Meet the pro wrestlers of WOW

- Pro Wrestling has traditionally been a man’s sport, but thanks to organizations like WOW (Women of Wrestling), it’s the females who are taking center stage.

FOX11 Los Angeles stopped by a practice with some of the wrestlers to get a behind the scenes look at what drives them.

While wrestlers demonstrated moves in the ring, one explained their rise in the industry saying, “It’s really gone from the women being the sideshow and being accompanied by the men, and just being there to make the men look good, to the women being their own entity.”

And they can kick some serious butt! These femme fatales, performing as heroes and villains, put on quite a show, and they’d “rather throw ya than know ya!”

The members of WOW say they use the entertainment platform to empower themselves and women everywhere and that they’re “Trying to just promote the strength of women. Inspire, motivate, and just give pure entertainment.”

Watching a match is a thrilling escape from from everyday life, but do you think you have what it takes to throwdown between the ropes like these wrestlers?
