Mildred Burke


Back in the way back, wrestling was no joke. These women fought for real. Broke their bones. Ruptured their organs. Busted their teeth out. One woman had an eyeball popped out. One gal died. Of course, there was a guy getting more than 50% of what they made.

Mildred Burke and a wrestler I do not know -
if you do, please tell me.
1950s

Ever see the documentary Lipstick and Dynamite?

No, I have not. Guess maybe I should?

It's a good one, all about the women wrestlers of that era.

I will have to check that one out, I am assuming you found it on Netflix? Bitches were awesome. Some things never change. Bitches are still awesome and still make less than men.

Yep. Might even be on instant watch.
