Two men in their forties were at their high school reunion and while holding a cup of punch in their hands and mentally walking down memory lane, one mentioned how he remembered how the other raced down the sidelines 60 yards for a touchdown.

His classmate smiled at the compliment and expressed, “Wow that was freshman year in high school. You really have a great memory. The thing is though, I didn’t run for the touchdown. I missed the tackle as the opposing player ran 60 yards for a touchdown.”

Memories do fade and get blurred, even if the heart is in the right place.

You can close your eyes to reality but not to memories.………Stanislaw Jerzy Lec

Most of us have vivid memories regarding some of the great competitive contests of the past with the companies that made female submission wrestling history. A fantastic company that often comes to mind is Fighting Style on the beach in Greece and at the Berlin Expo. article, photo article, photo

Our memories can fade but if we were astute enough to preserve some of the matches, then we can re-live some wonderful times.

We didn’t know how good we had it.

Femcompetitor Magazine has written about the many beautiful girls of Fighting Style and while we are about to focus on two sexy girls that we have written about before, we didn’t feature these particular matches.

KARINE VS DANNI article, photo article, photo

Karine is one of my all-time favorite wrestlers from Germany or anywhere else. She is as intense as they come and not politically correct when it comes to battle. We have written about her before so we won’t repeat ourselves here.

Sporting a pink bottom and sea blue top, Karine very confidently began to circle Danni.

Karen’s opponent, the dark brunette Danni, was not one of the top fighters at the Berlin Expo but she was very tenacious. Adorned in yellow shorts and a sexy black top, she was in no way intimidated by Karine.

The two circled each other when Danni made the first aggressive move and leaped upon Karine and took her down.

Karine would not be intimidated.

Once on the ground, it took some time before either beautiful girl could take control.

Until one did, both girls tried to hand smother one another.

As you might guess, Karine eventually gained control, at first sitting on Danni’s chest as she held her hands tight. article, photo article, photo

Then as often is Karine’s pattern, she pushed forward with a brutal hold and she sat on Danni who was prostrated sideways.

Now on top, it was time for Karine to bring the pain and bring it she did, forcefully pressing her knee down on Danni’s head and then twisting her arm before Danni couldn’t take it anymore and submitted.

The next round saw our testy and at times smug gorgeous Germanic Princess growing in confidence. Similar to before, the two girls were circling each other but this time Danni was far more cautious and began back pedaling.

Once they engaged, it was Karine’s round to take and she began to dominate the raven haired maiden and trapped her in a crushing body scissors to which Danni submitted, sat for a moment, teared up, cried and walked away.

What a forceful Karine memory. article, photo article, photo

Memories of our lives, of our works and our deeds will continue in others.…..Rosa Parks

NIKKI FIERCE VS DANNI article, photo article, photo

Nikki Fierce has a great personality and has always been a fan favorite. It was time for Danni to go into battle again. Femcompetitor Magazine loves Nikki and we wrote about her to express it.

On paper, given how well Danni performed against Karine it seems this should be very competitive. We will soon find out.

Memories have huge staying power, but like dreams, they thrive in the dark, surviving for decades in the deep waters of our minds like shipwrecks on the sea bed.….J. G. Ballard

Nikki was in control of this match right from the beginning and it wasn’t a matter of if she was going to submit Danni, it was a matter of when. article, photo article, photo

Once she had Danni on the mats, it seemed like déjà vu all over again. Once Nikki trapped Danni in a body scissors, it was over quickly.

Round two saw Nikki very confident. article, photo article, photo

This time they didn’t even circle one another before Nikki was ready to pounce on Danni. She began to jump in one place and then lunged towards Danni.

Danni fought her off valiantly, at one point even having Nikki clasped behind the neck.

Soon Nikki figured out what she was doing and began to take control of the match. Once she had Danni on the mats it was time for another body scissors and Danni submitted in excruciating pain.

I’ve never tried to block out the memories of the past, even though some are painful. I don’t understand people who hide from their past. Everything you live through helps to make you the person you are now.……Sophia Loren article, wikimedia photo article, wikimedia photo

In regards to the above quote by one of the most beautiful and classy actresses of all time,  Sophia Loren, while it’s reasonable to agree with her thoughts, we can understand why sometimes a person can block out harsh and sad memories from the past. Yes it makes them the person they are today but………

What if they don’t like who they are today?

What if, until they turn things around, they have to swim in failure?

This is what makes the memories of the female submission wrestling world so special because it reminds us of when things were going well as least in terms of escaping our everyday, sometimes stressful life.

It also showcases some wrestlers we will never see compete again.

For most of us, the memories are virtually always good. There is no desire to block anything out but instead savor them. article, photo article, photo

At the time, we may have taken for granted what was in front of our faces, perhaps not then appreciating how the passing of time makes certain moments so precious. Aren’t you extremely happy now about some of the even average matches from the past that you kept in your library?

Karine, Nikki and Danni like many of our industry stars are not very active today.

When they were active though, what wonderful memories they delighted us with.
