WOW Women of Wrestling’s David McLane Says 800 Women Auditioned During The Tryouts

We put out the word that we wanted to have a tryout for WOW Women of Wrestling and were bringing it back into the marketplace. And we had 800 hundred women show up. And out of 800 women we only selected 10. I am not good at math, I don’t know what percentage that is but it’s not too good. They tried out and they had that special little thing and if anyone watched the debut last Friday night at 9’ o’clock on AXS {and/or} you watch this Friday night at 9 o’clock, you will see a phenom. Andre the Giant was a phenom. Chyna was a phenom. We have a phenom. We’ve got The Beast and she’s a phenom. During the tryouts, and I saw her tearing up. She said she watched GLOW as a little girl and wanted to become a wrestler from watching that. The nicest messages I’ve been getting from wrestling fans are from parents saying that they watched with their daughters and it’s just so special to me.

WOW Women of Wrestling’s David McLane Talks About Working with the Right Kind of Talent and How He Creates Characters

My background is character driven, I have a few {characters} and I have three that I have been trying to fill for twenty-something years and I can’t say their names because I want to find the right person. When I walk in and I think ‘we’re going to have this character and that character’ some have never come to fruition, some you find the exact right person; there is training for four or five weeks and they blow up. Some get all the way and get on television for one event and then they’re not good in the locker room, they’re a cancer so we have to get rid of them, some don’t show up to work on time, some don’t do what their supposed to do. If there not professional they have to go. So, I grab the person’s persona listen to their background story and come up with a name. Jungle Grrrl’s (Girl) parents were from the Amazon, they were from Colombia. Then she came into the ring and leaped off the third rope like Jimmy Snuka and I just hit the mat and I said ‘that’s Jungle Grrrl!’

WOW Women of Wrestling’s David McLane Talks About The First Time He Met Tessa Blanchard

Selina Majors kept telling me ‘You have to hire this Tessa Blanchard. You have to hire her.’ And I said, ‘I’m not going to hire somebody because their last name is famous. I said forget it. I was at a local event here in LA, I was backstage and literally she picked up something, she had just finished wrestling, she was gonna eat and our elbows hit. Just like that… I said ‘what are you gonna do?’ and she says ‘ I’m gonna grab a bite to eat now I am done for night’ And I said, ‘want company?’ she said ‘ sure sit with me.’ And we sat, and she had just signed her IMPACT deal at the time. After we spoke, I walked away and I told Bambi {Selina Majors} ‘ she will be in WOW Women of Wrestling’. She’s a great person and she’s professional and has the same vision for Women’s Wrestling.

WOW Women of Wrestling’s David McLane On Why He Is A Firm Believer in Characters and Authenticity

I am a firm believer in the characters. Let’s say Undertaker, who would he be without Undertaker? People just love the Undertaker. You look at The Rock, he grew into the Rock you look at Stone Cold he grew into that. Some may even say Triple H grew into that. Cause many of them started at Jarret’s down at Jarret’s territory wrestling so they found themselves and became those superstars due to authenticity, yourself {direct to Sean}, your authenticity is what made you into a superstar.

WOW Women of Wrestling’s David McLane Talks About How the GLOW Documentary Led To WOW

Without Mt. Fiji, the documentary may not have resonated that well. Angela aka Little Egypt was able to reconnect all of the women from GLOW to see Mt. Fiji because she was in poor health. That reunion really made the documentary. The documentary then made it to Netflix. The two women who helped produce GLOW were inspired after watching it and went to Jenji Kohan. The documentary comes out, and that I credit with being the main ingredient to put WOW on it’s platform with AXS TV every Friday night at 9pm in primetime.

Welcome everyone to Flaming Pearl Oracles!  This will be the article discussing future events and match results through out Asia.

Before I begin, know that Asian and many in the Pacific do not provide results like you are accustomed to.  First, the promotions do not provide complete results, rather only one or two matches.  Secondly, unless you watch the matches (a few promotions are on ‘Nothing Else on TV’ livestream) you will not be provided details regarding how a match took place.

Finally, many of their articles are more advertisement than substance.  I will work to get as much information as I can to provide you the fullest account possible.

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: Jim Ross and AEW, Dana Warrior and WWE creative, and changes to a WreslteMania Match? (3/22/19)

News here! Commentary today on Jim Ross and AEW, Dana Warrior and WWE creative, and changes to a WreslteMania Match ?



Dana Warrior

News here! Commentary today on Jim Ross and AEW, Dana Warrior and WWE creative, and changes to a WreslteMania Match ?

WWE Re-considering Kurt Angle’s WrestleMania Match ?

As I discussed in yesterday’s shuffle, there has been a lot of backlash in regards to Baron Corbin being named Kurt Angle’s opponent for his retirement match at WrestleMania. Originally, it had been widely reported that there are no plans to change the matchup. However, that looks like it could possibly changes. The Twitter account @WrestleVotes (an account that is usually correct with wrestling rumors) Tweeted today that the match is being re-considered.

Jason’s Take

Not surprised by this one. As I said yesterday, I am not a fan of Angle, but he deserved better. If they do change it, will they go with John Cena ?

Jim Ross To AEW?

We know that Jim Ross is finishing up with the WWE this month, and has long been rumored to be a part of AEW. Today, Ross appeared on Outside The Lines, and confirmed he has had talks with AEW.

Jason’s Take

Ross jumping to AEW is probably a worse kept secret than Kenny Omega joining the company. Ross being a part of the AEW announce team would give the company a recognizable voice that many American fans will recognize. But, much like I asked yesterday, what does bringing in former WWE wrestlers, announcers, and WCW match types due to generate interest? Are we moving forward or reliving the past ?


Speaking of actual AEW roster additions, the company announced today in the latest edition of their YouTube series The Road To Double Or Nothing, that IMPACT knockout Allie will be joining the company.

Jason’s Take

Allie is a great addition to the AEW women’s division. From what little I watch of IMPACT, Allie has been more than entertaining.

Update On Dana Warrior’s Creative Role

If you have been following the Chairshot the past few weeks (and if you haven’t, why the hell not?) you have seen many of the writers, including myself, discuss Dana Warrior and her roll on the creative team. Earlier this week I discussed her recent promotion to a full time creative role. Dave Meltzer noted today that there recently was an important creative meeting that other creative team members were not a part of.

Jason’s Take

It’s a slow news day, and I like to posted five news items. So to be honest, I’m killing space with this one. In all seriousness though, great reporting by Dave Meltzer. That’s why you should be reading the Chairshot everyday. We try to weed out the BS.

Original WrestleMania Plans For Rey Mysterio

This week on SmackDown Live, it was confirmed that Rey Mysterio would be taking on Samoa Joe for the United States championship at WrestleMania. The Wrestling Observer noted that there were originally other plans for Mysterio. The original plan was for Andrade vs. Mysterio in a hair vs. mask match

Jason’s Take

Mysterio vs Andrade at WreslteMania would have been a very entertaining match.
