Last year, Diva Dirt hand-picked five talents for its second annual Five to Watch list who we felt were making waves in women’s wrestling and embodied the traits it took to be a standout star. Those five talents, we felt had the talent, the look and personality to go far in the business and as such, they received the Diva Dirt stamp of approval.
This year, the Five to Watch is back! Five new talents will be unveiled over five days, beginning tomorrow, November 1st. Who will make this year’s list? The competition has been tough, as we’ve noticed more rising talent than ever before. But before we unveil the Class of 2011, we’re taking a look back at the Class of 2010 and what they’ve been up to since we included them in last year’s list…
Former WSU Spirit Champion Brittney Savage has risen to main event status in WSU following a face turn in August. She is now set to headline the company’s next iPPV, Breaking Barriers II, on November 19th in a steel cage War Games match.
Earlier this year, Savage won the annual WSU J-Cup tournament and went on to co-headline the Uncensored Rumble iPPV against Mercedes Martinez where she very nearly ended Martinez’s two-plus year reign as champion. Brittney won the belt when an unwitting referee failed to spot Martinez’s foot on the rope. However, the match was restarted and the win nullified as a second referee came out to correct the first’s mistake. Still, for just a moment, Savage had broken Martinez’s streak.
In August, Savage retired veteran Amy Lee, as she defeated her in her final match. The heel Savage won Lee’s respect with her performance, signalling a heel turn as she aligned herself with fellow WSU originals, Alicia and Martinez against the Midwest Militia.
In arguably the biggest independent female show of the year, Savage will team with Alicia and Martinez inside a steel cage on November 19th to face off against the Militia.
Brittney would also head north of the border, making her NCW Femmes Fatales debut in Montreal.
