The Revolution and Evolution of Women’s Wrestling Is Just Getting Started

March may be over but Women’s HERstory continues to be written.

Over on Black Girl Nerds I discuss the latest renaissance in Women’s Wrestling and share how Hall of Famer Gail Kim and the other Knockouts of Impact Wrestling threw down the gauntlet in raising the standard of excellence which in turn has resulted in the WWE, NWA, and AEW and the rest of the industry responding in kind.



Let’s get into it.

The Best Television Shows of 2018

While 2018 brought more than a few classics to the big screen, the small screen didn’t disappoint either. 2018 saw a year of reboots, new classics, long overdue new seasons, and a whole lot of binge-watching.

someone else: really, but you’re so intelligent.

i’ve watched professional wrestling my entire life and i watch it in the same vain that i watch star trek or grey’s anatomy or the practice; for pure entertainment. it’s part soap opera with a healthy dose of violence. what’s not to love? i’ve followed the sport in and outside of the squared circle and have nothing but the utmost respect for the men and women, these world class athletes, who put their bodies on the line and stay on the road 250 days out of the year just to entertain the fans. however there are other reasons why i enjoy professional wrestling.

after much thought and research i thought i would take this opportunity and present some very well thought out and critical reasons why men and women should tune in and watch sports entertainment each and every week.

i challenge anyone to dispute my reasoning:
