News Flash: VeVe vs Ziggy Match on Video!

This match came to us a bit by surprise. VeVe went down to Florida two weekends ago, where she took on Ziggy in a 27 minute competitive match. We've now got that video all set as a DVD and a downloadable on DoomMaidens.com:

Competitive Female Wrestling

VeVe Lane says:
"Since I started wrestling, people in the scene have been telling me great things about Ziggy and suggesting that the two of us should have a match. So I was thrilled to finally get the chance to meet and mix it up with the lady herself. It was a bit nerve-wracking to face an opponent who's got years of experience on me and outranks me significantly, but in the end we both put on a great display of purely competitive, highly-skilled grappling, and we only amped up the intensity the longer we rolled!A very challenging match against a great opponent I definitely hope to face again!"

VeVe Lane: 5'4" and 125 lbs
Ziggy: 5'5" and 125 lbs

Match is two 8-minute rounds and one 11-minute round
Match running time: 27 min, approx

VeVe's february super blog! wrestling, travel, southern belles, grappling girls, amazons, Ziggy, and more!

February has been one busy month, exactly as I knew it would. And I've got two more weekends of travel coming up back-to-back starting with my flight to Atlanta this Friday. So from the eye of the storm, here's a report on what's been going on.

The month started off with a quick weekend in Providence, a few days of business as usual in NYC, and then a looong trek down to Florida. Amazon Annie's gotten very revved up to do more traveling lately, so she joined me on both trips. Providence was nice, but Florida was quite the epic.

To start with, we drove. Non-stop. Through a blizzard. And when I said Florida, I meant south Florida -- five extra hours after you first cross that Sunshine State border. And to cap it off, we had planned to have four drivers on this trip -- me, Annie, our videographer, and another friend -- but our videographer stayed home sick, so the rest of us took longer shifts. But then we arrived!

It was a good trip for sessions, but it was a great trip for videos! I got to have a match with Ziggy, something I was very excited about since I've heard so many fans speak so highly of her ever since I started wrestling. It definitely a pleasure to meet and fight her.

We were stuck using the hotel room as a studio, but with (quite a lot of) remodeling, we turned it into a pretty decent wrestling space. And Annie got to discover her filming talents. It was a terrific, very even match, and I'm especially proud of the third round where we amped up the intensity despite the fatigue! And best of all the video will be coming out on the Doom Maidens site tomorrow!

Then on a stop in Sarasota, I went it for a shoot with Grappling Girls. That one was really neat because my opponent brought his wife along, and she even participated in the video (heckling him from the sidelines, poor guy!) Very fun, and since I meet so many men who tell me their wives or girlfriends aren't into or don't understand wrestling, it always gives me warm fuzzies to meet a couple that enjoys it together. And, appropriately, this shoot was on Valentine's Day!

There was a little free time before we headed back north to meet up with some friends for a picnic at the beach. It was little chilly, but nothing could stop Annie from diving straight into the water. The rest of us (all grapplers) hung about for a bit discussing how sand is a horrible! surface for wrestling, until someone showed up with a volleyball, and we got sporty that way. Managed to get a little sunburned, and it says something about how starved for summer I am that I was happy about it!

Then the drive north. From headquarters back in the city, our videographer had managed to connect with Southern Belles Wrestling in NC and arrange a video stop for Annie and me along the way. Great way break up the trip and stretch not just the legs but everything! Annie and I did a match together, and then we each did a match with one of Southern Belles' regulars Tyler. Tyler was great to fight and to see in action. She's a very accomplished, athletic pro-style wrestler, very pretty, and has a totally savvy, with-it personality that made her great to work with.

It was quite interesting to see and feel how everyone's different styles inteacted in this set of matches. Annie and I paired up to give a classic submission grappling perfomance -- of course! I felt like my match with Tyler was a sub grappling meets pro-style concoction, and Tyler and Annie got fully into pro-style with A LOT of lifts and scissors. And then back on the road.

I spent most of this past week resting up after the big adventure but took a definite break for resting for Grapple Den's Rumble in the Jungle Party on Thursday. Annie masterminded and hosted this party in true Amazonian style -- she even hooked me up with a Poison Ivy costume of her design. I'm told there are some pretty terrific photos floating around that I must see. Grapple Den's going with a scheme where regular guests are going to present their own theme parties this spring. In March, Hanz Vanderkill and Clobberella present: Das Wrestlefest! I'm psyched and also incredibly amused.

And like I mentioned, looking forward it's going to be Atlanta this weekend. Then Columbus for the Arnolds Expo the next. Looking forward to a bit of wrestling reunion at the Arnolds with the Madtown Beatdown crew from Madison, and also very excited to finally be competing again!

More to report soon!

Well you won't believe it the beautiful, buxom Miss Sharon from Long Island is attending my party, just think, my party!

Well, I'm sure she would be more than willing to tell y'all her stories in person. And lucky you she will be in Person at this coming Grapple Den Party (This Thursday! Feb. 18th, at Tagine, Hell's Kitchen, for full details visit www.grappleden.com)

This will be one of her first wrestling events since a serious injury, but heck, this lady can still crush a sucker, and has been hitting the gym.

Veronica Vicious vs Miss Juliette Trailer

We put together a simple trailer for the Veronica vs Juliette match:

We'd originally had "Hot Blooded" as the soundtrack for this video, but I had to swap that out due to copyright stuff. The sound track on there isn't all that bad, but it isn't as sweetly specific, though.

Veronica Vicious vs Miss Juliette: Diva Grudge Match Video!

Hello Fans of Female Wrestling!

It's out! The video of the heated and hyped match between Veronica Vicious and Miss Juliette, from the Jan 23 NYC Wrestling Showcase:

Veronica Vicious vs Miss Juliette
Competitive Female Wrestling

The most hyped and highly anticipated match of the NYC Wrestling Showcase! Veronica Vicious and Miss Juliette, two trash talking divas, set their sights on each other and finally bring it to the mats for a physical face-off!

These ladies had never met prior to this match, but neither one liked the other's wrestling style.

Veronica Vicious: 5'4" and 135 lbs
Miss Juliette: 5'6" and 125 lbs

Bad blooded, high stakes, and competitive.

Match is three 5-minute rounds (15 min match)
Includes the "call out" trailers as well as the match video.

VeVe Lane says about this match:

In the weeks before their showcase match, Veronica Vicious and Miss Juliette put the rules of good sportswomanship aside to let the world know exactly what each lady thought of the other. Each of them talked a great game and promised a humiliating defeat to her opponent, but on the big day, only one could emerge the grappling queen. This match is bad-blooded, high-spirited, competitive, and ultimately decisive!

The video is available on DVD and as a download in our store: http://www.doommaidens.com/store/veronicajuliette/
