News in Brief: PWWA Tournament News, Sara Del Rey vs. Meiko Satomura Next Weekend & More

Diva Dirt is back with another fix of news, notes and tidbits in the world of women’s wrestling. Check it out below:

In the tournament to crown a new Interim PWWA Champion in Madison Eagles’ absence, two more competitors have advanced after having their first round matches May 5 at the Casula Powerhouse.

Evie defeated her “BFF” tag team partner, Megan-Kate.

Shazza McKenzie received a bye into the next round – her original opponent, Eliza Sway, unfortunately had to withdraw from the tournament due to medical reasons. As a result, Jessie McKay challenged Shazza to a non-tournament match-up and the two girls went to a fifteen minute time limit draw.

This means that Kellie Skater, McKay, Shazza and Evie have all advanced to the next round of the tournament (to be held June 15th at the Camden Civic Centre).

For those whom were left disappointed by the fact Meiko Satomura was unable to attend JoshiMania back in December (and thereby, unable to wrestle her dream match with Sara Del Rey), need only stay that way one week longer – the match has been rescheduled for CHIKARA’s “Aniversario: The Ogg and I” event on May 20th!

Also on that show will be Saturyne vs. Kagetsu in a singles match and Sendai Sachiko teaming up with Dash Chisako to take on The Bravado Brothers in inter-gender action.

In addition to the Sendai Girls tag match already announced for the night before (at “Aniversario: A Horse of Another Colour”), Del Rey and Saturyne will also be in action. Saturyne will team up with Eddie Kingston, Scott Parker and Soldier Ant to do battle with Del Rey, Jigsaw, Shane Matthews and Green Ant.

However, the two will team up themselves only a few weeks later on June 2nd at CHIKARA’s iPPV show, “Chikarasaurus Rex: How to Hatch a Dinosaur”, when they verse The Batiri in a three-on-two handicap match. The event will be streamed live at www.gfl.tv.
