Santana Garrett continues to be RED hot in the world of pro wrestling. In her young career she has been featured in many of the top wrestling promotions in the country including WWE: NXT, TNA PPV’S, SHIMMER and SHINE. Fans have been thrilled to see Santana G grace the pages of Pro Wrestling Illustrated and with her being featured as the cover girl for the Ring Sirens December issue the magazine has been selling like crazy.
With the popularity and beauty of Santana Garrett, it can be easily forgotten that she is a women that is very focused on being the top female wrestler in the world today. She possess all three qualities that every wrestler would like to have, talent, charisma and the looks. That has led to success in single victories and tag team championships at WOW with partner Amber O’Neal.
Yet, her biggest test is set to come as she is seeking to capture a title that she has yearned to have for years, the NWA Women’s World Championship currently held by the talented Barbi Hayden. If Santana G is to accomplish her goal to be the NWA Women’s Champion, she will have earned it as Hayden is as good as they come. Hayden has been a fighting champion ever since defeating Kacee Carlisle at NWA Houston and has a victory against Santana Garrett early on, but Santana Garrett has shown that she is able to recover from a loss and return even better.
The NWA is on the upswing with a NWA President Bruce Tharpe regaining a presence in Japan and classic matches that include the likes of SATOSHI KOJIMA defeating the “IRONMAN” Rob Conway for the NWA World title, and quite possibly the most talented group of wrestlers in the NWA top 10 in years.
Many believe that Santana Garrett is the future of the sport, but she can only be as good as her opponents and the feuds that she has. Flair had Steamboat, Hogan had Andre and Stone Cold had Vince… Is it only fitting that Garrett has Hayden…
Could 2014 be the year for Women’s wrestling in the NWA? If Santana Garrett has anything to say about it, it will. Look for NWA World Champion Barbi Hayden vs. Santana Garrett to heat up this spring near a ring near you.
