Midnight Girl Fight Preview: Randi West

Girl Fight Wrestling has granted Eat Sleep Wrestle total access to the roster for its second midnight show, Midnight Girl Fight 2: Howdy, Pilgrim! Today is part eight of this series, featuring Randi West.    

I don’t know how many Girl Fight shows Randi West has missed in the past, but I know if she wanted, she could go back and fix that. She can do it, because she is a time traveler.

The muscle of the time bandit trio known as Bomb Shelter is always a fan favorite wherever she goes. She fears no opponent, male or female, and she can take as much as she can dish out.

Randi is one of the rare women who has no trouble getting booked on all-male shows, but she truly enjoys promotions like Girl Fight. “I love the positive energy that is present in both the locker room and the crowd. Everyone is there to have fun, there is no drama. The group of women on the roster are hungry and talented.”

Randi sees Girl Fight as one of many promotions that have changed the perception of women’s wrestling. “We are no longer just a side show or a mini act to enhance the men. We are The Show.”

Randi’s opponent is a new face to Girl Fight and the wrestling business at large. Alice has been training with Randi at the Bomb Shelter’s home base, and the teacher couldn’t speak more highly of the student. “She is so talented for being 16 years old, I think that she will surprise a lot of people. She has this very innocent young look to her but when the bell rings she turns into a fierce competitor. After all she was trained by me.”

Now, there have been rumors circulating about a book the Bomb Shelter plans to release in a the near future, a volume that will pull back the curtain on their time traveling exploits. I had to ask Randi, and she was eager to confirm the story.

“Bomb Shelter will be releasing a young adult novel based on our adventures throughout space and time. The book includes other wrestlers such as Sugar D, Rich Swann, Thunderkitty, Satu Jinn, The Hooligans and Pondo. We found an amazing writer to help us put our idea into reality. I am a huge fan of books. Reading helped me thru times in my life that nothing else could. Books are a great way to step out of your reality for a few minutes and experience some magical escape, even if it’s just a few chapter.. I’m so excited about this product and its release. I cant wait for 2019.”

Getting back to Midnight Girl Fight, Randi is hopeful that the unusual bell time will actually draw more fans than normal. “We have so many amazing fans. GF wants to make sure that everyone of them gets the opportunity to see us perform. Some fans are unable to make the 7pm shows because of work or various reasons. This is our way of sharing with those fans as well.”

Fans can see Randi and more at Midnight Girl Fight 2 on November 21 at the Arena in Jeffersonville, Indiana, 1416 Spring Street. Bell time is at 11:59 PM.
