Suddenly revealed on the WOW Facebook... the reigning WOW Champion of the World is... Lana Star! (facebook.com)
What, you say? Lana Star is the WOW Champion? When did this happen? Terri Gold was WOW Champion when the promotion ended after WOW Unleashed PPV in 2001.
Au contraire... According to the WOW Wikipedia page (en.wikipedia.org) in 2002, Lana Star beat Terri Gold for the title:
Originally posted by What must be a totally factual, up and up account of WOW historyWOW claimed that following the tapings at Great Western Forum, Several of its performers continued wrestling on various independent shows. In a non televised event in LA, Lana Star beat Terri Gold in a WOW sanctioned match for the title.
Too bad this didn't happen in Rio De Janiero.
Point is, Lana Star is the reigning, undefeated WOW World Champion and has been for 11 YEARS! Longer than CM Punk's measy 400+ days. A pittance. Longer than Hulk Hogan, longer than Bob Backlund, longer than either of Bruno Sammartino's reigns.
well if they say so Like I said in a previous post I know that Jungle Girl ( Erica Porter) stayed active for a while but that was really it. But of course as JR would say " it's fiction dude ". I might have to soften my attitude towards this incarnation of WOW. A few legit wrestlers, including a good friend of mine, have been picked up to flesh out the ranks. We'll just have to see what happens.
WHAT WORKED: -There was some nice mic work setting up the PPV main event. Joe and Jarrett especially. Samoa Joe did a real nice job laying out his relationship and how he stands vis a vis the rest of the competitors.
