Welcome to Wrestling Inc's recap of the season two premiere of WOW (Women of Wrestling). Tonight's episode takes place from the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles California, and aired on AXS TV. Enjoy the show, and sound off in the comments.
David McLane welcomes us to the show with his signature introduction. A video recap of season one of WOW is replayed, including Tessa Blanchard's campaign to become the world champion. Footage also recalls Jungle Grrrl's winning streak ending thanks to an assist from The Beast. Season one ended with Havok, The Beast, Jungle Grrrl, and Tessa Blanchard all having a face-off.
Back to the arena. McLane introduces the champ, Tessa Blanchard. Crowd erupts. Blanchard gets on the microphone and tells the crowd that she is undeniable. "I am one of the best in the world. I am the world champion. I am the biggest star in this industry, and I am the baddest b**ch in this building." That brings out The Beast. She says that Blanchard is only the champ because she allows her to be. They get into each other's faces. Jungle Grrrl is out next, who reminds Blanchard that it took The Beast and Blanchard's duel efforts to hand her a loss in WOW. Blanchard asks McLane to put Jungle Grrrl and The Beast in the ring together to figure out a number one contender. The champ goes to leave...Havok is here! She chases Blanchard back into the ring. This leads McLane to book a triple-threat elimination match for tonight's main event!

She says that against their will, she joined WOW to pursue her dream of becoming a professional wrestler. She removes the mask and says she no longer wants to hide behind the mask. She re-introduces herself Reyna Reyes, and tells us that she can't wait to prove to the world what she can do. McLane tells us that Reyes will partner with Princess Aussie later in the night as they compete in a tag tournament to crown the first WOW tag team champions of this new era.
