Ring of Beauty is a virtual media company focused in all-women wrestling, currently run by Michael Showtime and Christian Gardner. This company's headquarters is based on Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with an office in New York. Ring of Beauty currently runs Sunday Night Primetime on a bi-weekly schedule, as well as their PPVs being bi-monthly, once every four Primetimes.
It was late in 2004 when Latin-American professional wrestling promoter Carlos Colon, after meeting with many women wrestlers on the independent circuit, decided to put together a legitimate all-women's wrestling promotion. A federation built upon the action and athleticism that the "men's" promotions were supposedly based on. With the right talent and management, Colon hoped to permanently dispel the myth that women were nothing more than eye candy for the 18-30 demographic. After meeting with a board of investors, Colon established Ring of Beauty Wrestling, a promotion which, he hoped, would single-handedly change the business forever. Renting out the FCC Arena in Miami, Florida, Colon purchased a nearby television studio, enabling RoB to cut television-quality promos and commercials.
Still weighed down by the responsibilities of his other Indy work, Colon has hired his son, WWE superstar Carlito, to manage the fed. RoB had the "cool", but to be regarded as a "serious" promotion, it needed a "serious" promoter. And nobody was more "serious" about wrestling than ex-WWE Lance Storm. The teaming of an Indy promoter, a WWE superstar, and an ex-WWE superstar would, Colon hoped, prove to be a worthy match for the male-dominated promotions. Unfortunately the federation lasted less than a year and closed its doors in late 2005. While some would consider Ring of Beauty's first run a failure two stars in the wrestling industry disagreed. RAWF legend Mr. Michael Showtime and "The Dreamer" Todd Williams as in late 2007 decided to buy out a bankrupt Ring of Beauty and start it up again. With a clean slate, with new stars and new excitement. Where Carlito and Lance Storm failed, they will try to succeed.
When Ring of Beauty opened their doors back up, most of the roster came from Divas Unleashed, considered by most to be a sister company more than a competitive promotion.
When it came to decide who would contend for the vacant championships, a battle royale was made. The tag championship contenders were already determined, while the remaining nine in the battle royale would determine which group of three would face off to declare their champions at the next show. The first group for the Television title, second group for the Hardcore title, and the last three for the World title. At the end of the match, Amber Burton was the last woman standing, and declared Queen of the Ring.
It should also be noted that a month into the promotion's start, Showtime booted Dreamer from his position as co-owner, and gave that spot to Martin Frisconelli a few weeks later.
