2 WWE Mae Young Classic Competitors Join Together & Steal Knockout's Title

From Team Vision Dojo:

Since being released, Zeda Zhang has been training alongside Renee Michelle at the Team Vision Dojo and this past Sunday, the two formed an alliance.

First, Zeda continues her undefeated submission streak in Melbourne, FL with the help of Renee Michelle over Sofia Castillo. In the semi-main event, Renee challenged Impact Knockout Amber Nova for the RIOT Women's Championship. Zeda helped behind the refs back to secure Renee the championship.

Amber Nova vs. Renee Michelle (full match - FREE)




Amber Nova had a busy weekend as aside from having the RIOT Women's title taken away, she also won a battle royal to become the CWE Vixen's Champion this past Friday. However, in the main event, she unsuccessfully defended it against Singapore's Alexis Lee.


Also, if you watched Undercover Boss Friday night, you saw Amber Nova at the WWE Performance Center. While it appears her scene was cut along with another independent wrestler standing with the group, she looked great on camera and it was a really heartfelt episode that Stephanie McMahon was great on.



Next live event featuring all these women and the top independent wrestlers in Florida will be on Friday, July 6 at 8pm at the Team Vision Dojo in Orlando, FL for I Believe in Wrestling. Also, the Dojo will be holding their next open house for potential students on Tuesday, July 10 at 7pm for potential students to attempt a first day's pro wrestling class.

Live events and open house tickets available:

Full results from the weekend:

Florida ORLANDO—Championship Wrestling Entertainment at the Team Vision Dojo: Amber Nova won a battle royal to win the vacant CWE Vixen's Championship ...

Peachstate 10th Anniversary Show Report from Carrollton on June 16

Photo Courtesy of Harold Jay Taylor
From Larry Goodman:

Sal Rinauro's eternal quest for the PWA Heritage Championship came to a heart-warming conclusion at X. Rinauro was on the first PWA show 10 years ago but the big prize had eluded him until he ended Kevin Blue’s title reign at 365 days last night. On the Father's Day eve, Rinauro' son joined him in the ring as he was presented with the title, capping off a panoramic night of wrestling.

The Thunderdome of Terror lived up to its billing, as Shane Noles defeated Rick Michaels in a grisly, blood-drenched hardcore match.

Paid attendance at the VFW Fairgrounds was 376, making it the 10th consecutive year Peachstate has drawn over 300 people for their anniversary event.

It was long, hot night at the Fairgrounds. The lack of AC on a 90-degree day made for uncomfortable conditions. With a running time of 3 hours and 45 minutes, the show didn't end until 11:30. Those factors undoubtedly took a toll on a crowd that never caught fire the way Peachstate crowds are known to do.

In recent years, Peachstate has expanded its compact 5-6 match format for their anniversary events. It was nine match card this year. With the benefit of hindsight, I'm thinking they will wish they held a couple of those match back.

In true anniversary fashion, the blasts from the past kept coming all night long.

Storyline developments abounded, including one retirement and one unretirement. The creative department is positioned with rich territory to mine. The devil will be in the details of the mining.
