Nylons and Midriffs: Discombobulated (September 16, 2020)

The summer is drawing to a close in this marathon of a year. And as far as wrestling is concerned, there’s been plenty of heat in and out of the ring in both WWE and AEW. For the women, there have been some definite highs, but mentally I’m drawn more to the bad stuff, unfortunately. … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Discombobulated (September 16, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: Some Explaining to Do (September 2, 2020)

I come to Nylons this week very confused. I have so many questions instead of answers from both promotions about, more or less, what on Earth they’re doing with their women. No big deal, I just want to know what the heck is going on. (Sarcasm intended.) From unconvincing finishes to tangled webs of storylines … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Some Explaining to Do (September 2, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: Build It Up, Shut It Down (August 19, 2020)

WWE and AEW are gearing up or their summer-end pay-per-views: SummerSlam and All Out, respectively. And the women’s divisions of both promotions are busy to say the least. In the span of two weeks, countless feuds were continued and begun – some poetically, others haphazardly. But, minus a few blemishes, I felt very invested in … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Build It Up, Shut It Down (August 19, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: Clownery (August 5, 2020)

We have so much foolishness to go over this week, pals… That’s okay; not every week can be a banger. There are some weeks that serve as buffer, and with wrestling not having an off-season, there are bound to be lulls every few months or so. Let’s start with a review of the matches and … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Clownery (August 5, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: Ring the Freakin’ Bell! (July 22, 2020)

Oh don’t worry, we’ll get to that finish from Extreme Rules in due time… Returning for another edition of Nylons, we have some good and horrific things to talk about in the wake of The Horror Show at Extreme Rules. But, we also have a few topics to visit outside of that show, and also … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Ring the Freakin’ Bell! (July 22, 2020)

Call for WrestlePosium II Proposals

The President of the PWSA invites submissions for the association’s WrestlePosium II. WrestlePosium I was such a resounding success that we are going to follow the same format for next year! This virtual symposium will happen online on Saturday, April 3rd, 2021, a week after WrestleMania 37. Hopefully WrestleMania and all the festivities in professional wrestling … Read more Call for WrestlePosium II Proposals

Nylons and Midriffs: In Sasha We Trust (July 8, 2020)

Wow wow wow. The past two weeks have produced some of the best women’s wrestling I can remember seeing in the last 12 months. For both WWE and AEW, my critiques are mostly nitpicky details from a critic invested in keeping this momentum going. It can’t be denied that the women have been an integral … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: In Sasha We Trust (July 8, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: Deliver Us From Charlotte (June 24, 2020)

Much of the same mix of hope and anxiety have continued for me since the last edition of Nylons. And what’s worse is that I (spoiler) have many negative feelings toward wrestling at the moment, for the various news that have come out in the last couple of weeks. From WWE allegedly forbidding Performance Center … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Deliver Us From Charlotte (June 24, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: Meritocracy Is A Lie (June 10, 2020)

Disheartened, exhausted, hopeful. These are just a handful of the emotions that I’ve felt in the last three weeks of American life. I, like Black folks everywhere in this nation, had to search deep in my well of stamina to both process the violence hurled at Us and protesters, as well as find resilience to … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Meritocracy Is A Lie (June 10, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: The (Secret) Fear (May 20, 2020)

Sometimes, I think WWE and AEW read Nylons, because no sooner do I critique something about their women’s divisions do they correct themselves on the following episode of TV. As many of you witnessed, women returned to TV on AEW two weeks ago. Hooray! And as such, there were some good things, and there were … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: The (Secret) Fear (May 20, 2020)
