G.L.O.W in Greensboro
The Glorious Ladies Of Wrestling did make appearance in the Greensboro Coliseum and it was a hoot. Only there was one problem. Every GLOW wrestler except one was a fake.
This was a major disappointment because; well the girls on the national telecast show were very, very hot young girls. I have a pulse right?
For the uninformed, GLOW was like taking a wrestling show and mixing in Hee Haw. The show did have a sense of humor about it in that it didn’t take it self to serious. That is why it worked. That and the hot young girls dressed in sexy wrestling gear. Do any of you remember the old Apter Wrestling magazines with the oddly placed “apartment wrestling” features? That was a S&M flesh fest that kind of was a turn on if you had never seen a Playboy.
The feature would have two young girls wrestle sometimes in their underwear and a photographer would take sexy angled pictures of the struggle. Believe it or not, there was even a referee counting the falls if that ever happen. Aaahh, the fifties fetish fan must had a field day with this stuff. I know I have to admit I liked it too. But where are the photos and article about Ernie Ladd verses Rufus R. Jones feud?
A little later they had the main event with Mercedes in a tag team match verses who knows and who really cares. They did a spot where one of the girls put a banana split move on Mercedes and she was turned perfectly towards yours truly. You know what? She was not wearing any underwear under her tights and nothing was left to your imagination. Just a note to real wrestling fans, most female wrestlers wear type thick stockings under their trunks. But if the girl is really young and hot, they well; they just wear as little as possible. And if you really think about it, wasn’t that what GLOW was selling away?
I have seen Starry Night by Van Gogh and a few Vermeer, Rembrandt paintings in my life but this was a sight worthy of any museum in the world. And about a hundred people took pictures of this for later proof and enjoyment.
Our champion Mercedes did later leave GLOW when it crashed and burned and had a solid wrestling career in the WWE.
Funny, I loved the show but the wrestling sucked. What the hell is wrong with me?
