January 27, 2022,
There is an exciting brand of Lady Pro women’s wrestling that is brewing in the United Kingdom.
As far as brands and brews go, this is a dynamic one. It will give you a major buzz.
With an eye towards the United Kingdom, have you heard of NXT UK?
New brand. Brand new.
Brands are divisions of WWE’s roster where wrestlers are assigned to perform on a weekly basis.
Wrestlers assigned to NXT UK primarily appear on the brand’s weekly television program, NXT UK. The brand serves as a sub-brand of WWE’s developmental territory, NXT, with NXT UK wrestlers also occasionally appearing on its show, NXT.
Unlike WWE’s other brands, NXT UK is produced exclusively in the United Kingdom and is specifically centered on wrestlers from the country.
Our brand awareness is growing.
On October 17, 2018, the inaugural episode of NXT UK aired on the WWE Network at 8 p.m. UK time and 3 p.m. Eastern Time.
It was a great success.
On December 31, 2019, WWE announced that NXT UK would begin airing on BT Sport in the United Kingdom.
On 21 January 2020, it was announced that NXT UK would also air on Paramount Network UK on a six-day delay after its WWE Network and BT Sport broadcasts.
So who are some of the Female Stars in this WWW Brand across the pond?
One of our favorites is Millie Mckenzie.
Ms. McKenzie is a former one-time Pro Wrestling Revolver Tag Team Champion, former one-time Defiant Women’s Champion, former one-time Fight Forever Wrestling Women’s World Champion, a former one-time Kamikaze Pro Tag Team Champion and a one-time Sendai Girls Junior Champion.
What a resume. That’s a lot. Extremely impressive. Why?
As of this writing Millie is only 20 years old.
Are you as shocked as we are by her age? Shocked and in awe.
Millie clearly got started as only a teen. She apparently knew what she wanted early and went after it.
A fifteen year old professional wrestler is mind blowing.
Her earliest known match was in Full Force Wrestling.
Under the ring name Millie Marks, she wrestled Alexis Rose to a No Contest finish. From that point forward, Millie spent her early years in matches for numerous promotions including Ironfist Wrestling, Monmouthshire Championship Wrestling, PROGRESS Wrestling, Leicester Championship Wrestling, British Empire Wrestling and Wrestle Midlands, International Pro Wrestling: United Kingdom.
Millie made her televised WWE debut on November 14 episode of NXT UK.
During that episode, McKenzie competed in a tournament for the United Kingdom Women’s Championship. She was eliminated during the first round by Jinny. McKenzie returned to television the following week on the November 28 episode of NXT UK, where she teamed with Xia Brookside in defeating Charlie Morgan & Killer Kelly in a tag match.
Sounds like fun.
Who is Jinny? After all, she did defeat Millie.
Leading to her eventual signing with the WWE she competed in tournaments including the 2018 Mae Young Classic as well as for the WWE United Kingdom Women’s Championship held during the second annual WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament.
Jinny has some great accomplishments of her own.
Our luminary is the first female graduate of PROGRESS Wrestling‘s school The Projo.
In terms of her resume, Jinny has wrestled for a number of promotions such as: PROGRESS Wreslting, OTT Wrestling, Revolution Pro Wrestling, Pro Wrestling Chaos, IPW:UK, Fierce Females, Empress Pro, SouthCoast Wrestling, VII Pro Wrestling, Plymouth Wrestling Association and Wrestling League.
Drum roll please.
Briefly, here are two other very honorable mentions.
Nina began wrestling for British Empire Wrestling (BEW) in 2014.
On September 19, at BEW/RCW Britain’s Rising 2, she teamed with Kirsty Love in a tag match against to Dragonita and Shanna. She returned at BEW Britain’s Rising IV in a match against the reigning champion Leah Owens for the Revolution Championship Wrestling’s Women’s title. Samuels competed on 3 June at the 2017 International Grand Prix three-way match against Christi Jaynes and Shotzi Blackheart.
This Lady Pro has been very busy. And you know what?
She just became busier.
Recently, our British Maiden has started her own show called The Nina Samuels Show, where she interviews various fellow superstars of NXT UK.
On August 25, 2018 she competed in the first round of the NXT UK Women’s Championship Tournament.
Dawn competed in the 2018 the legendary WWW Mae Young Classic tournament.
As you can see, Female Professional Wrestling is vibrant, young and alive in the United Kingdom. The WWE NXT brand is flourishing.
In viewing their online videos, many of the girls have had great experiences wrestling in Japan and some wonderful photos to show for it. Memories too.
We love the NXT Brand.
If you look up these energetic and entertaining Female British Wrestlers online, we’re confident you will love them too.
