The fans have spoken, and LadySports is proud to officially proclaim Jessie Belle Smothers as the PGWA Wrestler of the Year for 2010.
An astonishing 4,123 votes were cast in the poll at ProWrestlingDigest.com, with Jessie earning an impressive 38% of them. What makes her success even more astonishing is that, as of this writing, she has had only one match in the PGWA; clearly, she made a strong impression on PGWA fans!
But the story doesn't end there! The battle for first place was keenly fought by Jessie and Nemesis, both of whom exchanged the lead several times. At one point during the last few hours of the poll, there seemed to exist the very real possibility that it may end in a tie! As you'll see from the numbers below, statistically this damned near was dead even!
Rounding out the top five are pair of European ladies very popular with PGWA fans, Britain's April and Sweden's Jenny Sjφdin, and in fifth place came another shocker, as Mary Kelly, who made her PGWA debut as last September's A Call to Arms, made her presence known. The newcomer beat out such better-known battlers as Angel Riptide' Orsini, Mickie Knuckles and Brittany Force to make it.
It goes without saying that the PGWA is as thunderstruck by the tremendous voter turnout for this poll as we are proud of the nearly three dozen ladies in the tally, all of whom thrilled fans in 2010! All of these fine women are winners!
Special thanks goes to Karen Belcher at Pro Wrestling Digest for her continuing support. We can't wait to do it all over again next year, Karen!
