Well worth the look back in time to the year 2005 and a fast moving contest from the Playhouse Theater,Harlow in Essex where German born Nikita(Katie Lea Burchill)or possibly her birth name Katerina Waters took on another girl from the U.S. curcuit Simply Luscious

Yesterdays mention of Ron Farrar's Facebook pages inspired another fan to send me another photo posted by Ron.There is no indication of when this was taken but Akala Jan died in 2005 following a stroke aged 58 years.Sue herself died aged 78 in 2013.
The other wrestler pictured is Vickie Montrose of whom there is little recent info.

A friend of mine who is a regular on Facebook came up with a couple of interesting photo's posted by Ron Farrar husband and promoter of the late Sue Britain.The first is a shot from early in Sue's career in 1968,although it isn't possible to see all of the posters behind her you can pick out one or two names from the past,in the top poster of bouts at Corby Towm Football Club Sue is billed to take on the Lady Caroline.
The lower poster from The Civic Hall,Birmingham sees Mitzi Mueller billed as The Anglo Swiss Bombshell in against Jennie Muff who my friend tells me was trained at Shirley Crabtree's(Big Daddy)gym in Halifax,West Yorkshire.Now what became of her?
Have you ever wondered just how many champions there are in the world of wrestling?
Yet another one,this held by Little Bit,sometimes Megan Wellsapparently.Where do they get those names?
Her opponent raises the question who stole who's name?The Camille we know in Europe is based in France.

Try and work out when this bout took place if you can.The very young looking Saraya in against Steve Quintain from Canvey Island in Essex.
In one respect this is a throw back to the halcyon days of wrestling with a bout fought over five minute rounds to be decided by the best of three falls,submissions or a K.O.

Passing time as a habit of tricking the memory and this bout from 99 set a friend of mine thinking.Could this have taken place here in the U.K.in that year??
What raised the question you may ask?My friend clearly recalled the panic surrounding the AID's virus which had promoters ban the use blood capsules and the old trick with a razor blade as those much sought after ringside seats became difficult to sell and this from the mid eighties or possibly even earlier.

I have no idea where the craze started but like many countries around the globe we in the U.K.have to endure''Britain's got Talent''on our tv's,a prog where any deluded fruit cake who as sung in a karaoke bar is allowed to show their lack of talent.
The formula for the show as spread to places around the world and this is Ukraine's contribution.Whatever next???Will we have the third rate Elvis wrestle the failed ballet dancer in chocolate sauce???
I have heard from many fans over the last few years who like me have been baffled by the output of Catz Club UK.I was equally baffled when I was contacted over the weekend and told they were relaunching this month and were hiring girls to fight.
More so because I hadn't realised they had been away.As part of the relaunch they have issued the rematch between Jessica Jonesand Siran
If any fans can enlighten us on the latest news please do so.
