Denise Rutkowski Gallery and Video

Looking back at the nearly forgotten women who have made the industry so great has been a wonderful project! Denise Rutkowski has been no exception! Something else interesting about Denise is she was often known to bounce between two wigs, one blond and one black, either way she is amazing!!

Watch Lori Whoop Some Butt

Lori shows us all what happens when she is challenged by anyone – in business as well as in life. It might just be better to concede at the start, but where’s the fun in that? High above Manhattan in the common room of an upscale apartment, Lori wrestles a tough guy from the Middle East. Not scripted, all real, you will be surprised for sure. Did you know Lori studied wrestling at Gleason’s gym, Brooklyn?

Changing the Size of Sumo

Clare Lutton, 24-years-old, and Caitlin Szanto, 19-years-old, are competitive sumo wrestlers which isn’t too big of a deal until you see them. They are changing the way people think about sumo wrestlers, and they will be the only women from Sydney competing in the national sumo championships on the Gold Coast this month.

”There’s a lack of awareness about how the sport has evolved into the different weight categories for women, which means you don’t have to be huge to compete,” Clare said.

Sumo wrestling has been slow to appeal to women and it is understandable considering it was plagued by the stereotype of obese men wearing nappies and really what woman wants to be associated with that? However, many of the women who are competitive do easily slide in with the all you can eat look. Clare and Caitlin are working around that and are starting to use their speed and skill to counter others brute.

”When I competed in opens I had women literally pick me up and chuck me out of the ring in a matter of seconds,” Caitlin said. ”To beat someone physically bigger than you requires skill because you have to get underneath your competitor and get them off balance.”

Transgender Activist Donna Rose competes in the U.S. Open Wrestling Championships

Donna Rose, while 51-years-old, has only been a women for 10-years. For the first 40-years of her life she was Dave, a successful business and family man, but she was living a lie. In her youth, she was a good wrestler and football player. Some 25-years after her last match she returned to the mat. It was a tough journey. A lot had changed, with her and the wrestling world.

She began training again and entered the U.S. Open Women’s Freestyle Wrestling Championship. It didn’t take long after she showed up for the whispers to turn to internet searches. The committee was forced to hold an impromptu meeting to decide rather she would be allowed to compete. They came back in agreement. Donna would wrestle and make history. The only match she won was the first, but she won a bigger battle with herself.

“When I won that match,” Donna said, “it was a sense of euphoria, relief and accomplishment unlike anything else that I have ever experienced. It made it all worthwhile. And because I did it as Donna, it was the most honest I have ever been on the mat. I didn’t need to be the best. I didn’t need to be #1. My biggest opponent going into this match wasn’t Iris Smith, it wasn’t the people sitting there at the scoring tables. My biggest opponent was my heart, and between my ears, and those are opponents I know I can vanquish.”
