The following press release has been issued:



WrestleCade Founder Tracy Myers Pacts With Female Wrestling

Pioneer David McLane to Showcase WOW Superheroes,

November 24-26 in Winston-Salem, NC

Los Angeles – August 29, 2017 – WrestleCade Weekend, one of the largest annual independent wrestling weekends anywhere in the world, has added the WOW-Women Of Wrestling (WOW) to its all-star lineup of stars for their Nov. 24-26, 2017 weekend spectacular in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

The appearance will be the first major live event on the East Coast for WOW and its Superheroes . WOW will be represented at the convention by Georgia wrestling legend Selina Majors, better known as Bambi; former WOW World Champions Jungle Grrrl and the Fabulous Lana Star; ring veteran Amber O’Neal; WOW tag team The Dagger and The Temptress (aka The Vengeful Vixens); and WOW rising stars Stephy Slays, Samantha Smart and The Beast.

In addition, WOW founder David McLane, the pioneer of modern women’s wrestling, will make his first appearance at any kind of wrestling convention. McLane conceived “GLOW-Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling,” the television show that pulled women’s wrestling out of the sleazy, mud wrestling stigma and in the process created one of the biggest syndicated TV hits of the 1980s. He is now the business partner of L.A. Lakers’ Owner and President Jeanie Buss, and together they are bringing entertaining, inspiring women’s wrestling to a new generation.

“Women’s wrestling is experiencing a new boom in popularity, so it made sense for WOW to be a part of WrestleCade Weekend”, WrestleCade Entertainment owner and WrestleCade Weekend founder Tracy Myers stated. “I knew this was the perfect time to provide wrestling fans the unique opportunity to meet and see in action the people responsible for jumpstarting interest in women’s wrestling and fueling its momentum.”

There are many signs pointing to the recent popularity of women’s wrestling including the renewal of the hit Netflix series “GLOW” and Buss and McLane’s new partnership with Mark Burnett, MGM ’s President of Television Group & Digital, to develop new content for WOW.

“WrestleCade Weekend attracts fans from around the world and the whole WOW organization is looking forward to giving them a fun and entertaining experience,” David McLane said. “We’re still finalizing plans, but can confirm that our latest breakout star, The Beast, will be wrestling on Friday, Nov 24th, as part of Showcase of Champions, which kicks off the weekend.”

First staged in 2012, WrestleCade quickly established itself as one of the largest independent wrestling events anywhere in the world. It brings wrestling stars together with their fans, with epic matches and fan-friendly meet-and-greets. It has established itself as a Thanksgiving weekend tradition for wrestling fans around the globe.
