March News, Notes and Rumors

By Steve Jameson

* I've been hearing rumors that the case regarding the reinstating of Amanda to the World Independent Ladies' Division may be nearing an end. Right now, four of the five committee members have mentioned that they have made up their minds. I guess management is waiting to hear from the fifth member before they make an official statement. I, for one, hope that we see Amanda back soon. She's an amazing talent and brings a lot to the table in WILD.

* WILD is starting to get more and more coverage by major wrestling news outlets. Aside from Diva Dirt, we are regularly featured now on Women of Indies, Ringbelles, Diva-Fiva and even in Respect Magazine, where WILD Owner Travis Leland has been asked to write a series of articles. Recently, Leland did an interview for and on the Women of Wrestling podcast. The word is spreading and people all over are starting to "go WILD."

* Speaking of which, I hear that WILD is in talks with a major wrestling affiliation group. This organization has 46 affiliates in 6 territories in 15 states as well as 7 countries on 4 continents. But one thing they do not have is a World Women's Championship. If this agreement goes through, the territories of this organization will all recognize the WILD World Championship as their top female title. WILD would still travel to companies that are not affiliated with this group, but all companies in the group would recognize WILD. Or something like that. I'm not really sure, since the higher-ups are keeping this one pretty close to the chest. But if it's true, that would be a huge deal for everyone involved.

On that note, I'll sign off this time, but I'll be back next month with more rumblings from the inside.
