| These women were great!
I have never seen a wrestling match with women. I don't know how common it was in the early seventies when I used to see some wrestling on TV when sitting at the bar on Sunday morning, but there was never any on. I have never seen the cuties that wrestle for the WWE now. So, I have nothing to compare, but I was just simply fascinated listening to these women and seeing clips from their matches in the 40s and 50s.

These women were the real thing. They were out there putting their bodies on the line and giving it all they had. Some complained that they were financially abused, but then I see them talk about all the things they could now buy that they couldn't before, so I don't know.

These were athletes in every sense of the word; not bimbo's that are doing it just to titillate.
