Female Wrestling - The Women of Wrestlicious

The Wrestlicious Roster - The Women of Wrestlicious TakeDown

The all female wrestling promotion Wrestlicious: TakeDown was an attempt to bring back the 1980s wrestling phenomena, Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW).

Even if you think the lady wrestlers there weren't used to the best of their abilities, they gave a lot of female wrestlers from the Indy wrestling promotions a chance to shine and got them some PR.
And like they say, "There is no such thing as bad publicity except your own obituary."

The first episode was pretty much "GLOW spun through a time warp" and you could really see it in the sketches and rapping.
Yes...rapping, like the old "Glow Rap"before the matches.

I think Wrestlicious would have been better off toning down the gimmicks, concentrating more on the wrestling, and maybe getting rid of that "Barbie Malibu Dream Ring" thing they have going on.

But like I said, they had some of the best wrestling talent out there, so here is a list of the female wrestlers that Wrestlicious had listed on their roster.

A lot of the roster changed after the first few tapings, but I tried to keep things as updated as I could.

Even though nothing has happened with them since May 2010 Takedown still maintains an internet presence with it's own website and Facebook page. Though I really don't know why.

Shauna Na - Kristin Flake
Shauna Na - Kristin Flake

Of course female wrestler Kristin Flake is one of my favorites because I did an interview with her on one of my wrestling blogs.
So I'm biased.
As far as her training goes, to quote my interview with her....
"I trained with Dory Funk Jr, for a very short time in my teens. I then took several years away for school and to rehab a back injury. When I decided to start full-time in the ring, Kamakazi Kid started training me at the CWF school in Burlington, NC. I also worked there with Jeff Rudd. And I credit Amber O'Neal and Persephone for training me as far as performance at actual shows."
She made her wrestling debut in 2007.

Wrestlicious Updates - Part One

Since I did this Hub, like I said there would be, there have been some changes to the Wrestlicious: TakeDown roster.

Wrestlicious Updates - Part Two

Jimmy Hart said on The Bubba the Love Sponge Show that Wrestlicious is close to securing a television deal with MTV2.
MTV2?
Didn't MTV do the ill-fated Wrestling Society X?
Yes, we know they did.

Wrestlicious Updates - Part Three

On May 16th, 2011, Wrestlicious announced that they had a deal with New York’s Union Square Agency.
They also said in the press release that they also had a letter of intent from a Viacom-owned network to show the next season.
Since Viacom owns MTV2, this maybe what Jimmy Hart was referring to on The Bubba the Love Sponge Show.
Their YouTube site hasn't been updated in 10 months, but they still are updating their Facebook page.

Wrestlicious Updates - Part Four

On April 22nd, 2012 on their Facebook page Wrestlicious posted this....
"Wrestlicious wants to thank our fans and followers for their loyalty and patience. Our highly anticipated re-launch is drawing nearer!"

No group of women will ever match (pun unintended) Mildred Burke's wrestlers. Burke was wise enough to cash in on mixed wrestling, filming her professional women wrestlers one-on-one with the wimpiest, skinniest, no-muscled men desperate for work.

Watching these mixed wrestling matches was hilarious because the men looked like skinny 12 year old kids. Burke was intelligent enough to know her tapes wouldn't sell unless the woman won every match... I wonder how a mixed match featuring "real" men wrestling Mildred's pros would have fared. We'll never know.

My husband and I enjoy wrestling each other for fun becouse we are very close in size and strength.The girls I see featured here are much smaller than me, but I am sure some of them could overpower a fair percentage of guys their own size or smaller.If a women has exceptionally strong legs and learns how to leg lock and grapevine a man with weaker legs. Take it from me when I put on my winter hiking boots and I wrestle with my husband I can totally overpower him 90% of the time.He is 5ft11 and 190 lbs to my 5ft7 180 lbs. But although his upper body is stronger than mine,my legs can still overpower his entire body.I played college soccer and enjoy competitive biking so my legs are exceptionally strong and very muscular.Do any of you other ladies out there have stronger legs than your husbands.

Maybe you and your husband should join Mildred Burkes wrestling team. See comments above from copywriter31.

Uhhh Draculetta is obviously Daffney bro...


sabrebIade profile image

sabrebIade 5 years ago from Pennsylvania Author

Well some people say that the girl who plays Draculetta in the promo was a model and she was replaced by Daffney.

BUT, some people say that Daffney was the original and that when she signed with TNA, the character was taken over by a model.

So yes Daffney is/was/will be Draculetta.

You gotta remember, these episodes were taped in August of 2008

And then there's the "Vampira" thing....

KerryMaxCook 5 years ago

I have no doubt about that whatsoever! Please, I didn't mean to insinuate anything to the contrary! I just meant Kristin is so pretty...I look down automatically, a little shy. All the Female Wrestlers are very dedicated, and fierce looking. I compliment you all! Keep up the good work! I am a fan!
