Could the Real Housewives of Professional Wrestling soon become a real thing? According to Ric Flair the answer is yes and it may be coming to our TVs or streaming services sooner rather than later.
On his most recent episode of the “To Be The Man” podcast, Flair revealed that a new wrestling-centric reality show, Housewives of Wrestling, was in the works and being shopped around to major companies including FOX and Netflix. According to Flair, the show features his own significant other, Wendy Barlow, alongside Randy Orton‘s wife Kim, Kurt Angle‘s wife Giovanna, and Jake Hager‘s wife Catalina. Interestingly enough, at present, only one of the housewives included is actually married to an active wrestler, that being Catalina Hager. While Randy Orton is expected to return to WWE in the future, both Angle and Flair are all but retired. However, as Basketball Wives and Football Wives have shown, the active status of a player, or in this case wrestler, may not necessarily matter for the concept of the show.
While Flair did not go into much further detail, it is likely the Housewives of Wrestling show would follow “The Real Housewives” format that has been such a hit over the years. The Real Housewives franchise began in 2006 with The Real Housewives of Orange County. The franchise has seen 11 different installments and has produced 27 spin-off series. This in addition to the copycat series that have imitated the format such as Basketball Wives, Football Wives, and Kevin Hart’s Real Househusbands of Hollywood. Of course, WWE’s own Total Divas, could also be considered a spiritual successor to The Real Housewives franchise.
