VeVe's Report from the Showcase

Reposted: Report from VeVe Lane. Composed Jan 24, 2010.
So it has been an awesomely full and wonderful weekend. The first ever NYC Wrestling Showcase went better than I could ever have hoped.

The turnout was incredible -- we had about 60 people in the room at one point, which with 150 sq. ft. of mat laid down was pretty much capacity. Thirteen guys came as part of a bachelor party and threw the groom-to-be on the mat with Amazon Annie. One fellow brought an entire gang of his women friends, who got very invested in the battles of the ladies on the mat.

The audience energy really helped rev up the fighters; it was great to hear the cheering, applause, and the coaching in -- though some of the "coaches'" advice was a little crazy ;) The action in the fights was excellent. There was A LOT of competitive grappling, and with the expection of Veronica and Juliette's grudge match the fights were all very sporting, fun, and good-spirited. But no less intense for that!

The whole thing ran very smoothly and to schedule -- despite Veronica Vicious's breezing in just 10 minutes before her first match, executing a very suspensefully and fashionably late entrance. But that's just classic Vicious. A great experience and total inspiration to do more showcases like this in the future (though next month back to the regular Grapple Den party format.)

So Saturday I had two matches of my own -- my rematch against Jenny Sjodin and a shortie against Brian, an excellently skilled freestyle wrestler friend of mine. Jenny is just as good as I remember her being from London -- it was fantastic to see her again, and to fight her, of course! The two of us are a dead even match up in skill. And in the match with Brian -- he gave me some serious trouble, but I was thrilled to get a knee bar submission on him. I never get those!

Probably my favorite match to watch was Annie and Brian's scissors wrestling fight. Brian's a smaller guy, but strong and a bit of a takedown artist, so it was something to see him lift Annie (4" taller and 50 lbs. heavier) and take her to the ground. But on the ground her size mattered, and she was able to smother and grapevine him into submission. Quite a lot of non-scissors action for a scissors match, actually.

And today we were back at it, shooting four more (extremely competitive) videos back-to-back: Jenny vs. Kim II, a wrestling-booted commission match for Southern Belles Wrestling, which had to be decided in overtime; Me vs. Ben, a bout wherin I braved the onslaught of a rampaging freestyler who actually slammed me; Kim vs. Jay, a match-up between two of my best former opponents featuring some intense flexibility on Kim's part; and Me vs. Jenny III, an epic, 40-minute battle half in gi and half in no-gi also featuring my record-setting smallest thong ever.

We wrapped up both days of wrestling with relaxation and fine dining at a couple of excellent restaurants. And that's really been a highlight of this weekend -- the chance to see and hangout with Jenny and Kim while they're visiting from Europe, to bring together so many great people from the New York scene, to introduce and connect everyone to everyone, to trade stories and make plans for future travel, events, and training, and to realize just what awesome people I tend to know and work with.

And now there is SO much video editing to do, but my videographer is a beast of efficiency and the compilation DVD of Saturday's fights will be available at the Doom Maidens Video Store in no time with downloadable versions of the individual matches to be released sequentially soon after...

VeVe Lane comments on Jenny Sjodin vs. Kim of Italy:
"Jenny and Kim, two of my favorite and toughest opponents, one hailing from Sweden, the other from Italy, crossed the Atlantic to finally be united in battle right here in NYC.


Having faced both these ladies before myself, I can vouch that they are the real deal -- highly skilled grapplers, full of competitor's spirit and 100% fight. Going in, I couldn't begin to predict the winner, and the ladies didn't disappoint. It was a hard-fought, VERY close match..."

Jenny Sjodin: 5'8" and 143 lbs
Kim of Italy: 5'8" and 132 lbs

This video is available as a download or DVD. See our store page for details: http://www.doommaidens.com/store/jennyvskim/

Lethal Lady in Leopard print!

Well, well, well.

I think I've done pretty well for myself this last wrestling showcase, I took two men down with my brutal cunning, feminine agility and well, mostly with the strength of my thighs!
Except for the typical minor grappling bruises I came out fairly scotch free! With a five to zip victory over an incredibly well-formed young man, who for his life couldn't resist (ha!) my scissor hold, nor my grape vine!

Now, Amazon Annie sets her eyes on the next battle, the mean streets of Providence, R. I. will there be anyone tough enough to stand up to this 6 foot tall beauty?

I daresay, they have some work to do before they meet these thighs of thunder!

Till next time!

Shaping up, and suiting up for a Super Fight this Saturday

Hello All! This is Amazon Annie!

Well, new year, new resolve to be better than before! I have been training with the illustrious VeVe Lane in mostly scissor submission, but have also discovered an exceptional talent, unbeknown to even myself!

This Sunday after yet another rigorous training session, I was able to pose in a photo with both Veve and my videographer held on my hip. So, collectively, I was able to lift and sustain over 300 lbs without shedding a tear or breaking a sweat and still offering my sweet starlet smile!

Ha!

So, this being said, I think that I will be able to do some serious damage this Saturday in my highly competitive scissor match. Maybe after my match I will earn the title "Squeeze Queen" or "Thighs of thunder"!

Only time will tell, until then, let the sun shine brightest on the heart of a true warrior!

Veronica Vicious Retires from Session Wrestling on March 1, 2010

Forwarded for Ms. Veronica Vicious, the Queen of the Sultry Smackdown:

----------------------------------------------
Greetings friends, fans, and wrestling partners,

I put everyone on notice last spring that my retirement was imminent. I've been sessioning less since then, but did one last Europe tour and made some final videos.

Now I've decided that my matches next Saturday (on January 23, NYC Wrestling Showcase) will be my last public matches, and that I will retire from sessions on March 1.

Over the past 4 years, I have had a great adventure in session wrestling. As a founding wrestler in Doom Maidens, I have enjoyed working with (and sparring with!) Veve Lane, Amazon Annie, Scarlet Menace, Bella Vixen, and many others. I've enjoyed working with Doom Maidens as a business run by session wrestlers for session wrestlers, a group of intelligent, savvy, and playful women who enjoy athleticism and also enjoy being in charge. In comparison to other organizations that exploit the women who wrestle for them, the wrestlers of Doom Maidens are large and in charge- serious athletes and talented smart women!
I've met many wonderful clients who have opened up to me about aspects of domination that intrigue them, and I have been honored with this intimacy. I have made many friends and had many adventures. And now I'm ready to move on to the next adventure.

I am retiring to focus on other projects and other career opportunities. Here's a hint: I'm working on my first book!

I will be doing sessions until March 1, in New York City only. Please don't email me about whether I will be visiting Geneva or Arizona before then- I'm not. This is your last chance to session with me before I move on and pass on the crown!

I hope to see many of you and say goodbye on January 23, where I'll have intense matches against both a male opponent (Tyrannosaurus Lex, a former state champion in PA) and a female opponent (Miss Juliette, who has been taunting me on youtube- oh the smack down she will get!).

Thanks for the memories all!
Veronica Vicious, signing off

Veronica Vicious' Last Public Appearance: Jan 23 NYC

Greetings Wrestling Fans,

Veronica Vicious has just let me know that January's NYC Wrestling Showcase will be her final public appearance before her retirement from the public session wrestling scene.

Ms. Vicious had originally announced her intention to retire in 2009 due to an amazingly busy schedule outside of wrestling, but because of her love of mixed wrestling, she held on and made things work. However, for 2010, life and duty call; Veronica Vicious does indeed plan to retire from the public mixed wrestling scene after her January 23 appearance at the Showcase.

However, she has mentioned that she plans to continue making custom videos and occasional general videos for Doom Maidens, when her schedule permits.

So, if you want to come on down and wish Veronica well on January 23, by all means, join us in NYC's East Village for the Wrestling Showcase! Details here: http://www.grappleden.com/party
