UK Women's Wrestling - Rusty Blair vs Tina Starr

Here's a picture of Old School UK lady pro wrestlers Rusty Blair (brunette) and Tina Starr (blonde) mixing it up back in the day.
I'm really thinking about making a blog just for UK wrestling.

Ann Casey - Barefoot Women Wrestlers

One of the greatest barefoot women wrestlers of all time is Ann Casey.
(Okay, she was one of the greatest wrestlers period)
Ann was born on September 29th, 1938 in Saraland, Alabama.

Of course I dont just think she was one of the greatest because she is my friend on Facebook.
She really was.
I remember seeing the old wrestling magazines as a kid and the leopard print one piece swimsuit being burned into my memory.
She wore other things, but I remember that vividly for some reason.

In 2004 Ann was inducted into the Cauliflower Alley Club as an Honoree and she was the Pro Wrestling Illustrated Girl Wrestler of the Year in 1975.
During her career she held the NWA United States Women's Championship, the USA Women's Wrestling Championship, the Southern States Ladies Championship and the Mississippi State Ladies Championship.

The Fabulous Moolah in Action

Long before she ever hit the WWF or WWE The Fabulous Moolah as a big name in women's wrestling.
Love her or hate her, she carved a niche for herself in what was a male dominated sport.

The Magnificent Mimi vs Bambi - Ladies Wrestling

Last time I mentioned when Heels were Heels.
A good example of that was the Magnificent Mimi.
Mimi was absolutely gorgeous.
And she could be mean as a snake.
I pretty much guarantee she could reduce any of today’s "Divas" to tears in a few minutes.
A little biting, stomping, eye gouging and hair pulling would have the perfectly coiffed "Total Divas" begging for mercy.

Mimi vs Bambi-fingerlock-test of strength

Here she is up against her exact opposite, Bambi.
Bambi was a Face, but she could brawl if she had to.
She preferred to punish her opponents with wrestling hold though.
You don’t get to see ladies like this in the ring any more.
