Episode 21 with Malia Hosaka

The Women of Wrestling Podcast is proud to bring you an interview with 20+ year veteran Malia Hosaka. We’re working with a broad scope on this show, because frankly, Malia has worked *everywhere* at least once. From training with Killer Kowalski & Misty Blue Simmes in the mid 80s to thoughts on the current WWE product, Malia’s not short of an opinion. We discuss comparisons and contrasts between early female promotions like GLOW, LPWA, LMLW and the like (including how she felt as a relative rookie walking into the LPWA locker room for the first time), and reminisce about her “wrestling mom” Luna Vachon and Sensational Sherri. Malia also shares her thoughts on her time in WCW, including her opinions on how Madusa Miceli ran the division, how she was treated there, and a surprising falling out with Starla Saxton (Nora Greenwald, better known as Molly Holly). She talks signing a WWF “Developmental” deal after 12 years in the business, and how two opportunities were whisked away while under that contract. She has words of advice for youngsters like Tenille Tayla, who has just finished up her indy dates and is heading for FCW on the expectations laid on WWE Divas, and general thoughts on SHIMMER, respecting your veterans, and news on her forthcoming book – including how close she is to the final chapter in her career. Clear yourself some time for a history lesson from the Modern Day Moolah!

Christopher P. says:

Nora Greenwald is a cunt. One of the most backstabbing lying using people I have ever known. Unless you can do something for her, she could care less about you. Her “religion” is a mask she uses to try and cover up for how much of a phony pathological liar she is. Her imaginary friend dead zombie cult leader named Jesus doesn’t change all the lies she’s told and how she’s screwed people over, me personally.

Evil Zebra says:

Being a friend of Malia’s for many years,
I have listened to numerous interviews that
she has done over the years and I just now
listented to this one and had to drop by to
say this by far is one of the BEST!

Kudos to Stew and Lee for doing an outstanding research job and a great interview!

Take it,

Looking forward to that book!
