Ringbelles Retro: A big brawl in WOW

WOW logoDespite being dormant for more than a decade, there are some members of the original Women Of Wrestling roster who returned for the new incarnation of the promotion. Among them were Jungle Grrrl, Lana Star, Terri Gold and the Caged Heat tag team, but two others are original trainers Selina Majors and Thug.

Both women have history beyond WOW, and also have history with each other. Under her more well-known name of Peggy Lee Leather, Thug worked for the World Wrestling Federation in the mid-1980s before moving to the American Wrestling Association, World Championship Wrestling and the Ladies Professional Wrestling Association. Majors – who competed primarily using the name Bambi – also worked in the AWA and WCW, where she and Leather built up quite a rivalry over the years. The pair also faced each other at WrestleReunion in 2005 on opposite teams in an 8-woman tag team match. However, it’s their feud in WOW in 2000 which we’re looking at today.

Following months of build-up, the pair were booked to face each other in a Falls Count Anywhere match – though the hostilities didn’t end after this contest, and a Steel Cage Match between the pair main evented WOW’s only PPV to date back in February 2001.
