two years ago, I made my first trip to the Armory, to attend an Ultimate Surrender tag team match. it was to me, like going to Disneyland. getting to meet Matt, the models, and various other Kink personnel and forumers, who help make the site what it is, are fond memories I remember to this day.
it was in April 2011, that I made the decision to take another vacation, built around attending another Ultimate Surrender tag team match (scheduled for July 1). as we know, the match fell thru due to injuries, scheduling conflicts, etc. but I already had a backup plan in place.
around this time, I began corresponding with Cheyenne Jewel. I asked her if she wanted to meet up in Los Angeles while I was out there, but she suggested I come to Las Vegas, instead. it suited me just as well, b/c I have a friend from college who lives there. once I finalized my itinerary, I began recruiting more models, who I knew from Ultimate Surrender. Dia Zerva was no longer in Vegas, Dragon Lily agreed to wrestle, as did Ariel X (who flew in from LA)
I have been wanting to meet Dragon Lily for quite some time. she is the longest-tenured wrestler on the roster, and the only one left from the first season of Ultimate Surrender. she has the most all-time wins, and is the only model to ever win a 2-on-1 handicap match. her match with Mika Tan in 2005, was what originally got me interested in the site. totally off subject, but I saw a woman at the liquor store in Vegas who looked like she could be Mika’s sister. probably not, but who knows.
I saw Ariel X wrestle on the tag team circuit in October 2009. even tho she lost, it was an epic match. we talked briefly after the match, and I thanked her for giving me a shout-out in her post-match interview, after she defeated Vendetta for the Summer Vengeance III championship. as we chatted about Summer Vengeance, AX reminded me that I picked Brix to beat her way back in the 1/4 finals of Summer Vengeance II (2008) GUILTY AS CHARGED! hehehe
I didn’t know too much about Cheyenne Jewel, before she debuted at Ultimate Surrender. but over the past few months, she has clued me in on other sites she wrestles for. if u remember her match against Wenona, from a coupla months ago, she referred to Isis as the Goddess…of Sodomy, and the black metal fan in me turned into a giddy little school girl. big-ups to Cheyenne for bringing the mats!
the end result exceeded my greatest expectations. I filmed a coupla hours worth of them wrestling in 1-on-1 sessions, took some glamour photos of the ladies in various poses, and got a few group pics taken with them. to be able to work with three models who are not just the best on Ultimate Surrender, but the best in the world of competetive female wrestling, was an absolute thrill. I am by no means a professional photographer, but I was very pleased with the way the vast majority of photos and videos turned out. I’ve included some of my favourite pics at the bottom of this post. hands down, this was one of the best experiences of my life! I am huepow, follow your dreams! I GOTTA RAMBLE ON!!!
