The Women of Wrestling headed to Los Angeles Comic Con this weekend to promote their new show, "WOW - Women of Wrestling on AXS TV set to premiere January 18, 2019.  Some wrestlers from WOW  participated in a panel and matches as part of the weekend’s Los Angeles Comic Con highlights.

The wrestling matches were held on Saturday and Sunday with Faith the Lioness facing The Beast and Fire (Kiera Hogan) taking on Jessicka Havok. David McClane, founder of GLOW and WOW served as the panel's host. 

 “The WOW Superheroes did an incredibly popular meet ’n’ greet at L.A. Comic Con in 2017.  Seeing the tremendous growth of their pop-culture impact, we knew we had to present the WOW Superheroes live in action this year,” L.A. Comic Con CEO Chris DeMoulin said. “We’re so excited, and we know our fans will love this groundbreaking presentation.”

The WOW Superheroes, who debut on AXS TV on Friday, Jan. 18, 2019, will first mix with fans on Friday, and those one-on-one encounters will continue through the weekend. These meetings will allow fans to not only get an autograph from some of their favorite Superheroes, but also step into the WOW ring and have their photo taken with them. Scheduled to appear over the three-day event are The Dagger, The Fabulous Lana Star, Keta Rush, Stephy Slays, Samantha Smart, Princess Aussie and Razor, the Vanguard of Violence.

“I’ve loved comic books since I was a little girl, and still read them today,” WOW Owner Jeanie Buss said. “That’s why I’m so thrilled to team with L.A. Comic Con to provide their loyal fans a live experience they may have never witnessed. Can you imagine, Supergirl, Batgirl, Black Widow, Captain Marvel, or She-Hulk stepping through the ropes to battle? No, but our WOW Superheroes will and it’s going to be exciting.” 

Women’s wrestling is back, with a vengeance. The hit Netflix series “GLOW” is set for its third season, WOW is partnered with reality TV master Mark Burnett, MGM ’s President of Television Group & Digital, to develop new content for WOW, and WOW-Women Of Wrestling comes to TV on January 18 as part of AXS TV’s Friday Night Fight lineup of programming.
