NECW debuts a brand new web series – The Best of WORLD WOMEN’S WRESTLING!
On this debut edition, we take you back to the match that inspired the creation of WWW almost 11 years ago. It took place May 10, 2002 between Japanese star, Sumie Sakai, making her very first appearance in the United States as she took on one of the hottest stars in NECW at the time, Mercedes Martinez.
The match was for the NECW-Jd’ Yoshimoto Pro Wrestling North American Women’s Championship – a title co-sanctioned by the two promotions. It was also a turning point event for both women, as well as NECW. The match would be the inspiration for the creation of World Women’s Wrestling four years later!
