As the year 2017 comes to an end the Squared Circle Sirens teams will be highlighting different wrestlers from across the globe that we feel have made an impact over the past 365 days! This isn’t a list or ranking of any sort, rather just a daily showcase of the wrestlers who made 2017 special in our eyes.
Delilah Doom started 2017 with a bang. In January, she got a title shot at the Phoenix of Rise Champion, Angel Dust, and received a match on WWE Smackdown against the Princess of Staten Island, Carmella. In February, she was a part of the tournament to crown the inaugural Sabotage Champion. Making it to the finals, Doom defeated Buggy Nova, Ray Lyn, and Ruby Raze is a four way elimination match to take home the gold. In March, Delilah defeated Allie Kat and Ivory Robyn to win the Inspire Pro XX Division Title, which had been vacated.
Between RISE 2 and RISE 3, Delilah Doom was one of the first six women announced to be part of the permanent roster, giving her consideration for their future events. RISE has been a big part of Delilah’s 2017. This summer, Delilah returned to Berwyn to take part in RISE 3, losing to Rosemary. The same weekend, she made her SHIMMER debut. Working three matches, she more than impressed. On volume 93, Delilah formed a team with Leva Bates defeating fellow RISE competitors Blue Nation. On Volume 95, Doom and Bates would get an opportunity to challenge for the SHIMMER Tag Team titles in a four way elimination tag match.
In September, Delilah got her first opportunity to wrestle in England. RISE and Bellatrix co-promoted Bellatrix 26/Rise 4 – Warriors RISE. Delilah unsuccessfully challenged champion Shotzi Blackheart for the Phoenix of RISE title. She also was able to debut for WAW in a Team Bellatrix v Team Rise match.
Back in the States, Delilah lost the Sabotage title to Heather Monroe in September, defeated Angelina Love at DWO Day of Destiny X, and was a part of the inaugural AAW Women’s Championship tournament. Doom defeated Veda Scott in the first round, but lost to Ivelisse in the semi-finals. The following weekend at RISE 5, Delilah was part of the Incursion of the Phoenix, a gauntlet match with 6 members of the permanent RISE roster and the winner of the match leaving the event as the Phoenix of RISE. An injury almost kept her out of the match, but she was able to not only compete in the match, but make her entrance into the match and pining Kikyo for the final elimination.
At SHIMMER in November, Delilah started the set of volumes with a surprise victory over The Mountain, Vanessa Kraven, earning her and tag partner Leva Bates a shot at the SHIMMER Tag Team belts. Formally announced as the Totally Tubular Tag Team, T4, Doom and Bates defeated champions Kraven and Blanchard earning her second title of the weekend. T4 would successfully defend the belts against Ashley Lane and Deonna Purrazzo, Team Hottest Free Agents, and Paradise Lost, Courtney Rush and Dust.
Success is not for the content. Just a couple of weeks after winning the Phoenix of RISE championship, Delilah successfully made her first title defense. In South Gate California at RISE 6, Doom defeated Rosemary in a cage match that proved to be a bloody affair. During RISE 6, owner Kevin Harvey announced that Delilah Doom was one of the first five members of the RISE roster that would make the journey to Tokyo, Japan for a joint RISE and Stardom show at Korakuen Hall in July 2018.
She is the Queen of Aerobic Style. She is a Champion in multiple companies. Delilah Doom is someone that everyone should be watching. She has found the perfect blend of comedy and toughness. If her 2018 is anything like 2017, she is going to be a household name in no time.
