Business man Graham Stevens was touring Japan in 1985 and went to a local indie show where he saw Japanese women's wrestling for the first time. He was blown away by their skill and talent and knew that their talent needed to be shown to the world. A promotion relying on women was unthinkable, but Stevens dream was become a reality.
