The promotion is a passion its owner, Lakers owner Jeanie Buss, who compares the performers to comic book heroes like Wonder Woman and Super Girl.
“The women of WOW are some of the strongest people I’ve ever met in my life, and you can feel that strength as you watch them do things ordinary human beings cannot do. They’re incredibly extraordinary. They are Superheroes,” said Buss.
