@brodehouse: Yeah, for sure. All this stuff was around when WWE had Trish, Lita, Victoria, Molly Holly, etc. in the women's division, and while they used their sexuality to appeal to people (or disdain for it to get heat, in the case of Molly), they also had fun matches and feuds and connected with the crowd on a character and wrestling level, as well. There's a history of WWE fans enjoying women's wrestling with a good enough roster and actual effort put into it.
I'm through Survivor Series '94 right now. Owen Hart manipulating his mom to throw in the towel for Bret Hart during his I Quit match against Bob Backlund is beautiful. Owen and Mr. Backlund are both amazing. It's a shame the Mr. Backlund character doesn't do all that much after getting fed to Diesel a few days later.
