Last year, I made a list of ten fantastic women’s matches that I felt needed to be appreciated by more people. But clearly, ten wasn’t enough. Although, times have thankfully changed, there are dozens of fantastic women’s wrestling matches that have happened in the last three decades that were unfortunately overlooked and overshadowed by bikini contests and evening gown matches. It’s time to give just some of those great matches the appreciation they deserve: Here are 10 More Women’s Wrestling Matches You Need to See.
As evident by my list of the Top 25 Best Matches of the Year, 2016 was an absolutely incredible year for wrestling. It was crammed full of historic events, fantastic moments, and most importantly, amazing, memorable matches. However, even in such a landmark year for this wonderful sport, not everything was up to the world class standard. There were plenty of globally exposed matches from Vinny Mac’s House of Graps that have slipped through our minds in just less than a year. Even if you’re WWE through and through, you’ll be scratching your head when reading this one. Here are the Top 20 Big WWE Matches from 2016 that You’ve Probably Already Forgotten About.

As much as I adore wrestling, it has to be said that it does have its problems. Possibly the biggest drawback of all to this industry is its clear gender inequalities. As someone who’s focused the majority of their university studies on sexism, feminism, and representations of gender, it pains me that one of my biggest loves in life is plagued with unequal gender opportunities, and at times, overt sexism. Thankfully though, gone are the days of the Bra and Panties match, and bikini contests, as the major companies have finally realised that the fans aren’t actually watching their products for partial nudity and mild titillation, we’re watching for some good ol’ fashion wrasslin’.
Whether it’s the breaking of glass, a haunting gong, or the infamous words, “I’M AN ASS MAN!”, entrance music is there to let you know exactly who you’re about to see. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad, sometimes it’s GLORIOUS! (we’ll get to that later) But what’s the best current entrance music in the house of Vinny Mac? Here are my top 15 entrance themes in WWE today.
