Nylons and Midriffs: Being Seen (Year in Review, 2020)

We’re taking off the Nylons today, friends. I have much to say about the journey we’ve mapped for women’s wrestling in the past three years that Nylons and Midriffs has existed, but I want to take one last review at this unforgettable year first. So much happened in America in the midst of great trauma, … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Being Seen (Year in Review, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: Wicked Ways (October 14, 2020)

We’re in the heart of spooky season pals, and there are some very scary things happening in the WWE world right now. We’ll talk about them at the end of this entry, but before that we’ll keep our discussion centered on in-ring action.

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)

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)

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: Near? Far? Wherever You Are… (March 25, 2020)

In the words of the great feminist writer Roxane Gay, every day is a month in this new world of social distancing. As a fan of wrestling, I am glad to still have this form of entertainment during this tumultuous time. However, it comes with a twinge of concern for the people I see on … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: Near? Far? Wherever You Are… (March 25, 2020)

Nylons and Midriffs: The Syndrome (March 11, 2020)

If you’re a long time wrestling fan like me, you know how this time of year feels when it comes around. While it infamously has no off-season, wrestling — when viewed as a cyclical sport — is now entering playoff season. We’re rounding third base into home, and the payoff for months of rivalry and … Read more Nylons and Midriffs: The Syndrome (March 11, 2020)
