Today, during a planned media conference, Women of Wrestling (WOW) announced the all-female wrestling promotion was approved for another season on AXS TV.
The new season will feature 24 new episodes, and is set to start in the fall of this year. Fans can attend the live tapings, being held on May 15 and 16.
Owner Jeanie Buss, founder David McLane, AXS TV Fights CEO Andrew Simon were joined by WOW’s Tessa Blanchard and The Beast to announce the renewal, and answer questions from media and fans.
“WOW is proud to partner with AXS TV to bring this incredible promotion to viewers across the country,” Buss said. “It is an honor to be able to continue this organization’s long tradition of showcasing the absolute best in all-female wrestling. The women of WOW appeal to a wide and diverse audience because of their strength, competitive spirit, and impressive athleticism, and the tremendous viewer response we’ve received is proof of that. This season was just the beginning, and we are all excited to build on our initial success with the delivery of new episodes airing in fall.”
WOW also announced the opening of their first all-women’s wrestling training center in Long Beach. Trainers for the school include Tessa Blanchard and Selina Majors.
“I am happy to join Selina Majors in providing women with a fully comprehensive training program designed specifically for them,” Blanchard said. “I was trained by men, and while that worked for me, I know a more supportive community for women wanting to join our profession will increase the participation.”

The final episode of this season airs on AXS TV this Friday, starting at 9 p.m. EST.
