PWI Female 50 2011 Revealed

This year’s Pro Wrestling Illustrated Female 50 list has finally been revealed!

The magazine is due to go on sale later this month, but has obtained a copy.

Earlier this week, it was reported that SHIMMER Champion, Madison Eagles, had claimed the top spot, but now you can see who else scored big.

Speaking on the list, PWI revealed how they chose who to represent them with the main spot: “This year’s list was unlike any other in the four-year history of the Female 50. For one thing, there was no obvious frontrunner in either WWE or TNA. Last year’s number one, Michelle McCool, retired after a few lackluster months. The WWE Divas title dropped in prominence and was held for a significant amount of time by Brie Bella who, while improved, doesn’t exactly conjure thoughts of Sensational Sherri or Trish Stratus.”

“So we made a bold decision. We looked to the indies. Two possible candidates were SHIMMER champion Madison Eagles and WSU champion Mercedes Martinez. It was a difficult choice to make,” the magazine explains. “Fortunately for us, Martinez and Eagles faced off in March for Eagles’ SHIMMER title. Eagles managed to win a terrific match, which proved to be the deciding factor in our decision.”

“While being on WWE’s or TNA’s global platform helps your chances, it doesn’t mean you get a free passage onto the Female 50.”
