Welcome to Diva Dirt’s Five to Watch 2011! This annual list compiles five rising talents in the world of female wrestling that we think have what it takes to be the next big thing. From their in-ring abilities to their unique personalities, we aim to spotlight some of the upcoming female talent that you may not yet know about. Over the next five days, we will unveil the names that the Diva Dirt staff have handpicked. Meet the Class of 2011…
Who is she?
Canada has delivered some of women’s wrestling best loved talent from TV names such as Trish Stratus to widely-respected independent wrestlers such as LuFisto. The next big thing coming out of Canada? This lady certainly lives up to her name as she’s been causing calamity in rings all around Quebec — it’s Kalamity. This little lady may appear quiet outside of the ring, but once you get her into it, things quickly change. Kalamity has built up her reputation as one of the finest females in the province of Quebec and has attained exposure around the world through the NCW Femmes Fatales DVD series.
Her story so far…
Kalamity has been around the business for several years. She started attending shows with an ex-boyfriend in 2004, then started valeting and eventually began training. Falling in love with the sport, Kalamity would continue to plug away for several years building up her name and repertoire.
It’s perhaps her work in NCW Femmes Fatales from which most will recognize Kalamity. In Femmes Fatales, Kalamity has been given the opportunity to ply her craft against some of the industry’s finest including a great bout with Cheerleader Melissa, as well as a match against Mercedes Martinez. Kalamity has also been highly praised for her work with LuFisto. In fact, earlier this year, Kalamity received a big vote of confidence when she was crowned the new Femmes Fatales Champion by defeating LuFisto. That makes her just the second champion in the company’s history.
Outside of Femmes Fatales, Kalamity has wrestled in the US against LuFisto for Jersey All Pro Wrestling. Of the match, Femmes Fatales promoter told us: “When she did her match against LuFisto in JAPW last December, the crowd started the match by asking her who she was, and ended up giving her an ovation.”
Kalamity also made her debut in SHIMMER last month, bringing her powerhouse style to Berwyn and impressing the crowd. Kalamity faced off against, and then formed a team with, veteran Hailey Hatred, who’s become a star in Japan. The weekend cemented Kalamity as a true star in the world of women’s wrestling.
Why we chose her…
With her recent Femmes Fatales Championship win and debut in SHIMMER, Kalamity is quickly making a name for herself and is being mentioned in the same conversation as female wrestling powerhouses such as Melissa, Martinez and LuFisto. We feel that Kalamity can only continue to rise through the ranks. She’s branching out into the US more through her work in SHIMMER, and we could certainly see more US promotions such as CHIKARA or WSU taking an interest. Plus, her hard-hitting style would go down well in Japan too. Kalamity has what it takes to be a top-level independent female wrestler like the aforementioned, and we’re looking forward to seeing her get there!
