For the past several weeks on AXS TV, Women of Wrestling, WOW for short, has delivered thoroughly entertaining wrestling action, so it’s awesome to hear that they have been renewed for a second season.
Jeanie Buss and David McLane’s WOW, Women of Wrestling, has been an important part of the industry for quite some time, but it’s now become appointment television for wrestling fans as a weekly show on AXS TV. WOW, which is based Los Angeles, began airing on AXS this year on Jan. 18, and it is broadcast weekly at 9 p.m. ET on Fridays.
According to The Wrap’s Tony Maglio, WOW has been renewed for a second season, and after the first season delivered eight episodes of breath-taking wrestling, the second season is listed as having 24 episodes; that’s triple the awesomeness.
With Tessa Blanchard, Jungle Grrrl, The Beast, and Santana Garrett occupying the main event scene, WOW already has established four franchise players for its weekly series. Holidead, Stephy Slays, Azteca, Kiera Hogan, Jessicka Havok, and Razor are among the many other wrestlers on the “undercard” who have shined, with the likes of Stephy and Azteca looking like future big stars as babyfaces; Hogan has long been on the rise as the a member of the Impact Wrestling roster.
Exciting times are ahead for WOW with a stacked talent roster, and the season finale will air this week on Friday, Mar. 8 with a highly-anticipated title match between Blanchard and Havok, who have long been regarded as among the best in the business.
McLane also revealed that a WOW Training Center will be opened in Long Beach, so the promotion should have an influx of more new talent for fans to get to know. If WOW can help create rising stars and continue to show broadcast companies that there’s huge interest in women’s wrestling, then the promotion will have made a truly huge impact on the industry in the modern era of professional wrestling.
