OWE UK First-Ever Women’s Champion Will Be Determined in a Gauntlet Match

Lana Austin, Little Miss Roxxy, Charli Evans, Ayesha RaymondSession Moth Martina, and Lizzy Styles will all compete in a 6-Women Gauntlet Match to determine who will be the first-ever OWE UK Women’s Champion at OWE UK’s inaugural Tag Team Tournament. The match will take place on Day One of the tournament, on September 18 in London. “The competitors are gearing up not just for a match, but a war. There can be only one OWE Women’s Champion and this one match will decide who goes down in the history books as the very first Champion,” promises the company.

Charli Evans is an Australian powerhouse wrestler who has wrestled across the UK for promotions like Pro Wrestling EVE, Wrestling Resurgence, Fight Club Pro and more. She has been in some absolute wars against Kanji, Millie Mackenzie and intergender matches against Chris Brookes and Rickey Shane Page. Her strength is one of her best weapons and it got her noticed in Sendai Girls Pro Wrestling in Japan where she is currently one-half of the tag team champions with Millie Mackenzie as the Medusa Complex.

Little Miss Roxxy describes herself as, at the same time, a Pole dancer, a podium dancer, a contortionist wannabe, and of course a pro-wrestler. To quote Calling Spots, “Little Miss Roxxy has been able to combine her NGW training with her natural athleticism and flexibility (as mentioned earlier Roxxy is a pole dance and Contortionist) to create her own unique style that is different to any other, for instance I have seen her twisted, tied up in knots and put into positions that I did not think were humanly possible.”

The current 2-time Tidal Championship Wrestling Women’s Champion and Main Event Wrestling Women’s Champion was trained at NGW Academy, of Ligero and Nathan Cruz, and Rampage Brown. For the last 4 years, the “Angel Of The North” has also worked in the UK for ICW, EVE, RISE, FutureShock, SWE, WCPW/Defiant, and 3CW, among many others. She also wrestled in France and Spain. She already squared off with some of the wrestlers of the OWE UK match, Charli Evans, Lizzy Styles, Lana Austin. Used to intergender wrestling, she also fought Chief Deputy Dunne of The Anti Fun Police, one of the 16 teams to compete in the Tag Team tournament.

Lana Austin has been a mainstay of the UK independent wrestling scene for the better part of six years since she debuted in a Triple Threat match at Brittania Wrestling Promotions that also featured Tegan Nox. Austin, from Manchester, is a three-time Women’s champion at the Mancunian promotion FutureShock Wrestling. She began her third reign after winning a Fatal Four-way with then-champion Molly Spartan as well as the Glaswegian Jayla Dark and the Northern Irish veteran Kasey Owens. For 6 years now, Lana Austin has worked for many UK promotions like EVE, Defiant, TNT, Kamikaze Pro, Southside Wrestling, PROGRESS, Fierce Females, OTT (she twice challenged for the OTT Women’s Championship, against both Session Moth Martina and Raven Creed), among many others.

The “Female Predator” Amazon Ayesha Raymond has been in the wrestling business for 10 years. She’s been working a lot in Japan for many companies, like Sendai Girls, World Wonder Ring Stardom, Wrestle-1 and SEAdLINNNG. She’s worked with Ring of Honor, World of Sports Wrestling, IPW:UK, EVE, GWF in Germany, ICW and WAW. The big and intimidating wrestler has an in-your-face, powerful style that has taken her across the globe. Outside of pro wrestling, she is a qualified personal trainer and has a performing arts qualification and modelling experience.

Lizzy Styles, with Lana Austin, had been staples of now-defunct Defiant Wrestling Women’s Division. “The Princess of Wrestling” has been in the business for 6 years. The former Defiant and Tidal Championship Wrestling Women’s Champion has been working for TNT Extreme Wrestling, Defiant, Tidal, Target, RISE, PCW and many more promotions all over the UK. She also worked for World Wonder Ring Stardom in Japan. Among her opponents, we can find some of the finest UK female wrestlers like Nixon Newell, Xia Brookside, Toni Storm, Saraya Knight, Little Miss Roxxy, Rhio, Bea Priestley or Chardonnay. She teamed up with Ligero and CJ Banks in mixed tag matches.

Martina is known for her outlandish character, obsession with Darude Sandstorm and her bags of cans at shows. She is also an incredibly gifted in-ring competitor and has trained with Lance Storm. She is a total wildcard in-ring and a clear charismatic force. Fans will know of Martina from her time nearly anywhere. She’s wrestled in Ireland, the USA, the UK and Japan. In Japan, she is a member of Oedo Tai stable in STARDOM, as well as taking part in a UK debut show for Sendai Girls. She’s also been seen recently at an NXT UK try-out and is a staple of OTT in Ireland.
