To commemorate Tina "Ferrari, WWE's Ivory" Moretti's induction into the Cauliflower Alley Club Hall of Fame, a positive and nostalgic look back at GLOW by local TV news. With quotes from Kharma and Billy Corgan, to boot.
I do miss GLOW.
“@ZackRyder: @CMPunk She played me bro” I got your back.
I remember when my parents and I moved in with this other family when I was about 4 years old. Their son was into wrestling huge and he got me into watching AWA, WWF, and GLOW. I remember seeing the women in GLOW and thinking they were the weirdest girls I'd had seen. I started chasing girls at school shortly after.
Ivory still looks great here, I do miss her on my tv. Also what the shit Billy Corgan runs an indie wrestling show? Why does that not compute to me?
I gotta admit it was weird to get Billy Corgan to talk on this piece. Then when he says wrestling is on the "front edge" of racism, I totally get it. Billy is a born carny.
GLOW ruled. I want to see that documentary they have on GLOW.

Heh.. wrestling may be among the first to deal with misogyny, racism, etc. Maybe not always the 'good' side of the issues, like with the ongoing "WWE storylines vs Be-a-Star" feud. To be fair, I'll mention that Mohammed Hassan was meant to be a positive role model at first. Not sure they gave the idea a full shot. Today, neither Del Rio or Jinder Mahal really play off stereotypical ethnic types for their heel personas.
The Irish still seem to be fair game.
Back to GLOW, I guess I get the "Hee Haw" comparison now that they mention it, but only because the jokes were so corny you couldn't call it "Laugh-In". If we ever get to see "Legends' House", I for one will be comparing it to "Life in the GLOW House".
Always nice to see when someone make it out the other side of the business in good shape, congrats to Tina on the honor.
that whole thing was so bogus. 3 of my friends were on the new GLOW show and I was told the experience was a "nightmare". I feel so bad for all of the women who worked it and got burned. it could have been fun but turned into a giant bummer.
I hope Benoit settles into the masochist Stu Hart role of torturing young wrestlers and churning out the next great generation of workers. Why didn't they have him chop some of those kids on Tough Enough?
