Our first honourary NHB Girl!

10405406_10153147910561320_9139778708367265493_nWe are very proud to announce our very first honourary NHB Girl, Jessica Cookson to our web-site.

Jessica was a long-term fan of Australian wrestling and a staunch supporter of NHB Girls, our calendar launch and the MCW Fight 4 A Cause show in 2014.

She was inspired by a number of women in Australia, notably Siren Monroe, Kellyanne and Vixsin.

Often, Jessica spoke about training and becoming a part of the group of women she admired. She was to begin to do this in 2015, but it was not to be.

Unfortunately, Jessica lost her battle with a long illness in January 2015. We remember her to be bubbly, excited and always smiling when she was at shows. Her enthusiasm was infectious and admired.

It is in her memory, we make her a part of NHB Girls and thank her for the support. Our thoughts and love are with her family.

Shazza brings in 2015 with success

10945885_10153033645366800_7934420950758148905_oShazza McKenzie has kick started 2015 with force after being announced as Wrestle Hustle’s NSW Women’s Wrestler of the Year and a successful defense of the PWWA Championship against Kellyanne.

Unfortunately, after the match she was struck with the belt after she attempted advice on ‘two floozies’ (newcomers to PWA).

Shazza has a target on her back, will she be able to get her revenge at PWA: Dial J for Juicy?

Get more information about the upcoming PWA: Dial J for Juicy right here.

Skater to make her in-ring Australian return!

13864035233_75ca0b8be9_bFor the first time in 18 months, Kellie Skater will be returning to Melbourne City Wrestling.

After returning from overseas last year, she took some time to heal after being injured in Japan.

The Rate Tank and current SHIMMER Tag Team Champion will surely impress MCW audiences, when she returns to the company and makes her debut at the new Essendon venue.

Her opponent will be Siren Monroe, the Melbourne City Wrestling vixen who has used pretty nasty tactics to ensure that her other half, Tommy Hellfire gets the win. Can Skater evade these and pick up her first win in her home state in a long time?

More details for the Melbourne City Wrestling Vendetta can be found here.

World Wrestling Emma-tainment

EmmaFigureEmma has her very own figure!

This is a very exciting step for the Australian WWE Diva, making her the very first Australian woman to be immortalised in WWE figure form.

The figure is in Series 49 and you can see more information about it here.

In other Emma news, she recently made her return back to NXT which saw her on the end of a loss to one of the newest faces, Carmella.

Afterwards, Emma was snapped backstage, looking very grumpy and broody. Could we see a change coming in our bubble, happy, dancing Aussie?

Number 1 Contendership Bout Signed!

10945107_10153075197584557_8281004150508503424_oThe two women have fought all over the country and now they are bringing the fight back home. This time they are fighting for the number one contendership for the RCW Women’s Champion. They are both former belt holders of this championship and will be keen jelly beans to reclaim the coveted title.

Savannah, the first lady of Riot City Wrestling, has a lot to prove. There’s been an injection of women’s wrestling talent in the RCW pool over the past few years and some question whether she is still holding the ‘first lady’ title.

For Demi, she has not only grown as a wrestler but in leaps and bounds with every meeting a new opportunity to hone and sharpen her skills.

They previously met at Wrestle Rampage earlier this month, which saw Demi defeat Savannah, can she do it again?

NHB Girls Wrestler of the Year 2014

10527390_844802268893067_7853070340314807509_nEvie totally kicked 2014 out of the park.

She began the year training and working in Japan, making her mark working with Japanese promotion, DIANA. During her time there, she teamed with Madison Eagles against the Global Green Gangsters (Kellie Skater and Tomoka Nakagawa) for the SHIMMER Tag Team Championship as part of a Joshi4Hope show.

In April she headed back to the USA, another run at SHIMMER and had a crack at the SHINE Tag Team Championships (this time teaming with Kellie Skater) against Leva Bates and Mia Yim. Whilst they were unsuccessful in this bid, Evie’s name was firmly imprinted in everyone’s brain. She made this USA trip again in October, getting a shot at the SHIMMER Championship at the new champion, Nicole Matthews and also appeared on SHINE, this time against Allysin Kay.

She had a stellar year locally as well, she’s the former PWWA Champion and IPW Women’s Champion, defending and holding the belts for a long run. Shazza McKenzie defeated Evie in June and Britenay defeated Evie in an unification match in August.

10428414_845371062169521_4241689339166891313_nAppearing in the Global Conflict tournament in May, a tournament held in Perth by NHPW, it has slowly garnered prestige over the years, and she was among an elite roster of women such as Madison Eagles, Mercedes Martinez and Saraya Knight. Whilst she wasn’t successful in capturing the shield, she did teach resident maniac, Jay Taylor a lesson or two.

She made a successful Melbourne City Wrestling debut, which saw her appear on a handful of shows and participate in the Fight For A Cause tournament for the Vera and Jenny Cup. She made the final and whilst she wasn’t successful, she did give MCW’s first lady, KC Cassidy a thing or two to worry about.

Another highlight of Evie’s year was the reformation of the BFF’s. Evie’s tag team partner, Megan-Kate made her return to her best friend’s corner at an IPW show toward the end of the year.

Looking back on a year with so many achievements and a true commitment to her craft, it’s with much pride and much excitement, that we announce Evie as our 2014 Wrestler of the Year. Congratulations!

Past recipients of this award have been Kellie Skater (2012) and Madison Eagles (2013)

NHB Girls Break Out Wrestler Award 2014

10702217_844803085559652_66879410745283380_nUpon reflecting on 2014, the one person who’s name comes up repeatedly as having a stellar year, is the Queen of Queensland Wrestling, Toni Storm.

Having traveled around Australia most of the year, she’s made a huge impact on fans. Many rallying promotions to bring her back, just to get another look at the adorable-panda-hat-wearing-dancer who not only has the goofy sense of humour but the moves to back it up as well.

She made several appearances at Melbourne City Wrestling, even reaching the final of the Vera & Jenny Memorial Cup in November, part of a historic night at Warzone Wrestling in Melbourne, when the first women’s champion was crowned.

A regular at UPW, Pacific Pro and AWA in Queensland and she’s traveled to Adelaide to participate in the Riot City Wrestling, City Chicks shows.

10881591_851861718185999_9204848506881999980_nToni has traveled to the UK twice through the year, and even had her match with Kasey Owens with British Empire Wrestling voted Match of the Year. At present, she is wrestling in the UK.

In July, Kiwi Pro Wrestling announced that they had facilitated wrestler try outs for World Wrestling Entertainment and Storm was in that list.

She is also one of our calendar girls in our sold out, NHB Girls Calendar.

10448804_758513910855237_8558829883214060801_nStorm has improved leaps and bounds this year, taking her training and desire for experience in her hands and sought out multiple avenues to learn.

We are so proud of her, and elated to announce Toni Storm the recipient of our Break Out Wrestler for 2014 award.

Congratulations Toni!

Previous recipients of this award were Kellyanne English (2013) & Evie (2012)
