Welcome to Wrestling Inc’s recap 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.
Previously on WOW, The Beast ran through another competitor on her path towards dethroning world champion Tessa Blanchard. Jungle Grrrl would attack the Beast with a steel chair after, while Blanchard watched on. Voice-over asks, “Will the The Beast get her revenge?”
To the ring, David McLane gives the show his signature welcome. The Beast is out for a promo. “Jungle Grrrl doesn’t want none of the Beast. She can’t handle the Beast.” McLane then announces that a number one contender’s match between The Beast and Jungle Grrrl will be taking place in tonight’s main event. To ensure that there is a winner, Tessa Blanchard will be barred from ringside.
