Ringbelles Retro: A look back at Women’s Extreme Wrestling

WEW posterAfter six years away, Women’s Extreme Wrestling is reportedly planning a return to TV, according to PWInsider. A poster has been released for a PPV called Booty Whipping, though it seems that it could be a compilation of previous events.

We have reviewed a WEW – former known as Women’s Erotic Wrestling – DVD in the past, and while it had its moments, we weren’t very impressed with Nude War Games. However, considering it ran for six years, it did fine for itself as a company and it gave women wrestlers another forum to hone their craft. That’s why we’ve posted a video from WEW’s YouTube channel.

For example, Nude Takedown from May 20, 2007 features the likes of Velvet Sky, April Hunter, Annie Social, Sumie Sakai, Amy Lee, Daffney, Nikki Roxx, Simply Luscious, Christie Ricci, ODB, Amber O’Neal, Francine and Mercedes Martinez. You can watch the video after the jump, but be ready for some pretty sexist commentary and suggestive content. (more…)


Ringbelles Retro: Before they were stars

Women’s Extreme Wrestling may not have the best of reputations – and we’re not keen on the sexual overtones on their shows – but in its defence, it was holding regular all-women’s shows in front of enthusiastic crowds and were shown on pay-per-view and released on video and DVD. As a result, it was a great place for aspiring female grapplers to get some more exposure – the good kind.

The video we have for you as part of today’s Retro is the full WEW Return of the PWO show from May 7, 2005, featuring a number of names who have gone on to bigger and better things. As well as established names like WEW Champion Jazz and Tammy Lynn Sytch, you can see women like Mercedes Martinez, ODB, Lacey, Amber O’Neal, Krissy Vaine and Simply Luscious. In addition, there are a couple who found fortune under different names such as Talia Madison (who is now Velvet Sky) and Cle-Ho-Patra (AKA Shelly Martinez, Ariel or Salinas). As mentioned – you may not agree with the ethos of the promotion, but it gave aspiring wrestlers the chance to do their thing, and for that, it may be worth giving it a chance and watching the video after the jump.
