We are nearing the end of the list of the ‘Top 10 Mixed Wrestling Women Jobbers” (according to me).
At #2 on the list is the girl on the list with the longest career and arguably the most famous, Hollywood.
Hollywood first came onto the scene in 1986 as part of the wrestling federation G.L.O.W. (Georgous Ladies of Wrestling). An all women’s federation that launched a highly successful TV series.
Like most GLOW girls, Hollywood (real name Jeanne Basone) answered a casting call for GLOW having had no wrestling experience. Reportedly, the add asking dancers, and the applicants were told after they showed up the job was to train them as wrestlers instead. It changed Hollywood’s life forever.
Jeanne took on the name Hollywood and wrestled for Glow for 4 years, most notably as part of the tag team Hollywood and Vine. She stayed with Glow after the original president David McClain left 2 years into the shows run, with all the roster except for Hollywood and two others jumping ship with him.
After GLOW was cancelled in 1992 Hollywood became one of the few to continue her wrestling career, wrestling for years in the indy circuit. She also appeared in many TV series and movies as an actress and stuntwoman.
Eventually, Hollywood started wrestling in custom vidoes, becoming one of the more popular girls on the scene and wrestling for many companies including Double Trouble, Hit The Mat and Steel Kittens. She eventually went on to produce her own videos starting “Hollywould Wrestling Productions.” which she has done for over a decade.
Hollywould produced many wrestling matches, as well as superheroine peril matches for Hollywould Wrestling Productions, most of which she herself starred in.
But what got her noted on this list is the fact that even in her early days, when mixed wrestling was almost exclusively matches where the guy got squashed, Hollywood would frequently shoot matches where the guy would often give her plenty of fight, sometimes even winning. Her company was in fact one of the first places I ever saw a man come out on top in a match. So it’s possible Women Defeated wouldn’t even be here if not for her.
And what’s better is that Hollywood is not only sexy (in fact, I think she looks even better now then she did back in ’86 when she started wrestling) and a skilled wrestler, but she looks amazing when losing. Both selling a beating and her infamous moaning and whining as her opponents take it to her.
For these reasons Hollywood, a girl who has helped shaped this genre of wrestling over the years, comes in at #2 on the list of Top 10 Mixed Wrestling Women Jobbers.
