I don’t know enough about wrestling to know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

G.L.O.W. came on television when I was ten years old, and when I first saw it I think I heard angels blaring trumpets in Heaven. Watching sexy women in tights beating the heck out of each other was incredibly arousing to me at a primordial level, and I taped every episode that I could. G.L.O.W. is one of the reasons why I’m into superheroines so much now, and it motivated me to write the UWWL stories that I still write to this day.

im super excited about it!. The story they will tell… is all of our story’s. For me it went like this.

Best matches were the bar room brawls. Check out Texas vs Ninotchka on youtube, Simply amazing.
GLOW brings back some very ancient memories.

I got excited at first thinking there would be a GLOW with new matches. Would be awesome if it came back. This show started my love for heroine peril.

Hope the actress in this series plays a lovely good girl and get’s squashed a few times. And as far as GLOW coming back ever , maybe if Ursulla Hayden ( Babe the Farmers Daughter ) will finally sell the rights to someone who WILL get GLOW back in the ring we will be in business

Yeah that would be amazing. I always thought the GLOW jobbers were some of the best in the business.

I hope they’ll be wearing hi-cut leotards as the video above, and NOT those CONSERVATIVE low cut shorts like the WWE “Divas” wears. How was it that the male wrestlers there still wear briefs and the Divas don’t wear panty-style sport bikinis? 🙁

Given that the show will be set in the 80s, I expect they will wear 80s wrestling fashions.

Curious about this , will be glad to see GLOW back in some way , shape , & form as Ursulla Hayden Babe the Farmers Daughter & GLOW rights holder ) has not gotten GLOW back in the ring in her tenure other then a 2 or 3 show new GLOW that hardly anyone knows about , I know they had a 2 or 3 show return but have ZERO clue as to the matches & characters , can’t wait more more info & hopefully , teasers

When I first came across this bit of news it was a pleasant surprise, but very much a surprise nonetheless.

For obvious reasons I remember his show fondly from my childhood, but how well known was it in the US when it first aired?
