Since I heard of its inception, I have been super excited about the series on G.L.O.W. aka the 80’s/90’s Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling, as I loved the ridiculousness of it all as a kid, and it inspired me greatly to wrestle myself. In 1986 when this debuted I was already well into wrestling fandom, and had always been sad there weren’t more women to look up to. What GLOW lacked in wrestling ability, it made up in character. The ladies of GLOW were easier to either love or hate, than most of the guys in other televised pro wrestling. Watching women like Big Bad Mama, Beastie, Hollywood, The Metal Sisters, Mountain Fiji, and all the other “characters” that were presented throughout the seasons.
This series focus’s on the making of GLOW and creates some fake (and maybe presents a touch of real) backstories of the women who became the in ring talent. So far I have watched the first episode and am totally enthralled. Just starting episode 2 now. When I get through the whole series I will write a full review. All I can say now, is this is totally worth watching.
Since we can’t show you more than a preview of the show, what we can show you is a look back at the pilot episode of the Original GLOW experience.
