So WWE's recent WrestleMania 2017 just happened, being memorable really only for John Cena's proposal, Undertaker's retirement, and Brock Lesnar fighting Goldberg (a former WCW champion). But there was a time (like when the WCW existed) that WWE wasn't the only wrestling name in town. In fact, back in the '80s there was an all-women's wrestling league called G.L.O.W (which stood for Glorious Ladies of Wrestling).

There's even going to be a show about the behind-the-scenes of G.L.O.W. premiering on Netflix, which will star Alison Brie (COMMUNITY). Now we have gotten some images to give us a taste of how it's going to turn out:

Well, it definitely seems to evoke the time period (especially Brie's hair). And I'm intrigued by the story, so I'll definitely be checking this one out. And who could say no to Alison Brie in leotards? I mean, I guess there are people who could. But still. I'm down.

Meanwhile, G.L.O.W. will premiere on Netflix June 23rd, 2017.

Extra Tidbit: Is that...Marc Maron? I-I think it is! Cool.

no one remembers the glow federation for a reason and I'm sorry they didn't pioneer womens wrestling the great mullah and fabulous may young paved the way for all women in wrestling and then the likes of lita,trish stratus,ivory,jacquline and Victoria showed the world again that women can have just as good matches as the men and dare I say better at times.i don't really care that Netflix is doing a series based on glow but the fact they they are presenting it as these women basically made it

How do you know what kind of stories the directors/Producers are trying to tell or how they are presenting that league? Looks for me more like a kind of dramedy in a retro 80´s Setting than a documentation. And for all those Trish Stratuses and Litas there have been countless of Bimbos in Lingerie pillow fights that lacked any form of talent or drive those GLOW ladies possessed.
