I have been a wrestling fan since I was a kid and always remembered watching in the early mornings or late evenings on the weekend. Everything from WWF, WCW/NWA, and even GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) shaped my childhood appreciation of the sport. Women’s wrestling has always been there as a part of that, even if it was not as highlighted. But sadly, the years to come pushed these talented athletes even further away, forcing them into the roles of valets and managers, with no in-ring work to show off their skills, and leaving the focus on their other assets instead. Thankfully, things changed and a lot of talented competitors were able to take the stage and show that the women could fight just as hard as the men, but it wasn’t until recently in the WWE that fans were allowed to see these athletes truly perform again.
Now with the recent passing of the Ninth Wonder of the World, Chyna, fans have lost one of the cornerstones of modern women’s wrestling and I am down a personal favorite. So I thought now was the time to highlight some talented and beautiful wrestlers outside of the main company who deserve a little attention.
