09 May 2019 – The second female athlete to be added to the SFA01 match card is none other than South African woman’s wrestler, Black Widow. What African wrestling event can truly call themselves a wrestling promotion without the Black Widow present.
Standing merely at 1.58m talls, its not nearly about the size…as a matter of fact, 40% of all phobias are related to spiders…and spiders aren’t big at all. Black Widow, has been dominating the South African wrestling scene for almost 9 years, making her debut on 10 August 2010, against Mia von Doom, and quickly climbed her way to the top of Women’s Wrestling in South Africa.
Currently Black Widow holds the CPW Ladies’ Championship, and is the longest reigning women’s champion in South African wrestling history holding her title for over 700 days, which is twice as long as AJ Styles’ WWE Championship reign at 371 days before losing his title to Daniel Bryan on November 13, 2018. Yes, it is true that South African wrestling lacks a stronger women’s scene at the moment, but has not stopped Black Widow from finding her competitors elsewhere whenever she feels the need in her to hurt some bodies.
In fact on May 6th, 2017, Black Widow defeated the Australian dynamite, Savannah Summers, to capture her current CPW Ladies’ Championship (Previously known as the WWP Ladies’ Championship) commencing her 733 day title reign.
With a complete power style designed to dominate and deliver as much pain as possible to her opponents, mixing her power game with MMA style submission moves to do as much damage as possible, before trapping her opponents in her finishing Widow’s Web (Rings of Saturn) for the win, very few athletes out there enjoys wrestling against the Widow.
However, Black Widow will have her hands full at SFA01 where she will face some of the best female athletes in the world. Does the longest reigning South African women’s champion have what it takes to withstand the test of skill against the best in the world? Or will the South African women’s wrestling scene be found wanting?
