AXS TV sent Fightful.com the following announcing WOW's television tapings.
WOW World Champion, Santana Garrett and more than 25 inspiring WOW Superheroes will battle in action-packed back-to-back matches at 7:30 p.m. PT Wednesday, October 10 and Thursday, October 11, at the Belasco Theater in Downtown Los Angeles. Los Angeles Comic Con – which draws crowds of close to 100,000 each year – has teamed up with WOW Owner Jeanie Buss and WOW Founder David McLane to present the October events. AXS TV will capture this high-flying spectacle for broadcast on their network, starting in early 2019. Tickets are now on sale at Ticketmaster.com, with detailed information found at WOWE.com.
Women’s wrestling has been a growing pop culture phenomenon for the past few years, fueled in part by the success of the Netflix series GLOW, leading to a new appreciation for the entertainment value and athleticism of women who choose to battle in the ring … and sometimes outside of it too.
“The marquee matchups at the Belasco Theater will include former WOW champion and fan favorite Jungle Grrrl, the Governor’s Daughter, Abilene Maverick, The All Natural, Khloe Hurtz who promises to have her Ring Rats fashionably attired for her ring entrance, The Temptress and making her return to WOW from the graveyard, Holidead,” WOW founder and matchmaker (and creator of the original GLOW) David McLane says. “It doesn’t stop there; fans will be captivated with The Beast, an athletic specimen not seen in wrestling before, plus in the WOW ring for the first time, the Mexican Warrior, Azteca and 19-year-old California sensation, Faithy J., who not only battles but also raps with the best of them.”
“We witnessed first hand how much our audience loved meeting the WOW Superheroes at last year’s event,” Los Angeles Comic Con CEO Chris DeMoulin noted. “Everything pop-culture has a home at L.A. Comic Con, and we’re co-sponsoring this event because we know our fans will love to see the real-life WOW Superheroes heroines and villains in action live.”
“These two nights of WOW entertainment will be a landmark for women’s wrestling,” WOW Owner Jeanie Buss said. Buss, whose day job is Owner and President of the L.A. Lakers, also noted, “We have been listening to the fans of wrestling for several years, and we know they will love the live experience and be even more thrilled with the television presentation on AXS TV. And Los Angeles Comic Con is the perfect organization for WOW to team up with, as our WOW Superheroes fit in perfectly with the Comic Con’s fun, fantasy spirit.”
