A few years ago, I helped facilitate a few cross-promotional events involving the Chicago Bliss and Resistance Pro Wrestling. I am very happy to have helped, but to be honest, it was a no-brainer.
Both sides took to it immediately, as have the fans of both. Looking at their fan bases, you can see a lot of similarities, just like there are similarities between the organizations. In short, it just made sense.
This produced some of the most fun I have had with either group. It was so much fun for me, but I also saw both sides and both fan bases having a good time. Seeing the ladies of the Bliss as Lumberjills in a match will always be one of my great memories.
I have written before that I think the Bliss women would like to actually get in on the action. Why not? They are athletic and tough. Of course, they are not trained wrestlers and I know what goes into being a pro wrestler. People don't just jump in and start wrestling matches. Still, I think there could be a place for the Bliss to get involved. Until then, they seem happy on the gridiron, where they have won two of the last three Legends Football League titles, while appearing in four straight championship games.
