The seeds of the LPWA were planted with the formation of Women's Championship Wrestling, the brainchild of Joseph Infante and former AWA Las Vegas area promoter Tor Berg. Women's Championship Wrestling taped a TV pilot in 1987, which later saw video release through Video Gems.
Tor Berg, with advisor Wally Karbo and producers Earl Greenburg and Steve Edwards, renamed and relaunched the LPWA on December 18, 1989 before a sold out Riverside Hotel in Laughlin, Nevada. The LPWA produced two programs, the one-hour Super Ladies of Wrestling and the half-hour Ladies Championship Wrestling, these programs aired weekly on Sportschannel America, MSG Network, Prime, Home Team Sports, New England Sports Network, Sunshine Network and in first-run syndication and in overseas markets.
The LPWA taped events in:
- Riverside Hotel and Casino, Laughlin, Nevada
- Chicago Amphitheater, Chicago, Illinois
- Jackson Coliseum, Jackson, Tennessee
- Mayo Civic Center, Rochester, Minnesota
The LPWA closed its doors in 1992 after they ran the "Super Ladies" pay per view to moderate success. An attempt to revive the LPWA as WNWA, a National Wrestling Alliance territory, was made in 1997, unfortunately the project was abandoned in 1999 when the company failed to secure a television contract.
