wXw was formed in Essen, Germany at the turn of the millennium in 2000. It has since proven to be one of the top promotions not just in Germany but for Europe as well. Many known stars such as Chris Hero, Claudio Castagnolli, Shingo Takagi, and Zack Sabre Jr, have passed through the company. They have collectively helped build its reputation along the way. Kelly joining on as a women’s trainer indicates that the promotion wants to continue diversifying its talent roster. It is also likely to move into new markets as well. One can say with confidence that women’s professional wrestling is bigger today than it has been in the past. With more and more regional powerhouses outside of North America pushing for its development, women’s wrestling continues to thrive.
