Anyone who remembers GLOW(Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) from the 80's might want to check out PPV today. (It is airing the rest of the month though, today its just playing every hour & an half)

There is a monthy 'Classic Wrestling' series on PPV and this month is a GLOW collection.

Ivory got her start there, and needless to say anyone who remembers it has got to love Farmers Daughter.

Does besides myself and my friend John, wish WOW (Womens of Wrestling) was still around?

I think you have that backwards. Anyone who remembers GLOW shouldn't have any desire at all to check it out. Those who never saw it, however, should do so just so they can see how truly good we have it today.

Oh please. We wouldn't have wrestlers like Trish or Lita today without GLOW. The women of GLOW pioneered the industry and showed women are not just tits & ass, they are athletes as well. Look at Ivory. She was former wrestler in GLOW.

It's good to see where women's wrestling came from in the 80's

You must have been watching a different GLOW than I used to watch. The one I used to watch was a complete joke. They didn't even TRY to make it look real. Lita vs Gail Kim would look like Bret Hart vs Shawn Michaels compared to any GLOW match I ever saw.

WOW (Women of Wrestling) was always fun just because of how very cheesy it was. I still have Patti Pep's theme song stuck in my head (P-A-T-T-I P-A-T-T-I Patti Pep! *clap clap* Patti Pep! *clap clap*).

I *am* going to die alone, yes.

First of all, I already saw it. It was pretty good, considering that I have seen GLOW when I was about 8 years old, and watching ANYTHING wrestling at the time. I don't know about pioneers and all that. Ivory was a diamond in the rough, that's for sure.

But if you want TRUE 80s women's wrestling pioneers, read this: Click Here (The W)

I think GLOW ties with Green Bay as the cheesiest place in the universe--ZING! E! A! G! L!- Never mind, I missed the game, anyway. Besides, anyone who really watched GLOW knows that HOLLYWOOD was money. And though I kinda miss the Lana Star show--::blush:: We're fine without WOW.

After a quarter of a century on this planet, there's three things I know for sure...
1)Ain't nothing like a Dirty Pair marathon on New Year's Eve.
2)I'd make a fine Mrs. HHH II.
3) I'd make an acceptable Mrs. Orton.

The truth is that there was hardly any good wrestling in GLOW. It was supposed to be more entertainment than legitimate sport. David McLane was just following in Vince's footsteps.

What I think GLOW did right was that it showed that a all women's entertainment company could succeed in a male-dominated world. GLOW lasted four seasons and it was all about "girl power." So I am glad that GLOW was around, even though the wrestling was atrocious.

As for the PPV, they should have picked better matches. Even though most of the GLOW matches were bad, there were quite a few good Tina Ferrari matches. I remember a great submission match with her and Attache. I remember decent matches with Ninotchka. Even some of the later tag team matches were well done. I just wish that the producers would have done a better job at analyzing what and who made GLOW popular (three words- Hollywood, Hollywood, Hollywood).

Speaking of women's wrestling, I read on Jungle GrRl's website that WOW is now affiliated with some company and might have another season in 2004. As bad as WOW was sometimes, it was still fun to watch. I hope that WOW can come back in some capacity in 04.



Damn you WWE for making me change my sig. I'm sure you have good enough reasons to get rid of Shannon, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. Let me thus be the first to say: BRING BACK DAFFNEY!

I didn't mind the show at all; it certainly was more family friendly than the WWF's fare at the time.

RD Reynolds's wife (RD, being of Wrestlecrap fame, duh!) loved the show; so she'd be quite happy to hear about this.

I'm at a point where I'd watch any wrestling that isn't WWE...on network TV. Bring on the competition!

No, but I often wonder what became of referee Josh "You Say Bump I Say How High" Milton. He was better than 80% of the roster!

No, what I meant is that he would not be able to be demanding of higher wages or better spots until he has proven to the fans that he is a team-player again and is willing to rebuild his WWE career from a lower level than when he left.
