This past weekend several Independent promotions crowned inaugural women’s champions in their respective companies, boosting their rosters while riding the wave of the growing women’s wrestling movement.
IGNITE Wrestling held its “Cinco De Mayhem” event on May 5, 2018. A triple threat match determined the first ever Women’s Champion. The match featured two fan favorites in IGNITE’s burgeoning women’s division as Kaci Lennox and Sofia Castillo took on the debuting Aspyn Rose.
Aspyn Rose emerged victorious by taking advantage of a split second stunning move to take the title in this hard-fought match against her more seasoned counterparts.

On Friday May 4, 2018 at PCWUltra’s “May the Fourth be with You” event, Chelsea Green took on newly debuted Impact Knockout Tessa Blanchard. The winner would be crowned the first ever World Women’s Champion.
