WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy Hart Launching All-Women's Wrestling Show This Fall
WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy Hart has plans to launch an all-female wrestling show called "Wrestlicious" this coming fall.
A bizarre promotional video touting the upcoming show has hit YouTube and it comes off as a campy mix of the defunct wrestling promotion GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling), the short-lived "WOW: Women of Wrestling" promotion from 2000-2001, and the AWA's WrestleRock Rumble music video from the 1980s.
Perhaps the most notable character featured in the video is Lacey Von Erich, the 22-year-old daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Kerry Von Erich, who is seen in the video cutting a promo touting her family ties and finishing maneuver — "The Claw." Unlike many of the other characters shown in the video, they're allowing her to use her real name instead of a tacky stage name.
Model Lana Kinnear is also featured in the video cutting a promo. She will be going under the name "Malibu McKenzie." Kinnear has previous wrestling experience as she appeared in the short-lived "WOW: Women of Wrestling" promotion as the pink-belted Lana Star. She also made an appearance on Raw in December 2004 in a limbo contest.
Other notable names spotted in the video include Lizzy Valentine, Daizee Haze, Portia Perez, Daffney and Becky Bayless. Also, former Ohio Valley Wrestling women's wrestler Roni Jonah appears to be the vampire character "Draculeta," and semi-retired adult film actress Trina Michaels looks to be one of the referees.
2005 WWE Diva Search runner-up Leyla Milani will be hosting the show alongside Hart
