The Change In Christina Marie

By Scott Fineout

It was a cold and snowy night on December 16, 2017. It made the name of PPW's latest show Sub-Zero make even that much more sense. It was on these snowy roads that Christina Marie made the trip from Albany, New York to begin proving herself in Hazleton. Her expectations low and her mind and body both in a good place. Marie was relatively new in the business back then and showed up in a positive attitude, ready to work and prepared for her debut match against Allie Recks, Sammi Pandora and Ariela Nyx.

Marie was confident from the beginning to the end of her match. Ariela Nyx would take the pin from Allie Recks that night en route to Recks successfully defending her championship. That wasn't the story of this night though. Instead, the attention was focused on the new red head who seemed to be able to dead lift everyone in the ring – at the same time.

Marie was indeed impressive that night. The use of her powerful skill set was unlike anything fans in Hazleton have seen from a female competitor and her legitimate athletic build made her quick in the ring as well. A marriage of power and speed that were unmatched in Hazleton now or ever.

Her loss was a setback to her title hopes but she was confident in the fact she had done everything she could do to try and force the outcome in her favor. It wasn't about the loss for Christina on this night, it was about making an impressive debut and showing PPW Management that she wouldn't be a head case.

She wasn't.

In fact, Christina Marie spent the better part of ten months with a smile on her face, slowly earning her way through the PPW Women's Division.

At PPW Respect in June of 2018 she defeated Leva Bates. It was an achievement for Marie and the staple win she needed to get over the hurdle of trying to impress the fans, the management and mostly herself.
