Over the years many smart, sexy and powerful women have graced the squared circle. Some of them broke barriers and did things that no one ever imagined. Some of them thrilled us in ways that cannot be explained. These women left a lasting impression upon us, and they will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
However, in spite of their accomplishments, these women have eternally remained unappreciated and today rather cruelly they are reduced to being looked at as a joke.
Women in pro wrestling have constantly faced ridicule and have never been completely rewarded with the credit they deserve. They have fought and clawed through this so called “man’s world,” and continue to do so.
One can call them a “piss break” if one likes, but to me and many others they are and have always been the heart and soul of WWE. The reason is obvious, i.e. the glorious contribution of these women to the WWE.
It’s time everyone pauses to give these women a standing ovation. Without these women, I feel the WWE would never be the same. It hurts to see them not getting their due, but it is high time now. I wish to thank every single woman who has stepped into that ring for giving me memories to take with me for the rest of my life.
That is what Mariah had to say when she suggested me the idea of having a week of appreciation for women of pro wrestling. Her points were valid. Her passion was infectious, and it did me in.
During the women’s appreciation week we have seen articles that have looked at them from several different angles. From the goddesses on both sides of the pacific to the causes of women’s perish and from history to the present, our talented bleacher report writers covered it all.
Today, I am going to blend it all together and add my own little flavor. I am going to have a look at 10 reasons to respect the women of pro wrestling. Of course, there are way more reasons to admire them, but I will try to put some of the important ones in perspective here.
Let the ride begin.
