NUDE AND NASTY
DVD region 1. DVE.
a DVD pops through the letterbox that leaves you bemused as to
who it's actually aimed at. Like this one, for instance.
wrestling fans amongst you might be familiar with Women's Extreme
Wrestling, which appeared late at night on the now-defunct Fight
Network (just after the insane Japanese catfighting show, which
I'd frankly much rather be reviewing). The show is pretty much
standard US professional wrestling, only with women, and there
is nothing rude, lewd or nude about it. The ladies get into the
ring, beat the hell out of each other and then leave - clothing
intact. On the rare occasion that something pops out unexpectedly,
the footage is censored.
would seem, then, that WEW is trying to be a 'real' wrestling
franchise, unlike older efforts like G.L.O.W. or any other the
mud / jello / food wrestling videos that were big in the 1980's.
In a male-dominated industry, these women seem determined to make
it on their own merits, rather than as eye candy for the fans.
this DVD of a Pay Per View show is decidedly odd.
takes the regular style of the WEW and mixes in a few soft striptease
sequences by sexy Playboy playmates, which are entirely unrelated
to any of the ring action. None of the wrestlers strip; none of
the strippers wrestle.
I just can't work out who this is for. Erotica fans and wrestling
enthusiasts alike will surely feel short-changed. But I suppose
if you like grappling and stripping, it might be just the thing.
or, more likely, not.
Wrestling fans will be amused to see familiar faces SoCal Val
and ODB in action here (in the case of the latter, it's possibly
a relief that she stays clothed!), suggesting that this is not
the most recent of productions.
