Entrance Description

The lights over the entrance change to pink and purple and pulsate in time with the opening of “Gunboat.” The arena then falls black for a second just before the song truly kicks in. As it does, the lights come back up showing Laura, wearing a red leather jacket, full-length black wrestling pants that are almost form-fitted with black, nearly knee-high boots on, standing at the entrance, back turned to the audience and head down. After a few beats, she pivots around, waits a couple beats more then lifts her head. After a piercing stare at the ring, she makes her walk towards it as the lyrics start. Reaching the apron, she slides in under the bottom rope and heads to her “home” corner, then hops on the middle turnbuckle to take in the fans’ reaction. She hops off and ties her hair into a ponytail, then removes her jacket, showing a sleeveless, full-torso black leather top. Lastly, she takes off her boots and socks since she wrestles in bare feet.

Profile

This was never supposed to be her line of work. Although she grew up in a home where older brothers watched wrestling on TV at a time when it was on Saturday mornings, it was just “silly guy stuff.” Not that Laura dabbled much in traditional girly things, but wrestling never did anything for her.

It’s amazing what life can bring to the table.

Growing up, there was one constant in Laura Seton’s life—success. Whether it was schoolwork or sport, Laura was number one in nearly everything she did. While her booksmarts were tops in her class, her athleticism was in a world of it’s own. A star track athlete in high school, she went a step further and made the US Olympic team multiple times in sprinting categories, bringing home gold medals each time. Yet, she never tried an actual track career. She was a whiz at basketball, being her home state’s top prep player her senior year and made the All-State team twice. People thought she may have a chance in the pros and yeah, she did have a few years as a 3-point threat at the highest level—but basketball was never a “real” career for her.

Once upon a time in 2000, Laura Seton stepped foot in a wrestling arena. She was nothing but a nuisance at first to an actual, contracted wrestler in the NYSWF but her shenanigans caught the eye of Duane Gates. Her first-ever professional contract was signed with the EWA that spring, using only her first name as her ring name. It didn’t take long for success to find her again. Even with a fast start to her career, it was a chore getting actual respect from fans and the other wrestlers. As weeks passed by and the weeks turned to months, Laura continued making her way to the ring and giving opponents the fight of their life and showed she had what it took to live in the ring. Fans came around to her and supported her as, like most other wrestlers, she kept going from one fed to another, never letting a set of closed doors end her career.

The pattern went for 6 strong years before the brutality of the sport finally caught up to her. She burned out and, using better judgment, stepped away from the ring. Like most pros, though, the ring called back to her. In the spring of 2008, she returned with the LEGACY company. It was time to again prove she belonged—a feat she took care of by year’s end. It would be a total of nearly three years there, attaining a Tao of Valor championship reign in the process. At the same time, her fan respect hit a peak—becoming a huge fan favorite because of her determination and bright smile and attitude. This springboarded her to the rival SHOOT Project upon LEGACY’s closing—but SHOOT was… well… interesting.

Instead of fans of high-spirited wrestling, she was in front of fans wanting blood. An exciting hurricanrana meant almost nothing, but a TV being smashed upon someone else’s head got the building rocking. Her bright attitude would eventually be pushed aside by fans and her patience wore thin with their bloodlust. Preferring the more technical, athletic side of the sport, she would unload on the fans, giving them plenty of her mind—turning herself into one of the most hated in the company. While she would hold the Sin City Championship twice, it was a company and fanbase she would rather soon forget. Such a setting did open her eyes though. She realized a more intense mindset just might finally get her that one prize that was missing from her trophy case.

A World Championship.

She had come close. She had consistently held numerous secondary and tertiary titles. She had consistently advanced to main event level in federations. She had even been in a few multi-person matches with a World Championship on the line. So close and yet so far, as each time she came up on the short end.

And then April 22, 2016 happened.

In Savannah, GA at EWA’s Fight Night non-televised show, though the match was broadcast via YouthTube, jaws dropped and seemingly Hell froze over. She defeated Chris Kage…

… and finally became a World Champion!

Alas, the glory lasted not quite 10 full days as she was forced into her first title defense unexpectedly at Battlelines 11—seeing Chris Kage regain the World Title.

As the EWA took it’s show on the road to Japan with Live in Tokyo, Laura again found herself in the middle of the wrestling spotlight. Not just because she was in the main event that night, but because for the second time in just under four months, she became a World Champion.

And then Grace Goeren ruined the party.

Cashing in her Path of the Warrior contract and taking full advantage of the fatigued Seton. Approximately 10 minutes after she won, Laura Seton again found herself minus the World Championship.

A proud career in general? Sure.

A proud career in terms of World Championships? Two isn’t bad…

… but when you’ve held the belt not even long enough for someone to say, “World Heavyweight Champion?”

Let’s just say Laura still feels that she has plenty to accomplish before she calls it a career. It’s been only a nibble of the World Championship that she’s had.

It’s the full bite she’s after.
