The latest and greatest in women's wrestling

Wrestler Of The Year | Su Yung


When thinking of women who had a great 2017, one of the first names that came to my mind was Su Yung. Not only is she the current reigning Queens of Combat Champion she also holds the GirlFight Championship, ICW Women’s Champion, Kuiji Double Danger Tandem Tag Team Championship, and FEST Wrestling Championship. But that’s only the titles she currently holds. This past year she also held the WSU Spirit Title and ACW American Joshi Championship. That’s a heck of a lot of titles to hold in ONE year.

In the beginning of the year, Su started out as one of, if not the hottest acts in SHINE Wrestling as she continued to climb up the card and time and time again having the stand out matches on every SHINE card she was a part of which really became evident once news of her leaving SHINE came out as many fans flocked to social media denouncing the now-defunct FloSlam subscription service.

The undead queen continued her reign of terror in the state of Florida, holding onto the FEST Wrestling title, battling opponents such as Veda Scott, Jessicka Havok, Akane Fujita, and more while also capturing the Kuiji Double Danger Tandem Tag Team Championship, and won the vacant ICW Women’s Championship against Dynamite DiDi.

Yung also traveled quite a bit this year, wrestling for several promotions in the UK such as Lucha Forever, Southside, and Kamikaze Pro during the start of the fall before wrestling in Spain for RCW.

While she lost her Spirit title in WSU, she did score a big win in the first ever War Games match in the promotion and later on in the year teamed with Blackwater to win the King & Queen Of The Ring intergender tag team tournament. But that wasn’t the only tournament she won. In June she won the 9th Annual ACW American Joshi Queen Of Queens Tournament in Texas defeating the likes of Sage Sin, Angel Blue, and Dulce Garcia (yes, THAT one).

Su continued to reign supreme in Queens of Combat, defending her title and even gaveKennadi Brink her final match in the promotion before she went to WWE.

Su Yung’s unique charisma and superb in-ring work has taken her so far in 2017. Ever since becoming the undead queen her career has skyrocketed and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us in 2018.
