1) G.L.O.R.Y. Site News
Here we go with some quick updates, news and
thoughts about the G.L.O.R.Y. site...
==> Site Make-Over!
The G.L.O.R.Y. site make-over is essentially complete.
We've moved the site to it's new server home and just
and it's just a matter of adding a few finishing
touches such as visitor counts. That will be completed
If you are still going to the "old" G.L.O.R.Y. site,
make the change in your favorites or bookmark lists
Go to: http://www.GloryWrestling.com
The old G.L.O.R.Y. site is no longer being updated, so
your links to interior pages will be breaking soon
when the hosting company takes down those pages.
Can I ask a favor of everyone? For those of you who
have sites linked to G.L.O.R.Y.: can you check at your
earliest convenience and make sure that you are linked
to http://www.GloryWrestling.com I know that many of
you like to link directly to interior pages...but that
means that whenever the site changes, your links will
break. I never know when interior pages will have to
be altered. But I DO KNOW that www.GloryWrestling.com
will always bring you to our home page. Thanks!
==> 1st Annual Picture Of The Day Awards!
September 28th marked the one year anniversary of
G.L.O.R.Y.'s Picture Of The Day. We've brought you
365 of them...and we want to know which ones YOU think
are the best.
We're asking fans of G.L.O.R.Y. to send a list of
POD nominations for various categories which we've
Read the instructions and join in! This will only work
if everyone gets involved. Head over to the site, read
the rules, and then help us to determine who will be
the winners of the 1st Annual G.L.O.R.Y. Picture Of
The Day Awards!
==> New G.L.O.R.Y. Girls!
Admittedly, we haven't been adding new G.L.O.R.Y.
Girls to the site in the last six weeks or so. Between
moving the site and the events of mid-September, we've
been a little behind the curve. But the good news is:
THAT'S ALL ABOUT TO CHANGE!
October will bring a flood of new G.L.O.R.Y. Girls to
the site. Among the ladies who are prepared to be
* Shelby Beach
* Melicious Mel
* Brandi Alexander
* Lexie Fyfe (Yes, we think we're close!)
* Looney Lane
Did we mention that it looks like it is going to be a
big month at G.L.O.R.Y.? :-)
==> G.L.O.R.Y. Farewell
As excited as we are about bringing new ladies onto
the site for you, we also have to report about ladies
who are leaving. And one of those ladies is Colleen.
Colleen has been one of the most popular G.L.O.R.Y.
Girls...even winning a G.L.O.R.Y. Girl Award just a
few months ago. Recently, Colleen left her "home base"
of Maryland Championship Wrestling and rumors began to
swirl that she was actually leaving the business.
We recently contacted Colleen and found that she was
in fact, taking herself out of the wrestling business.
The reason? Simply the fact that she didn't have the
time to devote to it. Not surprising in our eyes.
Colleen was always a G.L.O.R.Y. Girl who did things
100% or not at all. And right now, Colleen has decided
that she wanted to devote more time to her personal
life and her family.
Although we're sorry to see her leave, we wish Colleen
the best of luck in whatever she decides to pursue in
the future. And of course, if she ever does get back
into this crazy business...she is always welcome to
jump right back into the "G.L.O.R.Y. Arena"!
==> Violet Flame Takes Over Picture Of The Day!
Well, it seems that what comes around goes around.
It was just a couple of months ago that Phoenix
hijacked the G.L.O.R.Y. Picture Of The Day and
demanded full editorial control over its presentation.
Her demands were the result of a match that she had
with Alexis Laree. If G.L.O.R.Y. fans wanted to see
the match photos, she insisted on writing the daily
picture descriptions herself. In a move that caused
some controversy among site fans, The WebMaster
relinquished control to Phoenix for the sake of
bringing the match pics to the fans.
The situation comes full-circle starting tomorrow as
Violet Flame has taken over writing the Picture Of The
Day descriptions for the next week.
Her recent matches against Phoenix during Canada's
national exposition were wild, to say the least. We
had heard about the action, but were unable to get our
hands on any pictures. It seems that Phoenix had
control of many of the official pictures taken during
the event...and she wasn't about to let us bring them
Luckily, G.L.O.R.Y. was able to track down some photos
from one of the Violet Flame/Phoenix matches that
took place when they teamed with their male partners
for a mixed tag match.
Far be it from THIS WebMaster to be revenge-minded,
but the first thing I did was contact Ms. Flame and
ask her if she was interested in taking over the
Picture Of The Day duties for that particular series.
She agreed immediately! It seems Violet was as
turned-off by Phoenix's twisted account of her match
with Alexis Laree as most all the other G.L.O.R.Y.
To follow Violet Flame's guest hosting of the
G.L.O.R.Y. POD all this week, simply head into the
site and click the "Picture Of The Day" menu item. Or
for now, you can just click...
2) G.L.O.R.Y. Girl News
==> Sugar Becomes Genesis
G.L.O.R.Y. Girl Sugar has become a little less sweet
and has changed her name to Genesis.
Why the change? It seems that Sugar has a whole new
attitude in the ring. She's been training...and she'll
soon be making the jump from ringside manager to
in-the-ring competitor. With the new attitude, this
lady has become more rough, more rowdy and more nasty.
Yes, Sugar is gone and a new beginning is at hand for
Genesis. A beginning that promises to be far more
violent than anything seen from this young lady so
Watch for the Sugar/Genesis name change and profile
changes soon on the G.L.O.R.Y. site. Until then...
==> Erotica D'Vine Injury Update.
Erotica D'Vine had been out of action for much of
September after receiving an injury during a nasty
eight man tag-team match that took place at APW's
100th show event.
The match pitted Erotica's team of Danny Ray,
Scott McComas, Punchy McGee, and Devon Cruise against
the team of Kid Kash, Ricky Morton, Chris Hamrick, and
Erotica D'Vine was injured when she held onto Miller
from the ring apron as she awaited Ray to nail him
with a forearm. D'Vine, unfortunately, lost her grip
on Miller and her teammate smashed Erotica instead!
Amid the cheers of the 300 fans who enjoyed seeing the
blonde vixen taking the rough shot, Ms. D'Vine hit the
floor hard and received a neck injury.
Diagnosed with what doctors told her was a "stinger",
Erotica was told to remain away from wrestling rings
for at least three weeks.
We're happy to report that Erotica has gotten through
the three weeks and is back to normal. She tells us
that she's looking forward to an October full of
action. To see more of Erotica D'Vine...
==> PGWA Group Starts On Yahoo!
A new Yahoo! Group devoted to the ladies who wrestle
for the PGWA has been formed and it's taking-off
quickly. Only a month in existence, the group has
already logged over 100 members.
The group, moderated by wrestling insider Shiai Mata,
reports on the latest news and rumors regarding the
PGWA women, the PGWA organization, and other ladies
involved in the wrestling business. Intelligent
discussions, polls, debates and great features
highlight the group...a "must-join" for any serious
fan of the grappling ladies.

==> NECW Looking For Female Talent.
Attention all G.L.O.R.Y. Girls in the New England
Sheldon Goldberg, owner and promoter of New England
Championship Wrestling, has contacted G.L.O.R.Y. to
say that he is looking for femal talent to add to his

3) G.L.O.R.Y. Rumors
==> Alexis Laree Heading To PGWA?
Rumors abound that Alexis Laree has her sights set on
the championship of the PGWA. The group, which is
called "home" by many of the toughest ladies of the
sport, features Leilani Kai, Lexie Fyfe, Pippa L'Vinn,
Diane Von Hoffman and Mia Martinez.
Some think "The Goddess Of Wrestling" is biting-off
more than she can chew. The feeling of many is that
Laree is certainly a talented young lady...but her
chances of beating the likes of Kai and Von Hoffman
are remote. The experience factor, insiders contend,
is just too much to overcome.
Others say that there may be some resentment among the
many veterans of PGWA also. After all, they've put
years into their careers. The ladies who have been
toiling away at this sport for some time might feel as
though Laree...a relative "rookie" to the ring...is
trying to accomplish too much, too soon. In other
words, some feel as though Ms. Laree has not yet fully
"paid her dues". Or so the thinking goes among some.
Still others have whispered that Alexis Laree's
meteoric rise has sparked some plain, old-fashioned
jealousy. Although no one will say it out loud, some
apparently are waiting for the opportunity to get
the beautiful Ms. Laree into the ring just to work her
over and teach her that the road to the top in this
business is a long and hard one.
A case in point is the working-over that Lexie Fyfe
gave to Laree in a recent Florida match...one that we
showed you this past weekend in G.L.O.R.Y.'s Picture
Of The Day. Even a cursory look at those pictures will
show that Fyfe was not so much looking for the win as
much as she was looking to dish out some punishment to
the brunette grappler.
Unfortunately for Fyfe, she apparently was more
interested is working over Alexis than she was in
simply gaining the win. Passing up a few opportunities
to pin the brunette challenger so that she could
instead dish-out further abuse, Lexie was surprised in
the end as Laree was able to pull out the upset win.
The established ladies in this sport are certainly not
going to stand aside and give an "easy pass" to
someone who they feel wants to jump past them on the
ladder to the top.
If Alexis Laree does have her mind set on traveling to
PGWA-Land, she had better be prepared for ring action
the likes of which she has yet to see in her career.
==> Awesome Anne And Charisma Friction Continues.
We hear from across the ocean that the UK's Awesome
Anne and daughter Charisma continue to have "issues".
Those of you who followed the grudge match between
these two recently on G.L.O.R.Y.'s Picture Of The Day
know that it was a tough and nasty fight.
Anne was unsuccessful at trying to pry a submission
out of the spunky Charisma, although she finally
pinned the girl after a particularly brutal battle.
Not getting that submission has been a thorn in the
veteran grappler's side.
Charisma, in the meantime, has let it be known that
her mother went way over the line in their match.
The youngster has told others that she felt her mother
wouldn't have beaten her at all if it weren't for some
questionable tactics. An eye rake, hairpulls and
vicious slams onto a rather thin mat certainly qualify
as questionable tactics to some...if not outright
rulebreaking to others.
Word is that Charisma is looking for a rematch...a
rematch to be held in a ring with a referee present.
Anne is supposedly resistant to the proposal and she's
told acquaintances that there's no need for a ring or
ref...she's happy to take on Charisma anytime,
This family feud is far from settled...
==> Candi And Allison Danger Working Together?
File this one under "HARD TO BELIEVE"...but word is
that two of the most mortal enemies in the wrestling
business today, "High Profile" Candi and Allison
Danger, have hooked-up to form an alliance to take
over the Premier Wrestling Federation (PWF).
In a recent tag match, Allison apparently turned on
her tag team partner and helped Candi and Dylan Night
to win the match. Fans in attendance were, to say the
They couldn't believe that fan favorite Allison would
form an alliance with her blonde nemesis. It was
We don't know what's going on for sure. There is just
too much "back room" wheeling, dealing and negotiating
to know what's fact and what's fiction. But we have
heard that these two ladies are FAR from allies.
Sources close to PWF tell us that locker room
personnel have spent more time pulling Candi and
Allison apart from potential fight situations than any
kind of planning or organizing which you would expect
from a newly formed alliance.
Can Candi and Allison Danger actually coexist on the
same team? The jury is still out on this one. We think
the fireworks have just begun.

4) LATE FLASH: Laree/Fyfe Battle For PGWA Gold!
We just received word that Alexis Laree and Lexie Fyfe
did meet recently for PGWA Gold in a recent match in
Winston-Salem, NC. (Earlier in this issue we reported
that Ms. Laree was, in fact, eyeing the PGWA
Here's a report of the match from PGWA's Shiai Mata...
"The championship match took place on Thursday night
in Winston Salem, North Carolina under the auspices of
the Professional Girl Wrestling Association.
This was more than just another title defense for
Lexie, however. This was a bona fide "Grudge Match"
between these two! Their rivalry was sparked several
weeks ago, when both Fyfe and Laree faced one another
for the newly-created Ladies Championship in the
Florida Championship Wrestling promotion. In what can
only be considered an upset, Alexis beat the Foxy Lady
for that belt (although Lexie is scarcely willing to
credit her opponent's skill in that victory, insisting
instead that it was bad officiating which cost her the
Ever since that fateful night, Lexie has been anxious
to get Alexis back in the ring again, intent on
proving, beyond a shadow of a doubt, who the better
wrestler is! And Laree has been just as eager to
fight the Foxy Lady again. After having beaten her for
the FCW belt, Laree was convinced that she can now take
down Fyfe for the PGWA crown as well!
Special Events was able to bring these two champion
athletes together for a "Grudge Match." Referee John
Horton was the official in charge, and the first thing
he did was to present Lexie with a contract that put
the PGWA belt on the line. She signed it with no
hesitation at all.
Alexis was supremely confident before the match. She
figured that she had Lexie's number now, and that this
Thursday night in North Carolina was going to be a
repeat of that night in Florida, with a brand new
title belt to wrap around her waist!
The two wasted no time in getting down to business,
and that was to make the other submit or be pinned.
It's difficult to adequately explain all of the
non-stop action, except to say that it was brutal for
both wrestlers! In the opening minutes of the match,
Alexis demonstrated why she is one of the most
exciting young stars in the sport today...and one of
the smartest! She had definitely done her homework,
and she put together an arsenal of moves that
frequently had Lexie in serious trouble! As the match
wore on, however, Fyfe was able to put her veteran
experience to work, and she began to figure out how to
counter many of Laree's moves. Still, Alexis was far
from finished, and this match blazed away with the
advantage seesawing back and forth!
In the end, Lexie managed to summon up the strength to
execute a vicious Bulldog, which left Laree dazed on
the mat and helpless to prevent the pin. Referee
Horton presented Lexie with her PGWA belt, and then he
had to assist Laree...who was suffering from a
possible shoulder injury...from the ring."
