From quarantine comes creativity, and we have been enjoying the abundant results of artists’ self-reflection and drive. Our most recent find is the Grown Ass Women show, or #GAWTV, hosted by Mickie James, Lisa Marie Varon and Valerie Wyndham. 

Known for their careers in pro wrestling, this trio of strong, opinionated women have created #GAWTV for anyone that’s looking for an honest take on everything from current events, careers and relationships to fashion, beauty, wine, music and more. 

The first episode of the talk show debuts today (May 20) on YouTube, with weekly episodes to follow every Wednesday at 2 p.m. PST. 

The hosts of #GAWTV are no strangers to entertainment. From wrestling to modeling, acting and singing, these three women have had long and successful careers. 

Mickie James-Aldis is not only an American professional wrestler, but also a singer/songwriter, actress, model and philanthropist. She has won a combined six Women’s Titles in WWE and three TNA Knockout Titles; she is considered one of the greatest women’s wrestlers of all-time. She was inducted into the Native American Music Awards (NAMA) Hall of Fame after releasing her first single “Are You With Me?” in 2010.

Lisa Marie Varon is described as one of the toughest women’s wrestlers of all-time. On WWE under her stage name Victoria, she won two WWE Women’s Titles and competed in WrestleMania. Lisa has also worked for TNA Impact Wrestling, where she won the Knockouts Championship an impressive five times. 

Valerie “SoCalVal” Wyndham is an American presenter currently living in the U.K. She is well known for her work in professional wrestling as a manager, ring announcer and on-air host. She recently starred as a commentator in WOS Wrestling on ITV and is the current on-air host for FITE TV: a combat sports network and Screenstalker: A Film & TV review network. Val has been featured in several magazine publications including “Pro Wrestling Illustrated,” “American Salon,” and “Muscle & Fitness.” You may have seen her on T.V. as a host for UPN, Marvel Comics, DirecTV, Spike TV, Challenge TV and The Speed Network.
