One year after Defiant 2 saw off the Tivoli with one of the best matches in OTT history the women get ready to steal the show once again. Defiant 3 is loaded with some of the top women’s talents in the UK, Ireland and even an icon from Japan as OTT once again gives women’s wrestlers the chance to prove just how good they are.
Amy Allonsy vs Jinny
Allonsy is a beloved figure in the Irish wrestling scene. One half of the NLW tag team champions she has an infectious energy that has helped her become really popular with crowds up and down the island. She faces her biggest challenge to date here as she goes up against NXT UK’s Jinny. A former PROGRESS, RevPro, and Maiden Of Chaos champion Jinny is no stranger to success and will walk into this one as the favorite but Allonsy will be dead set on giving her the biggest fight she can.
Isla Dawn vs Nina Samuels
NXT UK invades OTT here as Nina Samuels does battle with Isla Dawn. Samuels is one of the best all-rounders in the UK and is a former EVE Champion while Dawn has been something of a journeywoman, wrestling for various promotions around the world with her good striking game, courtesy of Tommy End, making her a dangerous opponent for anyone to face.
Katey Harvey & Gisele Shaw vs Woke Queens (Valkyrie & Debbie Keitel)
Coming out of Road To 5th Anniversary two things were clear, Gisele Shaw and Katey Harvey were the most popular women in the building and that they both had issues with the Woke Queens. While Harvey has the chance to take Valkyrie’s title at 5th Anniversary she will team with Shaw here to get some payback on both of EVE’s new women’s tag team champions. The Woke Queens have had a stranglehold on the OTT women’s division for months thanks to their abuse of the numbers game but now the field is even and there’s no more CT Flexor to bail them out.
Emi Sakura vs Kanji
This has the potential to steal the show. Sakura is a 24-year veteran that can still go as hard as she did when she debuted. Technically proficient she is more used to the unique setting of Ichigoya Chocolate Square but as proven by her AEW appearances can still go at a high level no matter the setting. From a veteran to someone still very early into her wrestling career Kanji is on the verge of breaking out in the UK scene. She mixes in some effortless high flying to help her stand out from the pack. The former Defiant women’s ace will be eager to impress in her OTT debut so you can guarantee she’ll bring her A-game.
Raven Creed vs Sammii Jayne
We previously mentioned Defiant 2 featuring one of the best matches in OTT history. That match was Sammii Jayne defending her OTT Womens’ championship against Raven Creed in the main event of the show. These two delivered an epic last match in the Tivoli as Raven Creed overcame the dominant Jayne to capture the title and became the biggest star in the women’s division in the process. We haven’t seen Jayne since but she will be looking to reintroduce herself to the OTT fanbase by beating a former champion to re-establish herself as a top contender in the women’s division.
Toni Storm vs Millie McKenzie
According to Cagematch this is somehow only the second one on one meeting between these two women. Toni and Millie have long been two of the best women’s wrestlers in the UK scene. While Storm conquered many women’s divisions McKenzie was championing intergender wrestling and winning the respect of fans all over the UK. Both have also been successful in Japan with Storm being a former World Of Stardom Champion and McKenzie a former Sendai Girls Junior and Tag Team champion. Be it Japan, the UK or in Toni’s case the WWE these are two of the best women’s wrestlers in the world and they are sure to tear the roof off the Ringside Club.
