When you think of dynamic duos in professional wrestling, the independent scene is buzzing with talent. In addition to currently holding both the Mission Pro Wrestling Tag Team Championship and NWA World Women's Tag Team Championship, Danni Bee and Charity King have gained quite the following, both inside and outside the ring. These two have stung their competition across various promotions, leaving a lasting impression on fans (like myself) and opponents alike. Let's take a look at their journey, tracing their steps through some of the top independent wrestling promotions.

Danni Bee: The Big Buzz

Danni Bee, #31 on this year’s #BRP50, one-half of the powerful tag team The King Bees, is a standout talent in the world of professional wrestling. Originating from Oklahoma, she moved to Texas to start her wrestling career. Danni's journey is marked by strength, technical skill, and an unyielding determination that has captivated audiences across the independent circuit. Danni Bee's wrestling career began with a passion for the sport that quickly led her to two-time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T’s Reality of Wrestling. Her agility and ability to connect with the crowd set her apart early on, setting a path for success that has included being the current New Texas Pro Women’s Champion and previously holding the Hurricane Pro Women's title. Danni's matches are characterized by her fearless approach, taking big risks, and executing hard-hitting moves that leave you in awe.

Charity King: The Queen Bee of the Ring

Charity King, No. 40 on this year’s #BRP50 and the other half of this dynamic tag team, is a force to be reckoned with in the world of women’s professional wrestling. Hailing from Houston, Texas, Charity's journey into wrestling began with fierce determination and an undeniable talent, quickly setting herself apart from the competition. Charity King also started her wrestling career at Booker T’s Reality of Wrestling, where she rapidly made a name for herself. The combination of her big power moves and maneuvers brings an in-ring presence that captures the attention of fans and promoters alike. With each match, she hones her skills, developing a reputation as a relentless competitor who could take on any challenge.

The Formation of The King Bees

We all know the independent circuit is known for its commitment to showcasing amazing emerging talent, and the circuit has become a pivotal platform for The King Bees. With all tag teams, chemistry is the foundation of their success. Danni Bee and Charity King forged their partnership in the heat of battle and the camaraderie of shared dreams, quickly evolving into one of the most cohesive units on the independent scene. While they first wrestled as a team in 2022, they had their most impressive run as a tag team during this last year, closing out the BRP50 2024 period holding two tag team titles. They bring a unique blend of athleticism and character everywhere they go, quickly becoming “the bee's knees” of the locker rooms they hit. Their matches are hard-hitting battles and spectacles of storytelling. Feuds with tag teams like Pretty Empowered, who they beat for the NWA World Women’s Tag Team Championship, or their current beef with Fire N Flav’s Kiera Hogan, the King Bees created moments and highlights of their successes. They’ve consistently received significant attention over the past year, setting the stage for their inevitable rise. Their matches are brutal and breathtaking, pushing any opponent to their limits and allowing them (and their respective performers) to grow while honing their craft.

The Future of The King Bees

With their reputation firmly established, The King Bees are poised to continue their ascent in the world of women’s professional wrestling. Their journey through these various promotions has honed their skills while earning a loyal following. We can only expect more thrilling matches, intense rivalries, and unforgettable moments from Danni Bee and Charity King as we look toward the future.

The King Bees are a testament to the power of hard work, dedication, and the unbreakable bond of a tag team. Their trajectory through the independent wrestling scene is a buzzing tale of success, resilience, and the relentless pursuit of greatness. Keep your eyes on The King Bees, because they're just getting started, and the best is yet to come.

The Writer’s Note

I've had the privilege of witnessing countless matches, but few have left an impression quite like the first time I saw The King Bees in action. It was February 2024 at ASÉxBHM, and the energy in the gym was incredible. When Danni Bee and Charity King stepped into the ring in a bout against Joseline Navarro and Raché Chanel, I knew I was about to witness something special. From the moment the bell rang, these four amazing Black women captivated the audience with their blend of old-school wrestling style infused with a modern twist. Their in-ring chemistry was on brand; the character work, consistent; I enjoyed every minute of them. Every move, every glance, every tag was executed with a seamless precision that only comes from a deep understanding and mutual respect.

What struck me most was their ability to pay homage to the greats of wrestling's past while innovating for the future. Their matches were a perfect mix of technical skill and storytelling that drew you in and kept you on the edge of your seat. The way Danni Bee's agility complemented Charity King's power is nothing short of Black Girl Magic. Watching The King Bees chase their dreams and achieve greatness as NWA World Women’s Tag Team Champions while staying true to themselves and each other fills me with pride. Their journey is a testament to their hard work, dedication, and the unbreakable bond they share.

The King Bees are not just tag team partners; they are a symbol of resilience, unity, and Black excellence in women's wrestling. Seeing them live at ASÉ Wrestling was a moment. It was an honor to witness their incredible talent (as well as many others) and to be part of the crowd that cheered them on. The King Bees are taking women's tag team wrestling to new heights and I can't wait to see where their journey takes them next.
