BIOGRAPHY

Early Life

Charlotte Cummings had a tough childhood growing up in Manchester, England. Her mother did not get along with her rebellious character which, in her opinion, did not fit a girl properly raised. Charlotte’s wish to practice martial arts was also not tolerated by her parents who wanted her to become a modern dancer. Later she came into contact drugs and bad friends, so her parents were forced to take her to Foxton to keep her away from these influences. This relocation changed her life completely. She joined a local dance school and danced everything from ballet to jazz to hip-hop. She also started to train kickboxing secretly in the gym next door. One day while working out in the gym she saw a female MMA fight that totally raised her passion for the sport. She soon befriended Femke Van Heinen, the Dutch fighter who actively fought in Stefanos Cosse’s underground fight club at the time. In the spring of 2005, at the age of 20 Charlotte had her first taste of female fighting when she faced Femke in the gym in an exhibition match. Although she lost, she quickly became obsessed with catfights. In the summer of that year, she officially joined Stefanos’ fight club and fought regularly for him since.

Fighting Style

Although Charlotte didn’t receive training in any forms of martial arts growing up, she’s quick learner. During an interview conducted in 2010, she revealed she had obtained a purple belt in Jiu-Jitsu. In addition, she admitted that her childhood street fighting experience helped her a lot in shaping her aggressiveness and tenaciousness during a fight. While Charlotte has moved from an upper echelon fighter to elite status in the past few years, her technical skills can still be somewhat unpolished at times. An opponent who is stronger or more technically sound stands a real chance of defeating her.

Career in the IWFC

In May of 2005, Charlotte wrestled her first officially sanctioned match against Femke Van Heinen of the Netherlands in a local gym in Foxton. While she was schoolgirl pinned and lost, Charlotte later admitted that this match piqued her interest in female wrestling and she had to come back for more.

Between 2005 and 2008, Charlotte actively fought in Stefanos Cosse’s underground fight club.

Before the launch of the IWFC in early 2009, Charlotte fought in the Queen of the Night tournament although she failed to win the title. Then, as her first match in the IWFC, she was pitted against Maia Soulioti of Greece on May 3. The women fought each other so hard that both ended up nude, and it was a brutal facesit by Charlotte that earned her Maia’s third and final submission. On August 9 during the club summer vacation, Charlotte got into a scuffle with Yulia Koroleva who was the IWFC champion at the time. Much to everyone’s surprise, she actually submitted the Russian brunette with a body-scissor. Following up on that win, she challenged Yulia for the title on October 11. It was a match fought down to the wire. In the fifth and deciding fall, she gained Yulia’s surrender via her patented head-lock and became the new IWFC champion.

Charlotte began the 2010 season interviewing her fellow Brit Lauren Griffin on April 25. In a trial catfight, she was almost bested by the feisty brunette. Charlotte eventually subdued her, however, with a body-crushing waist-scissor. On June 6, she had her first title defense against the queen of the Hellcatz – Kaitlyn Langton. Despite wrestling against her leader, Charlotte didn’t back down and fought fiercely. The match went all the way to the fifth and final fall when Kaitlyn ultimately submitted her via a head-lock and became the new champion. Almost three months later on August 29, still lamenting her title loss, Charlotte got into a heated catfight with her friend Femke Van Heinen. Unable to vindicate herself, she again surrendered to Femke after the Dutch blonde trapped her in an inescapable reverse chinlock. Then on October 24, Charlotte was pitted against Alondra Marín Flores in a wrestling match. She completely overwhelmed her smaller Mexican opponent and won the match 3 falls to 1. One week later on October 31, Alondra challenged Charlotte again, this time in a backstage catfight. Completely merciless, the British blonde wiped the floor with Alondra and got her to submit a total of 4 times before deciding she was done. For all her efforts, Charlotte was voted the Hottest Fighter in 2010.

In 2011, after Charlotte’s plan to recruit Lorna Fiscella to the Hellcatz was foiled by Yvonne Lefébure, she challenged the haughty French fighter to a wrestling match on April 10. In a vengeful mood, she completely dismantled Yvonne and even dished out some humiliation after the match by ordering her to tie back the bikini bottom while on her knees. Charlotte followed that victory with another one on June 19 when she barely edged out the American fighter Paige Malonga in a closely fought wrestling match. On August 28, Charlotte’s fellow Hellcat Stephanie Rose wanted to challenge the Brit’s position in the stable. In a one-sided wrestling match, Charlotte put the Aussie blonde in her place by making her scream out her surrender in an excruciating head-scissor. In her final wrestling match of the season, Charlotte submitted Sharon Campbell of USA 3 times and bruised her ribs with a devastating body-scissor. Post match, the pissed-off blonde even tried to stuff her bras down the American fighter’s throat before she was stopped by the referee.

Charlotte finished her 2011 season winning all her fights. On March 4, 2012 the IWFC asked her to interview a newcomer from Brazil – Gisele Medeiros. Overly confident, she took her opponent too lightly and ended up surrendering to the Gisele as the Brazilian sensation sat on her face. This was the first time Charlotte submitted to a rookie. (See “The Interview”) Humiliated, she made up for her loss when she faced Jasmine Dasgupta on April 29. She completely obliterated the Indian fighter 3 falls to nil and re-established herself as a premier fighter in the IWFC. At the time, the IWFC partnered with an American professional wrestling federation and several of the women participated in its storyline. One story had pro-wrestlers Jeff and Chris fighting over Charlotte with Jeff eventually winning her. In real life, Charlotte had also become Jeff’s girlfriend. But the good times didn’t last when Jeff was eventually seduced away by the Italian brunette Callisto Lucioni. On July 1, Charlotte caught Callisto flirting with Jeff alone in his home. Infuriated, she challenged the Italian to a fight in front of Jeff. Charlotte was eventually choked unconscious by Callisto and stretched out butt naked on the grass. (See “He’s My Man”) A month later on August 5, Charlotte faced Callisto again, this time in a shootfight for the number-one contendership. She lost the fight again when Callisto suffocated her with a reverse facesit. But she got the last laugh, however, when she attacked the unsuspecting Callisto from behind and choked out her in the middle of the ring. (See “The Grudge”) 2012 turned out to be the worst season for Charlotte when on October 7, she lost another match, this time against Lorna Fiscella of the USA. The feisty American fought like a mad woman. She injured Charlotte’s neck and eventually submitted the British fighter via a front choke, reducing her to tears.

Charlotte was originally scheduled to challenge Yulia Koroleva for the IWFC championship on March 10, 2013, but the recovery of her neck injury was slower than expected. Eventually she was replaced by Bridget Turner of Ireland in the title bout, and Charlotte held a serious grudge against Lorna Fiscella since. One month later on April 14, she was finally cleared to wrestle and faced the American fighter Vanessa Chewey in a wrestling match. The fight was close, but Charlotte finally got her opponent to submit to a rear-naked choke. Taking it easy for the season, Charlotte didn’t fight another match until July 28 when she was pitted against Goya Cervera of Spain. In another nail-biter of a victory, Charlotte submitted the Spanish fighter in the final fall with head-scissor.
