Who is she?
Towering physique? Check. Intimidating and dominating in the ring? Check. A touch of mystery about her? Check. Meet Germany’s Alpha Female — a woman with all the tools it takes to be female wrestling’s next big Goliath. Like Kharma or WWE’s fleeting Aloisia (Isis the Amazon), Alpha Female has a distinct size advantage over her opponents, making for a classic David vs Goliath battle, something that wrestling audiences have always been drawn to. With over 10 years of experience, Alpha has wrestled all over the world, but has yet to find fame in North America.
Her story so far…
Trained under the likes of former WWE and TNA star Joe E. Legend, Alpha made her debut in the world of wrestling in 2001 as Jazzy B. Since, she has worked all over Europe including native Germany, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Holland, Norway. She’s even wrestled in Africa. However, perhaps her greatest success has come since changing her name and gimmick to Alpha Female: a dominant, commanding presence who strikes fear in her opponents’ hearts.
As Alpha, the 6’1″ star is currently a champion in several different countries, including the EWE Champion in Spain and the TPW Champion in Turkey. Joining Pro-Wrestling: EVE in 2010, Alpha remained undefeated for six consecutive matches before losing her first match, but Alpha wouldn’t go down without three different rivals hitting three successive moves on her. However, the “Professional Predator” quickly returned to form with perhaps the most impressive win/loss record in EVE — 10 wins and just one loss.
Just last month, Alpha won the admiration of her Japanese peers during EVE vs Ice Ribbon which saw four stars from the Japanese promotion head to UK shores. Alpha proved her mettle in the ring with a hard-fought match against Hikaru Shida which was aired on Ice Ribbon’s #19pro television show.
As well as her work as a professional wrestler, the German giant has done a lot of television and modelling work including commercials for MTV and reality shows Germany’s Got Talent and Sing If You Can in Spain. Most recently, she was featured on national television in Germany on game show, Say the Truth, where celebrity panelists had to guess which of three women was the real Alpha Female.
In January 2010, Alpha took part in a TNA tryout while the company was in Europe, putting her on their radar.
Why we chose her…
Alpha Female is perhaps one of the most unique-looking wrestlers right now; her height and distinct presence makes her perfect for TV, so it’s somewhat perplexing that she isn’t already in WWE or TNA. Plus, she’s solid in the ring too. With her impressive win/loss record on EVE, it seems that a future EVE Championship match against Jenny Sjodin is inevitable. Then there’s her notable match against Ice Ribbon’s Hikaru Shida which could open doors for her to compete in Japan. The future is looking bright for Alpha, and we suspect that she could one day make it onto our screens, too.
Thanks to Pro-Wrestling: EVE for making two matches from its DVD series available to celebrate Alpha’s inclusion in the Five to Watch. These matches are available for a limited time only, so be sure to check them out!
