  • The first all-women's pay-per-view... happened 26 years ago? In 1989, the LPWA (Ladies' Professional Wrestling Association) was formed by Tor Berg.  It was essentially the successor to GLOW, but opted for a more serious approach.  In 1992, they held their first pay-per-view event and the first all-women's pro-wrestling pay-per-view event.  The WWE's Evolution show, while it will have more eyeballs watching and a bigger house in attendance, is not, despite what they say, the first all-women's pay-per-view.1.

  • October is Italian-American Heritage October is Italian-American Heritage Month in the United States.  Columbus Day, despite all its controversies, is traditionally something of an Italian pride holiday as Christopher Columbus was originally from Italy.  While the presence of Italian culture in the United States may not seem unusual today, they came in waves during the late 1800s and early 1900s and were not always well received.  In the pro-wrestling realm, Italians were not bringing wrestling traditions like other Europeans were, but they could bring in the fans, especially in the urban areas like New York City, Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore, where significant "Little Italy" neighborhoods developed.  In Canada, Toronto and Montreal both had significant Italian immigrant communities worth noting.  While World War ...

  • NWA Anniversary Shows (1998-2018) On October 21st, the current version of the National Wrestling Alliance will be offering up their 70th Anniversary show.  It is the 10th show since the quasi-tradition started with a Dennis Coralluzzo show in New Jersey in 1998.  Legend has it that Coralluzzo "lost" the proceeds from the show and that led to his departure from the NWA.The anniversary shows continued annually for the next seven years in all the NWA hotbeds - North Carolina, Texas, Georgia, Tennessee...and Winnipeg?The shows have largely been mediocre independent shows with a strange mix of indy darlings, notable names of the past and the local promoter's favorites.  The 52nd and 57th Anniversary shows were both held at the historic Nashville ...
