Wrestlicious is an American women's professional wrestling promotion based in Tampa, Florida. The company was founded by Jonathan Vargas, who won a Powerball jackpot of $35.3 million in 2008.[2] It is known for its sketch comedy and has been often compared to Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling.


Former Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling host and producer Johnny Cafarella and Jimmy Hart partnered with Jonathan Vargas. In March 2009, a trailer was released promoting Wrestlicious. Originally rumored as airing on Fox Network in fall 2009, the Wrestlicious Takedown series eventually aired in syndication beginning in March 2010. Throughout 2010, Wrestlicious signed several new wrestlers (to replace many of the women that had worked for them during the original 2008 tapings and were now unavailable), and then taped new matches beginning in May 2010 to air on Takedown.

It was announced on March 27, 2010 that Wrestlicious TakeDown will begin airing on many television stations throughout the United States starting around April 1 and May 1, 2010.[8]

Vargas appeared on the show as "JV Rich", the laid back and affable Rapper-Owner of Wrestlicious. Regular features will include "JV's CRIB", a look at the goings-on inside JV's mansion frequented by the Wrestlicious girls.

As of summer 2017, Wrestilicious has yet to release a second season, secure a television deal, or promote new shows.
