A sigh of relief scenario that often plays out in the sports world is the good fortune of a team having to play another who is on the rise early on in their progression and breathe an even larger sigh of relief that you played them when they weren’t really…well….them.

At least not who they will be later in the season on their ascending train ride to a title fight.

In the 2015 NCAA College Football season an argument could made that the Ole Miss Rebels who defeated the eventual National Champion, Alabama 43-37 on September 15, 2015 at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa were extremely glad they didn’t have to face them in late November when the Crimson Tide were making their run towards destiny.

In watching the short but brilliant career of the submission wrestler Cleopatra who wrestled in England out of the former London Wrestling Studios, this scenario played out when several years ago she met the now 2016 super star Mystique who is carving out massive victories in Germany against the likes of American champion Skylar Rene and countless victories in the United Kingdom against some of Britain’s best.

When Cleopatra met Mystique, right from the beginning the two went at it so intensely that within seconds they were off the mats. What surprised this reviewer was how early on she began to submit the brand new version of Mystique.

Our future British star would eventually get her sea legs and submit Cleopatra as well and this match went back and forth cementing Cleopatra as a very quiet but formidable opponent.

She had her easier matches to compliment her tougher ones, soon to be described.

Femcompetitor Magazine will review a few of them.

Epictetus was a Greek speaking Stoic philosopher. He was born a slave at Hierapolis, Phrygia, and lived in Rome until his banishment, when he went to Nicopolis in north-western Greece for the rest of his life.

Widely admired, respected and listened to, he was once quoted as expressing, “We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.”

If imitation is the highest form of flattery, we would say that Cleopatra is an Epictetus disciple.

She listens a lot more than she speaks.

VS MARILYN 

This writer had seen and heard of Cleopatra and knew of her talent and abilities. I had not heard of Marilyn who is blonde and very cute with a nice shape. Hmm, does she stand a chance against Cleopatra?

As soon as Marilyn enters the London Wrestling Studio room, she displays a sly smile, stands in front of the audience, introduces herself and then alerts them that she can speak a foreign language fluently.

Is she bragging or just showing off?

Either way, at that moment, I knew she was going to get creamed by Cleopatra.

Does Marilyn know how to say “OUCH!” in another language as well?

Cleopatra quickly began to go to work on her cranking out one submission after another. Our Romanian beauty trapped Marilyn in a reverse back breaker and reverse scissors forcing the sexy blonde to tap out both times.

Marilyn then smiles and pronounces to Cleopatra, “I’m going to get you this time.”

She certainly had her opportunities.

She sat on Cleo with a frontal school girl pin and Cleo escapes. Adorned in her very sensuous zebra striped bikini, Cleopatra goes on the attack and secures Marilyn in another excruciating back breaker.

Not content with back breakers she flattens Marilyn on the mats, sits on top of her and when Marilyn tries to lift Cleo off with her legs, the brunette grabs them and instead erotically locks Marilyn into a folding pin until she submits.

Later it was time for a powerful leg scissors across the body and Marilyn screamed for mercy again. The shapely blonde had another chance for brief glory when she had Cleopatra in a side body scissors but couldn’t hold it. The dark haired beauty escaped again.

We proclaim “Victoria” for Cleopatra.

VS SABLE

As expected when Cleopatra faced the unofficial LWS champion in Sable, it would be Sable’s to win. Instead of a fierce showdown, we received lots of bantering, tickling and talking during the match.

At one point Sable smiled, “You may be strong but how flexible are you?” She mostly controlled Cleo from the ground up.

Two talented girls for sure but the intensity was lacking.

She would face Sable twice and the way we could tell was the different attire. Cleopatra was often filmed in that erotic Zebra bikini and she did face Sable in that attire but she also faced her again in a black top and aqua blue briefs.

Cleopatra looks sexy in anything.

NO CONTEST

Cleopatra would square off against Empress in another friendly match. Empress had her moments but Cleo was never threatened.

Pandora from Australia is a thin, sexy and very feminine woman with nicely cropped stylish hair, who belongs many places……..except on the wrestling mats. 

Forgive me, but after taking one look at her, you would like to take her somewhere private and romantically dominate her.

She has PLEASE DOMINATE ME written on her fore head in passion fruit and Koala juice.

We thought about petitioning Australia to have Pandora placed on the endangered species list to protect her from other female wrestlers.

Maybe it was her competition but Pandora got injured by Mystique, no shame there and then was completely dominated by Cleopatra who seemed to love to trap the thin beauty from Sydney in crunching head scissors.

If you like watching a feminine, submissive woman get completely dominated by another than Cleo’s absolute mauling of Pandora would fit the bill.

She would also easily dispatch of Vixen from England as well.

VS MEDUSA – IT’S PERSONAL

Please meet Medusa.

She is a sexy, nicely thick red head with strong thighs that are begging to kick in the air while another beautiful woman is sitting on top of her in real competition and completely dominating her.

I don’t think that is on her resume.

Mystique was very happy to oblige her.

Cleopatra did it with a punctuation mark.

Medusa didn’t help her situation by violating the Epictetus ratio rule of two ears to one mouth.

Medusa loves to giggle and laugh and talk and talk and talk and…….

Not I mind you, but some people (other female wrestlers) find that annoying.

Something was going on in the audience as the girls seemed to be laughing at Medusa’s demise. Cleopatra trapped her in a long time body scissors, applied an elongated face sit with glee, and then powered her over with a combination head scissors and arm bar.

At one point it seemed Medusa was on the verge of tears.

VISITING PIPA L’VINN’S WRESTLING FACTORY

Ever the world traveler and adventurer, Cleopatra traveled to meet up with industry star Pippa L’Vinn and her girls.

Here is her match description against Venus. “Venus from the Wrestling factory takes on Cleopatra from LWS in this mat Based Submission match. Cleopatra is possibly the most experienced wrestler to come up with the LWS girls on this show so it was with great courage that Venus agreed to take her on. On paper Cleopatra should have a routine win but that would not be counting on the sheer guts of Venus who is determined to make her mark.”

Femcompetitor Magazine would agree that on paper, Cleopatra should be an easy winner but as you well know, you can’t always go by that. Isn’t that why we play the games?

A trip to the Factory would not be complete without Cleopatra meeting the super star herself in Pippa. Both women are at the top of their game as they meet in the ring.

Here is the link to the match: http://www.pippalvinn.com/pippalvinn.co.uk/dld_pages/handshakes/cleovspip.htm

UNFORGETTABLE CLEOPATRA

Cleopatra doesn’t seem to be wrestling much anymore. Too bad for that.

What this writer loved about Cleopatra was how she differentiated herself from other competitors on the mats but also in personal style.

She is absolutely gorgeous, beautifully shaped and quiet in spirit. She listens more than she speaks but when she does speak, like her wrestling, she has something very important to say.
