ALL-FEMALE PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING TOURNAMENT TO TAKE PLACE IN CALIFORNIA ON OCTOBER 29 & 30
WINNER TO BE DETERMINED IN A STEEL CAGE MATCH!
San Francisco, CA -- October 10, 2004: The Professional Girl Wrestling Association (PGWA) has teamed up with All Pro Wrestling (APW) to bring fans an action-packed weekend of all-female wrestling on October 29th and October 30th in Hayward, California.
CHICK FIGHT will feature 8 of the top female competitors from around the world. The finals of the CHICK FIGHT tournament will take place in a 18 foot high steel cage match on October 30th as part of APW's annual "Halloween Hell" show.
Although the PGWA, based in North Carolina, had sponsored several women's pro matches in California in years past, this card will be the organization's very first full-fledged live event in the Golden State. The PGWA's Commissioner, former World Champion Penny Banner, says that she hopes this will be the league's first of many visits to the West Coast. The PGWA has hosted a number of live cards in the Eastern and Central parts of the United States since 1993.
In announcing the event, APW Commissioner Gabriel Ramirez said that the APW fans have always been supportive of the women, and he wanted to reward their support by bringing in some outstanding talent to compete with such All Pro Wrestling favorites as "Cheerleader" Melissa and Tiffany. APW brought the wrestling world "King of Indies" in 2001, the finest 16 man tournament to date, that catapulted many wrestlers in different directions around the world, and now APW brings you the first 8 Woman Tournament in California. Working with the PGWA was the obvious answer in making such an event a success.
This tournament will be a first-of-it's-kind in Northern California and Black Pants, Inc. will be providing full production with the show available on DVD, VHS and online at LadySports.com. The video for this historic event will be available through the PGWA's website at www.LadySports.com.
More information on this historic event will be released as it is made available on the APW and PGWA websites.
The PGWA and APW were just informed that Miss Chevous was injured in an match last weekend, and have replaced her with another Canadian wrestler, Candice LeRae. No information was given about the nature of Miss Chevous's injury other than she would not be able to wrestle this weekend.
