It is announced that the Inaugural Women’s World Featherweight Champion is to be crowned at the Kings of Colosseum. This event will be May 13th in Philadelphia, PA.
“Major League Wrestling will crown the inaugural women’s World Featherweight Champion as history is made in Philadelphia on Friday, May 13th at the storied 2300 Arena. Two of the best female fighters in the world will clash as legacies and destinies are defined and realized when Taya Valkyrie collides with Holidead.”
However, coming off a win against Australia’s top-ranked Shazza McKenzie, the undefeated Holidead now faces Taya Valkyrie. Valkyrie, who is returning after a long absence from MLW, is a worthy competitor. Taya has won titles in Mexico, Japan, and the USA, proving she is one of the greatest today. Also, a former member of the Los Perros del Mal stable, and three-time AAA Reina de Reinas champion, Taya makes the perfect opponent for Holidead.
The announcement from MLW also says that:
“MLW plans on having multiple women’s divisions. Like the men with the heavyweight and middleweight divisions, the women’s featherweight division promises to showcase the best and promote fair fights in stature between fighters of similar attributes. “
This statement would show that MLW wants to divide its female roster into divisions, just like the men. Another possibility is that MLW plans to start recruiting more women into the divisions so that they can compete. These divisions would give MLW something unique for audiences to tune in to. Additionally, this change can possibly work to dispel the constant chatter about believable matchups between competitors.
This weekend, Taya will take on the current AAA Reina de Reinas Champion, Deonna Purrazzo, Rebellion for IMPACT. After May 13th, will we see the emergence of Triple Title Taya? Will Holidead establish herself as THE WOMAN of MLW? Only time will tell!
