Other information

Darian was a wrestler who fought in one bout for Video Sports, and also for California Wildcats where she was billed as Melinda and appeared in two semi-competitive matches. She was originally a police officer in Australia who had changed career to modelling and dancing, subsequently moving to USA because of the greater range of opportunities. She had previously done some mud and jello wrestling but had never taken part in a serious competitive match before appearing in a Video Sports event.

Notable matches

Darian vs. Tina


The match between Darian and Tina took place in a gym in California during 1991. It was part of the 4-girl 1991 Topless Lightweight tournament which also involved Jasae and Jennifer - Darian and Jennifer were relative novices but Tina and Jasae had previous competitive wrestling experience.

This was a good bout, friendly and sporting but competitive, with both women trying hard to win. Darian was taller and slightly heavier than Tina but the girls seemed very similar in terms of strength. Tina was determined to be the more aggressive wrestler but found Darian was able to withstand the numerous scissors holds she put on her, and her attempts to pin her opponent were similarly unsuccessful. Darian responded with attacks of her own but didn't have the power or technique to gain a score. By the end of the match both girls were tired but no closer to resolving the contest - both seemed to have really enjoyed the opportunity to test out their physical strength and endurance, but Tina was a little disappointed to have not been able to make her greater experience and skills tell.
