The South has always been a hotbed of great women's wrestling over the years, and if this impressive young
blonde is any indication, Dixie has produced yet another outstanding ring competitor!
Although relatively new to the sport, Nikki has been making quite a name for herself... so much so that
she recently earned a title shot at Tracy Taylorís PGWA Championship! That she didnít win is no slight
to Nikki, given the fact that she managed to be such a serious challenge for the veteran titleholder.
One can only imagine how much of a force Ms. Diamond is going to be in wrestling after she gets
some more experience under her belt!
Itís now our pleasure to help introduce Nikki Diamond to wrestling fans worldwide... !
