Tina fought in a very large number of matches for many of the main female wrestling organisations throughout the 1990s and into the early 2000s, almost always using her alias Tina Antman. She was well known as a feisty and indomitable fighter who often fought topless and wasn’t abashed to fight in the nude. Though predominantly a wrestler she also competed in some fully-competitive boxing matches, and she also appeared in some BDSM movies under the pseudonym “Red Riding Hood”.
Tina’s fighting career appears to have started about 1991 when she made her first appearance for Festelle and TPC aged 23. In the following four years she made several appearances at Festelle events wrestling both topless and in the nude as well as boxing. In 1996 Tina had a period in Budapest fighting for DWW in both topless and nude matches.
Tina's nemesis throughout her fighting career was Robin (Susie Johnson) to whom she seems to have consistently lost (see the table below).
Early in Tina's career she briefly stayed with Robin and from that time until Tina retired they fought regularly as friends and rivals.

Tina vs. Robin
TPC-91-6 International Face Pin
This was Tina’s very first wrestling match and start of a long relationship with her nemesis Robin. Unabashed from the beginning at fighting bare breasted or in the nude, Tina at chose to fight topless in a pink thong while her opponent Robin wore green bikini bottoms and a black sports bra. The fight was organised by the WCS and the video marketed under the TPC label. It probably took place in June 1991 when Tina was in England to fight at a Festelle event which was held on 29th June. Recalling the event in a 1998 interview for Amazons in Action magazine Robin had the following to say: “We met on the mat working for Festelle (sic) in 1991 and she didn’t speak to me much after the match, which I had won. But she told me she was coming to America and I invited her to stay with me for a week if she needed to get herself sorted out. She stayed for months and we have become very very close. I love Tina!”
From the very start of the fight Robin dominated Tina who was forced to submit four times in fairly quick succession to Robin’s powerful body and head scissors. The fight ended with Robin subjecting Tina to a prolonged facesit pin which concluded with Tina lying on the mat looking totally beat. This match was to set the scene for many matches in future. Robin may have professed to love Tina, but that didn’t stop her for beating her in nearly every fight that they had both in public and private. Link to match
Tina vs. Darian
Video Sports V038-2 1991 Topless Lightweight Tournament
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.
Tina vs. Alex Jordan
Video Sports V049 1992 Lightweight Spectacular
Alex Jordan was better known as an adult movie actress appearing in some 166 movies over the period 1991 until her death in 1995. This fight against Tina at the Video Sport 1992 Lightweight Spectacular (tape V049) appears to be her only competitive wrestling match.
It is clear from the beginning of the fight, when the two fighters shake hands, that there is bad blood between the two of them. The fight starts with some furious action from both fighters, but Tina soon establishes control with a series of tight headlocks and body-scissors. Alex tries desperately to escape Tina's clutches, but the experienced Swedish fighter keeps her under control each time regaining her hold on the increasingly desperate novice. After eleven minutes of fighting Alex submits for the first time to Tina's tight breast smother headlock.
Things don't improve for Alex when the fight restarts and Tina immediately brings her opponent to the canvas in yet another tight headlock. As a novice Alex doesn't have the skill to escape Tina's holds and at times she cries out with pain and frustration at her situation. About 6 minutes into the second session Tina traps Alex in a very tight side headlock from which she is unable to escape. Panicking from the feeling of being choked Alex tells Tina to stop, but the feisty Swedish fighter ignores her pleas until eventually Alex's screams together with the shouts from the audience persuade her to let go. As Tina gets to her feet Alex smacks her butt in an act of anger and frustration, but the Tina takes no notice and casually walks back to the corner. Alex gets to her feet and abruptly leaves the ring ending the fight.
Alex continued to work as an adult movie star for another 3 years until her death in 1995, but it seems unlikely that she ever had another competitive wrestling match.
Tina vs. Anita H
Festelle Video FV112 Nude Challenge
Jeff the Ref introduced this Festelle Video fight as “a nude all-in wrestling match over an unlimited number of submissions only, until one girl gives up the match”. The fight certainly lived up to that description, although fans may have wished that it had gone on for longer. Most naked catfights tend to be rather non-competitive, staged events, but Tina’s fight with Anita was certainly not staged – it turned out to be a very competitive if not downright vicious fight.
The match was held in London during the fall of 1993 in front of a small audience. At that time Festelle charged £30 to attend a topless fighting event, but for this nude wrestling event the price was upped to £100, hence the rather small audience.
According to their statistics the two wrestlers were exactly matched in height and weight at 5’ 3” and 108lbs, although in the opening scene of the video when they were standing face to face Anita appeared to be an inch or two taller (pic 1).
As soon as the fight started Anita grabbed Tina in a headlock and dragged the Swedish fighter to the ground. Immediately they were on the mat both fighters grabbed each others hair, but it was soon obvious that Anita was better at this sort of vicious catfighting. She quickly dominated Tina with a series of unconventional moves and manoeuvres (pics 2 and 3). After just 2 minutes of fighting Anita pinned Tina on the mat and forced her head and neck back in a unique chin-pull hold. The Swedish fighter had no answer to this unusual hold and after just 20 seconds she was forced to submit (pics 4 and 5).
When the fight restarted Anita once again dominated the action by immediately grabbing Tina by her long red hair and wrestling her to the mat. Tina struggled desperately to escape, but when she was pinned to the ground by her hair she called for a break to clarify the rules of the fight (pic 6). She looked somewhat perplexed when the referee explained to her that “there are no rules” (pic 7).
After a short break the fight restarted and Anita went on the offensive again; she grabbed Tina by her hair and swung her round dragging her off her feet to the mat. Anita immediately got onto Tina’s back and put her in a chin-pull (pic 8). Tina managed to get out on the chin hold, but then Anita grabbed her hair and twisted her head painfully back with a combination chin and hair pull. Tina submitted for the second time (pic 9). After Anita had got to her feet Tina lay stunned on the mat rubbing her neck (pic 10). So after only a little over 5 minutes Anita had got her second submission.
Despite the way things were going Tina started the next session full of energy and determination, but once again it was Anita who took control of the fight with hair pulling and chin holds (pic 11). On the brief occasions when Tina took control of the fight (pics12, 13 & 14) she soon lost it again. Things got increasingly bad tempered with a number of breaks having to be taken to allow things to calm down. At one point Anita repeatedly picked Tina up by her hair and then slammed her to the mat (pic 15). A little later Tina screamed with anger when Anita failed to stop after Tina called for a break to allow her to sort out a problem with her contact lens (pic 16). The referee certainly had his hands full with this fight!
Some 20 minutes into the fight Anita attempted to get Tina in another hair and chin-pull combination, but this was too much for the Swede who yelled out in alarm (pic 17) and surrender the match saying “I don’t want my hair pulled out!” The referee declared Anita the winner with Tina refusing to return to the mat for the customary announcement. It was an unhappy end to what surely is the most ferocious naked catfights that has been seen at Festelle.

Amazons in Action #64 account of the fight
Tina’s fights with Eveline at the DWW in 1996
In January 1996 DWW organised a series of private fights in Budapest, some topless and some nude, and they invited Tina to add some international competition to their line up of Hungarian fighters. Tina had fours fights in total, two in the nude against Andrea and Orsolya, and two topless ones against Marietta and Eveline. It was the fight against Eveline that was to be the hardest and the most bad tempered of these encounters. Jeff the Ref refereed the fight which was held in a ring with a heavily padded mat. Eveline had won all her fights since she started with DWW in the summer of 1995 and she looked pretty confident and relaxed as the referee introduced her to the camera. Tina returned her opponent’s confident demeanour with a look that could be interpreted as smug or condescending. The two fighters did shake hands before starting the fight, but that was the last gesture of friendliness we were going to see in this fight.
As usual Eveline made the first move by grabbing Tina in a headlock and taking her to the mat, but the Swedish fighter retaliated by locking her legs round Eveline in a tight bodyscissors. Tina showed her incredible flexibility by maintaining the scissor hold despite Eveline’s best efforts to dislodge her. At one point Eveline trapped Tina in a serious looking folded position that had the referee asking if the Swede wanted to submit (see photo below). Tina managed to break out Eveline’s grip and re-established the bodyscissors as the fight moved to the edge of the ring and off the padded mat. Eveline fought her way out of the bodyscissors, but before she could reset Tina trapped her in a combination bodyscissors and full nelson. Being trapped in a complex hold like this was a new experience for Eveline and she responded by pushing her thumbs into Tina’s face below the jaw which drew a warning from the referee. Eveline now tried bridging her body to break out of the hold, but when that failed Tina tightening the scissors causing Eveline to grimace in pain. Eveline attacked Tina’s face again this time successfully forcing the Swede to release her holds. The action then moved off the padded mat into the ropes causing the referee to call for a break in the action.
The fight restarted with Eveline once again taking Tina to the mat in a headlock. The Hungarian twisted her opponent’s head and neck hoping to get a submission, but when Tina escaped from that hold Eveline tried for a pin instead. The Swedish fighter managed to roll onto her front in a defensive position, which left Eveline looking frustrated above her. The fight then moved off the mat and into the ropes so the referee called for a break to get the fighters back into the centre of the mat.
Once again the fight restarted with Eveline grabbing Tina in a headlock and taking her to the mat. As in the first session Tina fought back by using her flexibility to get a bodyscissors around Eveline’s abdomen which led to the fighters rolling off the mat and into the ropes, so the referee had to call for a break. This pattern was repeated several times over with the fighters getting frustrated by the frequent interruptions.
Some 20 minutes into the fight this repetitive cycle was broken when, after a reset, Tina took Eveline to the mat in a headlock. Now the greater experience of the Swedish fighter became apparent as she positioned her body away from Eveline and spread her legs wide to stop Eveline rolling her over. As Tina tightened the headlock Eveline attacked her face and throat trying to force Tina to break the hold. The referee warned Eveline about choking, but that did nothing to stop Eveline from attacking Tina’s face and neck. Tina maintained the hold as Eveline, encouraged by her Hungarian teammates’ shouts, made more desperate attempts to break out of the hold. Despite Eveline’s gyrations and the attacks on her face Tina held the headlock tight with the Hungarian’s head pressed hard against her right shoulder. After nearly two minutes in this hold Eveline lost her temper completely and started to slap and scratch at Tina’s face. Seeing things getting out of control the referee called for the fight to stop. Tina released her hold and Eveline pulled away thumping Tina on her back as she went. The Hungarian then leapt to her feet and had to be restrained by the referee from attacking Tina again. The match was ended at this point and the referee made the decision to call it a 0-0 draw.
The referee’s decision to declare this match a draw can certainly be questioned. Eveline clearly lost her temper and behaved badly when she attacked Tina’s face in such a dangerous way. It could be argued that Eveline should have submitted when she found was unable to escape from Tina’s hold and should not have resorted to slapping and scratching at Tina’s face. Doubtless the loud the shouts from the other Hungarian fighters helped to enrage Eveline and this might have contributed to her outburst. Perhaps the referee should have awarded the point and the match to Tina, but that would have probably caused quite a stir amongst the Hungarian supporters. So the fight remained a draw with a rematch to be agreed to settle things.
Later in 1996 Tina returned to DWW to fight another four fights, two of these were return matches against Eveline and Andrea, the other two were fights against new opponents: Hana and Helga. The fight against Eveline was the most anticipated and the most fraught with risk as the previous fight had had to be stopped by the referee because “things were getting out of hand”.
The fight was held in one of DWW’s regular locations where the wrestling mat was enclosed on 3 sides. This had the distinct advantage that the fight would be more contained and ‘out of bounds’ breaks could be reduced. A small audience located out of view of the camera watched the match. The fight started with the fighters grasping each other in headlocks and twisting themselves to the mat. As soon as they hit the mat Tina locked her legs round Eveline’s waist in a bodyscissors which forced the Hungarian to release her headlock. Eveline forced her arm in between Tina’s legs to try and break the scissors, but then she grimaced as Tina tightened her holds in response. Slowly Eveline turned her head until her chin was over the corner of Tina’s jaw then she pressed down hard driving her chin into Tina’s head and neck (see photo below). It was an inspired move and it quickly brought results when Tina released her headlock. Now instead of trying to grasp Eveline in a headlock Tina tried with all her strength to push Eveline’s head away. In desperation Tina used her amazing flexibly to bring her right leg round to help lever Eveline’s head away from her face, but this didn’t work and Eveline locked a tight headlock on Tina which forced the Swedish fighter to re-establish her bodyscissor hold. Eveline maintained the headlock for some time, but Tina’s bodyscissors were obviously hurting her so she suddenly released the headlock and got to her feet which forced Tina to release her scissors. The two fighters now fell back to the mat and as they did so Tina locked a bodyscissors on Eveline once again. They rolled into the enclosure wall and as Tina tightened her scissors further Eveline started to attack her face as she had done in their first fight (see photo). Tina yelled in alarm and anger causing the referee to move swiftly to stop the fight before things could deteriorate further. Once again Eveline’s temper had got the better of her!
The fight was restarted after a short break to allow tempers to cool and to remind Eveline about the rules. The two wrestlers took up the fight more or less where they had left off with Eveline getting a headlock on Tina who fought back with a bodyscissors. Once again Tina took control with a combination bodyscissors and full nelson hold and once again Eveline retaliated by attacking Tina’s face. It looked as if the referee would have to stop the fight again, but this time the struggling fighters moved hard against wall of the enclosure, which protected Tina’s face from further attack. After a short period Eveline managed to break out of Tina’s holds and then tried unsuccessfully to pin the Swedish fighter. As Tina made her escape from the pin she found herself trapped face down on the mat by Eveline. The Hungarian fighter now turned on the pressure as she slowly levered Tina’s right shoulder back while all the time keeping her trapped against the mat with a bodyscissors. After some 30 seconds in this increasingly painful combination Tina yelled out her submission.
The fight restarted with the two wrestlers dropping to the mat in mutually applied headlocks, but Eveline soon took control by moving over Tina and forcing her to release her headlock. Eveline now adjusted her position and hold to put Tina in a pin. The Swedish wrestler fought hard to stop a count being taken, but she wasn’t able to escape from Eveline’s control. After some 40 seconds Eveline suddenly gave up on the pin and rolled sideways to lock her legs round Tina’s head and left shoulder in a headscissors. Encouraged by her team-mates Eveline tightened her scissor hold until after about 20 seconds Tina submitted for the second time giving the fight to Eveline by 2 falls to 0. After announcing the result the referee congratulated both fighters on managing to control themselves so that the fight could be completed and a winner declared.
