Style: Lady Wrestlers
Women’s wrestling started as a novelty act between mens bouts in the 1940s. It didn’t take long for the women to be topping the bill all on their own. The 1950’s and 60’s were considered the “Golden Age” of womens wrestling and The Fabulous Moolah was Queen (see below). The idea of one tough, scantily clad (for the 50’s) babe kicking another scantily clad babes’ ass was a dream come true for the repressed 1950’s male. Just like everything else cool about the 60’s, lady wrestling simply faded away with the 70’s – and was replaced with muscle bound men fake smacking the shit out of each other. Enter Hulk Hogan, et al.
