Lesbian Wrestling Storylines That Played On Straight Male Fantasies

As we know, some of the most beloved storylines and angles in wrestling come from one of the most exciting, yet destructive times for women in wrestling. The Attitude and Ruthless Aggression Eras played on the pop cultural patterns of the time, (circa the 90s America Pie and Cruel Intentions decade) when straight males believed that even straight women had the desire to at least once hook up with their fellow female pals and to turn on their boyfriends in the process. These women being attracted to each other had nothing to do with their own expression of sexuality, but it was always done to appease the man in their lives. Of course, the wrestling world wanted to cash in on this, and one of the first accounts of this was in ECW.

As we look at many wrestlers and personalities in the wrestling industry, that are a part of the LGBTQ community, fans should continue to demand proper representation and make it clear that these angles are to the detriment of the progress that they have made, and it can’t continue.
