Very, very sneaky, indeed.

So Chris did it again.. He made a very cool preview for all of the Chickfight matches. I told him I would be blogging about his greatness, and I'd like to take a picture of him.. and he proceeded to act like a girl about getting his picture taken. So I took the super-sneaky photo you see above. Ah hah.. Fillet o' feeesh.

Anyhow, Chris made the ChickFight 4 preview that was released today. It's awesome, and has a super creepy finale. You should all watch it and salivate as you wait for the actual matches to release. It was the best ChickFight to date.

It's all relative.

So I may have been a little impatient at work on Friday, but it's been busy enough around here for the past two days to keep me occupied, so I am pleased. Recently I have been working less with actual footage, and more with clientelle and customers. This is a change that I like. I love talking to people, I love solving problems. I get to play hero. It's fun.
I have been working on SOME footage, though. I've been cutting and editing the Kezar show, which has been a lot of fun as well. We had 5 cameras shooting the San Francisco Kezar show, and it's been a real learning experience. I have so much to work with that I have the ability to be a lot more choosey about the cuts I make. It's wonderful.. It's so, so pretty. I get to watch this 3-way match with Melissa, MsChif, and Mercedes in 5 angles. You all should be very jealous.

It's kinda sihry.. But not rearry.

It's a lonely day in the ClickWrestle offices today. Bryan? Sick. Chris? Day off. BossMan? Well.. I am never quite sure what BossMan is up to. So today it's just me and a couple people from a seperate business in the office. And while I generally like the work environment to be a little less crowded, the fact that today is Friday makes this a little harder on me. I want to goooo... I want to play.. I want to run around on the beaches of Santa Monica. Alas.

Instead? I am working on getting more footage providers. (aww, man.. One of the guys from the other company is leaving, too, now! Bah!) While I am sure Indy Wrestling Promotions across the nation understand the whole nationwide coverage/income deal, I don't think they have business on their mind, either. They all want to play on the beaches of Santa Monica as well.

Oh my god. The last employee just left. What am I doing here? Waaaaaaaaaaah!

Perhaps Egg was as worried about Momma Pigeon as I was, after seeing the state of Something Else Completely (formerly Unfortunate Pigeon) and Other Egg, and has fled the nest... Or perhaps Momma Pigeon has struck again. I can't tell yet. All I know is that Egg is now about a foot away from the nest, and has little tiny cracks in him, as you can see in the photo. I fear egg is either dead (dying?) after a mishap with Momma Pigeon, or perhaps Egg is hatching? Let's hope for the latter. 100% mortality rate is just too much, folks.

A waist is a terrible thing to mind.. Dude.

..but I can't seem to avoid noticing one of APW's top wrestler's physiques lately. Former All Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Champion, Kafu, wrestled the ECW Hardcore Legend, The SandMan, this Past Saturday at Kezar in San Francisco.

Kafu, while a little insane, has made some vast improvements as of late. His wrestling, his passion, and what I noticed the most this past Saturday, his looks! He has really stepped up and taken care of himself. Check out Kafu 2/3 years ago:

Look at the improvement! In any case.. I'm thinking you should all keep your eye on this Indy star. I am betting he is going to be a pretty big deal one day soon. Even if he is one crazy dude.. The Brazilian Beast (Beef?) is definitely going to move on up.

2000 more raindrops, and my cup doth not overfloweth.

Ah ha! And now it is time for those reviews I promised. I am a woman of my word. ;)

ChickFight numbero quatro. How exciting these female shows are. There is a whole different atmosphere. During the opening round Mercedes Martinez defeated Carla Jade, Cheerleader Melissa defeated Rain, MsChif defeated Candice LaRae, and Lacey defeated Hailey Hatred. These four matches were good. Some were a bit short for my liking. I really would of liked to see Candice LaRae get a little more play. I hear she isn't half bad, but she just didn't have a chance against my pick of the night, MsChif.

In the Semi-Final round of ChickFight 4, there was Mercedes versus Melissa and MsChif versus Lacey. While MsChif is still my strong favorite of the show, Melissa and Mercedes really put on the match of the night during this round. These girls did not hold back at all. Every punch, every kick, everything they did hit home and HARD. How either of them managed to wrestle again after this match, I do not know. I saw both of these women back-stage after the show and they were completely covered in the most grotesque bruises. If I ever had any doubts about whether or not wrestling was real or not, they completely vacated my mind after seeing those girls post-match. These women really beat the snot out of eachother.

And as the Final Round of ChickFight 4, we see MsChif take on Mercedes Martinez. This was a fantastic match. I loved it, but I have a small reservation. I feel like if these women weren't so broken and bruised, there could of been an even better match. I often feel this way after tournaments, though. I will think about how fantastic a match is, but then thing.. "Wow! It would of been even BETTER if these girls didn't just completely exhaust themselves twice before this match ever took place today!" Tournament style or no, this match was great.. There was a few unexpected events that took place during the match, but it all made everything even better. In the end? Well.. Never go against my picks. ;)

And last, but certainly not least... There were Zombies.. Oh yes. There were zombies. Bwa haha!

Never put all of your eggs in one basket.. Especially this basket.

Ahh.. After a long weekend that included a holiday and a huge show, I am sure you are all just chomping at the bit for a review.. Well. I am going to make you all wait for it. Bwa-ha-ha. Honestly, I still need time to digest all that happened on Saturday. It was so huge. 2 big bad shows that we have been working on for so long now. It's amazing to me that not so long ago I was calling venue after venue trying to help BossMan nail down a location. Look how far that progressed? It's a lot of fun to see a project through. I feel pretty good about that.

So.. Since I am not going to leave you with a review, I will leave you with a few of my favorite photos, and a quick word about the pigeons.

I just want to say.. This whole nature-watching pigeon baby experience is really starting to get me down. I scared off Momma Pigeon today in order to check out the eggs. Unfortunate Pigeon is still there, but appears to be turning in to something else completely. I look at the eggs.. and it's not eggs anymore. It's egg. Where did other-egg go?! What is Momma Pigeon doing? So now it's just Egg and Momma Pigeon. Other Egg is gone.. forever? Where could Other Egg have gone? He is not in the vicinity. I know Other Egg couldn't of just taken off. I think Momma Pigeon sold Other Egg on the black market. I fear for Egg's life. Will Egg turn out like Other Egg and Unfortunate Pigeon? What a motley crew this is..

Well you're a real tough cookie with a long history..

So, while I am very excited about the whole day on Saturday.. I must admit that I do have a special place in my heart for ChickFight. Being a strong supporter of women's issues, and a bit of a feminist, I always find it exciting when an all female event takes place in a male dominated realm. When it is an event like ChickFight, where the women are presented as strong, capable, athletic, and smart rather than the more prevaliant bimbo eye-candy, it's something I truely get inspired by.

I thought I'd talk a little about the contestants of ChickFight today, I'll go in order of the pictures descending the right side of this column. First off we have the lovely, if ill-tempered, Rain. Rain has competed in one prior ChickFight, the last one in fact. She faced off against Mariko Yoshida, who promptly turned Rain's knew only pain. Rain didn't have much of a world into a place that showing at that event, so I am hoping I get to see a little bit more from her this time around.

Next we have MsChif. MsChif has really caught my eye recently. Beyond her passion and rage, she is backed by amazing flexibility and tremendous athletic ability. I have seen this woman in some amazing matches against some great wrestlers. She wrestled in a cage match versus Mickey Knuckles that was absolutely brutal. In the recent past she wrestled Cheerleader Melissa at Shimmer, the two of them tore each other apart. MsChif is definately a favorite of mine coming in to this tournament.

Mercedes Martinez is our next competitor. She is a powerhouse. Her style of wrestling can be likened to those such as Sara Del Ray, the amazing women Japanese Wrestling like Ninja Ranmaru or Drake Morimatsu. This latina is definately a force to be reckoned with, and I wouldn't be surprised to see her leaving this tournament with a victory.

Melissa is a favorite and has competed in all 3 prior
ChickFight tournaments. Coming in to the finals at the first two, and timing out in a battle against Sara Del Ray at the last. I am interested to see what will happen with her at the end of this bout.

Lacey! I am also very excited about this competitor.
Lacey has been a growing favorite of mine as well.
Probably my 2nd favorite wrestler in the tournament, in fact. Lacey has a lot of attitude, but some great skills in the ring too. I'd be a happy camper seeing Lacey win this ChickFight.

Lastly we have Carla Jade and Candace La Rae. I don't know entirely too much about either of these wrestlers, as I haven't seen much work from either of them. Candace La Rae is a nice little Canadian chica who had participated in ChickFight 1, she quickly was eliminated from the tournament, having had the unfortunate luck of running in to Princess Sugey, ChickFight 1 champion, during the first round. Either of these girls might just have something up their sleeves, but I don't know enough to make any predictions.

So who do I think will win? Well.. My money is on MsChif at this point. She is my favorite, and I'll stick with her. As far as other predictions for Saturday? Well.. I predict that Bryan will be staying clear of the cage during Kafu's match versus the Sandman. That's one cage he wont want to be locked in.

Much ado about something; Twelve thousand raindrops in every ocean.

So I have been talking about this Kezar Show for weeks now. I figure it's time to give you all the low-down on what's what. Here in San Francisco, we will be holding the 4th ever ChickFight tournament and also one more huge mixed-gender show on Saturday.

With two shows in one day, there is a ton going on. The Chickfight show will have 8 of the nation's worthiest female wrestlers competing, including ClickWrestle favorites like Melissa, MsChif, Hailey Hatred, and Mercedes Martinez.

The night time will be your classic All Pro Wrestling show, amplified ten times over. We will be having the ECW Hardcore Legend, The Sandman, take on our own former Universal HeavyWeight Champion, Kafu in a steel cage. Ahh.. The gore that will follow!

And it's all only ten bucks. Not too shabby, eh? Everyone should come! Carpool. Call your neighbors. Bring people who don't even like wrestling.. They can always watch our Undead Zombie Burlesque Dancers (who are worth way more than just ten bucks in themselves.) gyrate their much decayed hips and feast on the blood (brains) of innocents.

Miss Congeniality

This little lady managed to pop up on's front page twice today, so I thought I'd go ahead and talk about her in the blog, too. Make it a nice little tri-fecta. So, here we have "The Well Rounded" Christie Ricci. She is featured in the match of the day and had a new match released just yesterday.

Ricci, who was a tomboy growing up, found her softer side as a teen and started competing in beauty pageants. She gained the title of Miss Teen Tennessee and competed in the Miss Teen USA pageant. Her history in pageantry no doubt leads to her current nick-name in the ring, the Mississippi Queen. In any case, Christie is a great wrestler and I encourage you all to watch her matches. (On a side note.. she has the spiffiest little kneepad/boot cover things. Very cool.)

Other news? If you open up today's issue of the SF Guardian to page 39 you will see APW's Derek Sanders posing with his APW Universal HeavyWeight title and Melissa putting Sara Del Ray in to an inverted Texas cloverleaf submission. How neat is that? On top of that you'll see a little spot pimpin' out this Saturday's show at the Kezar Pavilion in San Francisco. Come check it out! All your favorite female wrestlers will be there, all of your favorite APW stars will be there, and even the ECW Hardcore Legend "The Sandman" will be there. For more info, check out

Lastly.. Pigeons. Unfortunate Pigeon is still unfortunate. Momma pigeon is roosting so often that I havent been able to check on the eggs.. Hopefully her extra roosting will make up for the fact that she has shown such a lackluster performance up to this point.

Avian Flu - Doom.

So, I am going to stick away from the morbid pigeon stories today. Bossman gave me a good little scare though, something about the avian flu. I will try not to die.

I spent the day reviewing possible new footage carriers. A lot of new female stuff might be coming our way. A lot of smaller names, new faces. I hope it works out. It's always nice to see newer faces in wrestling.. Especially pretty ones like these girls.

In other news, there is a match coming out in the next few days that features Melissa versus a great Japanese wrestler, Drake Morimatsu. The match is fantastic, but that's not what I want you guys to look for. Check out the awesome match preview that our new employee, Chris, has made. It's really, really good. So keep your eyes open for that.

Speaking of Chris, I've come to a conclusion about him. Dude looks just like Crispin Glover. You know... Crispin Glover? From Charlies Angels? And Willard? Here. See for yourself.

Not all that shines is gold, so we'll stick to Shimmering

I come to you all today with mixed news. I have some good, and some bad. I'll start off with the good.

Shimmer! Yay, yay! Huzzah! Shimmer Volume two is finally being released on How exciting. All of our favorite American female wrestlers at each other's throats once more. I love the shimmer footage. The quality of the video alone is great. Such crisp pictures with ideal lighting. Yesterday's release was great, too.. A 4 way battle including Mercedes Martinez and Sara Del Ray. It was a great follow up to the match those two had at the prior event which concluded in a 20 minute draw. Those two women are so powerful. It's amazing to watch them in the ring.

Speaking of Mercedes, she'll be in town next week at the Kezar Pavilion when APW brings back ChickFight. If you are in the San Francisco area, definitely come check her out.

And now... The bad news. Ladies and gentlemen, I am going to admit something.. I may have been wrong. So, I have been pretty excited about this baby pigeon thing. The eggs, the cuteness, the maternal. Whatever. The guys in the office thought it was silly, but I was stoked. As it turns out, this fascination has turned south. Maybe pigeons really are dumb.

When I came to the office this morning, I glanced out the window to check on the pigeon-baby-egglings. I saw Momma Pigeon sitting in the nest. Good, right? Noon comes around, and momma Pigeon is still sitting in nest. Fine. I open the window so I can crawl out and take a picture, and Momma Pigeon takes off. What I see next is a sad, sad thing. First off. The eggs aren't there. Why? Where did they go? Second off.. the was another pigeon behind Momma Pigeon. We will call this pigeon Unfortunate Pigeon. Unfortunate Pigeon is in an uncomfortable position and isn't moving. It's safe to say that Unfortunate Pigeon might be deceased. Confused, I looked around. Where are the eggs? Oh. There they are. Lying in a puddle of water, having fallen from the nest. (about a 6 inch fall) Momma Pigeon is either a mass murderer, or just doing very poorly and the whole "momma" thing. In any case. I felt a little bad, so I plucked up the eggs and put them back in the nest, hoping they aren't too damaged. Yes. I put the water-logged egglettes next to Unfortunate pigeon. We'll see what happens, but I am definitely under-whelmed with the whole maternal pigeon process. Stupid birds.

The moral of the story? There are 2. First: Don't pay too much attention to wild-life. It's morbid. Second: Come watch Mercedes! This Saturday!
