An illustrated history of women’s wrestling, from its early days as a carnival attraction to the pay-per-view bonanzas of today. Hilarious stock footage highlights a supremely entertaining look at a subculture where men are the weaker sex, low blows are encouraged, and The Fabulous Moolah reigns supreme.
