The Summer Vengeance tournament is in its fifth year and is the brainchild of UltimateSurrender.com director Matt Williams. The 16 participants were culled from a field of 30 wrestlers that have performed on Ultimate Surrender over the last year.
"Based on our scoring system, we've rated the top 16 wrestlers for an elimination tournament,” Williams said. “Those top 16 will face off against each other — 16 faces 15, 14 faces 13, and so on, until we get down to four wrestlers.
“Then in August, we'll show those matches live on the Internet, where members can watch as it happens and also chat live,” Williams added. “We'll have announcers taking questions from the members via chat and asking the wrestlers between rounds."
Though tagged with nicknames in the ring, all the wrestlers also are well-known adult and fetish performers and will include Amber Rayne ("The Rogue"), Isis Love ("The Goddess"), Ariel X ("The Assassin"), Sabrina Fox ("The Phoenix"), Samantha Sin ("The Python"), Sarah Jane Ceylon ("Blondie"), Annie Cruz ("The Scorpion"), Adrianna Nicole ("The Adrianaconda"), Syd Blakovitch ("The Nightmare"), Wenona ("The Gymnast") and Madison Young ("The Butcher"), among others.
In the first round of action, wrestlers wear bikinis, but as the match progresses to the second round, the object is to remove an opponent’s clothing. Once naked, the wrestlers perform headlocks and other traditional wrestling moves and are awarded extra points for fingering and fondling. The winner of the match earns the right to have on-camera sex with the loser.
The matches are shot in the “mat room” located in Kink’s headquarters at the San Francisco Armory.
The first Summer Vengeance match can be viewed on UltimateSurrender.com now. Performances will be updated every Tuesday until the competition is narrowed down to the four finalists. Final matches will be streamed live for the site's members. Dates for the live broadcasts are yet-to-be-announced.
