With the Los Angeles Lakers winning the NBA Championship on Sunday, Jeanie Buss became the first female NBA team owner to earn the Larry O’ Brien trophy as well. She took controlling ownership of the team in 2017.
Buss also has a place in pro wrestling history on the short list of women to own a wrestling company. She currently owns WOW- Women of Wrestling, the all-women’s promotion founded by David McLane in 2000.
Pro Sports Extra broke the news back in June that WOW was cancelled by AXS TV. We were told the company will continue on a new broadcast platform to be announced. They had planned to have more TV tapings this fall but the virus pandemic put things in limbo.
