Default Women's Wrestling

Women's wrestling has become a big focus in WWE over the past few years, with a lot of first-ever women's gimmick matches taking place. Casual fans seem to be loving the women's division. Me personally I enjoy watching big fight type of matches like a Brock Lesnar match or a good technical wrestling match. I rarely ever see this in a diva's match, regardless of all the hype for that division.

I'm wondering what fans enjoy about women's wrestling currently? I honestly don't see what all the hype is about. I mainly watch women's wrestling now for the same reason I did before, for the sex appeal, call me old fashioned. So what do you guys actually enjoy about women's wrestling? Other than hot divas fighting, I can't say I enjoy much else. Ronda Rousey joining WWE is cool I guess.

I enjoy women's wrestling when they have good matches and strong stories. Just like I enjoy men's wrestling when they have good matches and strong stories. I literally couldn't give less of a fuck about what gender the wrestlers competing are.

Honestly I do see the point the OP tried to make. Women's wrestling in WWE over the last year or so hasn't been too interesting.

On Raw, Sasha and Bayley have been horribly underused while Alexa has practically dominated the division. On Smackdown, not much of anything has really happened. I honestly can't remember hardly anything about their division over the last year.

Now with that said, the women's wrestlers in WWE are certainly capable of having good wrestling matches and just as capable as the men. However just like the males, they need the writing and booking to back them up. And unfortunately that hasn't happened.

Do fans really watch wrestling for the sex appeal anymore? Like these guys work out, and are "camera ready", so it's sort of goes without saying that they have to be attractive on television. But to watch just because they make you horny is sort of silly in the age of internet porn.

Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte is a feud you should really look into, OP. They had some stellar work. And the Women's Royal Rumble was fun and not at all the shitfest a fan from the Attitude Era would expect. Sure, I would be the first to admit a good share of women's matches on TV aren't exactly barn-burners, but then again most of the men's matches I've seen lately weren't great either. You take it as you take wrestling shows in general - some of it will be meh, and some will be fantastic.

There is a difference between porn and just enjoying watching attractive women wrestle. That's why beauty competitions exist, etc.. I enjoy watching beautiful women wrestle but am not really invested in their in ring work or feuds, they don't connect with me.

That feud was alright but neither that feud or Royal Rumble rank up against the best feuds or Royal Rumble. Which is my point, sure the women's division has improved slightly but it's not as a great as WWE or some fans are hyping it up to be.

If you're able to put on entertaining matches and are someone that's able to make me care enough to invest my time in keeping up with what program you're doing, then I don't care if you're male or female. I just enjoy watching good wrestling. I have no interest in 2 minute filler matches, bikini contests, lingerie matches, pillow fight matches, dance offs or any of that other nonsense that made women's wrestling in WWE an industry wide joke.
Come on now, I wasn't a fan of women's wrestling in any era of WWE lol but there were a lot of beautiful divas in WWE history.

I can't get behind woman's matches the same way I do with some of the men's matches. Matches like Brock Lesnar v. Kurt Angle, The Rock v. Steve Austin, were huge. Many fans were anticipating a highly competitive/ hard hitting match with those matches. I don't feel the same type of anticipation for a match like Sasha Banks v. Charlotte. Women's wrestling lack the aggression, intensity & overall polish some of the best men's wrestling matches have. Come on now, how can you get hyped for match featuring a 5ft 90lbs RAW woman's champion for any other reason but to stare at her ass.

Judging by what you're saying, they're too small and lack testosterone for your taste. That's definitely one position to take, though you're massively underselling why people have taken to women's wrestling lately. I get that you're more the macho type, and need that hard-hitting style. Maybe you're expecting too much from something everybody else is enjoying. I don't know. But it's easy to see why people are enjoying this more than they have in the past 20 years.

Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte was PWI's feud of the year.

The Women's Rumble was solid for being the first time they've done it. I've heard nothing but praise for how well executed it was.

This seems more like what would it take to impress you more than just some fans hyping something up. If women's wrestling isn't your bag, then I totally understand. Big brawlers bore me to tears. But if this is a question as to why people have taken to it lately, it's fairly obvious.

Fair points, I guess the women's matches is not aggressive & hard hitting enough to enjoy as much as a lot of the men's matches. I'm sure some fans share my opinion.

I guess some fans are able to invest the women's matches/feuds as much the same way they do with the men's matches/feuds. I admit that the women's division has improved since the Attitude Era.

Does sex appeal still have some impact? Sure, I imagine so. That would explain the hair extensions, make up and the skimpy outfits but I don't believe it has remotely the sort of impact it did once up on a time. As has been pointed out, with the easy access and virtually unlimited amount of porn online, the thrill of seeing hot women scantily clad on TV no longer remotely has the appeal it did 20 to 25 years ago. If you were a teenager during the 90s as I was, the pinnacle of cool was managing to get your hands on a copy of Playboy or Hustler.

You can jack your hammer to Hustler all you want, but you have no leg to stand on when saying what cool is. And invest your time? Anyone who follows your posts knows your time is spent watching wrestling and little else. That’s fine if you love it that much. But don’t act like you’d do anything else if the “program” wasn’t up to your standards. The women aren’t as entertaining to some as they are to others. You saying that not liking them means you’re not a fan is ridiculous. Go ahead and like whatever you want, but get off your wrestlezone forum high horse when trying to tell people what they like. Get over yourself.

When I think of women's wrestling in the old days, "masturbatory fodder" is one of the last phrases that comes to mind. Sure, some of the ladies were attractive but most were just average looking people. It wasn't until the nineties that it seemed most were really good looking, at least in my eyes. On the whole, I believe the women wrestling now are far more attractive than in "the old days".
