Top 50 Women


The Wrestling Clothesline is proud to present the Second Annual Wrestling Clothesline's Top 50 Independent Women Wrestlers.

Due to the overwhelming success of last year's Wrestling Clothesline Top 50 Independent Women Wrestlers we have decided to do it again.

The Wrestling Clothesline, being an avid supporter of women indy wrestling, has decided to take the idea of ranking wrestlers in a slightly different

Starting today, we encourage you to email or post in the folder on our message board, your choices for best women wrestlers on the indy scene.

You may nominate as many women as you would like.

The voting will continue until November 10th.

At that point, from all the women who have been nominated, the Wrestling Clothesline Panel will narrow the list down to those we fell are the Top 50 Independent Women Wrestlers.

Narrowing down the list to 50 is not an wasy task, that's why we need you to nominate any women you think should be ranked. Without you, there is a chance that your favorite wrestler may be overlooked. We're only human. There are many women we have not seen in action and without you letting us know about them, it would be impossible to take them into consideration.

When making our final decisions we will use the following guidelines:

The list will be a reflection of who we feel are the 50 best women wrestlers on the indy scene at the present time.

The list is reflective, but not limited too, a wrestlers previous 12 month body of work.

The women in the list should be active WRESTLERS and should wrestle on a regualr basis. Women who primarily manage or valet will not be included.

Wrestlers we have seen work will get a higher rank than those who we have not seen.

Injuries will be factored into the decision making process. Poor booking will not.

The final list will be comprised of those women nominated (by mail in and message board votes) followed by our panel narrowing it down to our
selection of the top 50. The final rankings are just our opinions and are being done to help generate discussion and bring attention to women's

So post your nominations or email them in between now and November 10th!

Thank you for your help in making this a success!!

The Wrestling Clothesline is proud to present...

The Wrestling Clothesline's Top 50 Independent Women Wrestlers.

These final rankings are just our opinions and are being done to help generate discussion and bring attention to women's wrestling.



Tracy Brooks -
Height: 5' 4"
Weight: 127
Hair: Dark Brown
Eyes: Brown
Hometown: Toronto, Ontario (Canada)

Even though Tracy started training March 2000 and had her in-ring debut in January 2001, she first caught our eyes (our and we = members of the Clothesline Crew) when she competed in the WXW Women's Super 8 Tournament last year. Not only did Tracy go through numerous opponents to make it to the finals, but she actually made quite an impression as this stunning beauty could actually wrestle!!! Tracy, who trained at Squared Circle Training in Toronto, Ontario under head trainer Rob Fuego, not only came down from Canada to win the WXW Women's Super 8 but she has since gone on to make quite a name for herself in NWA TNA. Tracy teamed with David Young to make it all the way to the finals of the NWA TNA Tag Team Tournament to crown #1 contenders for the Tag Team Championship.

Tracy continues to wrestle for her home federation BCW as well as NWA TNA, MPW, and WXW (where we get the only opportunity to see her on a regular basis). Tracy has proven to be one of the most dominating women on the indy scene today and she is one of the sweetest women we have met. She proves time and time again that she is Not Just Another Pretty Face!

Titles Held: WXW Women's Super 8 Champion; AWF Heavyweight Champion.

Notice who lurks in the background?

Alexis Laree -
Height: 5' 4"
Weight: 125
Hair: Brunette
Eyes: Brown
Hometown: Richmond, Virginia (USA)

Alexis Laree made her debut as a professional wrestler in 1999 after completing her training with the Funkin' Dojo in 1998 (as well as a handful of training camps & dojos). We got our first "look" at Alexis when she wrestled in GLOOW several years ago. At first, we were impressed by her Legion Of Doom shoulderpads but she immediately made an impression by wrestling one hell of a match.

We have seen Alexis compete and continue to improve numerous times on shows with ECWA, ICW, CSWF, and throughout the US. Alexis is one of the women who seem to get booked on nearly every indy show throughout the United States, which is a true testament to her ability and drawing power. Most recently, Alexis has made quite an impact on NWA TNA as a member of Raven's flock. Alexis has proven why she is one of the most popular women on the indy scene.

Titles Held: SCW Diva Champion, CSWF Women's Champion, PWF Pro Wrestling Universal Women's Champion, ICW Junior Heavyweight Champion, DCW Women's Champion, Ultimate Championship Wrestling Women's Champion.



April Hunter -
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 150
Hair: Red
Eyes: Hazel
Hometown: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (USA)

April Hunter first became involved in wrestling as a WCW valet back in 1999. Soon after, April began training at Killer Kowalski's School. April, who has a body most would kill for, has proven why she is one of the most popular women on the indy scene today.

We first got to see April at an ECWA show in DE. Her presence is not one that is very forgettable. Not only did April impress us all with her incredible physique (translated, she's hot) but she could actually get in the ring and do moves! April continues to impress and improve with every match. She is able to have great matches with anyone, male or female. April competed in the WXW Women's Super 8 where she had several good matches. A match with April v Nikki Roxx at a JAP show earlier this year was easily the match of the night. April has worked for numerous promotions including NWA TNA, USA Pro, JCW, JAP, ECWA, ROH, WXW and Assault Wrestling. In addition to the US, April has competed in (and in fact just returned from) Japan and England.

To top it all off, not only can April wrestle but she is an awesome person with a great personality (even if she has to have that Slyk guy keep riding her coattails ;)



Malia Hosaka -

Sarah Stock (Griffin) -

We first say Griffin at the WXW Women's Super 8 as well. There she defeated Jessica Dally and Valentina before being defeated in the semi finals. In addition to WXW, this Canadian sensation has wrestled for PCW and MPW.

Her ability in the ring is awesome and we have yet to see her have a bad match.
