I’m so happy for her! 7 fucking years of busting her arse and she finally has the title! No one deserves it more than her! The fact that she’s going to walk into Mania as champ in her home town in front of her family warms my heart! What a journey! Wrestlemania in GLOWlando is going to be amazing! #FeelTheGlow

Superstar of the Week: Naomi

Naomi is the true Cinderella story of the WWE today. Not Sasha Banks, not Bayley, not James Ellsworth, Naomi. Starting off in WWE’s OVW before joining NXT in 2011, she debuted on Raw as a Funkadactyl along side Cameron and the Funkasarous Brody’s Clay, Naomi never seemed to catch a break. First her match at Wrestlemania 29 got scraped, then she was pushed behind AJ Lee, Paige, and Nikki Bella. She made Sasha relevant on the main roster, only to have her spot given to the Boss. They even made her finisher a jumping stink face. Even when she was drafted to Smackdown, Becky Lynch and Alexa Bliss were given opportunities before she was. Finally though, earlier tonight, Naomi’s dream came true when she defeated Alexa Bliss to become Smackdown’s Women Champion. You go girl, glow like the star you are.

Orange Is The New Black creator working on a women’s wrestling series for Netflix
[May 20th, 2016]

Who doesn’t love Orange Is The New Black? I feel like there’s a large population of people who got Netflix specifically to watch the show. For fans of the series who also love professional wrestling, here’s some exciting news!

You may have heard of Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling (G.L.O.W.), a promotion from the 1980’s that focused solely on women’s wrestling. Ivory, for example, is among their alumnus. Jenji Kohan, creator of OITNB and Weeds, is currently working on a series based on the promotion and the (not so) glamorous side of women’s wrestling.

The show, tentatively titled GLOW, will focus on a struggling actress in the late 1980′s who lands a role in the promotion’s television show. The show is written by Carly Mensch (Weeds, Nurse Jackie) and Liz Flahive (Homeland, Nurse Jackie) and executive produced by Jenji Kohan. I’m excited to see what kind of characters will surface, as the women in the actual promotion were trained by Mando Guerrero.
