Women of Wrestling is returning to syndication, and the former AJ Lee is joining in.
On Wednesday, Viacom CBS announced the return of WOW – Women of Wrestling. The league will return to television in Fall 2022 with weekend syndication across 160 stations covering 70% of the United States. We last saw WOW in 2020 on AXS TV.
WOW owner and executive producer Jeanie Buss is reviving the property. She said in a statement to Entertainment Tonight: “Wrestling’s presentation of women has long been very important to me, and we now are presenting the epitome in sports entertainment that will highlight the athleticism of these superstars as we reintroduce WOW.”
David McLane, creator of Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling in the 1980s and original creator of WOW, is returning as well. The biggest name for wrestling fans from the promotion event was AJ Mendez, the former AJ Lee. Mendez will be joining the company as a color commentator and executive producer. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait for that AJ Lee in-ring return.

The roster for WOW includes Tessa Blanchard and World Champion The Beast. Blanchard has been out of the wrestling spotlight after allegations of bullying and racism were made public in January 2020. She had her contract terminated from Impact Wrestling in June of that year. That forced her to drop the Impact World Championship. Blanchard has not been a television mainstay since.
Many more new faces were introduced during the event. Familiar WOW alumni include Candice LeRae, Thunder Rosa, Kiera Hogan, Jessica Havok, and Santana Garrett.
