The latest and greatest in women's wrestling

One to Watch 2018 | Charli Evans

Charli Evans made her debut in 2014 after training at Pro Wrestling Alliance in Australia.  ‘The Punisher’ Madison Eagles was one of her trainers, so you know she is good.  In 2015, she won the PWWA title along with her tag team partner Jessica Troy.  The PWWA title was defended by Charli and Jessica as a team as well as by Charli individually.  She co-held the title for almost 2 years, losing the title to former Champion Shazza McKenzie in June of this year.

In 2016, Charli was one of 4 women selected to represent IndyGurlz in the annual Global Conflict tournament.  2016 was IndyGurlz v Bellatrix and although she lost her singles match against Violet O’Hara, her team won the tournament including 4 on 4 match in the finals.  Evans made her first wrestling appearance outside of Australia earlier this year as a part of RISE 3: Medic, in Berwyn Illinois.  Charli and Jessica, The Blue Nation, competed against TNA Knockout Chelsea Green and indie standout Britt Baker, Fire & Nice.  The team impressed management enough for them both to earn spots on Shimmer volumes later in the weekend.  Charli had matches against Thunderkitty and Jessicka Havok and a tag team match with Troy against Delilah Doom & Leva Bates.

Her trip to Illinois, was not the end of her international travel however.  After the Rise/Shimmer weekend, Charli relocated to the United Kingdom.  She didn’t wait to make an impact in the UK, making a stop at Pro Wrestling EVE defeating Erin Angel and participating in a 4-way to crown a #1 contender for the EVE championship including Kay Lee Ray, Nina Samuels, and winner Leah Owens.  In September, Charli competed against Thunder Rosa at a BEW show for the AIWF Women’s International title. When RISE co-promoted a show with Bellatrix, Charli Evans participated on Team RISE again challenging Violet O’Hara.

In October, Charli received a big opportunity.  She was one of 8 women selected to participate in the Progress Women’s Championship #1 contender tournament.   In round 1, Evans defeated UK star Charlie Morgan.  In the semi-finals, she beat relative new comer Chakara.  In the final round of the tournament, Charli challenged the woman a lot of people thought would have been the inaugural Progress Women’s Champion, Jinny.  When Jinny was entered into this tournament, again, people thought she would be the eventual winner.  However, the Australian had other ideas earning the victory over one of the main women of Progress.  Later in October, Evans unsuccessfully challenged Champion Toni Storm for the title at Progress Chapter 56.

Charli, along with Jessica, would return to Berwyn for RISE 5: Rising Sun and Shimmer.  The Blue Nation made it known that they were not happy not getting matches in advance of the show and simply going over as “seminar talent”.  The pair earned an important spot on the show, teaming with the Legendary Aja Kong in the Joshi Warfare match.  Later in the weekend, The Blue Nation competed against the pairs of Solo Darling & Thunderkitty and Ashley Lane & Deonna Purrazzo as well as Charli getting a singles match against Candice LeRae.  After this outing, it was announced The Blue Nation were formally a part of the RISE roster.

2017 has been the beginning of big things for Charli Evans.  The Daily Mail did an article/interview about Charli and her career.  She has spent the year travelling winning big matches.  She is loud and isn’t afraid to yell at some fans.  While there isn’t much of her work on YouTube, if Charli Evans is wrestling on a show near you, it is going to be worth your time to get out to see her.  2018 is going to be her year.
