I just bid safe travels to VeVe, as she stepped out the door to the airport on her way to London this weekend to wrestle at Monica's. She'll be away until late Tuesday night.
And while VeVe was making her London travel preparations this week, she was also negotiating for her next match here in NYC. Upon her return next week, VeVe will be gearing up to face a travelling wrestler who's in town lately:
All negotiations seem to be set, and we are aiming to shoot late next week. Perhaps next Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. We have a sponsor involved for this match who has also requested some special conditions for VeVe to observe: VeVe is not allowed to use straight armbars or the rear naked choke (choke from behind). This should pose an interesting challenge for the Petite Powerhouse and will force her to think fast during the fray. Julie has got the size advantage and is very athletic, so, get ready for an exciting fight.
And that's what's new from over on this front! If you're in the UK and near London, swing over to Monica's and say hello to VeVe.

I'm composing this as I ride the subway home after a trip to the gym and the post office, where I dropped off some DVD shipments this evening.
Tonight, I have my work cut out for me as I assemble the materials for our upcoming latest match release: VeVe vs Blazin' Ben 2: REMATCH.
This is the match I'd been mentioning in prior entries. This was a special commission request, and VeVe's attire was to consist of tan/natural pantyhose and a black leotard. So, what we had was a rough, physical mixed match with VeVe decked out somewhat like a ballet dancer. Minus, of course, the hair bun and the ballet shoes.
This match was particularly challenging for VeVe because the commissioner had requested that she focus on gaining particular holds and takedowns; that's a tough order to fulfill in a competitive bout. The special requests were for hip throws, shoulder throws, and holds and submissions involving the legs and feet. So, VeVe had to put her thinking cap on and work for techniques other than her reliable favorites the double leg takedown and the guillotine choke.
It was a fun piece to film and nerve-wrecking as well, due to the usual roughness that Blazin' Ben brings into his bouts. No injuries, of course, thank goodness, but plenty of excitement from these two game and hardy opponents.
All righty, I'm coming up to my stop soon. Time for me to get to work.
Also, as I write this, VeVe, Clobberetta, and Amazon Annie are up in Montreal for the weekend. I'm disappointed that my schedule did not allow me to accompany them this year on this annual trip. I've asked them to take photos; I hear they'll be dressing to the 9's for a party tonight.
Now, on to the video match.....
