From Jim Ross

Women's Wrestling: "We get lots of emails from fans of women's wrestling. I hate to break the news to you die hards of this specific genre but unless the decision makers change their philosophy, and my money is on them not doing so, women's wrestling is essentially going to remain a supplement to the overall product that will remain positioned to appease to the male demo by providing sex appeal. Don't kill the messenger on this one but one can see this play out each week on TV. Yes, there are some very athletic women in wrestling, and, yes, there are some very lovely and hard working, dedicated ladies in wrestling, but the days of these ladies athletic abilities being fully utilized don't see to me to be eminent. Provocative entrances and ring attire along with suggestive language seem to indicate that the dye has been cast and the women in today's wrestling world know their role and most seem to be happy to have the work and to be getting TV exposure. Perhaps the athletic side of these women will become somewhat more of a focus."


No, I am not mad I am motivated!


Mr.Ross is so right and I think we as wrestling fans want better and need to make the collective decision to make it better. That is why promotions like SHIMMER exist…to give the girls a fighting chance to do what they love.

SHIMMER and 10 other matches!

What a weekend!!!

First I must say their is no other feeling in the world like waking up in your own bed. If only Project Runway didn’t keep me up till 11 I would have gone straight to bed as soon as I got back from the gym. I knew my sleep was going to be great and wish I had more time in bed (It’s not possible to stay in bed past 7:30…cat issues) but nonetheless wonderful sleep and looking forward to tonight.


My work week started early Saturday with flying to Chicago for Shimmer. Meeting up with all the ladies and office at the hotel and getting my room situated. Then off to Starbucks!!!!! First Starbucks of the day….oh so good. Then to the building, I think the locker room was about 34 girls deep so after securing a spot and saying hello to everyone is was time to get ready for the days events.


I wish I could share some details with you or tell you what matches I was able to watch but It is all a little blurry…I'm sure if I concentrate really hard a few highlights would pop out at me but I’ll just continue and if any of you have specific questions you can post them and I'll rack my brain for you.


I know from what I did see over the first day I really enjoyed…These tapings seemed to have a very cool balance of matches with the addition on the Japanese talent.


After the show we stopped by 39ten to say hi and chat a little then off to grab a quick bite of food and sleep. Me doing neither made for a very long night. I was up at 6am doing laundry and thought I could go online for a minute but was accosted by a desperate man who needed my help and computer savvy to help catch his girlfriends lover. I entertained him for what turned out to be 45 minutes!!!! Despite the character I play in the ring I am a nice girl and felt bad for this guy. I am actually happy I was little help because he then told me he was a black belt in taekwondo and showed me a few cool takedowns. Who knows what he would have done if he found the cheater…So not a complete waste of my time.

Then back to the room to get ready for the days events. Once ready we were off again and with another stop at Starbucks I was feeling great! Same as the day before little blurry but very fun. I was overall pleased with all my matches ( until I see them) and thought once again what I saw of the rest of the show was great.


I can’t remember any other set of tapings having so many matches I was interested in and excited to see. I can’t wait for the DVD’s to come out!!!


After another full day of wrestling it was back to 39ten. The highlight was my amazing steak salad and getting to hang out with Jon ( No H just like Sara). Also being informed that I am no good on commentary which I refuse to believe! 


Back at the hotel for another night of not sleeping. Monday morning myself along with some Canadians and Australians headed to Tampa for Slammin ladies. We were all walking zombies but I needed to go to the gym. Despite my   lack of sleep I was able to have a great leg workout and hyped myself to do cardio. If anyone wants to be motivated go to a gym in Florida….Almost everyone was in amazing shape!


Then my first real sleep came and man was it good.


The next day back to the gym to work with a Personal Trainer and 8 other female wrestlers! This was awesome! We lifted tires, did 32 consecutive burpees (that's a lot), lunged, squatted, sprinted, jumped rope and had an amazing workout..I wish Tony the trainer lived by me.


Back at the slam shack it was wrestling all day. I had 5 matches one being 30 minutes..despite not a lot of sleep, a killer work out and having a cold I felt the best I have ever felt after a SHIMMER weekend. I was pumped to do it all again the next day.


Day started with Tony training again this time only 4 of us so he really pushed us. Again it was amazing. He busted out the sledgehammer and tire again and this time also had hi Jeep Cherokee for us to push. I was so excited to push this truck I cant even tell you…..30 seconds in I realized it was not as fun as I thought. I stuck it out and pushed that darn thing for 2 minutes! Then more ridiculously awesome exercises and 45 min later we were done. I was really hoping we would flip the tire  solo today (the day before we did it in pairs)   so I asked and he let me do 20…how sweet of him right?


Then another 5 matches and a trip to Mimi’s cafe….for those who don’t know..its two thumbs up!


Thursday morning it was back home to Philly and everything was smooth as silk..Surprising I know. My bag was out with little wait and the car park shuttle was speedy..I was just waiting for something to go wrong and it never did.


Back home needless to say my cat was ecstatic to see me but I needed to head out again to my favorite store..the grocery store. I felt so bad leaving him again even though I knew I would be back soon I couldn't make him understand. He cried like a baby…but all was well once I returned.


A quick trip to the gym and I was in for the night. I decided to catch up on Celebrity Apprentice and watched part 1 of the Project Runway season finale…well to be honest I slept through most of Project Runway but I feel caught up anyways.


Then bed and now you are all caught up with me!


One last thing before I go….NEW STRIDE…SHIFT= WOW you must try it!!!!

I head to Chicago to SHIMMER it up. Today is it's own day though that I must get through. I have a to-do list half a page long but probably will not have the time in the next week to update you so her is my hello.

This week was pretty uneventful I did my usual gym, eating and TV watching. The weather has been beautiful so I was able to do cardio outside and loved it! I was not done with winter but how can I complain about 70 degrees in April!!!!

No new recipes to inform you about but I did mess up my first batch of muffins. I was so sad…I mastered my coffee chocolate muffin with peanut butter center but i took my sweet time putting together my last batch and the peanut butter spread out before I could fill the rest of the cup so the bottom did not cook. Of course I thought they would be ok so I took a huge bite and got goopy-not good-un cooked-mess in my mouth. BLAH.

Noting new on the tube either..last night was pretty brutal until Project Runway came on but I guess that is a good thing. I thought of cutting back on my TV intake but I like the noise so I just stopped paying close attention. I think it is working out well..except for LOST..I pay close attention to that show and still don’t get it. It reminds me just how bad my memory is….

Oh and of course I forgot the most exciting thing that happened this week…my new shirts! I have wanted to do black on black shirts for the longest time because I thought it would be cool but have been scared incase they didn’t work. I took a chance and LOVE the way it turned out! Yes, I will have them at SHIMMER and the following week at JAPW.


I guess I should get started on my to-do’s. Hope to see some of you this weekend and for the rest of you enjoy the weekend weather!!!

Wake up in the morning feeling like

P. Diddy ???? No, not really but I am curious how he feel mid afternoon.


This week is starting off strong with a new workout!!! HURRAY!!! That should be fun and exciting but I guess not as fun and exciting as my weeks end. Yes that's right its time to SHIMMER! I am so looking forward to seeing all the girls and getting a little break of sorts from my home. I think I love my home too much sometimes…like I don’t want to leave because I like it so much. I guess that is a topic for another time.


Back to SHIMMER, I think this set of tapings has the most interesting match possibilities of all. I might just be a huge Joshi fan and can’t wait to see who faces them and how they measure up. I hope it’s me (fingers crossed). I don’t know much about the talent coming so I am really excited to watch the matches they put on…should be good stuff.


I am all kinds of excited to go grocery shopping after finishing up this blog. I decided besides my home my favorite place to be is the grocery store. My mom thinks I’m obsessed but at least it is a healthy obsession. I am planning on picking up all my travel food today so that might be adding to my excitement slightly.


In other exciting news Kelly comes back today!!! I hope Regis does not take a week off now…I need them together filling me in on the happenings of the world. The View and Wendy better be back this week too….I feel very out of touch with my current gossip and hot topics.


Last exciting update…New shirts should be coming in this week!!!!! And the crowd go wild!!! HURRAYYY, YIPPY, WHHOOO! I will try to get them up online ASAP and will have them with me this weekend. Hope to see some of you there!!!

HAPPY day to late Easter to you all!
