AJ Lee and Tessa Blanchard announced for Women of Wrestling relaunch

On October 6th 2021, there was a press conference to announce the relaunch of the promotion Women of Wrestling. Former WWE star AJ Lee was at the press conference and will be an executive producer for the brand.

Former Impact Wrestling women’s champion Tessa Blanchard was also shown in the trailer for WOW’s return.

WOW has signed a deal with Viacom to bring new episodes of the series to CBS affiliates later this year. WOW’s Jeanie Buss gave a statement to ETOnline.com…

“Wrestling’s presentation of women has long been very important to me, and we now are presenting the epitome in sports entertainment that will highlight the athleticism of these superstars as we reintroduce WOW. Our partnership with the entire ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group family allows us to continue our mission of providing wrestling fans and WOW Superheroes what they have all deserved: a global platform for a dedicated women’s wrestling league.”

Dan Cohen, President of ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group, also gave a statement…

“We are thrilled to partner with Jeanie Buss and David McLane to create a significant global footprint for WOW and expand our diverse, world-class content portfolio. This series offers audiences unique, compelling and creative entertainment that features female ‘superheroes’ in the ring, behind the cameras and in all aspects of the business. Both in the U.S and abroad, we believe this is an event program that will make some noise in the marketplace.”
