Even More British Lady Wrestlers

   Since I seem to be creatively bankrupt at the moment and since I had some pics left over from teh alst post, how about I drop another load of UK grappling gals on you all?

  Some of these may have already appeared on Sabreblade's blog:

british lady wrestlers.
  Nicky Monroe gets her arms stretched by Tina Starr. 
I have a soft spot for "Naughty Nicky" because she was the first lady wrestler I ever got to see in action.
Nicky was also adept at switching between Face and Heel depending on the audience.
Tina Starr was always a face and with her slim, athletic figure might have done well in the USA. 
I say "Might" because for some reason British girls don't seem to have done well over the Atlantic-
 although some got to work in Japan, Europe and Nigeria. 

british lady wrestlers
Kathy "Busty" Keegan twists her prone opponent's arm while Nicky Monroe has a go at refereeing. 
I remember that TV:Am once had Mitzi Mueller and Busty Keegan (in leotards) on to demonstrate some moves. 
Sadly neither of them kicked the shit out of Roland Rat although Brian Glover came close to 
gettting a punch in the gob when he decided to have some fun at Mitzi's expense. The look on her face... 

I wonder why they used to bill Kathy as "Busty Keegan"? british women wretlers
Oh. Right. I get it now.
That's Mitzi Mueller looking ferocious as she tries to squeeze Busty's guts out of her nose.   

 Mitzi Mueller was easily the biggest name in British women's wrestling all through the 1970s & 1980s
I think that's Lolita Loren really wanting to be somewhere else right now. 
Meanwhile the referee is politely explaining that whatever she's planning is probably illegal. 
I do love the grandad in the front row looking at the camera as if to say "This beats darts, hey?"

Actually let's take a moment to talk about the guys in the front row.  With one possible exception they are all blokes, 
not the kids and grannies that became associated with UK wrestling towards the end of the World of Sport days. 
 I wonder why that happened and how I can blame Big Daddy for it? 

UK women wrestling
Mitzi didn't always have it her own way. At the moment her immediate future looks 
unpleasant courtesy of  the she-colossus that was Hellcat Haggerty. 
Hmm. Naughty Nicky...Mitzi Mueller..Klondyke Kate..Hellcat Haggerty..
British women wrestlers seem inordinately fond of alliterative names. 

British ladies wrestling
Angel McManus (No relation to Mick) throttles Klondyke Kate.
By this point Kate would have spent the entire bout battering Angel and winding up the crowd 
so when the babyface snapped and openend a can of woopass I guarantee the punters would have gone utterly nuts.  
Technically breaking the rules but *shrugs* anybody that bothered? 

I think the villain in white is the UK version of Lady Satan. (Sue Brittain under a mask IIRC)
No idea who the girl in blue is. It is entirely possible this caused her to have some doubts about her career in wrestling. 

British wrestlers could be quite hard on newcomers. William Regal spent the early part of his career 
getting battered by the old guard who wanted to establish their place in the pecking order. 
If you survived that, they might start respecting you. 
  I doubt the UK girls were much different. 

UK Wrestling women
  "Leather" Lena makes a young Paula Valdez howl.  
I'm so used to seeing the late, great Princess Paula as this arrogant heel that I was
astonished to discover that she spent the early part of her career as a babyface. 
Going by the beerbottles on display, this may very well have been taking part in a Working Man's Club.
Have a few beers with the missus, have a game of darts with your mates, watch two girls try to maim each other then finish with the Meat Raffle!
Bygone days indeed. 

Lena with a scary face and a scarier haircut tries to rip her opponent's head off.
Even the ref looks horrified.

Lena Blair is now an artist and by all accounts quite a good one.  

That's all folks.
