About the Wrestlers
Meet the Wrestlers!
As the first 50 Years of the 20th century slipped by,
Professional women wrestlers emerged from being freaks who frequently
barnstormed at county fairs and battled similar sized males for a chance to
win enough money to earn eating and sleeping money during their long trips.
In the early 50's Billy Wolfe legitimized these girls as well trained
vicious vixens who fought each other tooth and nail in an era called "The
Golden Age". June Byers, Nell Stewart, Mae Weston and Violet Viann were
major stars of Wolfe's stable and the bouts were often brutal, lengthy, and
scientific as women's wrestling grew in popularity.
The great Mildred Burke and Billy Wolfe were now divorced and as
the 60's were upon us, younger and more beautiful warriors replaced the
"Golden Age" women. Sue Sexton, the wily Australian, Debby Combs, Vivian
Vachon, Marie LaVerne, Jessica Rogers, Ida Mae Martinez, Penny Banner and
Kay Noble became the next group of stars as they were faster and more
technical in this era up to the 70's. In the 70's the Japanese had learned
their trade well and became the most talented women to ever step over the
ropes. American girls went to Japan in droves to earn big money, but the
skillful Japs sent many of the U.S. girls back to the States with broken
limbs and crushed egos. The Americans soon deserted Oriental rings in order
to save their bodies and only a brave few continued on trips to Japan.
The 80's & 90's saw the women headquartered in Las Vegas and
beauty became the most sought after attribute, leaving the actual wrestling
to diminish into a secondary posture. Unscrupulous promoters cheated the
girls out of money and dreams were never realized as the girls gave a good
showing, still lacking in the intensity of the 50's & 60's. Many an amateur
challenged the pros in the past fifteen Years as Christine DuPree, Belle,
Kristi E, Hollywood and many other gorgeous and athletic women met the Pros
in all kinds of action as they became Pros themselves. These fights are
amongst the best we've ever seen as these latter girls have become skillful
Pros in their own right.
