Where Are They Now: Fierce Females (@FFemalesGlasgow) ‘Luke… Who’s Yer Da?’ (4 May 2013)

10 years ago, in a galaxy far, far, away, Insane Championship Wrestling had a then-affiliated promotion that would feature all women matches. It was called Fierce Females, with some of the elite women wrestlers in the world heading to Glasgow to do battle in front of a roaring crowd. On this night a champion would be crowned, the first Fierce Females Champion.

Where are they now?

Kay Lee Ray

Following a one night tournament, Kay Lee Ray defeated Viper in the final to become the first Fierce Females Champion. A title she would go on to hold for over 750 days. Now known as Alba Fyre, she has went on to light the wrestling world on fire by going on to win the ICW Women’s World Championship three times, a Queen of Southside Champion, EVE Champion, WOS Women’s Champion before heading to NXT UK to hold the NXT UK Women’s Championship for a then record breaking 649 days.

More recently, Alba Fyre and fellow Fierce Females alumni Isla Dawn currently reign as NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions with a recent move to the Smackdown roster as part of the WWE Draft.

One of they most successful wrestlers in Scottish wrestling, and still going strong.


The other finalist of the Fierce Females Championship Tournament, Viper would eventually dethrone Kay Lee Ray and going to hold the title for over 1,100 days. Following tours of Japan for Stardom, and winning titles including the being the first ICW Women’s Champion, Viper headed to NXT UK where she would continue her rivalry with Kay Lee Ray.

Now Piper Niven, she would make her debut on WWE RAW in 2021 accompanying Eva Marie under the new guise “Doudrop”, getting to the final of the inaugural Queen of the Ring tournament which took place in Saudi Arabia.

Returning to her Piper Niven name in 2023, she continues to be a looming presence on Monday nights.

Bete Noire

The third Fierce Females Champion, would win the title from Viper in an emotionally charged no disqualification match.

Noire would enjoy tours of Japan with Ice Ribbon and REINA, while also wrestling for EVE regularly.

After a name change to Jayla Dark, and new attitude in 2017, Dark would retire in 2019 following a final tour of Japan, and final match tour which saw her last match on Scottish soil taking place at World Wide Wrestling League against Emily Hayden.

Dark did make a surprise one night only return in 2021 during the EVE Championship Rumble.

Jayla is now a Twitch streamer, along with being a commentator for EVE.

Crazy Mary Dobson

Crazy Mary Dobson was known for her hardcore antics that would often see her covered in her own blood. Coming in from the USA, she made a couple of appearances in Scotland including a barbaric match in Insane Championship Wrestling that included Jack Jester.

In 2016, Dobson would sign with WWE as part of the NXT brand before making her Smackdown debut the following year as part of The Riott Squad with Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott under the name Sarah Logan.

After her release in 2020, Logan would return to WWE in 2022 as Valhalla, going on to accompany The Viking Raiders.

Kasey Owens

Then part of The Owens Twins with her sister Leah, Kasey would go on to strike out on her own, heading to Ice Ribbon in Japan later that year, then returning for Stardom in 2016.

A record matching three time ICW Women’s World Champion, along with making an appearance on the short lived World of Sport Wrestling revival in 2018, and a handful of matches in NXT UK in 2019.

An ongoing workhorse in the UK, Kasey would form a further alliance with Molly Spartan as The She-Wolves, winning the TNT Tag Team Championships, and TNT Women’s Tag Team Championships, while making the presence felt in Insane Championship Wrestling, and Discovery Wrestling on this side of the border.

Kasey is the current Discovery Wrestling Women’s Champion, holding the title for over 500 days as of writing.

Leah Owens

Much like Kasey, Leah would head to Japan for a short Ice Ribbon tour in 2013, before returning in 2016 with Stardom.

Leah went on to wrestle primarily for EVE along with matches in Europe, becoming the first RCW Women’s Champion in Spain, also holding the W3L Women’s Championship twice.

After retiring in 2018 due to injury, Leah Owens still serves as lead commentator at EVE, making a one night only comeback in 2021 as part of the EVE Championship Rumble.

Rhia O’Reilly

One of the most successful wrestlers regularly active in the UK, O’Reilly made multiple appearances for SHIMMER in the USA, and for Progress Wrestling, along with EVE where she would become a three time EVE Champion.

World travelled, O’Reilly would wrestle in Japan for TJPW in 2022. Rhia continues to operate in EVE as part of The Uprising along with Skye Smitson, Livvii Grace, and Nightshade.

Carmel Jacob

One of the most unapologetic wrestlers in Scotland, Carmel Jacob was never short of a word to say.

Whether it was teaming with Sara as The Glamour Gym, or battling names like Gail Kim, Toni Storm, and even Liam Thomson, Jacob left a lasting impression on the Scottish wrestling landscape.

In 2016, Carmel announced her retirement but before hanging up the boots, she would win the ICW Women’s Championship that year, and is still the longest reigning champion with a total of 322 days.

Her final match would take place at The SSE Hydro in a match with Viper and Kay Lee Ray.

Now Carmel does her fighting for equality as an educational psychologist.

Leah Von Dutch

Canadian Leah Von Dutch, and later renamed Leah Vaughn, would find success in the USA and Canada, winning championships in CLASH, MCW, XBW, and PWA.

Following a tour for Stardom in 2016, Leah made an appearance in NXT in a losing effort against Ember Moon.

Her last recorded match is from 2019 for SHINE with Vaughn now being a mother of three, and owner of The Crafty Loon, a craft shop in Ontario, Canada.

Ayesha Ray

The Amazon Ayesha Ray, is now a regular in Japan as part of SEAdLINNNG under the name Amazon.

In 2017, as Ayesha Ryamond, she would compete in the inaugural WWE Mae Young Classic representing England, she would lose in the first round to eventual winner Toni Storm.

Owner of Renegade Wrestling Dojo in Glasgow, and still active in wrestling, “Big Fem Vader” is currently causing havoc in Japan whether it’s in SEAdLINNNG, Sendai Girls, or Ice Ribbon.

Kirsty Loveign

Returning to her Kirsty Love moniker shortly afterwards, Love has continued to be active in the UK wrestling following a brief hiatus in 2019.

Mainly wrestling in RAD:PRO with journeys to Scotland for Reckless Intent Wrestling, and more recently Clyde Valley Wrestling.

A former UK Wrestling Women’s Champion, Love is also part of the core roster for Renegade Wrestling Dojo with a recent series of matches against Ronnie Knocks.

Lisa Fury

This was the final recorded match (on Cagematch) for Lisa Fury.

However, she recently made a return for UK Wrestling against Dani Brooks.


Better known today as Sirena Rose, Rose continued to wrestle around Scotland either as a singles wrestler or part of The Glamour Gym.

Taking a break in 2018, and a further hiatus in 2022. Before her second break she held both the Women of Reckless and FCW Women’s Championships.

‘The Khaleesi of the Chick Kick’ Sirena returned to wrestling earlier this year, immediately picking up where she left off by winning the Fair City Wrestling Women’s Championship for the second time.

Sakura Lily

Sukara Lily’s wrestling record ended in 2014. However, with a little digging, Lily returned as Lola La’Roux in 2017, as far as I could find, for Falling Starr Wrestling and Ultimate British Wrestling with knee injuries hampering her wrestling career.

Outside of wrestling, Lola has recently competed in adult gymnastics competitions.

Blue Nikita

The Greek-born, Germany based wrestler’s last noted match on Cagematch was 2018 against Amazon Ayesha Ray for Germany Wrestling Federation.

She remains active on social media sharing the latest announcements from GWF.

Erin Angel

Erin Angel wrestled in Bellatrix winning their women’s championship, and became a regular for EVE, winning the EVE Tag Team Championships with Jetta, before taking a break in 2019 to become a mother.

Angel returned to EVE in 2022 to reunite with Jetta.
