We’ve been fans of Ms. Hendrix since her OVW days. We’ve been lucky enough to see her live several times in New England at Lucky Pro Wrestling, Beyond Wrestling, and Women’s Wrestling Revolution shows. She’s a major talent and we wish her continued good success.
We have had the privilege of being permitted to record nearly 500 match videos at Showcase Pro Wrestling. Being a regional independent promotion, views are in the modest range, usually between one hundred to several hundred for most videos.
A notable exception is the debut match of a new female star, Madame Butterfly. This video has been on YouTube for 2 months and has received more than 107,000 views.
Women’s Wrestling has really arrived.
Netflix has gone seriously downhill over the past few years. They cut most of the classic movies and put their money into “original” series and lamer-than-lame “documentaries”. It’s still only 9 bucks or so a month so TWP has not cancelled it as he did cable years ago.
One bright spot is Lucha Underground seasons 1 & 2. It is overproduced, with annoying Mark Burnett nonsense and overhead but putting that aside the series gives viewers a chance to see Mexican wrestling and some of the best of the American Indies combined into a strong product.
It was fun to see Cortez Castro in action in The Temple. We saw him last fall as Ricky Reyes at New World Wrestling Extreme in Woonsocket, RI.
One of these days TWP will return to Mexico City and Arena Naucalpan. Something to look forward to.
