Have you listened to the latest Women Of Wrestling Podcast yet? It was released on Friday to mark five years since the passing of Sensational Sherri, featuring a group of men and women who knew her well – Bill Apter, Candi Divine, Marianne Ryan, Lexie Fyfe & “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase. Seriously, if you haven’t had a chance to hear it yet, give it a download, if only for the Ric Flair story that Marianne Ryan tells…
At the bottom of the piece, there are a few links to some videos from Sherri’s career, including one of her matches with Devine, and some other skits and moments. However, we reckon we could add a couple of extra matches from her time in the WWF before she became the manager of Randy Savage. As a result, we bring you this week’s Retro featuring two matches from the tail end of 1987.
The first is from the first ever Survivor Series on November 26, with then-WWF Women’s Champion Sherri captaining a team consisting of Dawn Marie (no, not that one), Donna Christianello and then-WWF Women’s Tag Team Champions the Glamour Girls (Judy Martin & Leilani Kai) taking on the Fabulous Moolah‘s quintet, also including Velvet McIntyre, Rockin’ Robin and Noriyo Tateno & Itsuki Yamazaki of the Jumping Bomb Angels. The other is from a month later with Sherri defending her Women’s Title against Robin in Madison Square Garden. (more…)
K&S WrestleFest is building up towards another of its wrestling conventions this August, but in a twist, this one will feature just women.
Four names have been announced for “A Hot Summer’s Night” at the Ramada Hotel at Philadelphia Airport on Saturday August 27: former WWF and AWA Women’s Champion and WWE Hall Of Famer Wendi Richter, reigning OVW Women’s Champion Lady Jojo (formerly known as Sojo Bolt in TNA and Josie in SHIMMER), former WWF Women’s Champion and Cauliflour Alley Club’s recipient of the 2011 Women’s Wrestling Award Rockin’ Robin, and the 6’9″ Isis The Amazon.
Tickets will go on sale in July, and more names are expected to be announced in the coming weeks, though t’s already been confirmed that Highspots and RF Video will also be there for all your merchandise needs. If you’re in the area or can get there, don’t miss this – Wendi Richter doesn’t make many public appearances, so take advantage of this opportunity to meet one of the most popular female wrestlers of the 1980s in person.
