The Independent wrestling circuit has seen the women stepping up in the past fifteen years. We have current WWE superstars who were part of that spark such as Sasha Banks, Bayley, Shayna Baszler, and Ember Moon. These women came from a spark in independent wrestling that started nearly fifteen years ago.
WWE went through a period of sub-par women wrestlers around that time, and a shortage of performers during the Divas title era. Names like Amber O’Neal, Kacee Carlisle, LuFisto, and Mickie Knuckles popped up as pioneers for raising the bar in the independent circuit.
You probably enjoy them on YouTube or even go to their shows. Today we have seen no slow down of the women’s division that shows us what it truly means to be a wrestler. Aria Blake is a woman who has been nothing short of spectacular, and for her young age of 23 has a skill set and maturity that is rare.
What makes Aria so special is what a spark she is in the ring. Every part of the ring used to her advantage, and she is truly a ring general. She can work every part of the wrestling ring to ensure her victory. She is wise beyond her years and has a similar ring presence as to former NWA Women’s champion Kacee Carlisle with being a ring general.
That kind of maturity and drive is exactly why she is an automatic prospect to be in NXT someday. So many wrestlers at her age are still trying to find themselves, but Aria has found herself and is only going to keep improving at a terrifying rate that should be deemed very unusual for someone as young as herself.
Aria improving gracefully will only lead to trouble for whoever she steps in the ring with. As Aria puts the pieces together fans of the independent circuit, and fans of NXT should keep a strong eye out for the name Aria Blake is a spark that is proving herself to be a force in the ring. One thing is clear, this young talented competitor carries the torch of the rise of fifteen years ago.
Aria Blake represents the new generation and is the leading ring general for a new generation. We will without a shadow of doubt see her in an NXT ring in the future, it is not a matter of if, it is a matter of when. Keep a lookout, you never know when Aria Blake will show up on NXT to show the world, but until that time comes to look out for her now as she continues to be a strong presence in the ring.
