Women of Wrestling (WOW) might be in a position to make a big splash soon. The promotion has entered into an agreement with MGM television that should increase their production quality and give the brand wider exposure.
WOW is owned and operated by David McLane, creator of the popular GLOW promotion, and Jeanie Buss, owner of the Los Angeles Lakers.
WOW and MGM Partnership
A recent press release sent out by the promotion reads as follows:
“By challenging the status quo in transforming women’s wrestling for the past two years, we feel WOW is now positioned for tremendous growth,” said WOW Owner Jeanie Buss. “We are very excited to have MGM’s incredible management team, headed by Chairman and CEO Gary Barber and Mark Burnett, in place to grow our business model.”
“Barry and I witnessed first-hand the enormous global fan base of professional wrestling with our team’s production of Lucha Underground,” Burnett noted. “We were looking to expand on our experience doing Lucha, and WOW felt like a natural progression in the space. We love what Jeanie has developed and share in her vision of transforming this entertainment landscape. Together, we will look to elevate the WOW brand through creative production and enhanced character-driven storytelling.”
