In the wake of the ongoing #SpeakingOut movement, many promotions have begun adding safeguards to protect both their talents and fans. Promotions like PROGRESS, TNT Extreme, and Schadenfreude & Friends have added advocates and other safety positions to their teams. After previously issuing a company safeguards policy, Fight Factory Pro Wrestling continued to build on this new foundation. On Monday, FFPW announced that Debbie Keitel would be taking on the role of talent and fan liaison. She will join her peers Kasey Owens, Molly Spartan and Aleah James in this type of role.
We are very happy to announce that @DebbieKeitel will be taking on the role of Talent/Fan Liasion for Fight Factory.
Issues can be brought to Debbie for advice or to be put in touch with a coach etc. to reach a solution, and will be dealt with in confidentiality.

Debbie, who shared her own experiences through the social media movement, will be a contact and source of support. She will help with the resolution of issues, involving trainers and others as needed. All of this will be completely confidential for the victims. Debbie Keitel is a three-year pro and trained at FFPW herself. She’s part of the well-known tag team Woke Queens with Valkyrie (aka Aoife Valkyrie). They are former Pro Wrestling EVE Tag Team Champions. Debbie is also the current Fierce Females Internet Champion.
Keitel is well-traveled on the Irish and UK wrestling scenes. In addition to Pro Wrestling EVE and Fierce Females, she has competed for Over the Top Wrestling, Celtic Championship Wrestling, Reckless Intent Wrestling, Insane Championship Wrestling, and RevPro Wrestling. She’s also appeared for Emi Sakura’s promotion in Japan, Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling. In her short career, Debbie has proved herself as a hard-working journey-woman on the scene. Now she steps up as a leader as wrestling looks to change on fundamental levels. We wish FFPW well as they continue to rebuild and Debbie all the best in her new role.
