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…
Athena caught our eye with her work in Texas promotion, Anarchy Championship Wrestling, but has since expanded around the US. Now a regular in SHIMMER, Athena has competed against the likes of Cheerleader Melissa, Tenille and others. Recently, she picked up her first win in SHIMMER over Mia Yim.
In January, the self-proclaimed “Wrestling Goddess” made her debut in WSU, as well as competing in a 10,000 Tacks Match in ACW. Ouch!
Athena was recently crowned the new ACW American Joshi Champion, defeating Lady Poison.
