On Sunday June 26, 2016, Anarchy Championship Wrestling will host its eighth annual American Joshi Queen of Queens tournament. We covered who is competing in the tournament this year, you can click here to learn more about the competitors.
Today we are going to take a look at the upcoming tournament, the history of the tournament and the competitors who have competed in it.
A total of 29 (34 after the eighth tournament) different women have competed in this tournament all time and only one has won the tournament twice, Athena in 2012 and 2015. 2016 will be the first time that the tournament does not feature Athena (competed every year since 2010) or Su Yung (competed every year since 2012) since the debut of the tournament back in 2009. This will be Claudia Del Solis’ fourth time competing in this tournament, which will tie her for third most appearances, and Jessica James will tie Athena for most appearances in this tournament when she makes her sixth appearance.
The ACW Women’s Championship has been defended in three of the tournaments, 2010, 2014 and 2015. In the years 2014 and 2015, Su Yung and Athena successfully defended the title from the beginning to the end of the tournament respectively. In 2010, the title changed hands three different times en route to a tournament victory for Portia Perez.
No wrestler making their tournament debut has ever won the tournament (with the exception of the inaugural year 2009) and Jessicka Havoc(2012) and Barbi Hayden(2013) are the only two wrestlers to make it to the championship match in their tournament debuts. 5 different women (Christi Jaynes, Allie Kat, Laynie Luck, Sage Sin and Erica Torres) will have the opportunity to be the first woman to make their debut in the tournament and win it.
