Lucy (Hannah) Osterfeld (née Knott) and Kelly (Holly) Sharpe (née Knott) (born on 18 February 1988) are better known to the Wrestling world as The Blossom Twins. The twins grew up in Stockport, Greater Manchester, and became wrestling fans at the age of 12 where they admired and wanted to emulate the Hardy Boyz.
The Blossom Twins began their careers in professional wrestling at a time when most teenagers are concerned with GCSEs, commencing there training at 15 and debuting in professional wrestling at the age of 16.
The Blossom Twins really went through the school of hard knocks, from 2005 the twins made appearances in a number of promotions in the UK. These appearances allowed The Blossom Twins to impress both fans and bookers with some excellent matches which lead to Hannah facing Mickie James to determine the inaugural Covey Pro Women’s Champion.
These excellent matches would then lead on to The Blossom Twins heading to America. In 2009 they were in Ohio Valley Wrestling. Their time at Ohio Valley Wrestling was prolific, where they developed their skills further and were a regular feature of the promotion. Facing off talent such as Lei’D Tapa and Taeler Hendrix.
This time in development in Ohio Valley Wrestling really paid off as it paved the way for the twins to be contestants in TNA’s British Boot Camp.
Being participants in the Challenge TV reality show against Rockstar Spud and Marty Scurll, the Blossoms really held their own on the show and in the final episode of the series the Blossom Twins talent really shone, which they more than demonstrated when they faced off against Gail Kim and Madison Rayne.
Sadly although the Blossom Twins lost to Rockstar Spud, they presented themselves really well on the show and represented British woman’s wrestling brilliantly.
This wasn’t quite the end for The Blossom twins, they returned on the 14 February 2013 episode of Impact Wrestling teaming with Marty Scurll against Gail Kim, Tara and Jessie in a six-person mixed tag team match. It was later confirmed that they had signed to a contract with TNA.
Hannah took part in the One Night Only events, in both the Knockout Knockdown and TNA World Cup of Wrestling as part of Team UK. On the 14 November episode of Impact Wrestling, Hannah made her return answering TNA Women’s Knockout Champion Gail Kim’s open challenge.
Although it seems that sadly, the story ends for the Blossom Twins on 7 January 2014 when unfortunately the twins announced they were taking time off from wrestling, and as a part of their departure have consequently left TNA. Both have gone on to marry, Lucy to former OVW wrestler Chris Silvio and Kelly to OVW referee Chris Sharpe; and currently look happy living in Louisville along with a life outside the ring.
