I talk a lot about how we have lost a lot of the "roughness" in women's pro wrestling.
The prancing Divas of the WWE will never know what it's like to get curb stomped, slammed into and through a table.
Or be bitten, gouged, stomped, kicked and punched in a match anymore.
But in the Indy promotions, the ladies still get a lot rougher than their WWE counterparts.
And here are two of the roughest ladies to ever step into a ring anywhere, Japan's Mayumi Ozaki and the UK's Saraya Knight.
Two ladies that can take as good as the get, dish out the punishment and keep going and going.
Yeah Saraya is WWE Diva Paige's mom, so Paige might be able to hang with the big girls too if given a chance.
But these to ladies here are classic rough and tough heels.
