Since defeating Katie Forbes at the Perth Classic for the AAW Women’s championship in August of this year, Singapore national Alexis Lee has proven to fans around the world that she belongs in the same breath as one of the best female wrestlers in the world. Since being crowned champion Alexis Lee has made a point to take on all challengers, already defeating former AAW Women’s champion Savannah Summers.
At SuperClash Alexis faced her biggest challenge yet in the monstrous AAW debutant Roxy Ryot!
Accustomed to being the underdog Alexis is no stranger to taking punishment, however, Ryot unleashed a physical tirade that totally overwhelmed the reigning champion. After Lee had been beaten literally from pillar to post and Ryot failed to follow the official’s instructions to yield so assessment could be made the champion, referee Adam McGillivary called a stop to the contest.
Confusion ensued as to whether the referee’s decision was ruled a ‘stoppage’, and as such Roxy Ryot should be awarded the AAW Women’s Championship; or the decision was a ‘no contest’ in which case the championship could not change hands. A ‘no contest’ was the final decision of AAW officials as the dust settled on SuperClash - a result of Roxy Ryot’s failure to follow referee’s instructions which led to Alexis Lee’s inability to continue.
As a result of the attack Alexis Lee will not be medically cleared to travel from her homeland of Singapore to defend her championship in Perth on December 2nd. You can rest assured that Roxy Ryot will not sit ideally by waiting for another opportunity, as she has made it clear to AAW that the situation will be addressed – and from what we know of Ryot so far, it seems her actions may speak louder than her words.
Be sure to be there live to see the AAW Women’s Championship plot thicken on December 2nd inside the Gate One Theatre at the Claremont Showgrounds. Tickets are available now at www.showtickets.com.au
