In yet another piece of evidence that American media has no original ideas left, PWInsider has some news up about possible resurgence of G.L.O.W. You remember G.L.O.W. right? It was the promotion that was in heavy syndication in the 80’s and featured random women “wrestling.” They wrestled somewhere and they called it Las Vegas even though there was no actual proof of wrestling being done other than climbing in the ring and flopping around like an epileptic wiener dog.
If this comes to fruition this could set back women’s wrestling all the way back to 1950 again. No women’s wrestling is not setting television ratings records but having a promotion centered around women wrestling poorly on a national showcase could be incredibly damaging to the small inroads made by TNA’s Knockout division. I am begging, yes begging, Jason Deadrich and Dave Prazak to do whatever is necessary to get their legitimate promotions, ChickFight and Shimmer, a national TV deal with a large amount of market saturation. Please, just a legit television deal so that people can be exposed to actual wrestling with actual wrestlers. If that sounds snobby then tough shit. –Jeremy
