History[edit]

The company was founded by Sweet Saraya in 2005 as the World Association of Women's Wrestling, a sister company to her husband Ricky Knight's World Association of Wrestling.[1] The name was later changed to Bellatrix Female Warriors, as bellatrix is latin for "female warrior".[1] The company trains their own wrestlers, as well as hosts international talent.[1][3] Trainees are taught traditional British catch wrestling.[1] In addition, shows are promoted via video on demand or internet pay-per-view (iPPV).[1][4][5]
