Netflix has a show made revolving around Women’s Wrestling. G.L.O.W. (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) has ladies auditioning for the role of wrestlers. Even though that’s not how most accomplished female wrestlers got their start, it’s a great way to show that reality of sports entertainment and the skills that one has to have in order to make it.

And an extra incentive, former TNA Knockouts Champion Awesome Kong (Kharma in WWE) will be in the cast.

It seems interesting.

This is just some art for my own enjoyment :)

I have been doing nothing but commissions lately so I wanted to take some time and just enjoy sketching my own thing for a little bit to kind of kick back and relax.

I decided to have another try at designing a Human-Former Knockout

I have seen so many interpretations recently that it inspired me to do a compilation of him myself! :)

WWE Signs Jasmin Areebi:

In addition to signing KC Cassidy, WWE has also signed Canadian Indy wrestler Jasmin Areebi. 

Jasmin, who was trained by former TNA Knockout Taylor Wilde, is only 20 years of age and has been wrestling for around 2 years and marks WWE’s first Diva of Arab decent. 

Jasmin has appeared for promotions such as AIW and NCW Femme Fatales. 

Congratulations to Jasmin of signing with WWE, I wish you all the best.
