Ah Zoe, is there room in AAA for an Agent 69 gimmick? :D




Sarah Taylor vs. Suzanne Brazzle

Tracy Brendon vs. Joanna Silver

I picture Cat screaming at a monitor in the back, "Learn Joanna! Learn how to wrestle for God's sake!"

Simony Sentinel & Christy Higgins vs. Ariel Breaks & a mystery partner

With my pick of partner, I could see Ariel pulling this out, but I guess this is a way to hedge my bets.


Main Card


Steffi Chee vs. Talia Quinzel - AAA Top Contender’s Title Match

I think Talia is right where she should be for now, while Chee is there to make the younger talent look good.

Devil’s Daughter vs. Jessica Bunny

Very interesting. DD getting a partner to enter the tag team scene?

Laura Flame vs. Jaime Quine

Flame keeps learning, and Jaime gets a win.

Steph Blake vs. Sara Marie York - AAA Femme Fatale Title Match - If York Loses, She Must Leave AAA

I actually liked being surprised by York being the other wrestler to leave. I let out an actual "Awww" when that was revealed. :) That being said, Steph looks like as good a candidate as any to be a transitional champ while you sort out the new main event scene.


Bonus Question 1: Who is Ariel Breaks’ mystery partner? Hint: She has never been employed by USPW, NOTBPW, CILL, OLLIE, QAW, or 5SSW.

Wow. I was going to say Melody, but can't be her, so, um, Deborah Young?


Bonus Question 2: The highest rated match of the evening will be Blake vs. York. Which match is the second-highest rated? I'll go out on a bit of a limb and say Quine and Flame.


Bonus Question 3: What will the final show rating be? Hmmm, last show in the North West did a 60, so I'll go 62, which I think is a C.


Tiebreaker: The venue capacity is 3,000. The show is not a sell out. What is the attendance for this show? Let's go 2,950 (falling economy and industry?)

There’s going to be a lot of pressure on you from here on in. If we hit a rough patch now that Joanne and Sara are gone, people are going to say you’re not a draw. They’re going to say you got your slot because you’re Cat’s sister - “</p><p> </p><p> “Step-sister.”</p><p> </p><p> Cherry sighed. “Because you’re family. Whether we sink or swim, people are going to say that you got what you’re about to get not because you earned it, but because you were gifted it.”</p><p> </p><p> Jaime finished her water bottle. “Let ‘em say what they say. I know the truth. I am ready. Cherry - I’ve been ready. You talk about people thinking I got my spot because of Cat. If I was anyone else, I’d already be main event. Three times Cat put the Top Contender’s belt on me, but never the Femme Fatale belt. Why? Because she was scared people would say she only put it on me because we’re step-sisters. Cat didn’t want to have to deal with the gossip if she elevated me, so she leaned on Sara and Joanne and Suzanne so she always had a ready excuse why I wasn’t part of the main event. But now Sara and Joanne are gone, and Suzanne’s winding down her career, and there’s no more excuses. I haven’t complained, but I was ready for this over a year ago, Cherry. I’ve been waiting on the starting blocks, waiting for Cat to finally pull the trigger.”</p></div></blockquote><p> </p><p> We had a trio of preliminary matches for you Angels who arrived early.</p><p> </p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/p39q1H6.jpg</span> <strong>vs.</strong> <span>http://i.imgur.com/cCSn7Mv.jpg</span></p><p> Suzanne Brazzle took on Sarah Taylor in a match of a ring veteran versus one of AAA’s newest competitors.

I’m always trying to learn from people who’ve been in the business longer than I have. Which is just about everyone...” she said, trailing off.</p><p> </p><p> Galaxy smiled. “Ariel, technically, I was the rookie in the ring tonight. You’ve been in more matches in AAA than I have. So you tell me who the rookie is.”</p><p> </p><p> “Amy, can I talk to you a minute?” Amy turned around to see Cat Quine beckoning her into an office. </p><p> </p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/kEkUwNO.jpg</span></p><p> Amy followed Cat. “Close the door, please?” Amy did as asked.</p><p> </p><p> “Is there a problem, Cat?”</p><p> </p><p> “There was a problem. And maybe it can’t be fixed.” Cat rubbed the bridge of her nose. “I guess you heard about Anne’s BSC blacklist?”</p><p> </p><p> Amy nodded. “Yeah. The BSC originals heard about it a few months after our first show. Didn’t think much of it at the time. The whole wrestling thing, none of us took it seriously. It was just a different kind of show for us showgirls. Then we thought it wouldn’t matter because we were really building something. Funny thing is, a bunch of us started to actually love being wrestlers instead of showgirls or strippers. Which made it that much harder when BSC collapsed around us and we were blacklisted from the only company that would have been interested in us, because USPW probably didn’t even know we existed.”</p><p> </p><p> “So you’ve been working independent shows to get that fix,” Cat said. “I get it. The hardest part of my career was ending my in-ring days just to sit outside of the ring and just watch other people doing what my body wasn’t letting me do anymore. Amy, no one your age works indie wrestling shows because they have to do so. Pretty much anything is an easier way to make money. I could tell you kept going because you loved being a wrestler.”</p><p> </p><p> Amy looked away. “I do. Unfortunately, I finally get to wrestle for AAA right as my body has started breaking down,” she said, bitterly.</p><p> </p><p> “Amy, I want to apologize,” Cat said. “Not just on behalf of the company. Not just apologize for Anne’s decisions. I want to apologize for not standing up to Anne. For waiting until she was gone to lift the blacklist. I’m sorry that it took this long to happen.”</p><p> </p><p> Amy sighed. “Yeah, me too. When you called, offering me a one-time deal? Honestly? I wanted to tell you to shove it. You wait all this time, until I have creaky knees and hips that let me know daily what I’ve put them through, and only then you call me? I wanted to say, screw you.” Cat nodded, but said nothing. “But I didn’t. Because I didn’t want to look back and feel like for all of that time and energy and heartbreak and ongoing pain, that I couldn’t say I was a real wrestler. Not a ‘wrestler’ with quote marks around it, which is how people still think of us BSC girls. Not some has-been, or honestly, never-was, wrestling in front of 35 people in VFW hall. A real wrestler, in a promotion people talk about as something other than the punchline of a joke.”</p><p> </p><p> Cat waited to make sure Amy had said her piece. “You still want to tell me to shove it? Because you absolutely still can,” she said with a grin.</p><p> </p><p> “Maybe. Only as long as I still get paid afterwards.” The women laughed, together.</p></div></blockquote><p> </p><p> The main show started with AAA’s general manager, Cat Jemson, addressing the audience <em>(Angle ratings - 59, 55)</em>.</p><p> </p><p> </p><blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="42833" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"><div><em>In the ring at AAA Save the Last Dance</em><p> </p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/2grrL5B.jpg</span></p><p> The boos were coming hard and fast. The audience members not booing were chanting, “You screwed J-Ro! You screwed J-Ro!” Cat Jemson took it all in with a beauty pageant smile on her face.</p><p> </p><p> “That’s where you’re all wrong. I didn’t screw J-Ro. J-Ro screwed J-Ro, because she thought she could screw around with me.” The crowd’s torrential boos suggests they’re not buying Jemson’s interpretation of events. “Thanks to Steph Blake, I just sent a message to the entire locker room, and the message is this: I am the boss here, and there’s only one way, and that’s my way. And if you don’t like my way, well, there’s the highway - you can get right on out of my company!”</p><p> </p><p> Cat Quine can’t keep quiet. “Her company. She’s the general manager, not dictator!”</p><p> </p><p> Jemson smiles serenely. “Now that Joanne Rodriguez is good and gone, that’s half of the problem solved. But I don’t believe in doing things halfway. Nuh-uh! So, Sara Marie York, get yourself on out here. We have some business to discuss.” The crowd waits to see if AAA Femme Fatale champion Sara Marie York heeds Jemson’s command. Finally, York’s music hits, to rapturous cheers. </p><p> </p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/4WuhyP5.jpg</span></p><p> York comes out with the Femme Fatale belt over the shoulder and a cold, quiet fury on her face. “Sara, our champion, so good of you to get off your rear and join us. Come on, get in this ring.”</p><p> </p><p> “Jemson had better be careful taunting Sara like that,” observes Cat Quine. “Sara might be a fair and honorable person, but it would be fair to smack that grin right off our general manager’s smug little face in my opinion. And Sara might just do that.”</p><p> </p><p> “Sara, glad you could make it,” says Jemson. “I wanted you to hear this direct from me.” Sara says nothing, staring Jemson down. “Now that you don’t have your henchwoman around any more, I think we can feel more assured you’ll play fair in your match tonight against Steph Blake. I figure, having retired Joanne Rodriguez, she’s earned herself a Number #1 Contendership. So tonight, you’ll face Steph Blake with the AAA Femme Fatale Championship on the line!” The crowd boos at the blatant favoritism shown by Jemson. “Oh, but that’s not the only thing on the line tonight. Oh no, no, no. Because if you don’t beat Steph Blake tonight, you won’t just lose that belt - you’ll lose your job! You’re out! Gone!” The crowd seems on the verge of throwing garbage into the ring to let Jemson know how they feel about that stipulation. Jemson smiles her beauty pageant smile once again - at least until York takes a lunging step toward her. Jemson flinches so hard she falls straight down on her rear. The crowd laughs at Jemson getting punked out that hard. York picks up the microphone Jemson dropped in her panic.</p><p> </p><p> “You got it, boss,” she says. “As the champion of this company, I will proudly defend this championship, no matter the circumstances, no matter the odds. You stack the deck against me? Go ahead. Steph Blake better have brought a tank, because that’s the only way she’s going to take this belt away from me!” York disdainfully tosses the mic down at Jemson before she heads backstage to prepare.</p></div></blockquote><p> </p><p> The next match featured Steffi Chee, who put up quite a bit of trouble against Cherry Bomb last week, against Talia Quinzel with the AAA Top Contender’s championship on the line.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>AAA Top Contender's Championship Match</strong></p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/ETEkY6f.jpg</span></p><p> </p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/yitWntj.jpg</span> <em>(challenger)</em> <strong>vs.</strong> <span>http://i.imgur.com/dcnOexP.jpg</span> <em>(champion)</em></p><p> The physical wear and tear on Chee showed, and Quinzel had no compunctions in taking advantage of the worn-down challenger. Quinzel hit her full nelson backbreaker, the <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4JjalXeA4w" rel="external nofollow">Spinal Trauma</a>, but didn’t go for the pin. Instead, she picked Chee up off the mat in a full nelson hold, and hit another Spinal Trauma. After pulling Chee up one more time and delivering a third Spinal Trauma, the referee called the match in favor of Quinzel.</p><p> </p><p> <em>(In a poor match, Talia Quinzel defeated Steffi Chee in 9:32 when Talia Quinzel beat up Steffi Chee so badly that the referee had to stop the match.

I’m Cat Quine, and I’m here to talk to Tracy Brendon and Suzanne Brazzle, who have not been getting along as of late. Ladies, your issues have resulted in a one-on-one match at our show next week, Not Just a Pretty Face, which will take place in the Reed Gym on the Idaho State University campus in Pocatello. But before you two meet, maybe we can talk more about how we got to this point?”</p><p> </p><p> Brendon doesn’t hesistate to tell her side of things. “It’s pretty simple, really. I don’t like Suzanne. I don’t like the way she walks around backstage with her nose in the air, like she’s better than the rest of us. She might think that she is, but she’s not! You won the Femme Fatale championship in 2009. So what? That was 7 years ago, Suzanne, and what have you done since? Nothing! But still you go around, coasting on a reputation that might have been deserved 7 years ago, but you’re not that woman any more. But these people,” she says, indicating the crowd, “they don’t know that. They think you still have what it takes. But next week, at Not Just a Pretty Face? I’m going to prove it to all of them, and to you.”</p><p> </p><p> “Harsh words, Tracy. Your response, Suzanne?”</p><p> </p><p> Brazzle composes herself before she speaks. “I can’t deny the facts of what you’ve said. It is true that I won the Femme Fatale championship 7 years ago. What you left out was that I held that title for 11 months. It’s true I haven’t had gold since then. I’m not going to make excuses or blame anyone else - I’ve had my shots, and I’ve come close, but never close enough. But you go and ask any of my opponents that have beaten me, and they’ll tell you, I was no pushover! Which you’re going to find out next week. But let’s talk about you for a second. How many Femme Fatale championships have *you* won?” Brendon’s eyes flash madness and rage, but she says nothing. “Exactly. Zero. None. You want to call me a has-been? It isn’t true, but even if it was, at least I have been the champion of this company! Which I suppose makes you a never-was, doesn’t it?”</p><p> </p><p> Brendon’s face is getting bright red with anger. “I’ve had five championships in this company! I’m ALREADY in the AAA Hall of Fame! I’ve accomplished more than you ever have!”</p><p> </p><p> “Oh, yes, five-time champion. Let’s see - of those five championships, one was as the Top Contender champion and four were as tag team champion. Four times, you needed your sister to accomplish anything. You’re in the AAA Hall of Fame, sure - inducted alongside your sister as half of a tag team. What have you done without your sister, Tracy? Not a whole lot. Maybe that’s because your sister carried you through your entire career?” While speaking, Brazzle has slowly inched in closer to Cat, and to Tracy.</p><p> </p><p> “Is that what you think?!?” Tracy shouts, stepping in now so that the women are almost nose to nose. “Is that what you think?” Tracy asks the audience, many of whom audibly answer “yes”. “That’s not what happened! We were even partners, until Michelle got old and then *I* had to start carrying *her* around! And I was a good sister, and I did it, and what did it get me? Nothing! One run as Top Contender, because I was too busy carrying my old, broken-down sister, wasting the prime of my career, instead of becoming Femme Fatale champion like I deserve!”</p><p> </p><p> “Like you deserve? You don’t deserve anything!” Suzanne replies. “You have to earn that opportunity, and you. Haven’t. Earned it. Maybe if you can beat me clean in the ring, 1-2-3, you might earn it. But you’re not going to win next Tuesday, and you’re going to have to look in the mirror and stop blaming your sister, stop blaming me, and admit the problem isn’t in us, it’s in you.”</p><p> </p><p> Brendon seems stunned, and takes a step back. She looks straight at the ground. When she speaks, it’s in a low, hushed tone. “You know, Suzanne? Why even wait that long?” Brendon drops the mic and clocks Brazzle in the jaw with a sucker punch. Immediately, the two women go at it, fists and feet flying, to the delight of the crowd.

So you will listen and listen well when I tell you that I’m going to defeat Sara Marie York tonight. Listen to me when I tell you that I am going to take possession of the Femme Fatale belt, an honor that is rightfully mine.

But everyone in this building - me, all of you, and most of all Cherry Bomb - everyone knows that I had Cherry Bomb defeated when Devil’s Daughter decided to interfere in the match. It seems like Cherry Bomb, for all of her boasting and all of her big talk about how she was going to show me that I wasn’t at her level, decided she wanted an insurance policy. Turns out she needed one, too. So, Cherry, as far as I’m concerned? I beat you. So I’m not going to ask you for another match. I proved my point. No, what I want is a little bit of payback against Devil’s Daughter. So DD, you listening? You, me, one-on-one next week at Not Just A Pretty Face.

It’s time for Devil’s Daughter to even out that score.”</p><p> </p><p> “Oh, right, sorry Cherry, I’m sorry,” sweats Cat Jemson. “Then, as general manager of AAA, I am officially confirming Jaime Quine *will* take on Devil’s Daughter at Not Just a Pretty Face.” Jemson looks expectantly at the women looming over her. “That’s what you wanted, right? Right? We’re good, right?”</p><p> </p><p> Cherry finally leans out of Jemson’s face. “That is what I wanted. We’re good. For now.”</p><p> </p><p> “Have a nice spa treatment,” Devil’s Daughter hisses, before leaving Jemson’s office along with Cherry Bomb.</p></div></blockquote><p> </p><p> The stage was then set for Sara Marie York to defend her AAA Femme Fatale title - and her career - against Steph Blake.

Sara! Sara!” the audience chanted. York smiles her million-dollar smile that had been featured on so many posters over the last 13 years. “You all are too good to me,” she says. “13 years ago, I came into this company hoping I could make a career out of pro wrestling. I didn’t care about t-shirts, or championships, or anything besides doing what I love in front of the most devoted fans in this entire industry. Soon, though, I learned what I loved wasn’t competing as much as it was competing for you all. You all inspired me and supported me when I won my very first Top Contender’s championship belt - my first championship of any kind - 10 years ago. When I lost it, I was heartbroken. I felt like I had let all of you down. But when I came out the show after I lost that belt, you all cheered me even harder. You wanted to let me know how proud you were of me, belt or no belt. And that’s when I knew that I wasn’t competing in this ring alone. That’s when I knew that everyone who comes to see me, who sends me e-mails and tweets, who comes to see me after the show and asks me for my autograph - win or lose - you all are in the ring with me. Carrying me, lifting me. You lifted me when I defeated the legendary Suzue Katayama for my first Femme Fatale title. You lifted me every time I stepped foot in this ring. And I want to thank each and every one of you, each and every one of our fans elsewhere who couldn’t be here tonight, for everything you’ve done for me. There is no Sara Marie York with you. Thank you.”</p></div></blockquote><p> </p><p> Following a music video showing highlights from York’s AAA career <em>(Angle rating - 47)</em>, Steph Blake came to the ring admist a cresendo of booing, and the match begun.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>AAA Femme Fatale Championship Match</strong></p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/mkLIQNG.jpg</span></p><p> </p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/2m3v59w.jpg</span> <em>(challenger)</em> <strong>vs.</strong> <span>http://i.imgur.com/4WuhyP5.jpg</span> <em>(champion)</em></p><p> As she had against Joanne Rodriguez, Steph Blake came with her A-game, taking an aggressive approach that put York on the defensive in the early parts of the match. Several times Blake came close to getting in one of her trademark DDTs, but York had Blake scouted well and was able to reverse the attempts. Having frustrated Blake’s attempts to end the match early, York fought back, looking to ground Blake long enough to score her Shining Wizard, the Energy Burst. But as York had scouted Blake, Blake had scouted York, and whenever Blake found herself grounded she made sure she rolled a bit before standing, lest she give York the perfect opening. Around the 18-minute mark, York hit a snapmare takedown on Blake, and hurried to the opposite ropes to build up momentum for the Energy Burst. But Blake was playing possum and caught York in midair, leading to a hellacious </p><div class="ipsEmbeddedVideo"><div><iframe width="200" height="113" src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/1QW6iUIt56U?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" title="Fisherman's Buster"></iframe></div></div>. The ref’s hand came down one...two...and at the very last second, a kickout!<p> </p><p> Blake was livid, not believing that wasn’t enough to keep the champ down. Blake went for two more covers, getting only a two count each time. Frustrated, Blake locked in a Boston crab, hoping York would tap in her weakened state. York refused to quit, and had nearly reached the ropes when Blake managed to pull her back toward the center of the ring. Feeding off the crowd, York pulled Blake toward the ropes again, finally forcing Blake to release the hold. Blake, wondering what she needed to do to keep York down, threw her into a corner and set her up on the top turnbuckle. Blake then locked in a headlock and pulled York so that she was horizontal to the mat. The crowd quieted as they nervously awaited a top-rope version of the rope-hang DDT...which didn’t happen, as York pummeled Blake about the head, forcing her to release the headlock, and letting York do a handstand into a standing position.</p><p> </p><p> The crowd cheered the display of atheticism, and cheered even harder when York dodged a wild clothesline from Blake, reversing it into a neckbreaker. York, working with a second wind, bounced off the ropes and hit Blake - who was slow to get up - with an Energy Burst that had enough force to be heard in the last row of the building. York went for the pin, and the ref’s hand counted one...two...and the ref stopped as his hand was coming down for the three as Zoe Ammis jumped up on the ring apron.</p><p> </p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/RkMOrtI.jpg</span></p><p> With the referee’s attention on Ammis, York came over and nailed Ammis with a right hand that sent her tumbling to the canvas. Steph Blake used the opening to throw York over the top rope and to the outside. Blake slid out of the ring, where she met York, and the two traded blows. Ammis crawled away as champion and challenger fought above her. York finally got the better of the exchange and Irish whipped Blake into the ring stairs. York rolled into the ring as the referee started his ten count. The ref stopped his count as Blake signaled to him, clutching her knee and wincing in pain. The ref slid out of the ring to see if she could continue...leaving York wide open to Ammis sneaking up from behind and hitting the </p><div class="ipsEmbeddedVideo"><div><iframe width="200" height="113" src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/Q4oSCvV7nJQ?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" title="Primo ● Backstabber"></iframe></div></div>, Ammis’ version of the Backstabber. Blake, seeing Ammis has done her dirty work, suddenly isn’t having a knee problem at all. She climbs onto the ring apron, and as York gets up from the Double Cross, Blake hits her Slingshot DDT. The referee, none the wiser on Ammis’ interference, slides back into the ring and counts 1...2...and 3. <p> </p><p> <em>(In a decent match, Steph Blake defeated Sara Marie York in 34:17 by pinfall with a Slingshot DDT. During the match we also had Zoe Ammis run in and attack York. Steph Blake wins the AAA Femme Fatale title.

Despite the referee’s protests, she hands Blake the belt and lift’s Blake’s arm in victory. The crowd boos their new champion. York gets to her feet, and Blake and Ammis pause in their celebration. Dejected, but honorable to the end, York offers her hand to Blake in a show of respect. Blake comes over to York...and laughs in her face, leaving the ring with Ammis in tow. York shakes her head, but looks up at the fans and smiles as they cheer her one last time <em>(Angle ratings 42, 45)</em>.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>**********</strong></p><p> </p><p> What will happen now that AAA has lost both Joanne Rodriguez and Sara Marie York? What will the Steph Blake era entail - especially as she has the full backing of AAA general manager Cat Jemson?

<p>Story Interlude - Down on the Farm</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Stardust Ranch</strong></p><p><strong>

Asotin, Washington</strong></p><p><strong>

March 30, 2016</strong></p><p> </p><p>


Anne Stardust, the wrinkles in her face accentuating her frown as if they were an extension to the sour look that had become her default expression, stared Catherine Quine straight in the eye. “Cathy, you hired a stripper.”</p><p> </p><p>


This was not the way Cat Quine had wanted this visit to go. <em>Then again</em>, Cat mused, <em>it’s not like I shouldn’t have expected it to go this way.</em> Anne was a genius, and one of the hardest driven women in the business. She was also petty, wouldn’t sell for anyone, manipulated a lot of girls into working for pennies when they deserved more, and had a very clear idea of what “her” promotion should and should not be. When she decided to sell AAA and retire to her farm way out in the foothills of the Blue Mountains in <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asotin,_Washington" rel="external nofollow">Asotin</a>, it was preceded by months of telling Cat exactly how things worked, how things should work, and the “right” way to do business. Cat had listened—of course she listened, Anne took women’s professional wrestling from being either a joke or borderline porn into a business that had survived for 20 years—but at the same time, Cat knew she would have to put her own spin on the product. Cat had to do so; she wasn’t Anne, she never could be Anne, and as she looked out on the yellowed prairie that strived for but never reached the tops of distant mountains, the landscape dotted with rare, occasional pines, she was glad she wasn’t Anne. She’d lose her mind in a place like this. Anne seemed to fit in, as if she had grown there, like some kind of thorny prairie scrub bush.</p><p> </p><p>

“How do you even know what I’ve done? Do you even have a computer out here? Do they know what those are around here?”</p><p> </p><p>

Anne spat, and kicked some dirt off her boots against the post of a barbed wire fence. Several sheep flocked over to Anne, gazing up at her expectantly. Cat wondered if that’s how she looked when she first met Anne twenty years ago, when she was an 18 year old with a rebellious streak and what her parents thought was a ridiculous dream. “It’s satellite internet. Not great but good enough. And it’s not like I moved out here to spend all my damn time looking at a computer screen.” Cat wondered if Anne owned a smart phone, but decided against asking. “What, you thought I wouldn’t be keeping an eye on my baby, to see if the minute I handed it over to you if you were going to paint it up and pimp it out on the corner?” Anne turned and looked at Cat, the same look of deep disappointment she used to keep “her girls” in line for nearly two decades.</p><p> </p><p>


<em>That look might have worked on me two decades ago, Anne, but I’m not some naïve kid with a stupid dream and only one place I could make that dream come true.</em> “Yes, Janine Lebowitz, aka Joanna Silver, has worked as a dancer for parts of the three years in which she could legally do so, Anne.” Cat felt blood rushing to her face, surprised to realize the anger that was welling up inside her. “She’s a 21-year-old girl who has been trying to make a living in a job that doesn’t care if you have to travel to other side of the country with little notice. She loves this business, Anne. She loves it enough that she deals with drunken, grabby jerkoffs so that she can have a tiny apartment, a cell phone, a beaten-up car with too many miles on it, and a dream.” <em>I'm just glad she doesn't seem to realize Amy Galaxy worked for BSC.</em></p><p> </p><p>

Anne cracked what might have been a smile, if one looked close. “You’re defending your girls. That’s good. That’s what you have to do. It doesn’t matter what you call them in that locker room, it doesn’t matter what hell you give them during training, it doesn’t matter how brutal the things are that you ask them to do in the ring. That’s family stuff. But when someone outside the family says something about one of your girls, you tear that person a new one - unless they’re dead to rights, and then you cut bait.” Cat felt the tension go out of her body. Anne was testing her. Yet again, like she had for two decades. And just like always, I didn’t even see Anne’s manipulation until she had already gotten what she wanted. “She’s cold turds in the ring, though, you gotta admit that.” Anne was smiling, but she wasn’t joking.</p><p> </p><p>

Cat sighed, loudly. It was true. “You’re not wrong, she’s really lacking in the ring. She’s not able to relocate closer, which means the only lessons she’s getting from us are once or twice a month. And in terms of her initial training? If I was Joanna, I’d demand a refund. Sounds like one of those fly-by-night places where some washed-up never-was who jobbed on an episode SWF television back in 2002 sells people a dream, takes their money, shows them a hold or two and then calls them ‘a wrestler’ after six weeks.”</p><p> </p><p>

Anne nodded. “So, why did you hire her?”</p><p> </p><p>

Cat pursed her lips. “Because she connects with people. Because not far below her goofy poofy-shirt-and-corset is the heart of a mark that loves this business, and people see that in her. They see how much fun she’s having, how exhilarated she is to just be there, and they feel exhilarated too. They love her, because she genuinely loves them. And she makes them laugh. Maybe she’s not cut out for full-time ring work, but she’s got the makings of a fantastic manager.”</p><p> </p><p>

Anne ambled over to a watering trough and turned the spigot handle. The sheep followed and lapped at the fresh water. “Fair enough. But that doesn’t get people in the door in the first place. Stars sell tickets, Cathy.” Anne shut off the spigot with a metallic squeal. “And you just lost your two main event babyfaces."</p><p> </p><p>


Ones I had managed to keep in AAA. You lost them within three months. What does that say?”</p><p> </p><p>

The heat rose back into Cat’s face. “What it means, Anne,” she said with a sharp edge to her words, “is that Lora Washington’s back got sent straight to hell and the suits in Atlanta decided to replace her with the most popular women’s wrestler in America who hadn’t worked for them already. And then Joanne decided that she wanted to bring her friend in on the biggest payday either of them have ever seen in their career. We do what we always do when we lose stars - we make new ones. And don’t play like you didn’t have your stars grabbed up. Cherry came back, but she could only 'come back' because you lost her to USPW in the first place.” Anne’s face was impossible to read. She merely shrugged and headed over to the rocking chair on her front porch. There was no second seat, so Cat had to sit on the top stair. Cat couldn’t help but wonder if the front porch seating arrangement was not an accident.</p><p> </p><p>

After looking off into the distance for a bit, Anne broke the silence. “You never did leave.”</p><p> </p><p>

Cat laughed, a chuckle seasoned with a bit of unexpected bitterness. “Maybe I should have left, Anne. I’d have a lot more money, instead of having sunk nearly every cent I had into AAA. Maybe I should have jumped ship when I got married, joined North of the Border so I could see my husband with some kind of regularity.” Anne didn’t react, and a silence fell over them again. This time it was Cat’s turn to break the silence “You could have come to one of the shows, Anne. Pullman’s not that far, neither is Moscow.”</p><p> </p><p>

Anne shook her head. “That’s not the point, Cathy.”</p><p> </p><p>

“Then what is the point, Anne?”</p><p> </p><p>

“The <em>point</em>, Cathy,” Anne said, stretching out the word “point” like taffy, “is that AAA is your company now. If I sell and retire from the business, and then I show right back up less than three months after you take over, then we’re right back to AAA being my company again.” Cat nodded, looking at the older woman who had just been criticizing her for the way Cat was handling her business. Cat wondered if Anne felt even a hint of cognitive dissonance. “Besides, Cathy, I’m done with the business. Totally and completely. I gave my entire life to the business and now I’m ready to have my life to my own self.” Anne then stopped rocking and looked Cat right in the eye. “Sure, I’m keeping tabs on my baby from a distance. But I have to let go and realize that my baby’s all grown up, and she’s got to make her own decisions and learn from her own mistakes - no matter how avoidable they were. But in the end, all parents want the best for their children, and even hope their children surpass them.”</p><p> </p><p>

Cat nodded. It was the closest thing to actual praise Anne was capable of, and Cat appreciated the sentiment for what it was. Anne sat back into her chair and started rocking again, her eyes once again drifting to the mountains out on the horizon. The women sat in silence until it was time to eat.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>OOC:</strong> That concludes the first three in-game months for this diary. I'll be doing a post (or two) that summarizes where AAA is now, compared to when we started. I'll be linking to the three-month summary post(s) in the very first post, so hopefully people who want to Join the Revolution can come in without having read up to that point. Of course, it's certainly okay with me if someone wanted to read the whole thing <img alt=":D" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/biggrin.png.929299b4c121f473b0026f3d6e74d189.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></p><p> </p><p>

Any ideas? Comments? Things you want more of? Less of? Ways to make the diary more enjoyable? Ideas for the future of AAA? Let me know - and most of all, thank you for reading! I hope you've enjoyed reading as much as I have enjoyed writing.</p>

<p>I like that Anne feels like a very realistic foil, she's set in her ways, and I'm sure many of us would have issues with a lot of her views, but she's not cartoonish. </p><p> </p><p>

I don't feel I have any creative input that would make your diary <em>better. </em> Keep doing what you're doing, I'm enjoying the heck out of it. </p><p> </p><p>

Alright, I'll offer up one thing MrWolf101 does occasionally that could be interesting: A look at what's going on elsewhere in your C-verse, especially as it relates to women's wrestling and AAA. Who's hired, who's fired, who wears the titles in other companies, and other stories that might have popped up.</p>

Are the forums undergoing a women's diary revolution? Lol, I have been tinkering around with the idea of attempting a women's diary after being inspired by MrWolf101 and then I log in to come and read this. I'm no longer inspired. I'm now completely afraid and hiding in the corner lol. Great read and between this diary and MrWolf101's I'm spoiled rotten. <img alt=":D" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/biggrin.png.929299b4c121f473b0026f3d6e74d189.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" />

<p>An Introduction to the Angel Athletic Association - Who We Are</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/mqxRUMt.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><span style="font-size:12px;"><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">What is the Angel Athletic Association?</span></strong></span></p></div><p></p><p> </p><p>

The Angel Athletic Association, known informally as AAA, but never Triple A (legal issues), is an all-women’s wrestling promotion headquartered in Tacoma, Washington, in the Northwestern United States. AAA was founded in February 1996 by Anne Stardust, a legend in women’s wrestling, because of the lack of opportunities for women in the American wrestling industry at that time. Contrary to naysayers who said there was no market for an all-women’s wrestling company, AAA has established a strong following in the Northwestern United States. In late 2015, Anne Stardust sold AAA to Catherine “Cat” Quine. Cat Quine was part of AAA’s initial roster in 1996 and held AAA’s highest honor, the AAA Femme Fatale Championship, on three occasions. In addition, Cat Quine was the head trainer of the Cat’s Lair, a wrestling school dedicated to training the next generation of female talent. Following her retirement from in-ring work in 2010, Cat Quine became the color commentator for AAA, a position she still holds.</p><p> </p><p>

AAA's regular schedule is 24 shows a year, 2 per month. 1 show is always in the Northwest United States, while the second show every other month takes place in another region of the US. In terms of style, AAA believes in a clear-cut delineation of faces and heels. AAA is intended to be enjoyed by people of all ages, and thus does not feature risque content. AAA is focused on the fundamental and traditional methods of telling stories in and out of the ring. As such, workrate is less important than emotionally connecting with our fans and getting them invested in the stories we tell. For the long-term health and safety of our workers, AAA de-emphasizes dangerous spots and maneuvers.</p><p> </p><p>

The Angel Athletic Association recognizes the greatest competitors that have done battle in an AAA ring.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Inductees</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong>Anne Stardust</strong></p><p>


Anne Stardust founded the Angel Athletic Association, was its first champion, and held the AAA Femme Fatale Championship a record five times in her trailblazing career.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong>Wanda Fish</strong></p><p>


Before achieving national fame in USPW as "Belle Bryden", Wanda "The Dish" Fish was a five-time AAA Femme Fatale Champion, an honor she shares with fellow Hall of Fame inductee Anne Stardust.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong>Grace Harper</strong></p><p>


Originally "Helen Wheels", Grace Harper was a mainstay of the AAA main event scene for over 15 years. In that time, Harper was a three-time AAA Femme Fatale champion.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong>Farrah Hesketh</strong></p><p>


A Day 1 roster member of AAA, Farrah Hesketh captured 3 AAA Femme Fatale championships, and would have likely captured more if her career hadn't been cut short by injury. Hesketh has taken the lessons from her time in AAA and opened the second all-women's federation in the United States, the Queens of American Wrestling.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong>Catherine Quine</strong></p><p>


Owner, booker, color commentator, head trainer, and a Day 1 roster member - "Cat" Quine has pretty much done it all in her AAA career, picking up three AAA Femme Fatale titles along the way.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong>The Brendon Sisters</strong></p><p>


Four-time AAA Tag Team Champions, the Brendon Sisters - Tracy and Michelle - came roaring out of Idaho to show the world there's no tighter bond between teammates than that of sisterhood.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong>Wild Times</strong></p><p>


The first four-time AAA Tag Team Champions, Vixxen and Devil's Daughter lived up to their name as they carved a name for themselves in the tag team division. Though Vixxen has retired, Devil's Daughter carries on, ensuring the times remain very wild.</p>

<strong>Steph Blake</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Egomaniac</p><p>

Titles Held: AAA Femme Fatale (current; x1), AAA Tag Team (x1), AAA Top Contender (x1)</p><p>

Tag Team Partner of Zoe Ammis (Blake & Ammis)</p><p>

Biography: Steph Blake calls herself “England’s Finest Export”, and as she holds the AAA Femme Fatale title, she may have a point. Of course, Blake was making these claims to superiority - over her fellow wrestlers and audiences - long, long before she had a title to back it up. With Zoe Ammis watching her back - and stabbing others in theirs when they’re not looking - Blake might have an opportunity to prove that she’s doing more than just boasting.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/Dw8k489.jpg</span><p>

<strong>Cherry Bomb</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Bad Ass</p><p>

Titles Held: AAA Tag Team (x2, with Helen Earth and with Gorgon), AAA Top Contender (x1), USPW Women’s Championship (x1)</p><p>

Biography: Proving age is only a number, Cherry Bomb may be more dangerous now than she was during her first run with AAA. She has left a trail of devastation in her wake, and claims that no one can withstand one of her explosions - with their chants of “Cherry’s gonna kill you,” the Angels in the audience certainly seem to agree! Cherry has been warring with Jaime Quine as of late, feeling the younger woman hasn’t shown her the proper respect - though having to have Devil’s Daughter interfere on her behalf suggests the lack of respect goes both ways.</p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>


<strong>Nadia Snow</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Arrogant Heel</p><p>

Titles Held: AAA Tag Team (x2, with Demelza Wade as "The A-List"), AAA Top Contender (x1)</p><p>

Tag Team with Demelza Wade (The A-List)</p><p>

Biography: Nadia Snow arrived in AAA after a frustrating stint in Atlanta. Unfortunately, Snow and fellow USPW exile Demelza Wade have chosen to take their frustrations out on the AAA roster for several years and show no signs of stopping. That's because they talk a big game - and have the skills to back it up. Demelza Wade's held the Femme Fatale title, and there's no reason to believe Nadia Snow won't have at least one turn as champion before everything's said and done.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/VcZ3dx5.jpg</span><p>

<strong>Demelza Wade</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Big League Star</p><p>

Titles Held: AAA Femme Fatale (x1), AAA Tag Team (x2, with Nadia Snow as "The A-List"), AAA Top Contender (x1)</p><p>

Tag Team with Nadia Snow (The A-List)</p><p>

Biography: One of few AAA Triple Crown Champions, “The A-Lister” Demelza Wade has held every AAA title and proven herself a formidable competitor. Of course, if you want to know how good she is, just ask her. She’s more than happy to talk about her favorite topic - herself. Whether solo or with her fellow A-Lister Nadia Snow, Demelza Wade shows no sign of being anything less than the star she claims to be.</p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><span style="font-size:12px;">Upper Midcard</span></span></strong></p></div><p></p><p> </p><p>


<strong>Suzanne Brazzle</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Old School Face</p><p>

Titles Held: AAA Femme Fatale (x1), AAA Top Contender (x1)</p><p>

Biography: Suzanne Brazzle has been a force in AAA for over a decade, and she sees no reason to stop now. She's a classic wrestler, able to out-think any competitor who comes her way. Don't let her devotion to fair play and good sportsmanship fool you - Suzanne Brazzle has the goods to beat any woman in AAA on any given day...a fact that Tracy Brendon had better consider, as she continues to harass Brazzle.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/57sF3YA.jpg</span><p>

<strong>Tracy Brendon</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Old School Heel</p><p>

Titles Held: AAA Top Contender (x1), AAA Tag Team (x4, with Michelle Brendon as “The Brendon Sisters”), AAA Hall of Fame Inductee (with Michelle Brendon as “The Brendon Sisters”)</p><p>

Biography: Tracy Brendon is already an AAA Hall of Fame inductee with her sister Michelle for her tag team work. However, with her sister retired, Tracy is out to prove that she was the dominant half of that legendary tag team. At the very least, it appears her sister held back some of her more unsavory character traits, as Tracy has proven she’s more than willing to take the low road without her sister’s good influence.</p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>


<strong>Paige Croft</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Machine</p><p>

Titles Held: None</p><p>

Biography: Paige Croft is living proof that size isn’t everything when it comes to wrestling success. Croft uses agility and precision to twist her foes into knots. Her ability to make anyone tap out regardless of size, and her all-business attitude in-and-out of the ring has gained her the nickname “The Tiny Terminator”, which her foes will tell you is all too accurate. With her potent mix of technical aptitude, speed, and laser focus, the Rise of the Machine seems inevitable.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/5Auj7Hh.jpg</span><p>

<strong>Jaime Quine</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Fan Favorite</p><p>

Titles Held: AAA Top Contender (x3)</p><p>

Biography: The step-sister of AAA legend (and current color commentator) Cat Quine, Jaime Quine is carving out her own legacy in AAA. Already having held the Top Contender’s title a record three times, Jaime has been at war with former USPW Women’s Champion Cherry Bomb since the New Year. Should Jaime defeat Cherry Bomb, she would take the next step toward stepping out of the long shadows cast by her step-sister.</p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><span style="font-size:12px;">Midcarders</span></span></strong></p></div><p></p><p> </p><p>


<strong>Zoe Ammis</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Old School Heel</p><p>

Titles Held: AAA Tag Team (x1, with Steph Blake), AAA Top Contender (x2)</p><p>

Tag team with Steph Blake (Blake & Ammis)</p><p>

Biography: Zoe Ammis is loud, brash, and obnoxious...and those are some of her better attributes. However, despite any personal failings, as a wrestling professional Ammis’ talent cannot be denied, as a graduate of the famed De Colt Power House. Don’t let her underhanded tactic fool you into thinking Ammis doesn’t know her way around a ring - that’s a one way ticket to staring up at the lights. Whether solo or with the equally disdainful Steph Blake, it’s good advice to never turn your back on Zoe Ammis.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/PVM1Kw9.jpg</span><p>

<strong>Wendy Anderson</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Fan's Own</p><p>

Titles Held: AAA Top Contender (x1)</p><p>

Biography: A graduate of the famed AAA Cat’s Lair wrestling school, Wendy Anderson adds some top-rope flair to the solid fundamentals taught by Cat Quine. Anderson’s been able to translate this potent combination into an AAA Top Contenders’ reign. With a future as wide open as the sky she takes to in the ring, Anderson may find gold yet again.</p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>


<strong>Jessica Bunny</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Girl-Next-Door</p><p>

Titles Held: AAA Tag Team (x4, with Katherine Goodlooks as “Good Lookin’ Bunny”, x1 with Steffi Chee)</p><p>

Tag team with Katherine Goodlooks (Good Lookin’ Bunny)</p><p>

Biography: One of the greatest tag teams in AAA history, Good Lookin’ Bunny has won the hearts of AAA audiences for over a decade. Hearts aren’t all they’ve won - Good Lookin’ Bunny has won four Tag Team championships in the process. As half of the assuredly Hall of Fame worthy team, Jessica Bunny’s bright smile and plucky attitude has endeared her to fans of all ages. Together with her partner Katherine Goodlooks, Jessica Bunny is out to prove that positivity is powerful.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/Ij4JV2X.jpg</span><p>

<strong>Devil’s Daughter</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Vampiric</p><p>

Titles Held: AAA Tag Team Champion (4x, with Vixxen as “Wild Times”), AAA Hall of Fame Inductee (with Vixxen as part of “Wild Times”)</p><p>

Biography: The Daughter from the Dark Side, the enigmatic Devil’s Daughter, is already a legend in the AAA Tag Team scene. A four-time tag champion and Hall of Fame inductee for her work with Vixxen as part of Wild Times, Devil’s Daughter was the cool and introverted yin to Vixxen’s out-of-control yang. With Vixxen having left AAA to sow her seeds of chaos elsewhere, Devil’s Daughter looks to carry on the legacy of devastation Wild Times left in their wake, this time in singles competition.</p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>


<strong>Katherine Goodlooks</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Girl-Next-Door</p><p>

Titles Held: AAA Tag Team Champion (4x, with Jessica Bunny as “Good Lookin’ Bunny”)</p><p>

Tag team with Jessica Bunny (Good Lookin' Bunny)</p><p>

Biography: Katherine Goodlooks is more than just, well, good looks. She’s a fine competitor in the ring, and one of the most positive people on the entire AAA roster. “Adorable is Awesome!” is more than just a motto to Goodlooks, as the Adorable One has proven herself to be an awesome tag team competitor alongside Jessica Bunny in the four-time champion team of Good Lookin’ Bunny.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/Lz8zst8.jpg</span><p>

<strong>Kate Lilly</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Fabulous Heel</p><p>

Titles Held: AAA Tag Team (current; x4, with Debbie Rose)</p><p>

Tag team with Debbie Rose (As Lilly & Rose)</p><p>

Biography: When Kate Lilly signed with Debbie Rose to AAA, people predicted great things. But could anyone have predicted just how great the team of Lilly & Rose would be? As the premier high-flying team in AAA, Kate Lilly has finished off many an opponent with her Lilly Launch Pad frog splash. There are no guarantees in professional wrestling, but no one would be surprised if it's Kate Lilly and Debbie Rose that become the first five-time AAA Tag Team champions.</p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>


<strong>Talia Quinzel</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: No Gimmick Needed</p><p>

Titles Held: AAA Top Contender's (current; x1), AAA Tag Team (x1, with Selina Svelte as "The Uprising")</p><p>

Tag team with Selina Svelte (The Uprising)</p><p>

Biography: Talia Quinzel towers over most of her opponents at six foot tall. What might be even more towering is the potential greatness that may lie ahead for Quinzel. With a punishing assortment of backbreakers, Quinzel has more than enough in her arsenal to handle her opponents. Unfortunately, that doesn’t stop her and her partner in The Uprising, Selina Svelte, from bending or outright breaking the rules. Nevertheless, it’s proven effective enough to earn her the AAA Top Contender’s belt - and it’ll be a tall order to take the belt off her.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/ftiHnYI.jpg</span><p>

<strong>Debbie Rose</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Prima Donna</p><p>

Titles Held: AAA Tag Team (current; x4 with Kate Lilly)</p><p>

Tag team with Kate Lilly (as Lilly & Rose)</p><p>

Biography: It's said every rose has its thorn. Debbie Rose may be nothing but thorns. Her prickly personality hasn't stopped her from becoming one of AAA's top tag team specialists, along with her botanically themed partner Kate Lilly. With her top rope moves and impeccable teamwork, there may not be a better tag team in AAA today - which is why Debbie Rose is a four-time champion.</p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>

Biography: Steffi Chee returns to AAA after having spent several years plying her trade in Canada, and then Europe.

<strong>Christy Higgins</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Clean Cut</p><p>

Titles Held: AAA Top Contender (x1)</p><p>

Tag Team with Simony Sentinel (The Princess & the Punk)</p><p>

Managed by Joanna Silver</p><p>

Biography: Maybe when you hear “princess”, you think of frilly pink dresses. Christy Higgins likes those, among other fancy outfits, but she also likes getting into the AAA ring to prove “feminine” doesn’t mean “pushover”. Make no mistake - Christy Higgins can scrap with the best of them. Teaming with her good friend Simony Sentinel, these pretty and punky in pink ladies are looking to climb the ranks of the AAA tag team division. With her talent, it seems like it’s only a matter of time until this Princess is crowned an AAA champion.</p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>


<strong>Simony Sentinel</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Punk</p><p>

Titles Held: None</p><p>

Tag Team with Christy Higgins (The Princess & the Punk)</p><p>

Managed by Joanna Silver</p><p>

Biography: The “Punk” of “The Princess & the Punk”, Simony Sentinel’s live for the moment attitude is evident every time she takes a leap of faith off the top rope. Don’t let her pink hair and tattoo sleeves fool you - Sentinel is a professional of the highest caliber, and all that time in various mosh pits means she’s tougher than an old leather jacket. Along with Christy Higgins, these perfectly matched counterparts are ready to spearhead a youth uprising in the AAA tag division.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/3vdoMpU.jpg</span><p>

<strong>Selina Svelte</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Sidekick</p><p>

Titles Held: AAA Tag Team (x1, with Talia Quinzel as "The Uprising")</p><p>

Tag Team with Talia Quinzel (The Uprising)</p><p>

Biography: Selina Svelte’s smoothness in the ring is seen, in a positive way, in her crisp and precise technical wrestling. Unfortunately, it also means that she’s quite adept at breaking the rules without the referee seeing her do so. It’s a shame, as her technical prowess, combined with the power of her partner in the Uprising, Talia Quinzel, should mean that the team shouldn’t need to cheat to achieve victory. Unfortunately, it does not appear Qunzel or Svelte agree. Whether done fairly or not, it cannot be denied that Selina Svelte is a smooth operator who can hurt an opponent whether paired or solo.</p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>


<strong>Ellie May Walton</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Redneck</p><p>

Titles Held: None</p><p>

Biography. The Psycho Hillbilly Ellie May Walton grew up a farm girl in Appalachia, and it shows in her prodigious strength. Walton can toss a hay bale with ease - and can toss an opponent around just as easily. Don’t let her stained overalls and dirty boots fool you. When Ellie May get in the ring, it’s serious business. Particularly when she gets that far away look in her eyes. When opponents see that, they know a psychobilly freakout is about to be unleashed.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Laura Flame</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Bitch</p><p>

Titles Held: None</p><p>

Biography: Laura Flame's personality runs fire and ice - and neither extreme is terribly comfortable to be around. Not that Flame particularly cares about anyone's comfort. This can be seen in her excellent combination of striking and grappling skills, and in her devastating Flame Fire Kick finisher. Holding a black belt and having been trained by the infamous Hell Monkey, Laura Flame may soon be blazing a trail to her first AAA gold.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Ariel Breaks</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Blue Chipper</p><p>

Titles Held: None</p><p>

Biography: Ariel Breaks has already joined the AAA roster at just 20 years of age. Trained by NOTBPW's Melody and influenced by the great joshi women's wrestlers of Japan, Breaks has the foundations of a great career ahead of her. Unfortunately, Breaks herself seems all to aware of her pedigree, and despite her training not translating into immediate victories, there's no doubt in Breaks' mind that she's already a big, big star.</p><p> </p><p>

</p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/XaMRxhf.jpg</span><p>

<strong>Joanna Silver</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Pirate</p><p>

Titles Held: None</p><p>

Managing Christy Higgins and Simony Sentinel (The Princess & the Punk)</p><p>

Biography: You may notice The Princess & the Punk will call out “P3” on occasion. Joanna Silver - AAA’s resident One-Woman Armada and Pirate Scourge of Puget Sound - is the third P. Though she may be on the outside, cheering on the other P3 members to give their opponents the old heave-ho, Joanna isn’t afraid to step into the ring herself on occasion. Whether as a manager or as a competitor, Silver promises to always take life on at full sail.</p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p>


<strong>Sarah Taylor</strong></p><p>


Gimmick: Bubbly Babyface</p><p>

Titles Held: None</p><p>

Biography: One of AAA’s youngest competitors, Sarah Taylor has a bright future ahead of her. Though she’s still learning, it’s easy to see the potential just waiting for Taylor to put it all together. New to the sport, Taylor has already won over Angels with her winning attitude and obvious improvement every time she heads to the ring. Only time will tell when - not if - that improvement leads to victories, but when it does, this bubbly babyface will have thousands of people ready to cheer those victories.</p>

<p>The Wrestling World, End of March 2016</p><p> </p><p> <strong>March 30, 2016</strong></p><p><strong> 9:15 pm</strong></p><p><strong> AAA Headquarters</strong></p><p><strong> Tacoma, Washington</strong></p><p> </p><p> Cat Quine sat at her desk in what was once a foreman’s office, positioned above what was once a machinist’s shop, and was currently the “Cat’s Lair” AAA wrestling school and gymnasium. Three months had passed since Anne Stardust had officially passed the reigns of the company over to Cat. <em>Things have been moving so fast</em>, thought Cat, <em>that I’ve barely had time to sit down and figure out what’s going on the the world outside of AAA.</em> But Sharie said Cat needed to keep a wider view of what was going on in the industry, and let it be said that whether she was Sharie or in-character as Cherry Bomb, the woman was rarely wrong about things and she was always quite insistent about it.</p><p> </p><p> Cat had spent the last several days putting something together. Cat’s deal with Cherry was fairly simple - Cherry got paid, and got the info she wanted. Cat had promised she’d get something put together by the end of the month. Now it was the end of the month and ready or not, it was time to send this off.</p><p> </p><p> </p><blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="42833" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"><div>Sharie,<p> </p><p> I promised you this before the end of the month...this counts, right? Anyway, I’ve been looking up what information I could about the state of the industry, particularly women’s wrestling. Here’s what I’ve found. Look, it’s all official and everything!</p><p> </p><p> <span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong>All Women’s Wrestling Companies</strong></span></p><p> </p><p> <strong>AAA</strong> - There’s us, of course. There's different ways to measure how good we're doing, but if you go by the metrics at totalextremewrestling.com, we're the 18th most important wrestling company in the world, out of 39 promotions. Plus, if you go by the internet nerds, we put on a better show than Coastal Zone, or anyone else on the West Coast. We are the biggest all-women's wrestling company this side of the planet. That's the good news. The not-so-hot news is that we've lost about $20,000 in our first three months. It's not leaking cash left and right, but expanding out to the Midwest is costing us. We lose money on those shows, no doubt, but we're making progress. Slow progress - we rate a 21 in the Midwest, a jump of 1, and we've improved our footprint here in the Northwest - from 38 to 39. My hope is that we can get big enough before we lose too much liquid cash. We've still got $230,000 - nothing to get panicked about yet, not even close.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>5SSW </strong>- Note that I said we were the biggest women’s wrestling company this side of the planet. By pretty much any measure, we are not the biggest women’s wrestling company in the world. That honor would go to Japan’s Five Star Supreme Wrestling. TEW has them as the 13th biggest company in the world. They even have a Japanese PPV carrier now.</p><p> </p><p> I respect the hell out of the joshi workers, and I never want our product to be anything like it. The injuries those women rack up...this is supposed to be simulated fighting. It’s one thing to work stiff, it’s another thing to routinely risk breaking your neck and think that’s somehow “normal”. Like I said, there’s no doubt that they’re great workers, and they’re working in front of Japanese audiences who expect something a lot more physical than our audience which means they have to work more intensely and dangerously than we do. Probably even more than the men, given they’re already behind the eight ball in terms of proving their fighting spirit since they’re women.</p><p> </p><p> 5SSW has earned their place in Japanese wrestling. That said, they’ve got a decade on us in terms of history; I think we can be where they are, or beyond, given another decade. I’m not going to think about how old I’ll be in another decade. We have a working agreement with them, a long-standing one at that - I remember Anne bringing in Crusher Ishiwara back in 2003, and I suppose we’ve keep that door open. But honestly, what we do and what they do are so different, I don’t have a whole lot of use for their workers and they don’t have a whole lot of use for ours.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>QAW</strong> - Farrah Heskath’s promotion down in Houston is doing pretty well for itself. That said, they still have a ways to go. I wouldn't call them a regional promotion at this point, they're smaller than that. TEW has them ranked 28th in terms of importance - not bad, but not us.</p><p> </p><p> Farrah was always bright, with a head for this business, and it’s nothing less than genius for her to realize the increasing number of people in Texas with Mexican cultural ancestry and identity meant that lucha libre could work. She’s smart too, in the sense that she doesn’t want to compete with us. The war with Babes of Sin City - cold as it mostly was - didn’t help grow our business and it ended BSC just as they were trying to go legit. Farrah seems content at the moment to establish deep roots in Texas, and not expand into the Northwest or the Midwest. Plus, her product is different enough from the AAA product that it’s good for women’s wrestling in the US as a whole. Frankly, the working agreement we signed with them is probably more beneficial to them than us - though a stronger American women's wrestling scene helps us both.</p><p> </p><p> <strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Companies with Women’s Divisions</span></strong></p><p> </p><p> <strong>NOTBPW</strong> - My husband’s employer has a women’s division, and they’ve got some real talent. Not that anyone should be surprised. Would the Stone family accept anything but the best from their talent? They definitely pose a threat, in that they have the financial werewithal to offer written contracts worth several thousand dollars more a month that we can afford. They haven’t made any moves yet, but given their proximity to us, it doesn’t seem unlikely they might come knocking. Given how well regarded their company is, I suspect many of our girls would open that door and walk right on out of our company.</p><p> </p><p> The one saving grace we might have, in terms of a talent raid, is that NOTBPW's recently dropped in most people's eyes to a cult promotion, rather than a national one. Then again, the "cult" here is "Canadians", so it's not like they're small. And like I said, well regarded - 8th most important company in the world, 5th most in North America. There's no question it'd be a step up for our girls.</p><p> </p><p> <strong>USPW</strong>- These people.</p><p> </p><p> They are, by any measure, the #1 company in the world. Their financial resources are staggering. They have not one, but two weekly television shows. As much as I hate losing J-Ro and Sara Marie, how on earth can I blame them for taking USPW up on their offer? Guaranteed contracts, merch sales, access to the Reverie broadcasting network, who always need good looking women to be on their other television shows...AAA can’t compete with that. I could declare war on them, but that’d be like a single ant declaring war on a herd of elephants. They wouldn’t even notice, and they’d still crush us anyway. For a long while, we could count on Alicia Strong’s ego helping us - our girls might outshine her, so her daddy never gave the green light to hire them. But Sam Strong doesn’t run the show down in Atlanta any more, and the new regime clearly doesn’t seem to feel the same need to coddle her. The only saving grace is that they somehow manage to have all that TV time and still only put the women on for a small fraction of that time, and hopefully they won’t feel the need to raid our talent very often. I’m under no illusions that it’ll never happen again, I’m just hoping it’ll be a good long while.</p><p> </p><p> <strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Other Stuff and Things</span></strong></p><p> </p><p> - UEW and VWA have started up a war. Which is a refreshing change from UEW and EWA trying to end each other, at least for the moment.</p><p> </p><p> - Farrah Heskath signed a deal to appear as a manager for New York City Wrestling. Smart play, Farrah, making some connections in the Northeast.</p><p> </p><p> - Johnny Martin broke his damned neck over in PSW. Why a 46 year old man who's already a DAVE legend decides to keep working in a hardcore promotion at his age, after all of his injuries, baffles me. He's lucky he isn't dead.</p><p> </p><p> - If there was a war between the Big Three in the US, it's now a war between the Big Two, because no one's looking at TCW as a national promotion any more.</p><p> </p><p> - Invincible Pro Wrestling declared war on the SWF. No word if the SWF even noticed, or if they did, if they have yet managed to stop laughing uncontrollably.</p><p> </p><p> - Dan Stone, NOTBPW's legendary founder, and his kid Edd Stone made up. Which would explain the simultaneous news that hell had frozen over.</p></div></blockquote><p> </p><p> Satisfied with the write-up, Cat sent it off to Sharie. Not that it hadn’t been on the forefront of her mind, but now it was time to leave the past behind and focus on the future. There was a phone call she had been needing to make for a while. She scrolled through her phone’s contacts list and found a number she’d had for years but hadn’t dialed in some time. She made the call and waited. One ring. Two rings. Three rings. And then, the woman on the other end of the line picked up.</p><p> </p><p> “Hello, Farrah? Cat Quine. I’m sorry calling so late, but I wanted you to know that I’m hiring one of your girls.”</p><p> </p><p> </p><div style="text-align:center;"><p>**********</p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p> <em>OOC: And that's it for the three month round-up!

<p><strong>A Debuting Worker</strong> vs. Sarah Taylor vs. Joanna Silver</p><p>

I suspect that with JRo and Sara York gone, now isn't the time to sign bottom feeders. Someone is coming to make an impact, is my guess.</p><p> </p><p>

Ariel Breaks vs. <strong>Paige Croft</strong></p><p>

Ariel may have some upside, but I don't know in which universe she'd be the favorite to win this match up.</p><p> </p><p>

The Princess & the Punk (Sentinel & Higgins) vs. <strong>The A-List </strong>(Wade & Snow)</p><p>

I like the pairing, and I like the name, but I don't see Sentinel and Higgins getting anything out of this encounter. The A-list is what the name suggests.</p><p> </p><p>

Main Card</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Cherry Bomb</strong> vs. Bobbie McGee</p><p>

I don't know the first thing about Bobbie McGee, so I'm mostly just betting on the known before the unknown. </p><p> </p><p>

AAA Top Contender's Title Match</p><p>

<strong>Talia Quinzel © </strong>vs. A Debuting Worker</p><p>

What debutante could there be that could go straight in and take one of the titles, even if it is the "junior" title? I hope I'm wrong here because it would be awesome.</p><p> </p><p>

Jessica Bunny vs. <strong>Zoe Ammis</strong></p><p>

Not betting against the Obnoxious one.</p><p> </p><p>

Jaime Quine vs. <strong>Devil's Daughter</strong></p><p>

I think they could have a little mini feud before Jaime moves on to bigger things. For that, I think Devil's Daughter needs to pick up the first win. Or Jaime just gets her revenge, and then I'm just wrong. <img alt=":p" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/tongue.png.ceb643b2956793497cef30b0e944be28.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></p><p> </p><p>

AAA Femme Fatale Title Match</p><p>

<strong>Steph Blake © </strong>vs. Wendy Anderson</p><p>

It would be kinda weird if Blake lost the title here, but I bet Wendy will look good in her loss as you're in desperate need of legit babyface contenders. Jaime is "the One", but it would probably be very useful with more than one possible name on the list.</p><p> </p><p>

I Quit Match</p><p>

<strong>Tracy Brendon</strong> vs. Suzanne Brazzle</p><p>

I think this is the fight I have least feeling about. I don't know who would benefit more if they came out on top. Maybe there 's more story in Brazzle dropping even further down? I don't know... Basically a coin toss. </p><p> </p><p>

Bonus Questions</p><p>

1. Who will be the returning AAA veteran in the pre-show match?</p><p>

Here's where not having the game in front of me make things difficult. Is <strong>Lauren Easter </strong>an AAA alumni? I say it's her, because she's exactly the kind of main event name you could use.</p><p>

2. Who will be the debuting worker challenging for the AAA Top Contender's title? Hint - they're the worker Cat Quine was calling Farrah Heskath about in the previous entry.</p><p>

Now, the QAW roster I'm more familiar with. <img alt=":D" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/biggrin.png.929299b4c121f473b0026f3d6e74d189.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></p><p>

Good babyfaces...there are a handful to choose from. First I thought Alina America would be good, but I think you went straight for <strong>Foxxy LaRue.</strong> Danielle Sweetheart would also be a good choice...</p><p> </p><p>

3. What will be the show score? Last show score was a 55. Without York main eventing, I think it drops a little, but hopefully not that much. I'll go <strong>52</strong>.</p>

<p>Really enjoyed the roster round-up. It's good to know where everyone stands, and I'm liking USPW as the villain. Should be fun seeing how the roster shakes out with the big loses, but everyone is pretty solid up and down the card.</p><p> </p><p>

Pre-Show</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>A Debuting Worker</strong> vs. Sarah Taylor vs. Joanna Silver</p><p>

<em>Just a hunch. Sarah and Joanna still have a lot to learn, and if the debuting wrestler is a veteran, thye probably need to get a win off of the bat.</em></p><p> </p><p>

Ariel Breaks vs. <strong>Paige Croft</strong></p><p>

<em>Should actually be a pretty good match. Paige is too important in my opinion to lose a match like this, even if Ariel has a nice future with the company.</em></p><p> </p><p>

The Princess & the Punk (Sentinel & Higgins) vs. <strong>The A-List (Wade & Snow)</strong></p><p>

<em>I'm interested to see where Wade and Snow end up after this shuffle. I would think they would get slotted for the top of the card, but who would they really faceoff there? Simony and Higgins winning would be a huge upset in my book, but it good happen. I'm just not willing risk it.</em></p><p> </p><p>

Main Card</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Cherry Bomb </strong>vs. Bobbie McGee</p><p>

<em>Ha! My goodness, will there be anything left of McGee to scrape off the mat?</em></p><p> </p><p>

AAA Top Contender's Title Match</p><p>

Talia Quinzel © vs. <strong>A Debuting Worker</strong></p><p>

<em>Very unfair to Talia. </em><img alt=";)" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/wink.png.686f06e511ee1fbf6bdc7d82f6831e53.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><em> If this is who I think it is, this would be a great way to introduce her. I could also see a DQ finish to set up a longer term feud to get both wrestlers over.</em></p><p> </p><p>

Jessica Bunny vs. <strong>Zoe Ammis</strong></p><p>

<em>Obnoxious, definitely. </em><img alt=":)" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/smile.png.142cfa0a1cd2925c0463c1d00f499df2.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /><em> Really just a personal preference here.

<strong>Jaime Quine </strong>vs. Devil's Daughter</p><p>

<em>Hmmm, DD could get a cheap win to keep this feud going, but I think Jaime is too big of a part of the future of AAA to lose too much.</em></p><p> </p><p>

<em>Blake is quickly becoming a favorite of mine, and I'm hoping for a long title reign for the Queen of Mean. </em><img alt=":D" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/biggrin.png.929299b4c121f473b0026f3d6e74d189.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></p><p> </p><p>

Bonus Questions</p><p>

1. Who will be the returning AAA veteran in the pre-show match? Hmm, this is pretty tough. I'm not too familiar with AAA history, and I think you would save a big return for the main show. It could be a lot of different people, but I'll say <strong>Golden Delicious</strong>, fresh off of maternity leave.</p><p> </p><p>

2. Who will be the debuting worker challenging for the AAA Top Contender's title? Ah, has to be either Danielle Sweatheart or <strong>Foxxy LaRue</strong> right? I think you could have a lot of fun writing Foxxy, so I'll go with her.</p><p> </p><p>

3. What will be the show score? Last show score was a 55. I'll go with <strong>57</strong>.</p>

AAA Not Just a Pretty Face, Part I - April 2, 2016


OOC: In a break from how I've written these up before, I've decided to split this event into two parts. You'll see why as you read through, but for now, no spoilers. Now, onto the show!



From the streaming archives of the Angel Athletic Association website:


The website lists three dark matches, which are not included in the steaming feed. The results are displayed in text before the actual show begins.


In the ring at AAA Not Just A Pretty Face


Sarah Taylor and Joanna Silver stand in the ring, awaiting the third member of the three-way dance. The murmur of the audience - at least the ones who are there, filing in - start picking up in volume, wondering what the delay was. Finally, the tension breaks with a massive power chord.


“Oi! Oi! Oi!”


<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/pR30knJs4Xk" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


The long-time fans let out a bit of cheer as the Thunder from Down Under, Golden Delicious, returns to AAA. Golden Delicious soaks up the moment, then sprints into the ring, ready to get her second AAA run underway.


(In a terrible pre-show match, Golden Delicious defeated Sarah Taylor and Joanna Silver in 6:33 when Golden Delicious defeated Joanna Silver by pinfall with a Melbourne Surprise. Match rating - 32)


(In an extremely short pre-show match, Paige Croft defeated Ariel Breaks in 5:16 by pinfall. Match rating - 54.)


(In a decent pre-show match, The A-List defeated Sentinel & Higgins in 9:38 when Demelza Wade defeated Simony Sentinel by pinfall with a SuperStar Kick. Match rating - 53.)


With the pre-show matches done, the feed of the show begins in earnest. The long-time voice of the AAA, Jim Lou Freebush, and retired AAA legend Cat Quine sit at their ringside announce desk.



"Good evening, Angels! I'm Jim Lou Freebush, here with my broadcast partner, AAA Hall of Famer Cat Quine, coming to you from the Reed Gym on the Idaho State University campus in Pocatello, Idaho - go Bengals! We've got a house of 2,713 on hand for what is promising to be an exciting night of AAA action."


"Absolutely, Jim. Last week, we saw a new era begin as Steph Blake became the new AAA Femme Fatale champion. Thanks to her, her henchwoman Zoe Ammis, and our corrupt general manager Cat Jemson, Blake's ended the careers of two of AAA's most iconic competitors in less than a month. You have to wonder if the reign of terror has only begun. Speaking of which, what on earth is going on here?"


The ring crew set up a red carpet in the ring, and leading to the entrance way. Oversized floral arrangements at placed in each corner of the ring. Once everything is cleared,

blares from the speakers. Steph Blake emerges with Zoe Ammis trailing just behind.



"I know I'm supposed to be objective here, Jim, but Steph Blake has one of the most objectively punchable faces in the entire world."

Though “Pomp and Circumstance” faded out, the jeers of the crowd remain just as loud. Steph Blake’s expression, however, is rhapsodic. Zoe Ammis snatches Jim Lou Freebush’s microphone and presents it, with an oversized bow, to AAA’s new Femme Fatale champion.


“Thank you, dear Zoe. At least *some* people around here have some sense of manners and dignity.” Ammis’ curtseys in response. “As for you...people out there?" Blake sounds disgusted to use the term "people" for such unwashed rabble. Did we hurt your feelings, when we sent Joanne Rodriguez scurrying away like the vermin she is? Did we make you feel sad when I ended the reign - and the AAA career - of Miss Sara York?” Facetiously, she looks around the audience. “Then we say - good! For years now, we have told you time and again who the greatest wrestler - nay, greatest woman - in this company is. And for years, you have shown us nothing but disrespect. Is it due to jealously? Is it due, perhaps, to your woefully limited intellects?”


Zoe Ammis steals Cat Quine’s microphone. “What she means is, you’re all a bunch of stupid idiots!”


Blake waits for the booing to die down. “As usual, our dear friend Zoe cuts to the heart of the situation. Whatever your reasons have been for disrespecting us, however juvenile and banal they might have been, what you can no longer deny is this.” Steph Ammis holds up the Femme Fatale championship to a chorus of boos. “And so long as we hold this - and we will hold this for a very, very long time, you peasants - you will respect that which we have accomplished. The Queen’s reign begins tonight!” (Angle rating - 57)

A blast of music over the PA indicates someone in the back may not have the respect for Blake to which she feels entitled.


<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/kb-NaFnmzRQ" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>



Wendy Anderson comes out, luckily with her own microphone as there’s no more members of the announce team from which to steal one. She gets in the ring, Blake glaring a hole into her. “Blah blah blah, 'queen' this and 'respect' that. You know why these people don’t respect you? Because you and your little dancing monkey just never. Shut. UP. You want to talk about how great you are in the ring, how about you show don’t tell and take me on tonight?” The crowd pops for the idea.


Ammis runs at Anderson, who immediately goes into a fighting stance, but Blake holds Ammis back. “Let me at her! I’ll show her who the dancing monkey is! Let me at her!”


Blake calms Ammis, then turns to Wendy Anderson. “What right do you have to approach the queen, the Legend Slayer, and request, much less demand, anything of us? Your lack of manners is appalling. You belong out there with those animals, not in the same dressing room with us. But. We cannot deny your...tiny spark of inspiration. These people need to understand just who we are, and as you say, deeds speak louder than words. We will grant your petition. Now, begone! Our celebration has not ended.” Anderson rolls her eyes, but leaves, clearly not wanting to witness the celebration first hand...and makes the mistake of turning her back on Zoe Ammis, who - no longer held back by Blake, immediately hits Anderson with her version of the Backstabber, the Double Cross. Ammis and Blake begin kicking Anderson while she’s down, despite Anderson’s best attempts to fight off the double team. As a coup de grace, Ammis grabs one of the large floral arrangments, vase and all, and brings it down on Anderson’s head. The vase shatters, flowers fly about the ring, and Anderson is left in a puddle of water and broken pottery. (Angle rating - 40)


As the ring crew clears the ring, Jim Lou Freebush and Cat Quine get their microphones back. Cat Quine immediately lets her opinion be known. “She calls herself a queen, but she’s nothing but a coward, to attack someone with their back turned! A double coward, for having Zoe Ammis do her dirty work for her!”


Freebush, paragon of objectivity he is, says, “Coward or not, we have a Femme Fatale title match tonight! But you have to wonder whether the assault we just witnessed on Wendy Anderson will mean the challenger will have a major disadvantage going into that match.”


“Jim, I don’t think there’s any question about that. Heck, even at full strength, so long as that harpy Zoe Ammis is hanging around ringside, you’d already be working at a major disadvantage. There’s no doubt Steph Blake has stacked the deck in her favor tonight.”


“A fair point, Cat. But let’s talk about our main event tonight - Tracy Brendon takes on the Modern Day Miracle Suzanne Brazzle in an I Quit match.”

“I Quit matches require you not only to defeat the body of your opponent, you have to defeat their heart and soul as well. There are no pinfalls, no submissions, no count outs, no disqualifications. The only way to win is to make your opponent say those two magic words, ‘I Quit’. Suzanne’s a long-time vet here in AAA and she’s seen her share of wars, but this may be her most physical challenge yet - especially given the out of control anger issues that Tracy Brendon has had these past couple of months.” (Angle rating - 38


<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/WXV_QjenbDw" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>



Cat’s analysis is stopped by the soulful voice of Janis Joplin playing through the arena. A woman enters, in a tie-dye tanktop, with tie-dyed streaks in her hair. Jim Lou announces on the house mic, “Ladies and gentlemen, all you Angels out there, from Woodstock, New York, let’s give a warm AAA welcome to Bobbie McGee!” The crowd obliges, politely if not enthusiatically. Back on his regular mic, Jim Lou asks, “Cat, what do you know about Bobbie McGee?”


“Well, Jim, Bobbie McGee is a very exciting new addition to an already great AAA roster. She’s not going to overpower you or outwrestle you, but she’s got a lot of heart - and a whole lot of aerial moves that will get you out of your seat. Bobbie loves the competition of professional wrestling, but she says she thinks AAA could use a little peace, love, and understanding.”


<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/NGGQRJkNutA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>



Cat’s grimace can be heard, even though she’s silent. Then, “This woman? Peace, love, and understanding? Not really her thing.”


Opening Match: Bobbie McGee vs. Cherry Bomb


http://i.imgur.com/Y4lKwTx.jpg vs. http://i.imgur.com/Dw8k489.jpg


The referee gives instructions to Cherry and McGee, after which, McGee gives the peace sign to Cherry Bomb. The audience starts chanting “Cherry’s gonna kill you!” while Bomb tilts her head with a puzzled look on her face. And then the demolition begins. Cherry Bomb uses her impressive power to toss McGee around the ring like a rag doll, and when it appears Cherry’s satisfied with the level of violence she has unleashed, she hits her double underhook powerbomb, the Cherry Bomb, for the victory.





(In an extremely short match, Cherry Bomb defeated Bobbie McGee in 4:41 by pinfall with a Cherry Bomb. Match rating - 40)


“I’m going to say that Bobbie McGee’s decision to reach out to Cherry and flash the peace sign might have had an effect on Cherry Bomb,” says Cat.


Incredulously, Freebush asks, “Do you mean that it angered her, leading to the destruction we just witnessed?”


“No, Jim, I’m saying that Cherry might have actually been moved to mercy, since she decided to stop beating the patchouli out of McGee in under five minutes instead of dragging it out even longer. Oh, no, wait, it looks like I spoke too soon, Cherry wants some more.” As McGee struggles, dazed to get to her feet, Cherry hits another Cherry Bomb, yelling at McGee to stay down this time. “A difficult draw for your first match, Bobbie McGee, but things can only go up from here. Because they can’t go down much more than that.” (Angle rating - 44)


“Speaking of things going down," Freebush segues, "the next thing to go down here at AAA Not Just a Pretty Face will be a match between Talia Quinzel and a mystery challenger for the Top Contender’s Title. Quinzel has stated multiple times since this match was announced that this match is ‘unfair’.”



As Talia Quinzel appears with Selina Svelte, Cat says, “Talia does have at least something of a point. Not knowing your opponent ahead of time means you have to strategize on the fly, while your opponent has time to figure you out ahead of time. On the other hand, as an AAA champion, you should be ready to defend your title against any and all comers and you should be able to make adjustments as needed. Besides, the way Talia has gone on about things, you wonder if she’s making justifications for losing before the match has even begun, and that’s not a good mindset to be in as a competitor.” Cat pauses for a moment, and then, “I have word from the back that Talia’s challenger has arrived. We’ll cut to the loading dock to see who this new competitor is.”


The feed cuts backstage, where a white, chromed-out Escalade has pulled up. The windows are tinted, and it’s impossible to see inside. The rear passenger door opens, and a woman with a gloriously large afro, oversized sunglasses, and an air that’s all business steps out.



“Jim, do you know who that is!”


“In fact I do, Cat. Talia Quinzel’s mystery challenger tonight is Foxxy LaRue. Foxxy is a two-time world champion in Queens of American Wrestling, a Texas promotion run by none other than former AAA Femme Fatale champion Farrah Heskath.”


The camera follow Foxxy as she works her way through the bowels of the Reed Gym. As she walks through the curtain, the audience applauds, though lightly as the audience is clearly not as familiar with QAW as the announce team, as Foxxy's entrance music plays for the first time. (Angle rating - 30)


<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/OjpRDmXoyMk" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


Foxxy grabs a mic as she walks through the curtain. She lets her music play for a while, then addresses the audience on the way to the ring. “If y’all don’t know me, well, y’all are about to find out just who I am. My name is Foxxy LaRue, and I’m from Houston, Texas, and I’m here because I want to show the world and all y’all what this foxy lady can do. That’s who I am, but if y’all want to really know who I am, just watch me in that ring tonight. Talia Quinzel, I’ve come all the way from the great state of Texas because I’m ready to show everybody - including you - that Foxxy LaRue is the new boss lady of A-A-A!" The audience, perhaps lukewarm on Foxxy at first, seems to be behind her now. (Angle rating - 49)


Talia Quinzel and Selina Svelte begin loudly complaining to the referee, who completely no-sells their protests. Foxxy whips off her sunglasses and goes into a sprint, sliding into the ring and immediately going after Quinzel in a fierce, brawling style. “Looks like Foxxy came here ready for a fight tonight!” says Cat.


AAA Top Contender's Championship Match


Foxxy LaRue (Challenger) vs. Talia Quinzel (Champion)


http://i.imgur.com/gVkOI5G.jpg vs. http://i.imgur.com/dcnOexP.jpg


Quinzel’s height comes into play, as her reach advantage on Foxxy allows her to start brawling back, at first on the defensive, but soon giving as good as she’s getting. The referee lets them go, busy trying to get Svelte out of the ring. The match goes at 100 miles per hour at first, nothing fancy, with lots of striking. Eventually, the women start breaking out their respective arsenals in between flurries of punches and kicks - judo-style headlock takeover by Foxxy, short-arm clothesline by Quinzel, drop toe hold by Foxxy - until Quinzel is able to hit a massive big boot on Foxxy. Able to slow the pace of the match down a little, but still keeping the tempo up, Quinzel pulls Foxxy to her feet and whips her into the ropes again, setting up a devastating tilt-a-whirl backbreaker on Foxxy. “No one in AAA delivers a backbreaker like Talia Quinzel. Foxxy came out like a house afire, and there’s no shame in her showing, but that’s got to end this one.” Talia mugs for the crowd, then goes for the pin. The referee counts 1, 2...and Foxxy kicks out at 2 and a half!


Quinzel looks absolutely shocked, and Selina Svelte immediately jumps onto the ring apron. The referee goes to Svelte, to make sure she doesn’t jump in the ring, giving Quinzel an open to throw Foxxy into the nearest corner and choke her with her foot. “With how long Quinzel’s legs are Jim, you know she’s got some real leverage as she tries to choke out Foxxy with the ref’s back turned. Come on, ref, pay attention!” The ref does stop struggling with Svelte to go over and break up Quinzel’s illegal choke, then turns to Svelte and makes a dramatic motion signaling he’s ejecting her from ringside. Svelte is aghast, but the referee makes the motion to toss her with even more emphasis, and event security begins to head toward Svelte. Quinzel beings to jaw with the referee as Svelte is escorted to the back. “Jim, you have to think removing Selina Svelte from ringside takes away Quinzel’s insurance policy. If Quinzel wants to keep her title, she’s going to have to do it herself.”


Quinzel’s arguing with the referee almost costs her as a recovered Foxxy rolls her over for a flash pin attempt, getting a solid two before the surprised Quinzel kicks out. The attempt, and Svelte’s ejection, seems to rattle Quinzel as Foxxy takes charge. Foxxy’s burst of offense culminates with a clothesline that sends Quinzel over the ropes and out of the ring, Quinzel landing on her feet before stumbling back against the railing. Foxxy comes out to press her advantage, but as she goes for a running high knee, Quinzel catches her in a devastating spinebuster to the mats outside of the ring. Quinzel grabs Foxxy by her afro and pulls her over the announcer’s table. Quinzel sweeps everything off the table, causing Freebush and Cat Quine to clear out of the way. Quinzel tosses Foxxy onto the table, then climbs back into the ring. The six-footer climbs the turnbuckle closest to the table, clearly not used to doing so. She takes a massive leap, looking for an elbow drop but connecting with something that looks more like a splash. The women lie in a heap as the referee runs out of the ring to check on them. The referee raises his arms and crosses them into an “X”, clearly deciding to not count this one out. Finally, Foxxy carries the limp body of Quinzel to the ring apron, rolling her into the ring. Quinzel is on her hands and knees and Foxxy hits her running drop kick to the head, what she calls the Flash Head Kick. Foxxy goes for the pin and Quinzel gives no resistance as the ref counts to three.


(In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Foxxy LaRue defeated Talia Quinzel in 14:01 by pinfall with a Flash Head Kick. Foxxy LaRue wins the AAA Top Contender's title. Match rating - 50)





The referee hands the Top Contender’s belt to Foxxy LaRue, who goes to celebrate with people in the front row. The crowd is more subdued than expected after such an exciting match and a title change, however. In the ring, AAA’s medical team has gotten Quinzel to her feet, and two EMTs are supporting her. Quinzel’s left leg is completely limp. Selina Svelte runs out to check on her partner, and is waved off by the EMTs so they can continue to held Talia get to the back. (Angle rating - 26)


Backstage at AAA Not Just a Pretty Face



Cherry had been on pins and needles at the gorilla position since Dwight signaled there had been an injury that would stop the match. The falling feeling in her stomach had only gotten worse when she watched the EMTs essentially drag Talia back behind the curtain.



As Talia crossed behind the curtain, she let out a stream of profanity, mixed with sharp intakes of breath and exclamations of pain. Selina Svelte looked beside herself, and the other AAA members assembled backstage looked nearly the same. Unknowingly, some of the assembled were right in the way of the trainer’s room. Thank god we’re at a college gym with actual facilities, and not some rathole club, she thought. “Everybody, move! Get out of their way!” Cherry’s booming command startled the gawking onlookers, who hurried out of the path to the trainer’s room. Cherry followed, and then closed the door. Talia deserved to not be gawked at like a car crash.


Because she’s definitely not getting a respite from the pain, Cherry thought. As the EMTs began working with Talia, Cherry found one EMT who wasn’t actively busy. “What the hell happened?” she demanded.

The EMT, perhaps slightly cowed by Cherry’s forcefulness, answered, “It’s not possible to say with 100% certainty at this point, but based on what we can see and what she’s saying, I’m fairly certain she’s torn her left quadriceps.”


“How? What happened?”


“I mean, again, I can’t say for certain, but I think the tear happened when she jumped. She might have put too much weight onto the left leg, it looked like she planted with the left leg instead of jumping with both at the same time. I can’t say for sure.”



Cherry came over the side of the trainer’s table, out of the way of the EMTs. She grabbed Talia’s hand. Selina Svelte burst into the room, and seeing her friend in pain, grabbed her other hand. Talia had tears welling up. Foxxy LaRue came into the room, her expression and her demeanor a far cry from the ultra-confident swagger she had in the ring. Svelte immediately wheeled on her.


“What in the hell is wrong with you? What in the hell kind of promotion is Farrah running down there? Jesus Christ, the first thing in this business is that you take care of your opponent!”


Foxxy seemed taken aback for a moment, but then a scowl of anger formed on her face. “What’s wrong with me? How about what’s wrong with you, huh?”


Cherry immediately stepped between the two women. “Stop it you two. Right now, you hear me?” The women hesitated for a moment, then both shook their heads in agreement.


“Selina, it’s not her fault,” said Talia. “It’s not -” A sharp inhale of breath. “It’s not anyone’s fault. I felt it go when I went off the top rope. I suggested that spot. I wanted to do something - ow - something memorable.” She laughed, weakly. “I guess I’m going to remember this one for a long time.” The women cracked a smile, despite themselves. “Foxxy, listen, I’m sorry.”


Foxxy looked incredulous. “You’re sorry? To me? What...why?”


Talia gritted her teeth. “Because this was just a stupid accident. It’s no one’s fault. And I don’t want this to make people think you hurt me on your first day here.”


Foxxy shook her head. “Talia, I don’t...thank you. I don’t know what else to say. Thank you.”


The EMTs started to lift Talia off the table. The EMT Cherry had spoken with earlier spoke to her again. “We’re going to take her to the ER at this point. She’s going to need surgery. There’s so way for us to tell whether this is a partial or a full tear, but either way, she’s going to need orthopedic surgery.” Cherry nodded as she watched Talia leave the room, under the support of several EMTs.


Goddamnit, she thought.


Jim Lou Freebush and Cat Quine are shown at the ruins of the announce table. Broken table pieces and battered equipment are strewn everywhere, and the announce team is standing as ring crew try to clear things up. Jim speaks. “I’ve just gotten word from the back that Talia Quinzel will be receiving medical treatment at a local hospital.”

Cat nods, visibly shaken. “That’s good. Whatever my feelings about Talia’s sportsmanship, there’s never been a question in my mind that she is one of AAA’s best athletes. I hope she’s okay, Jim. I really do.” Cat takes a moment to compose herself. “Well, Angels, as was obvious, that last match was a war, and it looks like a bomb went off out here. We’re going to put things back together and continue the show in just a moment here, all our broadcast equipment seems to have emerged unscathed -”


As she says that, the feed debuffers and stutters. A terrble, discordant electronic screech replaces the audio for a few agonizing seconds, and then a camera shows a shot over the shoulder of a figure wearing black robes, sitting in a rocking chair. Her face, obscured by a hood, cannot be seen. The figure’s hands are a chalky white, her fingernails black. She is holding a baby doll in her lap. The doll is swaddled like an infant. The doll’s hair is missing in clumps, the rest matted and tangled. One eye is missing. The doll’s face is smudged with dirt. The doll’s unchanging, cherubic smile seems a grotesque mockery of innocence. The woman rocks as she sings, in a sing-song lullaby tone completely at odds with the original tone of the lyrics.


“Under full moon I saw you,

So soon I’ll take you,

Up in my arms, too late to beg me,

Or cancel it though I know it must be

The killing time,

Unwillingly mine.

Fate, up against my will,

Through the thick and thin.

I will wait until

You give yourself to me…”


The feed stutters and squeals again, and returns to the announce team in the Reed Gym. They appear utterly mystified, literally mouth agape. Freebush is the first to speak. “Cat...what was that?”


Cat looks deeply troubled. “I...I don’t know, Jim. Angels, we apologize to you for that...odd interruption. Maybe...maybe some malfunction of some sort happened with the feed as the techs were checking the broadcast equipment?” Cat does not sound convinced of her own theory.


An awkward silence hangs for a moment, until Freebush decides to press forward. “In any event, Cat, we’ve still got several more matches tonight here in Pocatello, Idaho.”




OOC: As previously mentioned, I’m breaking this event into two parts. The stuff with Foxxy, Talia, and the aftermath turned out to require more real estate than I wanted to cover in a single update. There’s still four matches left on the card, and I wanted to let people digest this show in reasonable portions, instead of trying to go all pelican and cram it all in at once. Obviously, some of the prediction contest results are here, but there’s still plenty more to go. Please feel free to comment, speculate on the rest of the card, theorize where we’re going from here, or tell me that I’m the worst writer in the history of the TEW forums :p


Also, thanks for the diary of the month nominations. I'm glad that you're having a good enough time reading this to give me a nod. It's appreciated :)

I had guessed that Foxxy was the mystery opponent of Talia, I don't know why I couldn't imagine she could win on the debut. This conservative knee jerk reaction I guess that champions more often retain than lose. Oh well. It was a nice moment. Shame about the injury. I really like Talia, which the attention I've given her in my dynasty might reveal. Funny that the two met in matches in both dynasties at the same time. Is serendipity the word for it?

This next one is a battle between the <em>ever-charming</em> Zoe Ammis, who hopefully has recovered from her blindsided beating down of Wendy Anderson early tonight, and everyone's favorite wabbit, Jessica Bunny. Here comes Ammis now and...crap, she's got a mic."</p><p> </p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/RkMOrtI.jpg</span></p><p> "Hello, suckers!" Ammis exclaims with glee. "D'ja miss me? Don't worry, I didn't miss you." Ammis steps through the ropes. "Now, let's see, tonight I take on Jessica Bunny. Let me tell you, I'm shakin' in my boots here. A 36 year old woman who still carries a velveteen rabbit around with her. Yep, I'm real scared. Hey, Jess, wanna know how I used to play with other kids' dolls? I tore their dolls' heads right off!

Ammis hits her Double Cross backstabber and decides to go for a one-foot-on-the-chest pin. Bunny turns that into an ankle lock, causing Ammis to swim for the ropes. Embarrassed, Ammis ground-and-pounds Bunny, hits the Double Cross again for good measure, and making a proper cover gets the three. <em>(In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Zoe Ammis defeated Jessica Bunny in 7:06 by pinfall with a Double Cross.

Your thoughts?"</p><p> </p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/57sF3YA.jpg</span></p><p> "Brazzle! I gave you chance after chance! I told you that you were a fossil, a relic, that you were too old to go any more! That it is time for you to step aside and let the next generation take your place. But you didn't listen to me, you let your pride and your ego delude you into thinking that you still got what it takes. When I make you scream out in agony, 'I Quit!" you need to realize that I'm doing you a favor. That's right! I'm doing you a favor by shattering your delusions that you are still main event material. Your days have come and gone, Suzanne, and it would take a miracle that's just not coming for you to make me quit." Brendon snarls, then stalks out of the ring. <em>(Angle rating - 51)</em></p><p> </p><p> "Strong words, as always, from Tracy Brendon. Cat, our next match is very much personal. One month ago, Jaime Quine took on Cherry Bomb in a ladder match. Jaime appeared to have the match won, but right before she could take the victory Devil's Daughter pushed over the ladder, opening the door for Cherry Bomb to win instead."</p><p> </p><p> "That's right Jim," Cat responds, "and we found out why that was two weeks later, when Cherry, shall we say, 'influenced' our general manager to grant Devil's Daughter a title shot against Sara Marie York. It was a rotten bargain, but tonight, Jaime might just give DD a refund - with interest. If you haven't been watching - and if not you've missed so much - here's a video recap of how we got here." <em>(Angle rating - 33)</em></p><p> </p><p> </p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong><span style="font-size:12px;">Jaime Quine vs. Devil's Daughter</span></strong></p></div><p></p><p> </p><p> </p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/5Auj7Hh.jpg</span> <strong><span style="font-size:12px;">vs.</span></strong> <span>http://i.imgur.com/Ij4JV2X.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p> Jaime Quine's fired up for the match from the outset, clearly having neither forgiven nor forgotten Devil's Daughter for her interference at Girl on Girl Action one month ago. Quine relies heavily on her striking in this contest, while DD tries to slow the pace down and set up her Going Down Below cobra clutch. DD's also clearly looking out for Quine's aptly named K.O. Kick, twice catching Quine setting up for it. Each time, DD immediately drops to the canvas and rolls out of the ring. However, after an impressive snake eyes to the corner, DD's dazed enough to not be able to react in time to dodge. Jaime Quine connects square on DD's chin, which is more than enough to get the pin. <em>(In a decent match, Jaime Quine defeated Devil's Daughter in 14:36 by pinfall with a K.O. Kick. Match rating - 52)</em></p><p> </p><p> </p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong>WINNER, BY PINFALL: JAIME QUINE</strong></p><p> </p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/5Auj7Hh.jpg</span></p><p> </p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p> It's now Cat's time for a ringside interview, this time with Suzanne Brazzle. "Suzanne, I'm sure you heard Tracy Brendon's comments about you earlier. Do you have a response?"</p><p> </p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/p39q1H6.jpg</span></p><p> "I do. Tracy, I didn't want things to come to this. I have a lot of respect for your sister, Michelle. She was a perfect example of someone who came to each show, ready to take on whatever challenge might face her that night, but in the end respected her opponents, her fans, and this business. I respect her accomplishments. And I used to respect you the same way. But something happened to you along the way, and I don't know what it was. I guess it doesn't matter what happened to turn you into such a bitter, insecure head case in the end. What does matter is that I know I can't just pin you, because you'll figure out a way to say how you weren't actually defeated. I can't put you in a submission hold and knock you out, because you'll say you never gave up. This match, this I Quit match, it's the only way that you're going to stop. It's not enough to just win, I have to defeat you or you're going to keep coming at me. So, tonight, Tracy, we end this." <em>(Angle rating - 46)</em></p><p> </p><p> The feed cuts to Steph Blake backstage, who seems to have commandeered a camera operator for her personal use. Zoe Ammis stands in the background, the wild excitement animating her body a stark contrast to the icy smugness of Blake.</p><p> </p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/2m3v59w.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/RkMOrtI.jpg</span></p><p> "Wendy Anderson, you pathetic peasant. We know you can hear us. Tonight we were going to celebrate, to share our glory with these potato-eating peons. Instead, you decide to rise above your station and dare speak to us when not spoken to. <em>This will not do.</em> Steph Blake, the Slayer of Legends, the High Queen of AAA, deserves respect from an insignificant nothing such as yourself!"</p><p> </p><p> "Yeah, Wendy, you suck!" adds Ammis, helpfully.</p><p> </p><p> "We cannot deny that you fly through the air with the greatest of ease, Wendy. We cannot deny that were you to face any member of this roster, excluding us, you could be victorious. But we are not any other member of this roster. We are the AAA Femme Fatale champion. We are greatest wrestler to step between these ropes. You are a peer with every other poppet in the locker room, but we are without peer. Flawless such that diamonds are envious of us. Do you want to know what other quality of diamonds we surpass, you ignoble swine? We are harder than a diamond. Which you shall find out forthwith."</p><p> </p><p> "What she means, Wendy, is that Steph's gonna beat ya 'til candy comes out!" translates Ammis. Blake raises an eyebrow at the metaphor, and Ammis shrugs. Blake smiles, thinly, and Ammis grins wide. Ammis grabs the camera and puts her face right in it. "Smell ya later, Wendy!" <em>(Angle rating - 47)</em></p><p> </p><p> </p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong><span style="font-size:12px;">AAA Femme Fatale Championship Match</span></strong></p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/mkLIQNG.jpg</span></p><p> </p><p> <span style="font-size:12px;"><strong>Wendy Anderson (Challenger) vs. Steph Blake (Champion)</strong></span></p><p> </p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/PVM1Kw9.jpg</span> <strong>vs.</strong> <span>http://i.imgur.com/2m3v59w.jpg</span></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p> Wendy Anderson's high-flying, quick-paced offense often winds up being a decisive edge. However, Steph Blake's in-ring stamina is arguably better than any woman in the company, nullifying one of Anderson's most reliable paths to victory. Unable to wear Steph Blake out, Anderson has to resort to high-risk, high-reward maneuvers. Some, like a moonsault from the apron into both Blake and Zoe Ammis, who has trailed along ringside, pay off very well. However, the problem is that Anderson generally takes a lot out of herself with each maneuver, and is thus unable to capitalize on any chances that develop. Blake, on the other hand, finds herself unable to set up any of her favorite sequences due to Anderson's agility and evasiveness.</p><p> </p><p> It's Ammis that tips the scales, as she finds a wrench under the ring and smacks across the upper back with it while Blake distracts the ref. As Anderson stumbles forward, Blake uses Anderson's momentum to drop her with a massive DDT. Blake immediately goes for the pinfall, getting her feet onto the ropes for leverage. Ammis holds her feet down to maximum the leverage, and Anderson is unable to overcome the unfair advantage within a count of three. As soon as the referee's hand hits the mat a third time, Ammis tosses Blake's feet off the ropes to ensure there's no evidence of their chicanery. <em>(In a decent match, Steph Blake defeated Wendy Anderson in 16:12 by pinfall, illegally using the ropes for leverage. During the match we also had Zoe Ammis run in and attack Blake. Steph Blake makes defence number 1 of her AAA Femme Fatale title. Match rating - 53)</em></p><p> </p><p> </p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong>WINNER, BY ILLEGAL PINFALL, AND STILL AAA FEMME FATALE CHAMPION: STEPH BLAKE</strong></p><p> </p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/2m3v59w.jpg</span></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p> "After all of that talk talk talk about how superior she is, how no one's on her level, she needs a wrench, a crony, and illegal leverage to win her first title defense!" exclaims Cat Quine in disgust. "Steph Blake's a great wrestler, you don't become AAA Femme Fatale champion unless you are. But clearly, she doesn't think she's as good as she says she is - at least she doesn't think she's good enough to win without a little extra help."</p><p> </p><p> Jim Lou Freebush lets the sentiment hang for a moment. "Despite the questionable tactics she used, the record books will regard this victory over Wendy Anderson as a successful title defense, Steph Blake's first as AAA Femme Fatale champion. Cat, we have one more match tonight, one we've been waiting for all night."</p><p> </p><p> "I've been eagerly waiting ever since it was announced! You don't sign an I Quit match just because you want to beat an opponent. This match is to prove that you have not just beaten an opponent, but that you've conquered them. That you've broken their spirit. You don't sign onto one of these matches unless you have some real personal issues you need to work out in that ring. Let's go the video and show you just how personal this rivalry has become." <em>(Angle rating - 38)</em></p><p> </p><p> </p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong><span style="font-size:12px;">I Quit Match</span></strong></p><p><strong><span style="font-size:12px;"> Tracy Brendon vs. Suzanne Brazzle</span></strong></p></div><p></p><p> </p><p> </p><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/57sF3YA.jpg</span> <strong>vs.</strong> <span>http://i.imgur.com/p39q1H6.jpg</span></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p> Tracy Brendon paces in her corner, barely able to hold on her attack on Suzanne Brazzle, who seems just as ready to get things underway. As soon as the bell goes, the match turns into a slugfest. It becomes clear that this match isn't going to be pretty, and that technical wrestling is thrown out of the window. The referee remains in the ring, watching the action, but his only purpose is to hold a microphone. When Brendon gouges Brazzle's eyes, there's nothing he can say. When Brazzle puts Brendon into the corner and unleashes a flurry of punches such that Brendon slumps into the corner, he's powerless to stop the beatdown. It's clear that the AAA audience is not quite used to the level of violence on display, as several times the audience's reaction are gasps, not cheers, even when it's Brazzle laying into Brendon.</p><p> </p><p> As might be expected given the animus between Brendon and Brazzle, the match doesn't end early. As the match continues, the cumulative results of the savagery the women have unleashed on each other becomes clear. Neither wants to show how how weary they are, and when asked whether they want to quit, each woman shouts "No!" in no uncertain terms. That is, when they can shout, such as when Brendon uses an electrical cord at ringside to strangle Brazzle. Or after Brazzle drops Brendon throat-first with a Stun Gun to the steel railing. Brendon finally gets the upper hand on Brazzle, and decides to think big. She leaves Brazzle on the mat in the ring, going to the outside and tossing the stairs into the ring. She sets Brazzle's head on the stairs, then bounces off the ropes, looking to knee drop Brazzle's skull against the metal stairs at full speed. Brendon takes too long, though, as Brazzle rolls out of the way, leaving Brendon to drive her own knee into the unforgiving metal. Brendon writhes in pain, clutching her knee, but slaps the ref when he asks if she wants to quit.</p><p> </p><p> Brazzle shakes her head, and then, with a look that almost seems sad, brings Brendon into the corner, her legs splayed on either side of the ring post. Brazzle steps out on to the apron, takes Brendon's legs, and goes into a hanging figure-four leg lock using the ring post - usually an illegal hold, but not in a no-DQ I Quit match. As Brazzle hangs upside down, Brendon screams "No! No! No!" but Brazzle continues to hold on. The referee looks like he wants to stop this, but the rules prevent him from doing so. Finally, after an agonizingly long 30 seconds, Brendon finally screams, "YES! I QUIT, I QUIT!" The referee signals for the bell and immediately disentangles Brazzle and Brendon. <em>(In a decent match, Suzanne Brazzle defeated Tracy Brendon in an I Quit match in 24:52 by submission. Match rating - 53)</em></p><p> </p><p> </p><div style="text-align:center;"><p><strong>WINNER, BY SUBMISSION: SUZANNE BRAZZLE</strong></p><p> </p><p> <span>http://i.imgur.com/p39q1H6.jpg</span></p></div><p></p><p></p><p> </p><p> "Cat, I don't know if I can think of a more vicious, brutal match in recent memory."</p><p> </p><p> "No, I can't either, Jim, and if I don't see another like this one again any time soon, I'll be thankful for it. You have to hand it to both women - this was a grueling match, not for the weak at heart, and let me say there is no shame in Tracy Brendon giving up at that moment. There was no way out of that predicament, and she held out longer than I thought possible. I hope these two have put their issues to bed, because I don't think you can hurt another person worse than those two hurt each other tonight."</p><p> </p><p> "As we close out tonight, I'd like to thank every here in Pocatello, Idaho, and all the Angels watching at home for joining us tonight. On behalf of my broadcast partner Cat Quine, I'm Jim Lou Freebush. We hope you'll join us in two weeks for The Lass Frontier, AAA's very first show in the great state of Alaska.

Still, she kept a smile on her face and wrote out whatever dedication was asked. After all, these were the people who paid her salary, who bought the t-shirts, who shared links on social media. Some of them were a bit...odd, sure. A few, very few, were outright rude. But for the most part, the fans were polite. A little awkward and star-struck, perhaps. The idea of her being a star to be struck by amused Jaime. <em>I suppose I should be glad I don't get mobbed every time I want to go get a coffee, right?</em></p><p> </p><p> A prime example of "awkward and star-struck" was next in line, in fact. He was a slightly heavyset young man, college age by the looks of things, with thick black framed glasses which might have been ironic, or completely sincere. But as to her point about paying her bills, he had an AAA t-shirt that he had clearly bought from the merch table, and a coupon for a free autographed photo from any of the AAA roster signing in the lobby that night. It was always gratifying when someone picked Jaime, silly as she found her own delight.</p><p> </p><p> "I just wanted to say, I think you're great," he said.</p><p> </p><p> "Well, thank you, I think you're great for coming out tonight and seeing us," she said with a smile.</p><p> </p><p> "I think it's total crap when people say you only get chances because you're Cat's sister."</p><p> </p><p> "Ummm...thanks?" she said, her borderline displeasure creeping into her voice, even as her smile remained.</p><p> </p><p> "No! I mean - oh man, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to - anyway, I'm trying to say, I think you're really talented. I think you'd be a star no matter what your name was."</p><p> </p><p> Jaime's smile brightened. "You're darned right I would be," she said. "All right, who should I make this out to?"</p><p> </p><p> "Ummmm...could you make it say, 'GettinPotato'd says hello, Smarkdown City'?"</p><p> </p><p> <em>Man, he's nice, but he's weird.</em> "Of course I can." She signed the photo and passed it over to him. The kid looked like he was on cloud nine. <em>Very nice, very weird.</em> "And there you go. Thanks for coming out tonight, Mr. Potato Head," she said with a wink.</p><p> </p><p> "Oh man, this is awesome! Thank you!" he said, and he left the line, already pulling out his smartphone to put the picture onto the internet.

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Final Prediction Contest Scores</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

sincerenoble: 9/9 matches, 0/2 bonus, show score 57/was 49 - 9 points</p><p>

Dr_Avalanche: 8/9 matches, 1/2 bonus, show score 52/was 49 - 9 points</p><p>

MrWolf101: 9/9 matches, 2/2 bonus, show score 57/was 49 - 11 points</p><p>

<strong>Temes1066: 9/9 matches, 2/2 bonus, show score 50/was 49 - 12 points (+1 for closest to show score)</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Dang, Temes, way to go! Way to go, everybody! I'm mildly concerned that my match cards seem to be on the more predictable side; then again, AAA is somewhat conservative in how they're presented in the game and perhaps that's simply being carried through in my writing/booking as well. I think MrWolf101 was closest to being willing to guess the debuting Foxxy would win the title in her very first AAA match - perhaps I should have made that a bonus question, made y'all have to decide one way or another whether I'd pull the trigger on a title change. Anyway, Temes, I'll be sending you a private message with your prize - you get to decide just what in the heck move Suzanne Brazzle's "Miracle Connection" finisher is. Just so long as it's not a friggin' kick.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Overall Thoughts</span></strong></p><p> </p><p>

Got to admit, my booking plans for the next few months at this point in my save got wrecked by USPW grabbing up not one but two of my main event players. I think that's reflected in my worst show score up to this point, a measly 49. Clearly, I had been relying on SMY & J-Ro as crutches for my main event scene. There was a more than good chance that, at some point, either Joanne Rodriguez or Sara Marie York would go heel, resulting in the two of them headlining AAA's biggest show of the year, Women of Wrestling, in July 2016. That is, obviously, not happening.</p><p> </p><p>

Steph Blake, AAA champion, was definitely not in my long-term plans. Being wholly honest, wasn't entirely sure what I wanted to do with Steph before the talent exodus happened. Once that hit, though, I had to make a decision. I had actually given Demelza Wade & Nadia Snow a break to improve their morale when the news of the signings came down, so when I needed them the most, they weren't available. I knew I wanted to push forward the idea of Cat Jemson, tinpot dictator, but I needed a heel to do the "retiring" of York and J-Ro. Cherry Bomb was there, but she's been so entwined with Jaime Quine that I didn't want to slot her into the title picture. Tracy Brendon was tied up with Suzanne Brazzle. Steph Blake wasn't doing anything, and she was within legit main event popularity if she vampired J-Ro and SMY's popularities with fairly clean victories. Seeing that she had never been AAA Femme Fatale Champion, and it would be her first go with the title, pushed me over in terms of letting her have a run. Question now is, is Steph Blake a transitional champion, or do I let her have an actual run?</p><p> </p><p>

I'm not satisfied with the AAA tag team scene. I've got a ton of experience with heel teams - Lilly & Rose, Blake & Ammis, the A-List, the now half-on-the-shelf Uprising - and only one face team with significant experience, which would be Good Lookin' Bunny. I've got The Princess & the Punk going, but I can see that building up the tag division is going to be a major project, since I'm essentially starting from scratch at this point. Problem with AAA being a women's fed is that there's not actually a lot of choices in terms of bringing in an established tag team from elsewhere. Most places with just women's divisions don't team their women, I can only loot from QAW so much, and I'm not sure exactly how to integrate 5SSW joshi workers into the performance-heavy AAA. It's an ongoing quandary.</p><p> </p><p>

What do y'all think? About this show, about AAA's future, about what you'd like to see? I'm curious, because I like my ideas, but some of the best stuff has come from suggestions from others that I manage to incorporate that's way better than anything I had come up with!</p>

<p>My default answer tends to be that you're doing such a great job, why should you take advice from me? From a story stand point, I think Blake is just a fine champion. I am so jealous of the turn of phrase you gave her about "you're peer with everybody in the locker room, but I am peerless." It's fantastic. She could be the K.O to Ammis Y2J. If she can hold up the quality in the ring as well is another thing I guess you'll just have to monitor. Otherwise start making Jaime ready, I guess?</p><p> </p><p>

That weird fan at the end? I get creepy crawlies when I read about him. That better not be the end of the story.</p>
