Women’s pro wrestling organization WOW will team up with Los Angeles Comic Con to hold a two-day wrestling event that will be taped for broadcast on AXS TV, a press release revealed today.
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.
We first learned back in June that AXS planned to begin airing WOW content in 2019, joining New Japan Pro Wrestling and AXS TV Fights in the network’s combat sports (entertainment) lineup. WOW was founded by original GLOW (not the Netflix show, but the wrestling league it was based on) founder David McLane and is owned by LA Lakers owner Jeanie Buss.
Said McLane in the press release:
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. 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.
And said Buss:
These two nights of WOW entertainment will be a landmark for women’s wrestling. 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.
And said LA Comic Con CEO Chris DeMoulin:
We witnessed first hand how much our audience loved meeting the WOW Superheroes at last year’s event. 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.
