WOW (Women Of Wrestling), is, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin of course]], an American all-women's ProfessionalWrestling promotion. It was started by David [=McLane=], who had previously created Wrestling/{{GLOW}} in the 1980s, and debuted in 2000. It closed in early 2001 after their lone PPV, ''WOW Unleashed'' on February 4, 2001. It was revived in 2012, the same time SHINE spunoff from Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} and brought in some of the associated wrestlers to compete against the established roster. The original show was syndicated and the current version airs on Creator/{{AXS TV}}.

* TheCheerleader: Team Spirit, who were the good version.



* GarbageWrestler: Riot brought [[Wrestling/ChristinaVonEerie Razor]] into WOW after seeing just how much Razor was willing to bleed, deciding WOW needed more like her.



* GreenEyedMonster: When second generation wrestler and internationally scouted Santana Garrett came to GLOW, Lana Star feared she would be a dangerous rival and came up with several complicated plans to destroy Garrett. If Star had [[NiceJobFixingItVillain just left things alone]] it's likely Garrett would have remained in the TagTeam division, paying the singles belt and Star little mind.



* IHaveTheHighGround: Jungle Grrrl was known for climbing up on things, even she wasn't using her signature superplex or diving splash.



* PomPomGirl: Team Spirit, who were the good version. Patti became and evil version due to Lana Star's corruption, but Star couldn't make her evil enough and dropped her. She was peppy and enthusiastic throughout.



* SheCleansUpNicely: Jungle Grrrl adapted to post industrial society very quickly and tended to look ready for nightclub dancing off ring. She quickly reverted to her "savage" ways when it was time to work.



* SpicyLatina: "The Latina Super Woman" Caliente.
* [[ManlyMenCanHunt Strong Women Can Hunt]]: Jessie Jones. She's billed from Bardstown, KY and her "Dislike" is "People who can't hunt."

to:

* SpicyLatina: "The Latina Super Woman" Caliente.
Caliente. Loca to a lesser extent and Jungle Grrrl to a lesser one still.
* SpiritualAntithesis: GLOW was a camp, cheesecake, episodic sitcom that happened to be about pro wrestling. WOW is a cheesecake sports league that [[DownplayedTrope while still camp]] compared to most pro wrestling is nonetheless much more focused build ups and matches.
* [[ManlyMenCanHunt Strong Women Can Hunt]]: Jungle Grrrl talked more than a little about hunting. Jessie Jones. She's Jones is billed from Bardstown, KY and her "Dislike" is "People who can't hunt."


Added DiffLines:

* TheAce
** Terri Gold was promoted as WOW's best, and for years was the only wrestler capable of beating Jungle Grrrl. Jungle Grrrl herself became this after the revival. Garrett had some questioning if she could knock Grrrl off but Lana Star interfered with that, so Wrestling/TessaBlanchard was the one to finally beat her.
** Caged Heat in TagTeam action until The All American Girls came in the revival.
* TheGiant: Slam Dunk was tall with little other upside.

* {{Expy}}: Caged Heat were like a cross-wiring of The Gangstas (Wrestling/NewJack and Mustafa) and Wrestling/TheDudleyBoys, playing wrestling convicts who used the Dudleys' Dudley Death Drop Finishing Move, calling it Capital Punishment, and their "Whazzup" GroinAttack [[UseYourHead Diving Headbutt]].
