Rest in Peace, our friend Stewart Allen

Stewart-Allen-Saraya-Knight-e1413225628530-300x290“Lee’s not coming,” Stew says with a touch of amusement in his voice, when I answered our monthly Skype phone call for our live SHINE watching and catch up. “Why not!?!” I exclaim indignantly, it was always fun when it was the three of us and I was keen to hear how both of their recent trips had gone. “He thinks he has SARS.” Stew said without missing a beat and with a chuckle.

Now of course, Lee did not have SARS, but his amusement at Lee’s pain (which then turned into a long-running joke between the three of us), is one of the things that made me smile. He had a wicked sense of humour, which shone through in each and every one of our conversations.

I met Stew in 2012 a few months after opening up this website. I am the first one to tell you, that I opened this site up with very little knowledge of what the hell I was doing, or knowing anyone else outside of my bubble that enjoyed women’s wrestling as much I do. Lee Burton reached out to me first, introducing me to Stew and the three of us (+ my husband, Cory) got along straight away.

Lee, Stew and I had regular Skype wrestling ‘dates’ watching shows from SHINE, SHIMMER, AIW and WSU. I am sure both of the boys were floored that I have zero idea of what any of the moves are called, despite being a wrestling fan for about 20 years. They tolerated it though, Stew often explaining the names, patiently. My contributions to the conversation is always something like, “I love her hair!” or “Wow, her gear looks so pretty.” much to the boys amusement. In one our last conversations all together, the boys made all those comments, making my part redundant but proud that I could leave an imprint.

I loved hearing the boys debate about something wrestling related, and the times, we spent having a good ol’ chin wag about what we had seen, heard when we last saw each other. Stew had the best dry laugh. It was infectious. Whenever I had the opportunity, I always caught Bellatrix. I loved hearing Stew’s commentary on the shows and appreciated the shout-outs he always gave my way.

He was a true advocate for women’s wrestling, I truly learned so much for him. The podcasts that he and Lee produced together were always informative, engaging and supportive. It’s not fair that in our small community, we have to lose such a great person like him. Looking through the posts today from the individuals the took the time to share their stories about how they know him, they knew him and how much his company was appreciated, is heart-warming and touching.

Today, I remember the times he made me smile and laugh. Today I remember all the things he taught me. Today, I remember my friend, Stewart Allen, a quality human being, a genuine, kind-hearted, funny individual who was loved so much by anyone who came in contact with him.

Our thoughts and heart are with Stew’s family and close friends. We are sending big hugs in particular to Lee, the co-founder of Women of Wrestling with Stew, we love you Lee.

‘The world is rarely a fair place. That’s why it has people like me.’

Vale Stew, we love you.

WarZone Wrestling Crowns First Women’s Champion

WarZone Wrestling 20 will go down in books as a history making event. The Four-Way Elimination match came down to Kellyanne and Savannah Summers, after they eliminated Miami & Toni Storm.

Savannah Summers resorted to her cunning ways, enlisting in the help in her former Riot City Wrestling buddy, Miami to help her seal the deal.

Savannah Summers got the pin and celebrated with the championship, but the brewing war between herself & Kellyanne is just start beginning.

They will face off against each other at WarZone Wrestling 21 on November 29. Provided that Savannah Summers retains the championship, she’s got her first title defence against Demi Bennett in a Title vs Title match at RCW Key to the City this Saturday.

Preview: WarZone Wrestling 20 – Storm v Summers v Miami v Kellyanne

The 4th of October marks a new chapter for WarZone Wrestling Australia as they crown their very first Women’s Champion.

The focus on the women’s division shifted this year, and has gone from strength to strength.

Savannah Summers, Toni Storm, Miami and Kellyanne all are hungry for this championship belt and to put their stake into WarZone Wrestling history.

Toni Storm will be making her debut for WarZone Wrestling, the New Zealand born blonde has travelled extensive to sharpen her craft. From a short stint in Japan, to a long stint in the UK, for WarZone fans that have not encountered her before will surely underestimate the adorable-geeky-panda-hat wearing nature of Storm.

Kellyanne hasn’t wrestled in WarZone Wrestling in a long while, but fans can expect a very different Kellyanne since last time. She’s a graduate from The Lance Storm Wrestling Academy and she’s trained in Mexico. Upon, her return from overseas, she has gone from strength to strength. Like Toni Storm, it’s easy to underestimate her, but she’s quick in the ring and if you blink, you could easily miss it.

Savannah Summers is the former Riot City Women’s Wrestling Champion, and no doubt the frustration of losing that championship would be channelled into this match. The stakes are high for this former champion and she has impressed the past few shows, she’s very familiar with all of her opponents and will be using this knowledge to her advantage.

Miami, new to WarZone Wrestling is one of the toughest women we know. Her strikes are hard (and hurt!), and she has been training solidly since she relocated to Melbourne. She is the first female graduate from the Riot City Wrestling Academy, ironically during the women’s tournament for the RCW Women’s Champion, it came down to herself and Savannah Summers. It would come as no surprise to us, if there is a need to settle the score…

Who do you think will walk out as the FIRST WarZone Women’s Champion?
