Lethalwow Top 25 Ranking of 2009 – #9:
Angel Orsini

Ranked #19 in 2008

Angel Orsini is perhaps one of the most underrated and under publicized women’s wrestler among wrestling fans on the internet. She was even criminally not included in Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s 2008 Female Top 50. She however made the Top 50 in 2009 at 22, but not nearly high enough. In Lethalwow’s Top 25 Ranking of 2009, she ranked above numerous notable Shimmer, TNA, and WWE contenders for the top 10 spot. This wouldn’t be possible without the remarkable year she has had as an in-ring competitor.

Angel Orsini went into 2009 as the Women Superstars Uncensored Champion. On her heels after the title was Mercedes Martinez, which was a heated rivalry. On January 10, 2009 at WSU Poetic Justice Caged, Angel Orsini defeated Mercedes Martinez in a Steel Cage match, to retain the WSU championship. After another successful title defense on February 7, 2009 against Kylie Pierce, Mercedes Martinez brought Angel’s 280 day title reign to an end in a bullrope match on March 7, 2009 at WSU’s second anniversary show.

Despite loosing the title, Angel remained a key player in WSU. On April 10, 2009, Angel won the WSU Women’s J-Cup Tournament, defeating Annie Social in a 1st Round match, Trixxie Lynn in a 2nd round match, and Rain in the finals. As her feud with Mercedes continued, the ladies made history on June 6, 2009 when Mercedes Martinez defeated Angel Orsini in an Iron Woman Match that went over 60minues. This marked the last time Angel could challenge Mercedes for the title; however, Angel would hold gold again. Various turn of events led to November 7, 2009, where Angel Orsini & Mercedes Martinez defeated Jessicka Havoc & Hailey Hatred to win the WSU Tag Titles in a hard fought battle.

Angel also feuded with Rain in WSU—towards the end of 2009—as their alliance fell apart. Their bad blood came to ahead on October 3, 2009 at WSU Excellence, where she lost an “Uncensored Rules” match against Rain. Angel continued wrestling at various shows for the promotion, with another history making match on December 12, where she faced former ECW rival Jazz.

Tag Team Top 10 of 2009 – #9:
Lexie Fyfe and Malia Hosaka

If anything TNA Wrestling can take away from Shimmer Women Athletes that would help them immediately, it would be how to book a women’s tag team division and how to pair women. While the company only tapes a handful of DVDs each year, it’s cult following helps to put over any wrestler that works their shows on any women’s ranking.

This year, The Experience (Malia Hosaka & Lexie Fyfe), continued to be a mainstay in Shimmer. While we don’t get to see this team on a regular basis, the share presence of having a team consisting of veterans of women’s wrestling is unbeatable—A dynamic that adds to any division.
