Video: CHIKARA's Podcast-A-Go-Go highlights excellent Joshi action from Reading, PA

Didn't care much for the WWE Divas match at WrestleMania 28 between the team of Beth Phoenix and Eve Torres taking on Kelly Kelly and Extra host Maria Menounos?

You wouldn't be the only one.

WWE treats women's wrestling like a novelty, a sideshow to its male counterpart. They have at least three formidable female wrestlers in Phoenix, Natalya and Kharma and yet, no combination of the trio has ever met inside a WWE ring.

Granted, Kharma got a pregnancy sabbatical while the former two joined forces as Pin Up Strong. Still, it felt as is the Divas Champion and her "sidekick" would eventually butt heads and come to blows.

Instead, Nattie Neidhart farted backstage while Phoenix paraded around claiming there was no one to fit to challenge her.

Luckily, CHIKARA plays from a different rulebook than WWE. In their promotion, there is no difference between male and female wrestlers. Inside a CHIKARA ring, there are just wrestlers.

This point is further proven at A Death Worse Than Fate when "Queen of Wrestling" Sara Del Rey took on Archibald Peck while rookie sensation Saturyne went toe to toe with El Hijo del Ice Cream.

As much as I love that frozen desert rudo, I was cheering for the "Intergalactic Luchadora." Sorry A.J., but I think I have a new number one rasslin' crush.

You will too after the jump.
