Nylons and Midriffs: Back to School (SummerSlam Review, August 13, 2019)

School is back in session, good wrestling fans! Well, for me, at least. After taking a must-needed break from WWE over the last several weeks, I am back to my old tricks -- giving you the good, bad, and thorny from Sunday's SummerSlam pay-per-view. For the most part, I've not sat and watched weekly WWE … Continue reading Nylons and Midriffs: Back to School (SummerSlam Review, August 13, 2019)

Nylons and Midriffs: Best of Both Worlds? (July 2, 2019)

Image credit: comicbook.com Two weeks have passed, good wrestling fans, and I am still bored. I feel that every week I watch the WWE product, I sink deeper into an abyss of grey. I don't feel any investment in the women's storylines, but this is mostly because, as always, WWE is failing to create women's … Continue reading Nylons and Midriffs: Best of Both Worlds?

Nylons and Midriffs: Checks and Championships (May 22, 2019)

I'll be honest with you all. My interest in the WWE product has dipped drastically since WrestleMania. As we all know, we were heralded into a "new era" several months ago, with promises of new matchups and roster changes sure to revitalize a bland product. We got this for a hot minute but, as expected, … Continue reading Nylons and Midriffs: Checks and Championships (May 22, 2019)

Nylons and Midriffs: Boss of Who? (April 22, 2019)

It has been an interesting two weeks since WrestleMania for the women's division. I know the drama surrounding a certain female wrestler has filled the dirt sheets for the better part of that time (and don't worry, we'll get to that), but in the midst of that controversy, there was also a Superstar Shakeup. Title … Continue reading Nylons and Midriffs: Boss of Who? (April 22, 2019)

Nylons and Midriffs: WrestleMania Review (April 11, 2019)

WrestleMania "weekend" has finally come to an end and whew! I am just about burnt out on wrestling content! As I discussed a little before WrestleMania, there were only two women's matches on the main card. And although they both were given decent time (certainly compared to the last few Manias), I still found myself … Continue reading Nylons and Midriffs: WrestleMania Review (April 11, 2019)

Nylons and Midriffs: The Year of the Woman (Year In Review, 2018)

While it's a bit corny to say, there really isn't a better time to be a fan of women's wrestling in WWE. Through the ups and the downs, this year was truly unforgettable for the division and fans who have been clamoring for women's progressivism since the Attitude Era. Sure, there are some kinks to … Continue reading Nylons and Midriffs: The Year of the Woman (Year In Review, 2018)

Nylons and Midriffs: A Fall from Grace (November 19, 2018)

How are you doing, good wrestling fans? I hope you all are staying warm and gearing up for the holidays. I have not yet begun my Christmas shopping, as I’m still in disbelief that we are already knocking on 2019’s door. With Thanksgiving in a few days, I thought this week we could play around … Continue reading Nylons and Midriffs: A Fall from Grace (November 19, 2018)

Hello, good wrestling fans! I'm back with another entry into the Nylons and Midriffs series. Not exactly the same time as I promised in my last post, but 'tis life sometimes. Due to circumstances out of my control, this post is one week later than I hoped it would be. Therefore, this week I'll discuss … Continue reading Nylons and Midriffs: What’s Happening in Women’s Wrestling (June 14, 2018)

Taking Back Today: Reconciling Subversiveness with Status Quo in Women’s Royal Rumble

It began as anyone may have expected it would, with two solid workers from WWE's women's division, Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch, getting the crowd hot for the first-ever women's Royal Rumble. Both competitors are two of the most memorable women to ever step foot in a ring, with Banks as the biracial, purple-haired cousin … Continue reading Taking Back Today: Reconciling Subversiveness with Status Quo in Women’s Royal Rumble
