The obsession with law in Western Society is just that.
A great obsession.
Not only do people continually find themselves involved in a legal issue during their day life, they also like to watch it on television during their night life.
All the time.
When you navigate to Wikipedia, there are at least 140 pages devoted to American Legal Television Series.
So with all this national obsession and love hate relationships regarding lawyers why in the world did the super star Lady Wrestler Veda Scott leave law and pursue pro wrestling?
Because she loves it!
The industry can’t stop talking about her. At circa.com they smile, “Veda has become more than just a wrestler for ROH’s Women of Honor, she has also become an on-screen host, conducting many of their interviews.”
And given her accomplishments, we can understand why.
It’s time to go to the squared circle where Veda holds court and meet her.
Lindsey Kerecz is her sexy real name.
She has wrestled for promotions such as Ring of Honor, Shimmer Women Athletes and Absolute Intense Wrestling in the United States, winning the AIW Tag Team Championship. She has also wrestled internationally in both Canada and Japan.
Her earliest recorded match took place on 15 May 2011 at a Horizon Wrestling Alliance event, where she was defeated by Daizee Haze.
Here are her championships and accomplishments.
- Absolute Intense Wrestling
- AIW Women’s Championship (1 time)
- AIW Tag Team Championship (1 time) – with Gregory Iron
- Family Wrestling Entertainment
- FWE Women’s Championship (1 time, final)
- Inspire Pro XX Division Championship
- Inspire Pro XX Division Championship (1 time)
- Legacy Wrestling
- Legacy Wrestling Women’s Championship (1 time, current)
- Pro Wrestling Illustrated
The customers love her.
At the fantastic industry review site cagematch.net here are three.
“Veda’s quite a crafty and calculated underdog, which works both ways, whether she’s playing face or heel. Nice promo skills that comes from her background in law school and knows how to entice an audience whenever she wrestles or plays to them.”
“She is a smart girl and it shows during promos and segments. However, her work in the ring leaves a lot to be desired. I think she has a higher ceiling than she has showed us. And if she dedicates herself, maybe she gets there one day. She is an excellent valet.”
“She hasn’t gotten to show off her excellent in-ring skills as much in Ring Of Honor as she has in Shimmer or SHINE, but she is enormously entertaining in interviews, promos, even commentary. She’s a worthwhile addition to any company’s roster, and she’s only just getting started. I look forward to seeing bigger things from her.”
The enjoyable wrestling site rohwrestling.com adds, “A graduate of the ROH Dojo under Delirious and Daizee Haze, Veda Scott might be newer to the sport…but her knowledge of professional wrestling is anything but immature. After two decades of just watching from the sidelines, Veda knew she had to get the rest of the story firsthand – even if it meant a few bumps and bruises along the way.”
Our gorgeous Lady Pro has come a long way.
It’s time to visit her roots.
Founded in 1636, and one of the oldest cities in the United States.
Providence was founded by Roger Williams, a religious exile from the Massachusetts Bay Colony. He named the area in honor of “God’s merciful Providence”, which he believed was responsible for revealing such a haven for him and his followers to settle. The city is situated at the mouth of the Providence River, at the head of Narragansett Bay.
The great global travel site Lonely Planet never feels alone in Providence. They invite, “Once destined to become an industrial relic, Providence’s fate was spared when Buddy Cianci, its then controversial two-time mayor, rolled out a plan to revitalize the downtown core by rerouting subterranean rivers, reclaiming land and restoring historic facades. It created a city where history’s treasures are integrated into a creative present, not simply memorialized; where three centuries of architectural styles are unified in colorful urban streetscapes that are at once bold, beautiful and cooler than cool.”
Very forward thinking.
Did you know there is a huge student population in Providence? Here is why.
Brown University is a private Ivy League research university in Providence, Rhode Island, United States, founded in 1764 as “The College in the English Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.”
At its foundation, Brown was the first college in the United States to accept students regardless of their religious affiliation.
The University’s neighborhood is a federally listed architectural district with a dense concentration of Colonial-era buildings. On the western edge of the campus, Benefit Street contains “one of the finest cohesive collections of restored seventeenth- and eighteenth-century architecture in the United States”.
Look at this unbelievable statistic.
Undergraduate admissions are highly selective, with an acceptance rate of only 9 percent for the class of 2020, according to the university.
Here is another intriguing report.
The Women’s College in Brown University, known as Pembroke College, was founded in October 1891. When it merged with Brown in 1971, the Pembroke Campus was absorbed into the Brown campus.
At brown.edu they punctuate, “With its talented and motivated student body and accomplished faculty, Brown is a leading research university that maintains a particular commitment to exceptional undergraduate instruction.”
The community seems to be on the same team.
At providenceri.com Mayor Jorge O. Elorza summarizes well, “We will move our City forward by creating a government that is open, accessible, and easy to navigate for everyone who lives, works, and visits Providence. In the coming weeks and months, we will realign our departments to better serve our residents, and create new opportunities for me, my staff and department directors to spend time in our neighborhoods listening to the concerns of residents.”
Veda is really from a special place, wouldn’t you agree?
Becoming a lawyer might be in her future. Given her charisma maybe we’ll watch her on TV in another Lawyer driven television franchise.
But for now, it’s all about the wrestling and we are so ecstatic.
In an extensive interview with sportingnews.com Veda is clear as to why wrestling is her first choice. “I was the biggest wrestling fan and still am. I just love all aspects of professional wrestling. I used to watch it obsessively, catalog tapes obsessively. I still do the same thing, watching everything I can get my hands on.”
