They’ve also been one of the only promotions in the UK to bring in big names from Japan such as Emi Sakura, Riho, and the legendary Meiko Satomura & Manami Toyota.
Melt Video and Martin Hines filmed the documentary over the corse of EVE’s Babes With The Power two day event which saw them crown a new Pro Wrestling EVE Champion in Sammi Jayne after she defeated Kay Lee Ray in the finals. Sammi won the title after current champion Rhia O’Reilly had to vacate the title due to an injury.
