The independent wrestling scene is filled with wrestlers that have unique skill sets that make them stand out. The action wrestlers bring on a nightly basis sends a high adrenaline rush to the fans watching. It doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s nonstop movements and spots, it’s all about what the wrestler brings that makes it high energy.

A wrestler can pace themselves but be fast because of their certain strengths in the ring. That’s what makes this wrestler Kenny Steele special. He brings energy wherever he goes.

First impressions of Kenny Steele:

He is not just a striker, but a quick striker. There is no wasted movement and his strikes are calculating to never miss their target. When he’s outmatched size and strength-wise most of the time, he must make every strike count and make it fast to swing momentum or keep momentum.

It’s not to say Kenny isn’t a high flyer or a strong grappler, but the real story in the ring is how his biggest strength in the ring tends to be his striking ability. When he relies on his strikes, it is the difference between him winning or losing a match.

MPX wrestling, VIP wrestling, MWPW, EWA wrestling, NAWA, BCWA, DFW all pro wrestling

The Future:

When thinking about superstars with a lot of mileage on their bodies, immediately The Miz from WWE comes to mind. Kenny has that same energy and mileage, which is why his future is truly bright.

That’s an asset for any wrestling company that wants a superstar who will always be there and can always depend on. The company that Kenny would probably fit in best is with Impact Wrestling or even NXT because of his mileage.

Some companies will appreciate Kenny’s style more than other companies. No matter where he goes, he will always be the charismatic counter striker that can win his way out of tight jams.

Wrestler’s Spotlight #4: Jayel Cotto

The Indy circuit of wrestling has had success and could be a candidate for WWE or enhance AEW and their women’s division.

There are wrestlers who keep fans on their toes and have a degree of unpredictability. The best kind of wrestlers are ones who may not be the biggest or strongest but willing to go the extra mile to win. Even though they may lose, they compete and continue to compete until the final bell rings. That brings us to Jayel Cotto who brings all those qualities and more.

Jayel Cotto is tough as nails and a determined competitor. Whether she is the favorite to win or not, she never goes down without a fight. Her strong strikes with her educated feet could strike at any moment during the match, which makes her an entertaining competitor to watch.

Jayel may not be a dominator in the ring, but all it takes is one firm powerful strike to change the match completely in her favor.

First impressions of Jayel Cotto:

The first time seeing her, her swift strikes were what stood out. She has other pieces to her game, but the strikes make a difference between her being dominated in the ring or completely turning the match around. Her determination with her striking ability shows that even if she is dominated in the ring, no one can count her out of any match.

What Jayel Cotto brings every night:

Jayel is not exactly an underdog, nor is she a dominant force, she is someone who will do what it takes to win, she takes a licking and keeps on ticking. Any competitor in the ring with her is up for a long fight.

Her powerful strikes and her tendency to hit a lethal roundhouse kick at any angle is as sudden as an RKO from Randy Orton. She will always have those kicks as an equalizer in matches where she is outmatched.

Avoiding a sudden strike from Jayel may be easier said than done. She does not tire easily and has very high durability in the ring with a high threshold for taking punishment in the ring to keep the crowd and her opponent on their toes.

Matchup: Jayel Cotto Vs Masha Slamovich

Notable appearances:

Has had a WWE try-out and gone to Puerto Rico to compete.

The Future:

Jayel is a true competitor and wherever she goes no matter who is on the roster, she will compete. She doesn’t care if a person may outmatch her in some way, she will give her all even if it means just waiting for the right moment for a strike.

The intriguing aspect of her having a WWE tryout in the past is that some of the greatest had multiple tryouts with WWE or other major companies. Jayel is quickly becoming one of the best pure strikers in the circuit and has a strong case for displaying her skills to WWE, AEW, and impact.

That’s the kind of competitor that would be a great contender for the NXT women’s title or a Knockouts championship with Impact. Someone who knows how to win and is a great potential challenge for the champion and will work hard and keep fans on the edge of their seat with just being one strike away from victory no matter who she is going against.

All of us will be pulling for another tryout or signing with another company in the future because she is a fighter and this fighter delivers every single match, which fans will love with her unpredictability and competitive nature in the ring and will get the crowd fired up night after night.

Stay tuned via her Twitter @JayelCotto to show support and follow her journey as she fights her opponents. Without a doubt we will see her on television and that same feeling will be amplified on television on a weekly basis whether it’s WWE, Impact, or AEW.

Wrestler’s Spotlight #3: Masha Slamovich

After appearing on Impact Wrestling and going toe to toe with Jordynne Grace, Masha Slamovich has continued her rise.

It’s that time for yet another wrestler in the spotlight and this wrestler is special. This wrestler’s television debut left a lasting impression and she made an immediate impact. Even though it was a one-time appearance, there is a lot to her, and she gave fans a big taste the first chance she had.

This wrestler is known as Masha Slamovich. She is one of the most unexpected surprises. Coming across a wrestler with such a strategy to her ring presence is what made her special from the very beginning.

Only a handful of wrestlers have appeared on television in a one-off appearance and left a lasting impression. Masha has made it clear that she is on a mission and the whole wrestling world needs to take notice.

First impressions of Masha Slamovich:

The first time seeing her on television, her disciplined demeanor caught my attention. While Masha was in the ring with Jordynne Grace, it didn’t feel like someone only there for a one-time appearance. It felt like Masha was making a debut for a long-term mission with Impact Wrestling.

After the match, there were literally searches for answers to if she will make an appearance next week. Didn’t want that appearance from her on Impact to be her last and wanted more from her. When there is another confrontation with Jordynne Grace again, it will be must-see television or pay-per-view.

What Masha Slamovich brings every night:

In the ring, Masha is very cunning and thrives on strategy in the ring. If she sees fit for being a brawler, submission artist, or grappler in the ring, she will use the strategy that will produce the best results in the ring. Her style varies with who she is facing, and sometimes she will mix it up with different styles each time.

She will use her strategy for that night for her goal to hit her devastating tiger bomb on her opponent for the victory.

Matchup: Masha Slamovich Vs Kasey

Notable appearances:

Impact Wrestling.

The Future:

Masha has brought something special that makes her a hot ticket for every promotion big and small. Whether she ends up on All Elite Wrestling, NXT, Impact, Women of Wrestling, or anywhere else. She will only raise the bar higher for whoever she goes against.

Masha’s presence with her strategy makes her a big gain or even a steal for any company. She has left a lasting impression and her sudden burst onto the scene makes her special. She has a lot of dream matches to be filled including Holidead, Tessa Blanchard, Jessie Jones, Jessicka Havok, and Shayna Baszler. These dream matches are just a few competitors signed with different companies.

Where will Masha go? We will see! No matter who signs her whether it’s Impact Wrestling realizing they need her after that strong match with Jordynne Grace a few months ago or a company realizing the endless dream matches for their respective brand, it will leave a lasting effect on the company.

Masha is here to stay, and she will continue to raise the bar higher each time she steps in the ring no matter where and no matter who it is. Her Twitter @mashaslamovich is filled with her matches and potential victims, you want to be on board for this journey because she will sign with a company and wherever she goes, she will conquer with this special story coming full circle.
