In recent years, the ladies professional wrestling scene has exploded popularity–wise as well as in regards to the number of promotions pushing ladies-only wrestling. Technology has allowed female wrestling promotions to finally circumvent one major choke-point from the creation of the finished product to the point of consumption: TV deals. In this respect, there were a couple of trail-blazing organizations, and it seems like these days several other promotions are looking to join the path of the iPPV, generally viewed as an integral part of the future of the women’s wrestling. Even as professional women wrestling takes up center stage though, appearing to have finally broken through, not just in regards to how the product is packaged and delivered but also in the actual quality of the action (the professional female wrestlers of today aren’t catfighters and they’re rightfully proud of that), freestyle or Olympic women wrestling has definitely been sidelined in light of a recent decision of the International Olympic Committee. Independent competitive mat wrestling has pretty much retained its not too glamorous side-show attraction status though. For someone who likes to see women wrestling, we can definitely affirm that the current day and age is the second coming of the golden age of professional ladies wrestling. There are shows running all the time, the top talent is getting booked and new names are not only allowed but sometimes even pushed into the squared circle. Professional wrestling is indeed THE contact sport most suited to women and we’re definitely glad the industry is slowly but surely realizing the potential behind this most spectacular form of sports entertainment.
