGhost and for over a year and a half I have compiled weekly random wrestling compilations for anyone top check out for free! Like I said this week is a women’s wrestling special so let’s begin!
14th September 2008
Falls Count Anywhere Match
Awesome Kong vs ODB
Kicking off with a trip back to 2008 as Awesome Kong meets her match as she takes on the crazy ODB in a falls count anywhere match!
ODB was with TNA for 10 years in two stints for the company. Currently working for ROH, ODB is still a firm favorite among fans for her whiskey drinking, brash persona. She was a four time TNA Knockouts Champion, a one time TNA Knockouts Tag Team Champion and a two time OVW Women’s Champion. ODB was the first OVW Women’s Champion after declaring herself the champ while carrying a title around until Danny Davis (then owner) conceded and made it a recognized title. ODB tried out for the first season of WWE Tough Enough and made it to the final 25 before being cut.
Awesome Kong is currently back in TNA having not appeared since 2010. A two time TNA Knockout Champion, Awesome Kong at this time was tearing through the Knockouts division as well as letting women fans (planted of course) take part in open challenges. Having busted Roxxi open on an episode of TNA Impact, the challenge was set at TNA No Surrender PPV for this match.
With Cheerleader Melissa as the covered up Raisha Saeed at ringside, this is simply a brawl.
10th September 2011
KC Spinelli vs Taya Valkyrie
ECCW in Canada now as KC Spinelli takes on Taya Valkyrie! Taya is the AAA Reina de Reinas Champion and is Canadian born but Mexico based. This match was quite early in her career and was a number one contenders match for the ECCW Women’s Championship. It would be 2012 when Taya debuted for AAA and has been with the company since.
KC Spinelli is a former ECCW and PWA Elite Women’s Champion and started wrestling in 2009. Both Canadians were trained by Lance Storm.
Fairly early match between two very talented Canadian stars!
17th January 2015
Pollyanna vs Nikki Storm
UK action up next as Wales born Pollyanna takes on Scotland born Nikki Storm one on one! Nikki Storm is rumoured to be on the verge of signing with WWE but that has yet to come true. The self proclaimed “Best in the Galaxy”, Nikki has been making regular appearances in USA for SHIMMER, SHINE and other promotions as well as in Europe and Japan. She was part of TNA’s British Boot Camp 2 TV series. The 26 year old has been wrestling since 2008 and recently appeared on Global Force’s UK tour losing to Mickie James.
Pollyanna is 27 years old and from Newport in Wales. Debuting in 2010, she has mostly wrestled in the UK and Ireland with the odd appearance elsewhere in Europe. Pollyanna and Toni Storm recently took on Elizabeth and Jinny in the main event for Progress Wrestling’s last show to rave reviews. It was the first time a women’s match had headlined the popular London based promotion who sell out every show quickly.
Both are two bright talents from the UK!
30th June 2012
Baroness vs Christina Von Eerie vs Leva Bates
A bizarre yet entertaining triple threat match which I included primarily because it was fun and partly because Leva Bates is rocking the Chun Li cosplay!
Leva Bates seems to be done playing the Blue Pants persona for WWE NXT at least for now. The cosplay gimmick is certainly unique for the Dudley Boys trained star. She is the current WSU Spirit Champion and teams with Mia Yim as the Lucha Sisters for SHINE.
Christina Von Eerie is the inaugural Global Force Women’s Champion and used to be in TNA for a time as well as appearing for Combat Zone among others.
Not really a match as such, Baroness has a really hard time in this one. Leva Bates does her take of the Chun Li kick and there’s even a Hadouken in there!

RCW Angels Division Championship Match
Cheerleader Melissa vs Angelina Love
Headlining this week’s Hunt is a battle between Cheerleader Melissa and TNA’s Angelina Love to crown the inaugural RCW Angels Champion!
RCW is based in San Antonio Texas. Cheerleader Melissa was the first triple crown winner at RCW having been the first female to hold the men’s RCW Championship, the Tag Championships and the International Championship. This match was her chance to go one step further and be the first Angels Champion. Melissa had a tryout for the WWE losing to Victoria on an episode of WWE Heat in May 2006 but wasn’t signed. She currently works for Stardom in Japan as a wrestler and books foreign talent for the company. She is set to appear on season 2 of Lucha Underground.
Angelina Love wasn’t with TNA at this point having left the company. The six time TNA Knockout Champion returned to TNA in 2014 to reform the Beautiful People and got married to fellow TNA star Davey Richards on 10th June 2015. They are expecting their first child together.
That concludes this week’s Scavenger Hunt special. I hope you liked what you saw and support wrestling in general whether male or female.
A new Hunt appears every Friday and all the previous ones are available here on TWC. Check out all the other content too!
From me it’s so long and hope to see you return!
