In women’s wresting the glamour girls of wrestling is a phrase that can be used with two different connotations. In a very specific way, it refers to Judy Martin and Leilani Kai, two beautiful American wrestlers who teamed up in the WWF as The Glamour Girls. Managed by Jimmy Hart, these two women made a mark in the 1980s, at one point winning the WWF Woman's Tag Team Title.
In a broader context, however, glamour girls of wrestling are many of the women from the 50s through the 90s who made their mark in classic professional women's wrestlingFrom the gorgeous Ann Casey who earned the name "Panther Girl" with her sexy leopard and animal print suits to Betty Boucher, who could as easily have been a model as a wrestler, these women have their place in pin-ups and in the ring. Mother and daughter teams like Cora and Debbie Combs made their mark as sexy vixens of the ring, as did stunning Lorraine Johnson and her daughter Nickla Roberts from the 60s through the 80s.
Steel Kittens owes a huge debt to Mildred Burke--one of the greatest names in all of women's wrestling. Women's World Champion from 1935 to 1954, Burke was sexy, powerful, and savvy. She managed and trained most of the best women in the next generation of wrestling, including Gail Gardner, Susan Sexton, Laura Del Rio, Casey Carr, and Cheryl Day. Steel Kittens now trains women in Mildred's ring, continuing the tradition of great wrestling and entertainment!
