GLOW The Story of The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Few people will remember the crazy antics of GLOW – the Glamorous Ladies Of Wrestling. Even as a wrestling fan of the late 80’s I only have a passing memory.  But this 2012 documentary, released on Netflix on the eve of it’s own dramatised GLOW series, gives you an affectionate look back at the rapping, highly stylised characters behind what was a landmark in wrestling television.  One for fans and non fans alike.

Best Bit: The reunion
