I can't help but admire David McLane. He knows how to do one thing, run a women's wrestling entertainment show, and no matter how many versions of it fails, he waits a decade, dusts himself off and goes right back to it.
PWInsider reports WOW is casting (pwinsider.com) women for the new promotion and tour. Filming begins on Monday for a tour starting in Vegas in January. 2+ months to whip a bunch of novices into some sort of wrestlers. I hope we get to see the finished results.

I can only hope that Riot, Wendi Wheels and Becky the daughter of the farmer make it to this "new" venture.

Yeah, I'm going to keep supporting Shimmer, Shine, ArenaChicks, WSU & other wrestling promotions using good wrestlers putting out a quality product. It was one thing for WOW to exist when there really wasn't any other product out there, & to be fair they did have some good wrestling. But now with all the talent from around the world appearing on iPPV & via DVD, I don't see a McLane style product being successful. Wrestlicious tried it using real wrestlers and the campiness doomed it to failure. Casual fans will see it as a nothing more than sideshow & wrestling fans will ignore it for the same reasons. IMO the wrestling world has passed this kind of thing by, at least I hope it has.
Well, he has a brilliant gimmick and has more charisma than the majority of guys in TNA and WWE. He's a straight edge punk from Chicago. It's hip, relevant and edgy. It's the type of gimmick that can appeal to a whole new breed of wrestling fan.
