Wrestler’s Spotlight #6: Vanity

Vanity is a wrestler of the indy circuit who likes the finest things. Any major promotion from WOW to WWE is a fit for the superstar.

Certain wrestlers really push the bounds and have no limits for what they can do in the ring. Confidence in the business of wrestling is everything and some may have higher confidence than others. There is one superstar that has such high confidence that it shines in everything she does in the ring and beyond. This superstar who has the spotlight on her for this segment is known as Vanity.

She is one of the hungriest stars to have ever stepped in the ring. Even when she gains a little success, she is always looking for ways to step it up more. She has that combination of confidence and a high work ethic. She will never settle because she knows how good she is in the ring. She keeps going hard with something to prove on a nightly basis.

First impressions of Vanity:

The first thing that stood out the first time ever seeing Vanity was the fact she always held her head up high. She is not any ordinary wrestler; she is one that likes to make a strong and lasting impression for those who may be viewing her for the first time and for those who have been faithfully watching her.

It became clear that she is a leader in and out of the ring and she can bring out the best in anyone.

What Vanity brings every night:

She brings a whole lot of power in the ring, not just power with her attitude, but physical power. She has crazy leg strength that gives her an advantage with every strike and move she makes. She may be one of the strongest to step in the ring today.

There is no wasted movement from Vanity, and she uses that leg strength to the fullest to dominate her opponent or create an advantage. The leg strength comes full circle to knock her opponent for a loop with one of her notable moves called the Cookie Cutter, which is a very strong kick that could make a forty-yard field goal.

Matchup: Vanity Vs Corrine Mink

Notable appearances:

Evolve, Queens of Combat, WSU, SHINE.

The Future:

She has a unique attitude that reflects who she is and that is a gold mine for promotions. She is a competitor with a solid identity and stays true to it with a strong ring presence.

Vanity likes a new challenge and thrives on pushing herself to the very limit in the face adversity. She ends up stronger than she was before as she takes on the challenge. She always carries that chip on her shoulder with something to prove to someone and she will carry that same hunger and drive anywhere.

She is a large diamond that shines brighter than any other diamond in the circuit today. The question is where could this diamond end up? Women of Wrestling? NWA? Impact? AEW? WWE and NXT? She has such natural and fluid ability in the wrestling ring that she is someone who will fit comfortably with ANY major promotion and shine no matter where she goes.

Most wrestlers are polished and destined for greatness for certain promotions, but Vanity is just an all-around superstar who will have that shock factor follow her no matter where she goes.

Whether a fan knows her already or is new to her career, her driven attitude will lead to bigger things no matter where and no matter who she goes against. Follow her journey on Instagram and see where the charismatic cookie-cutter continues to set a blaze of glory all around the world.

A Writer’s Journey: Why blogging about Wrestling means everything

This week will be a new wave of Wrestler’s Spotlight segments, but this is why blogging Wrestler’s Spotlight means everything to me as a writer.

The wrestling world has changed in so many ways, and it’s only going to keep changing as time goes by. The wrestling world has so much talent that it is almost impossible to keep up. Even if a person was to watch wrestling every day of the week, they will still likely miss some talent that has performed.

That’s why I have started doing segments called the Wrestler’s Spotlight. It is a segment that I take great pride in writing 2-3 times a week. Before I was ever a writer, I wanted to be a wrestler, had it all planned and did my homework to train right after I graduated high school.

Life had other plans after I hurt my knee. Even though my dreams changed, I turned to my other passion of writing. My love for wrestling continued to grow. That love turned into wishing that I was more involved with wrestling in some way.

After seeing negative posts by fellow writers and major outlets that were focused on news for the sake of clicks and in some cases, tried to tear down a wrestler with nasty rumors. The positive was a few and far in between.

That’s the thing about wrestling that I have observed, writing can build someone up, and it can tear someone down. It even hit home with a few that I even interact with daily. The number of journalists who take it upon themselves to spread something just for a wrestler to retweet and shoot down a rumor should be enough to show a lack of credibility.

It has been years since I went to school for journalism and to be honest, I don’t have credentials as a degree-holding journalist, but I became a writer. Working on scripts, blogs, and anything creative while gaining my bachelor’s degree in creative writing. I decided to use that to my advantage with blogs.

There are many routes to take creatively and it all started with an actress by the name of Stephanie Andujar who caught my eye with her entertaining YouTube channel StephA: One Woman Show. After the interview with Stephanie, I moved on to interviewing wrestlers.

A wrestler by the name of Shayla Hyde also known to some as Joan King has a way of presenting ideas without even realizing it. As a friend and top support during the earliest days freelancing, she showed support and her support continued when I wanted to branch out on my own.

As time went by, things only got worse with so-called journalists and rumor mills by larger websites. It was time for something to change and it broke my heart seeing it. People read a headlined and determined they had enough of the websites and journalists.

There are so many talented wrestlers who are out in the industry who may not be given the spotlight, because websites opt for juicy gossip, as opposed to focusing on the best part of wrestling that people may or may not know.

That’s where the idea of Wrestler’s Spotlight was taken. It’s a small platform made by me with the hope of showing people five simple questions from the perspective of a fan. These five simple questions and sections are all it takes to get to know them as a competitor in the ring and what makes this individual special as a wrestler.

All the answers will always vary from wrestler to wrestler and it will capture their individual in-ring personalities and how they perform in the ring.

My hope is to spread the messages and display their work so fans may be able to keep up with the best competitors that the independent circuit has to offer. if one fan who may not know them suddenly finds something else positive to watch out for, then it is a success in my eyes.

The goal is to have at least 100 Wrestler Spotlight segments to share wrestlers and display their talent in full glory. Stay tuned only on SocialMediaUncut.com for the next Wrestler’s Spotlight segments to see who is next to have the spotlight shine bright on them.

The greatest thing about the wrestling community on social media is that it can introduce you to wrestlers from all around the world. It’s easier to come on board with amazing talent on their journey that may be new or talent that has been around for years being viewed for the first time as a fan.

While looking out for talent, there was a mysterious wrestler that was the first time and gives a new meaning to having a style in the ring. That’s why this wrestler’s spotlight is focused and shining bright on Luscious Latasha.
