For Immediate Release
PGWA TITLE MATCH SCHEDULED FOR FEBRUARY 15
The Professional Girl Wrestling Association is pleased to announce a title match for the PGWA Championship, to be held in Nashville, Tennessee on Friday, February 15.
PGWA Champion Nikki Roxx will defend her title against Portia Perez. Hailing from Canada, Perez recently scored victories in two consecutive matches against Roxx in other independent organizations, and on the basis of those wins, has demanded a third match, with the PGWA belt on the line.
Perez was already booked to appear for the United States Wrestling Organization in Nashville on the 15th, but with no opponent scheduled. Owing to the past working relationship between the PGWA and the USWO, it was quickly determined that Roxx would be booked to face Perez, and that PGWA Commissioner Penny Banner would sanction the bout as a title match.
This championship match has been dubbed the “St. Valentine’s Melee!”
Many fans know that Nikki Roxx has achieved tremendous success and exposure lately in TNA, where she wrestles as “Roxxie Laveaux”. She won the PGWA title in the spring of 2005, having traveled to Manchester, England to challenge Pippa L’Vinn for the belt. In the three years since, Roxx has defended her crown against a number of top contenders, including MsChif and Christie Ricci…both former NWA Women’s World Champions. This will be a rare opportunity for Nashville fans to again see her live in action.
Portia Perez is fast emerging as an important figure in the sport, and has dazzled audiences across Canada, the United States and Mexico, as well as in several European nations. Her recent victories over Nikki only underscore her worthiness as a contender for the belt.
This will be the first time since 2006 that the PGWA has held a match at the Stadium Inn in Nashville. The PGWA’s relationship with the USWO and promoter Tony Falk goes back several years before that, when the promotion successfully hosted a great many PGWA matches and even entire cards at its facilities. The PGWA has also had an excellent working arrangement with another Nashville-area promotion, Southern All-Star Wrestling, and looks forward to continuing to work with both SAW and the USWO to bring quality women’s pro wrestling to the Volunteer State. Certainly, Nashville pro wrestling fans are blessed to have these two outstanding promotions in their region, and they have responded by giving both organizations large turnouts at their weekly cards.
The Stadium Inn is located at 10 Interstate Dr. in Nashville. Belltime is 8:00 PM, and tickets are only $10.00.
