Classic Ladies Wrestling

Updated on July 7, 2010

Ladies Professional Wrestling Association

The LPWA was founded in 1989 and featured the best female athletes in pro wrestling. The Ladies Professional Wrestling Association was the first all-female promotion to take wrestling seriously. Instead of focusing on the glamor aspect, they showcased actual ring ability. This commitment to the sport quickly won it fans.

Unfortunately, the company would last only a few years before running out of money. The LPWA folded in 1992, shortly after holding their first Pay-Per-View event.

Many of the stars from the LPWA would go on to become featured talent in the bigger promotions like WWF and WCW. Madusa Miceli would wrestle as Alundra Blazye in the WWF before moving to WCW. You may remember the controversy she stirred up when she dumped the WWF belt in a trash can on TV. Terri Power would become known as Tori, and was involved in a number of storylines.
