Little Girls and Iron Women: NXT TakeOver Makes Women's Wrestling History

Wednesday’s NXT TakeOver: Respect was the site of two firsts: for the first time, two women competed in an Iron Man match, and for the first time, two women closed the show at a WWE special event. It was not the first time, however, that women proved their abilities to a sport (and a company) that for too long refused… »10/09/15 9:00am10/09/15 9:00am


The Short, Spray-Tanned History of Women's Wrestling at SummerSlam

This Sunday, the factions formed by WWE’s now-branded #DivaRevolution will face off in a three-team elimination match at SummerSlam, professional wrestling’s “biggest party of the summer.” The event is one of WWE’s Big Four pay-per-views, second only to WrestleMania in hype and bombast; the collision of this annual… »8/18/15 11:45am8/18/15 11:45am

Twilight of the Divas: The NXT Revolution in Women's Wrestling Is Here

A revolution began Monday night in the world of women’s athletics. To be fair, the women involved are called divas, this particular realm of athletics goes by the winking nom de plume of sports entertainment, and the revolution was sanctioned—orchestrated, even—by those called, without a dash of irony, The Authority. »7/14/15 12:00pm7/14/15 12:00pm

Black Santa Fought White Santa on the WWE and Won

I don't know whether this brings the pseudo-debate about whether Santa is white or black to a close, but last night on the WWE, a black Santa Claus ("Good Santa") fought a white Santa Claus ("Bad Santa") and the black Santa won. I dunno — considering how the WWE is about as legitimate as Fox News and their supposed… »12/24/13 7:00pm12/24/13 7:00pm

Pro-Wrestling Manager Apologizes for Making Dumbest Rape Joke Ever on Live Television

Another Fighter Politely Offers to Kick Chris Brown's Ass

Chris Brown just can't seem to stop pissing off gigantic people who want to punch him in the face. Earlier this week, the perpetually shit eating grin-wearing singer once again couldn't resist the siren's call of spazzing out at a detractor on Twitter, accusing him of having shrunken genitalia. That detractor was… »2/22/12 6:45pm2/22/12 6:45pm

Ferocia Coutura Will Spray You In The Eyes And Knock You When You're Down

Last night's challenge on Project Runway was the most insane thing ever. And not insane in a "make-a-dress-out-of-corn-husks" sort of way. Nope, reaching a brand new plateau of wacky, this week the designers were introduced to the "divas" of the WWE and asked to design them new wrestling costumes. Initial reaction:… »2/07/08 5:00pm2/07/08 5:00pm
