Powerful Women of Wrestling was an offshoot of GLOW. David McLane had various duties at GLOW and wanted to have basically a women's version of the WWF with wrestling and gimmicks. The moneymen behind GLOW wanted to focus on the cheesier aspects and not the wrestling. McLane got tired of it and decided to form his own promotion called POWW featuring more wrestling and less cheese. The promotion didn't last that long and when you figure that they were a) a very niche offshoot promotion and b) a wrestling focused promotion with awful wrestlers, you can see why.
Please note that when McLane raided the GLOW roster, he had to change almost everyone's names, so if you see someone you know with an odd name, that's why.
One other note is that you will see the WWA name thrown out on here. The WWA was Dick The Brusier's promotion. It was big in the Indianapolis/Chicago region until the 70's and then it started to go downhill like alot of the territories did when the top star got old/overexposed and they just decided to close shop. Dick The Brusier is on commentary here and helped David McLane get in the business, which explains the usage of WWA.

Genie Beret aka Attache is their manager. Andie was Angel was in GLOW and Destiny it seems was a POWW original. Brandie Mae was Amy the Farmer's Daughter and Malibu was The California Doll. It appears that they were also calling Malibu - "The Malibu Doll". That obviously took time to come up with.
