Top 5 US Indie Women That You're Sleeping On

After the Top 5 Tag Teams article turned out to be fairly popular, I figured I'd go ahead and put out the next companion piece sooner than later. Yes, I do plan on doing several of these with varying subjects. This time, let's go ahead and take a look at five of the best women in the United States indie scene that too many of you are missing out on.

-KimberLee
The princess herself, KimberLee is remains one of the best women in the indies. After leaving NXT, she has re-cemented herself as being one of the top talents in the game. You can see her most consistently by watching CHIKARA, which is sadly a big part of why she is on this list. CHIKARA, in general, gets overlooked a lot. 

Check her out:


-Leyla Hirsch
New Jersey's Leyla Hirsch has more than impressed me. With several years of amateur wrestling experience, Leyla brings her technicality and never-say-die attitude to the ring in a way that makes her seem more like a seasoned vet than a relative newcomer. CZW has been a major factor in her development, and once a few bookers finally recognize her talent, she'll be booked all over the country.

Check her out:


-Samantha Heights
Samantha is a student of oVe's Dave Crist, and tends to stick around the Ohio scene in general. A solid worker, Heights has the talent to go toe to toe with anyone put in front of her. Her viscous moveset and solid selling in particular helps make Samantha a worthwhile addition to the list, and I hope to see her continue to pop up anywhere she wants to go.

Check her out:


-Delilah Doom
Salem might be known mostly for how easily they give into panic, but Delilah Doom proves that the town can do some good things, too. One half of the standout, intergender team, DoomFly, Doom is easily one of the brightest stars on the indies. Her willingness to work any style against anyone, regardless of what junk they have in their trunks, Delilah has won over the hearts of anyone who has seen her in action.

Check her out:


-Priscilla Kelly
She went viral recently for some shock-and-awe spots but, regardless of your thoughts on tampons being used in a wrestling match, Priscilla is one hell of a worker. Coming up on her 4th year in the business, Kelly has been quickly rising up the ranks. The first ever SHINE Nova Champ, she also teams with husband, Darby Allin, from time to time, and has worked for promotions such as TJP and EVOLVE. She was involved in last year's Mae Young Classic, and is sure to be big deal sooner than later.

Check her out:


I strongly encourage you to check out more of their work, buy their merch, and become advocates in general for these amazing talents. Just remember, don't be a fucking creep.
