It was a cracking night of wrestling and genuinely a pleasure and an honour for me to be a part of the commentary team calling the action. CCW Fight of the Valkyries was the first all-ladies wrestling tournament in to be held in North Wales - something I think CCW can be very proud of: but credit must go to the stars of the show, the unmissable upcoming talents of Violet O'Hara, Little Miss Roxxy, Lucy Sky, Jami Sparx and Ruby Summers. I would humbly recommend watching companies such as the Runcorn Wrestling Alliance and Tidal Wrestling where professional wrestlers such as these guys are trained/work regularly.
With regards to the show itself, man! It was pretty epic! Lucy Sky vs Jami Sparx - as I mentioned to my co-commentator, the Chairman of CCW Mason Tombs, that match alone could have been the main event. It was an awesome match with one particular highlight being Jami Sparx's suicide dive through the middle rope. Start as you mean to go on! You will learn how to execute the perfect Single Leg Crab if you watch Little Miss Roxxy vs Violet O'Hara - an outstanding match with many discplines being showcased. Ruby Summers vs Jami Sparx and Little Miss Roxxy vs Jami Sparx had star-power stamped all over them and were just top matches of the highest standard.
While the tournament was the night's main thrust, we had a fantastic match between G-Force and a newcomer to CCW, Alex Henry. A truly bruising encounter saw the excellent Henry somehow kick out of G-Force's chokeslam and manage to find a Diamond Cutter to put the Man Stronger Than Gravity away. What a debut for Henry, we can't wait to see more from this talented powerhouse. As for G-Force, there was no Dick Chambers at ringside, we Tombs and I discussed how much of a factor his absense was. One thing is for sure, G-Force won't take losing lightly and an angry G-Force is probably the scariest thing in the world.
Finally, just before the main event of the Fight of the Valkyries Tournament, we had a CCW Welsh Championship match between the challenger and No.1 Contender Mr. Williams and the reigning champion, 'Mr Bazinga' Keith the Destroyer Mathews. Williams had earned this title shot by irking Mason Tombs into a match a A Battle Between Fire And Ice last year. Having gotten past the Chairman, Williams was entitled to his match which was scheduled for this event. Without wanting to give too much away, you must watch this match. Two top performers giving it loads with a shocking finish?! Yes please! Somehow I don't think this rivalry is over.
Lastly all that remains to be said is a huge thank you to everyone who came out to Fight of the Valkyries or to any of our shows.
