They can separate themselves by wearing one piece traditional wrestling gear and have a mixed wrestling division with lots of big heel men.
No! Sorry I'm not going to argue with you.
Your point is ridiculous, but here's an idea. Watch B.L.O.W.

Re: Official Indy Womens Discussion Thread

It's not ridiculous, they just use the slamminladies formula on a live show. It is the same company so why not? They will be more successful if the do this, it is what fans want excluding a small minority who only want one type of wrestling. B.L.O.W. isn't doing what I'm talking about.

Re: Official Indy Womens Discussion Thread

Calling Shine Shimmer 2.0 is like saying PWG is RoH 2.0. It's the same concept because it involves women actually wrestling and not simply sexually grunting inbetween botched moves because they're nothing more than ill-trained, washed-up models. I'm pretty damn sure if Shine can put out a good product those Shimmer fans will support Shine, too. You don't see Indy fans supporting only one promotion.

Honestly? It gives more opportunity to more female wrestlers to portray that, yes, they can work a male predominant sport just as good as men. Let's stop portraying women as nothing more than sexual objects. There are more than enough promotions doing that to warrant a serious rethink of what you're asking. Sex-orientated female wrestling is the norm, asking for more is just spilling over an already saturated environ. The niche market lies in showcasing female talent, and there is a reasonably successful turnover in doing so.

They all portray themselves like that. Name one woman in wrestling who's goal isn't to be a Diva? Name one who doesn't portray themselves sexually? If they were opposed to being seen and enjoyed sexually they wouldn't aspire to be Divas and knockouts and work for any of the wrestling companies out there. Women like looking nice for men.

I'll name you two, MsChif & Daizee Haze. Neither have ever wanted to go to the WWE or TNA and don't sexualise anything about themselves.

A great match that I found on YouTube, a Best of 3 Falls Match between Hailey Hatred and Ayumi Kurihara (REINA). I love how this promotion incorporate elements of Lucha Libre with the Joshi style, a bit more traditional lucha than DragonGate but still fine by me. Not big on Puro these days but I may need to check out more of Hailey Hatred, I've been hearing great things about her for years.
