WOW: Women of Wrestling had potential, but was short-lived thanks to sloppy writing and lazy performances.
David McLane, the man responsible for the mid-eighties "GLOW: Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling" returns with another all-women's wrestling show. His show did have potential, but unfortunately, did not last and was only survived by one pay-per-view event ("WOW Unleashed"). McLane's lack of planning was the reason why WOW could not continue after the first season. If he hired professional writers then he would have had a chance. Instead we're treated to an hour of sloppy writing and lazy performances.
On the plus side, he chose a variety of beautiful and athletic women. Some were all business in the ring and delivered the goods (Terri Gold and Roxy Powers come to mind), but most of the time was wasted on the wrestlers who spend too much time talking trash and not showing much ring action. Most of their fight scenes were well choreographed, but some of their finishing moves are similar to the WWE superstars' moves.
If David McLane wanted to stay employed, he could've done what former WCW owner Eric Bischoff did and sell his show to WWE owner Vince McMahon, but no. He was probably afraid that his WOW superstars would get eaten alive by the WWE divas. Only Terri Gold (Heather Millard) and Roxy Powers (Natalie Yeo) would have the ability to come out on top (IMHO). In the future, Mr. McLane, please think twice or plan more carefully before making another all-women's wrestling show. My evaluation: C+.
