One of the premier female wrestlers in the country this year, Sammii has really evolved into one of the best wrestlers. A packed year of title wins and high profile matches, lets take a look at this year in Jayne’s World…

January

Sammii’s year didn’t start the best, missing out on a number one contender match at ICW before losing to Penelope at Bellatrix and to Little Miss Roxxy at MEW. Bouncing back with a win over Sara Marie-Taylor at SWE in Dundee.

February

At Pro Wrestling: EVE, The BAE Club teamed up to defeat Laura Di Matteo and Rhia O’Reilly. Later that night Sammii lost to Meiko Satomura. It wouldn’t be the last time that Sammii would be heading to Pro Wrestling:EVE…

March

Continuing her form as ‘Queen of WrestleZone’, Sammii defeated Debbie Sharpe in Newtonhill then sandwiched the month with another win over Sharpe at SWE Uprising. In between those wins there was a loss in a six person match when Jayne teamed with Sharpe and Bete Noire against Jetta, Nikki Knight and Sammi Baynz. Plus her chase after the Pro Wrestling:EVE Championship stalled with a double count out over Rhia O’Reilly then O’Reilly was able to defeat Sammii at XWA 46 in a brutal match that even saw Kota Ibushi pop up and used as a weapon.

April

In April, a loss to Emily Hayden at PBW in her return match at the promotion looked like it wasn’t going to be a great month but a win over Viper at WrestleZone in Westhill saw Sammii make a major challenge to former WWE Women’s and Divas Champion Melina for WrestleZone Aberdeen Anarchy.

May

May is when Sammii Jayne’s year really kicked off. After Rhia O’Reilly had to vacate the EVE Championship due to injury a tournament was set up over the Babes With Power weekender. Sammii defeated former EVE Champion Emi Sakura in the first round before moving on to defeat Riho and Viper in the semifinals. Jayne reached the final to face Kay Lee Ray and pulled out the victory, becoming EVE Champion for the first time, a title that has been held by the likes of Nikki Cross, Jazzy Gabert and Paige.

At WrestleZone, wins were traded with Debbie Sharpe before Jayne headed to The Beach Ballroom in Aberdeen for Aberdeen Anarchy. Originally scheduled to face Melina, however, Melina had to withdraw from the match due to injury. Viper took her place in a tables match which saw Jayne victorious in front of over 1000 people in The Granite City. Following the match, Sammii got in about Melina which could’ve possibly planted the seeds for a future bout. The night after Sammii teamed with Viper, coming up short against Kasey and Kay Lee Ray at ICW Fight Club.

The month ended with a successful defence of her newly won EVE Championship against Jetta at 3CW but not before starting another championship journey with a win over PROGRESS Wrestling Women’s Champion Toni Storm at Discovery Wrestling, earning a place in the final to crown the first Discovery Wrestling Woman’s Champion.

July

Sammii headed to Spain for RCW and lost to Leah Owens in a match that also included Kasey. She qualified for EVE’s SHE-1 by defeating Debbie Sharpe at Dangerous Women. She avenged her loss to Leah Owens later that night at EVE’s But First, Some Rebellion event in a match that also included Kasey… Sammii also continued to compete in W3L into July.

August

A rough month for Sammii in August, loses to Little Miss Roxxy at Absolute, Jinny at Lucha Forever and missing out on becoming the first PCW Women’s Champion after qualifying earlier in the night with a win over Debbie Sharpe.

September

Sammii returned to Spain at the start of September, losing to Hana Kimura in the RCW Women’s World Cup. She bounced back the very next night by defeating Santana Garrett to win the RCW Women’s Championship, adding another title to her collection. She kept her EVE Championship by defeating Leah Owens. She popped up at British Championship Wrestling to team with Saqib Ali to defeat Dylan Angel and Lucy Cole in East Kilbride and teamed with Debbie Sharpe at 3CW to defeat Gemini and Little Miss Roxxy. Her chance to become the Discovery Wrestling Woman’s Champion was cut short due to stoppage when Lucy Cole suffered an injury during the match.

October

Another month continued with Sammii retaining her EVE Championship, first by defeating Debbie Sharpe at Nasty Women, then defeated Debbie again at XWA 50 in a match that involved Kay Lee Ray. There were a couple of tag team loses in XWA, teaming with Jetta against Debbie Sharpe and Kay Lee Ray, and in PBW, teaming with Emily Hayden against Kay Lee Ray and Lucy Cole. The month ended with another win over Debbie Sharpe at WrestleZone Halloween Hijinks, her self appointed reign as Queen of WrestleZone continued.

November

November started with her winning the Discovery Wrestling Woman’s Championship, defeating Martina, Lucy Cole and Ayesha Raymond to become the first champion. An incredible run in the SHE-1, wins over Jamie Hayter and Martina, a loss to Laura Di Matteo didn’t stop her moving onto the final with a win in the Block C play off against Di Matteo and Hayter. Unfortunately she went on to lose in the final three way to Charlie Morgan. After a loss to Little Miss Roxxy at MEW, she made her Southside debut in November, losing to Sienna at Southside and missing out in the Southside Queen of the Ring with a loss in the first round to Lana Austin, it wasn’t a great end to the month but she did pick up a win over Shax.

November was a very special month though, Sammii was one of the UK wrestlers to take part in the latest WWE tryouts in London.

December

The first defense of her Discovery Wrestling Woman’s Championship was successful with a win over Kay Lee Ray. A victory over Kasey at WrestleZone Christmas Chaos then a win in a tag team match on night one 3CW’s A Fight Before Christmas, teaming with Charli Evans against Jetta and Little Miss Roxxy before defeating Little Miss Roxxy the next night in a steel cage match. She just missed out on picking up the ICW Women’s Championship against Kasey in the last ICW Fight Club Taping of the year saw Sammii close out an action packed year.
