A Year in Review
It is one night out from IPW’s Time Crisis 2. I’m sitting here reflecting on the year that’s been, all its ups and downs, and I’ve just realised that I will actually be wrestling the next 5 weekends in a row. That’s every weekend until Christmas! Holy sh*t. When did I become a worker?!
I’ve done a lot of things I never thought I with do in wrestling this year, things like wrestling Bea Priestley in front of over 600 people in Invercargill, having 6 matches in a weekend at Wellington Armageddon, finally overcoming my fear of the top rope and landing a Moonsault, or feuding over whether or not pineapple belongs on pizza. I’ve had 25 matches in front of a live crowd since my debut match at Rainbows End in September 2016, and that will reach 30 by the end of the year. I’ve also been booked by 5 different promotions in New Zealand (there are only 8 wrestling promotions in the country).
Writing this down is absolutely surreal to me.
On top of all that I’ve also built a pretty steady fan base and online following. I’m proud that I can now call some of these people friends too. It amazes me that people genuinely enjoy what I do, and look forward to seeing me perform and I can’t thank them enough for supporting my journey.
I’m hoping to bring out a T-shirt design and some 8/10’s in the New Year should you be interested in supporting me that way. Let me know in the comments if you would be keen to buy some merch!
For your convenience, should you have any interest in following my upcoming appearances, this is where I’ll be over the next 5 weeks:
Ashlee Vs Candy Lee
Ashlee Vs Britenay
