TNA star Rob Van Dam released the following promo endorsing the return of David McLane's Women of Wrestling promotion, which will hold its first TV taping this month:

 

The promotion's new series, WOW Superheroes is currently running on CW Las Vegas affiliate KVCW at 11 AM local time.

The first TV taping is set for Las Vegas on 1/19/13, which was the original home for the old GLOW tapings McLane produced in the 1980s. The tapings will be held at the Eastside Cannery Casino & Hotel  at 7:30 PM. The tapings will feature a number of the characters and personalities featured in the last incarnation of WOW, including Lana Star as well as new talents making their debut.  The promotion has been running videos online of the new talents trying out and being signed by McLane.  Some have gotten very emotional over being signed.

As previously noted, WOW opened a training center to train the new women who have been hired to work as performers for the company. They have been filming everything involved in the training for a planned reality series "WOW Girls" that will be part of the company's launch. 44 Blue Productions are handling that aspect of the production. Selina Majors, from Georgia, has been heading up the training.

The business plan for the company will see a live tour in different markets as well as a TV launch next year. The term "Superheroes" has been attached to a lot of the promotional material for the launch, with the idea of the women being real life heroes via their characters and performances in the ring.

Jeannie Buss, the Executive Vice President of the Los Angeles Lakers, is involved in the new company as an executive. 44 Blue’s Rasha Drachkovitch will be producing as well.
