Alternative Wrestling Show has announced the addition of Notorious Nadi and Dynamite DiDi to their January 27, 2018 “Metal Night” show. Both will be making their debut with the promotion. They will be taking part in a four women elimination match, with Ruby Raze and Delilah Doom also taking part. Originally Ruby Raze was scheduled to face Mia Yim, however Yim had to be removed due to injury and will now be on the promotion’s June 30th show.

Notorious Nadi is a New York based wrestler who was trained by Johnny Rodz. She wrestles regularly for ACE and ECPW. Dynamite DiDi wrestles out of Florida and made a brief appearance at RISE 6 in South Gate earlier this month, taking part in a run-in to attack Cheerleader melissa.

They will be holding their annual “Apocalypta” show at the Imperial Beach Boys and Girls Club (the former home of FCW). The promotion last ran on February 25, 2017. They had a show scheduled for May 6, 2017 but it was canceled due to financial issues. They had also talked about running this past September but nothing came of it.
