The CoMo Derby Dames (CMDD) is a roller derby league based in Columbia, Missouri. Founded in 2007, the league currently consists of two teams, and a mixed travel team which competes against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded in January 2007 as the Destruction Junction Derby Dames by Adriene Weller, known as "Bitchy Valens", and Bex McNaughton, known as "Bex-plosion".[1] Its first bout, an intraleague contest, was held in July,[2] by which time the league already had more than fifty skaters.[3]

The league subsequently adopted its current name, and was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in July 2010,[4] and became a full member of the WFTDA in March 2012.[5]
