Welcome to Diva Dirt’s Five to Watch 2013! This annual list compiles five rising talents in the world of women’s 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.
ONE TO WATCH: CRAZY MARY DOBSON
Who is she?: While her style may not be the most refined, Crazy Mary Dobson definitely lives up to her name. Well known for her proficiency in deathmatches, Mary has begun to branch out from her bloody roots in the past year or so, making a name for herself in America, as well as overseas. With matches in the top women’s promotions in North America and several international tours under her belt, 2014 could be Dobson’s year.
Her story so far: Trained by fellow hardcore aficionados, Mickie Knuckles and Mad Man Pondo, Dobson made her debut in 2011 for IWA East Coast. From there Mary worked her way across the Midwest, taking on all challengers, male or female. 2012 saw her debut in the AIW Girl’s Night Out series, taking on the likes of Annie Social, Veda Scott and Athena during her run there. In 2012, she also made her way to Japan, competing for Reina, as well as Ice Ribbon. In 2013, Dobson went on another tour of Japan, this time competing for Diana and an European tour with ICW: Fierce Females. Dobson also made her debut for SHIMMER Women Athletes in October, jumping from the SPARKLE pre-show to the main roster and taking it to independent standout Jessicka Havok, in a match that gained favorable reviews from fans in attendance.
Why we chose her: Crazy Mary Dobson has come pretty far in a very short span of time, and is taking advantage of every opportunity she’s given to the fullest. With a great image, a ton of charisma and potential for days, we feel that 2014 could be Dobson’s breakout year.
