Please take the time to listen to @KarenSensei for the first 20 minutes with an open mind. So incredibly proud of her for using her voice in a important way. Her strength is something that we could learn from.


I very seldom post on the forums, but thank you for making the time to listen.


Thank you, Karen, for everything you shared. The poignance of the current and historic lens of Women in Wrestling and your experiences within it as well. Despite the overwhelming amount of wrong takes and awful people reacting ignorantly and hyperbolically to everything online.

It’s greatly appreciated.
