My wrestling fandom takes me to the Land of the Rising Sun.
AEW just won the first battle in the new “wars” with buzz and guttural excitement.
The women are main eventing WrestleMania for the first time in 35 years; no small feat given the track record of women at the Show of the Immortals.
The greatest of all time and what a run…
WWE needs to do a full-court press and fire up this revolution and actually put some creative juice behind it.
NXT is delivering a crew of empowering, genius women athletes like Banks, Charlotte Flair, and Becky Lynch who are winning over crowds and changing the expectations of what comprises greatness in the ring.
She’s just bad-ass.
The ultimate fear is that the WWE is just appearing to give the women better focus right now to placate the #GiveDivasAChance phenomenon and it’ll be business as usual in a few months time, but that would be a tragic miscalculation.
