Beatrice St. Clere Priestley, better known by her ring as Bea Priestley, is a professional wrestler from New Zealand born in England on March 22, 1996. She is well recognized for her work in the World Wonder Ring Stardom, where she has won the Goddess of Stardom title twice, the Artist of Stardom title once, the World of Stardom title once, and the SWA World Championship once. Here is all you need to understand about Bea Pristley’s most recent WWE signing.
Professional Wrestling Career
Travis Banks oversaw Priestley’s training in the developmental facility of New Zealand Wide Professional Wrestling, where she made her professional debut at 14. After four years, Priestley relocated back to London, England, where she trained in Progress Wrestling’s ‘The Projo’ developing program to advance her career. Nixon Newell was beaten by Priestley when she made her Whatever Culture Professional Wrestling (WCPW) debut on July 27 at Loaded #5. The first-ever WCPW Women’s Champion was crowned on August 24 by a last-woman-standing bout between Priestley and Newell, which Newell won.
At Loaded #19, Priestley attempted to confront Newell again but was unsuccessful. Following the bout, The Swords of Essex, another Pacitti Club stablemate of Priestley’s, rendered Newell ineffective, & Priestley stole her title, claiming to be “the genuine Women’s Champion.” As Tessa Blanchard’s replacement in the match in WCPW True Prophecy around February, Priestley lost the stolen WCPW Women’s Championship to Newell. A day later, Priestley defeated Nixon Newell in a No Disqualification match to claim the WCPW Women’s Championship.
Priestley was substituted by Viper on June 16, 2017, because she could not participate and, when pinning Viper to win, lost the championship to Kay Lee Ray. After that, Priestley and Viper got into a fight that lasted until the last Loaded episode, when Priestley overcame Viper and ended the war. To reclaim the Defiant Women’s Championship, Priestley beat Millie McKenzie on June 17, 2018. Kanji defeated Priestley on December 3 in a Gauntlet match featuring Kay Lee Ray, Lana Austin, Little Miss Roxxy, and Millie McKenzie.
World Wonder Ring Stardom (2017–present)
By participating inside the Goddesses in the Stardom Tagging League competition on October 14, 2017, Priestley made her promotional debut again for the World Wonder Ring Superstar status promotion. Priestley unsuccessfully contested Toni Storm again for SWA World & World and Stardom Championship at the Stardom event in Taiwan days before the competition’s conclusion. Together with Kelly Klein, she was the tournament’s eventual winner. Following the match, Priestley and Klein attempted to oust Oedo Tai (Hana Kimura & Kagetsu) from the Goddess and Stardom Championship but were unsuccessful. During her six-month stint as a star, Priestley advanced to the 2018 Cinderella Grand finals before falling to eventual champion Momo Watanabe. For the World league Stardom Championship, Priestley beat Kagetsu on May 4 at Golden Week Star 2019 Queen’s Quest Produce.
All Elite Wrestling (2019–present)
On January 22, 2019, this was announced that Priestley had rejected a contract with WWE and was on the verge of accepting one, including All Elite Wrestling (AEW). Priestley would be entering the organization and make her appearance at Fight for the Fallen on July 13, 2019, where she would pair with Shoko Nakajima to fight Britt Baker and Riho, revealed on February 27, 2019, in an episode of “Road To Double Or Nothing.”
When Priestley was 14 years old, a brain tumour was discovered. At the age of 18, she went into surgery to get it removed. Priestley and fellow wrestlers Will Ospreay are presently dating. Their relationship began in early 2017. The pair made their relocation to Japan public in 2019 because they both wrestle there. Later, in late 2021, the couple separated. Priestley was charged with supporting her boyfriend Will Ospreay’s decision to blocklist Pollyanna, a professional wrestler, as part of the Speaking Out campaign after she made accusations against Ospreay’s friend & Swords, and Essex trusted third Scott Wainwright.
Independent wrestling group International Wrestling League (IWL) claimed through Twitter that a venue had instructed them to remove Pollyanna from a match at Ospreay and Priestley’s request. Later, IWL contended that she had been asked to leave the area rather than Ospreay and Priestley. Later, the IWL Official twitter manager acknowledged that the apparent proof was their interpretation of an “unclear circumstance.”
