In this corner, the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling! Step back into the ‘80s and cheer on the beautiful, glittered and powerful ladies whose wrestling personas and over-the-top comedy sketches captivated television audiences. An open call for auditions brought together an unlikely group of young women, some with no wrestling experience. After grueling training with wrestling legend Mando Guerrero they became overnight sensations, rising to global stardom. Pushing through their personal and physical insecurities, these women found strength and power in the art of wrestling, comedy and the unbreakable bonds they developed for one another. GLOW is a nostalgic and at times tearful look back on these women’s lives, their joys, regrets, injuries and disappointment over the unexpected cancellation of the show in 1990. For many, their brief time in GLOW would influence their lives for years to follow. Heather Haynes
