I have been so unbelievable busy lately, I haven't been able to get a new blog entry up! But I have been twittering, and my webmaster has been collecting my tweets and blogging for Doom Maidens in general. I am going to share some of his work regarding my London trip:
Our webmaster writes:
As some of you know, VeVe is currently in London!
She just arrived on Friday and she will be staying until Tuesday.
She's participating in a tournament at Monica's and shooting videos for Mixed Wrestling Zone. I will forward some of her latest twitter updates:
3 pm EST: "In London. Had first tournament video match against Anita of Hungary. Nearly smothered her in her hair, but she got revenge with headlocks!"
Apparently that was VeVe's first match and first victory so far. We eagerly await further news.
VeVe writes in to respond:
Thanks for passing that on! I'm just gearing up for second day of fighting and first day of the official event with live audience. That should make for a much more intense day than yesterday.
I'm heading down to the hotel breakfast for a good meal because I think once we get started today, all I'm going to get is those awesome British digestive biscuits to fuel me through at least three tough matches.
Supposedly, I'm in the last fight -- the "main event" -- of this tournament. Very flattering! This was supposed to be match with Kim, but she wasn't able to make it at the last minute due to plane trouble. So now my main event fight will be with Jenny of Manchester. I saw her roll yesterday, and she's got a nice, well-rounded game. And a size advantage over me -- of course!
More updates after the fights, if only my computer battery and the sketchy hotel internet connection hold out!
Here's more word from VeVe about her matches at Monica's tournament in London. We've also been twittering about it on the Doom Maidens Twitter.
Sept 26: VeVe says: "...the filming today was good. I fought Jenny of Manchester, which was a terrific fight and I believe everyone's favorite. We ended up with a draw, though... And I fought Anita again after she was very tired and slaughtered her... Total sporty f v. f..."
Here's a blurb from Monica's site:
"26 September is looking great, with a fantastic line-up of wrestling talent. The incredible NY grappler Vetiver Lane from the Doom Maidens has just confirmed, and the legendary Robin from LA is raising sponsorship for what might be her last competitive match! It's to be with our very own Lina, and is set to be a classic! The beautiful Mutiny from Montreal has confirmed, along with new girl Kim who's one of the brightest new wrestling talents. Then there's awesome all-round fighter Jenny Sjdin: pro wrestler, bjj grappler, submission wrestler “ watch out! Regrettably, Reni is unable to come but is replaced by ANITA, who's flying over with Zsuzsa, two more wrestling sensations from Hungary! Don't miss out on this awesome Event; it will be a long time before this much talent is assembled again. Call Monica on 0788 187 2505 or email MWC now! "
Looks like there's some good stuff going on in London this weekend!
