Phony Wrestling And Funny Comedy
12 April 2001 | by (Collinsport, Maine) – See all my reviews

If you watched G.L.O.W. for any reason, you probably turned in regularly for one of three things: to see woman wrestling and killing each other, to see the female wrestlers do some of the funniest comedy sketches or there was nothing else on. The wrestling was obviously choreographed to keep them from really killing each other, after all, many of them were actually actresses or porn stars trying to get legitimate work. None of them had any real wrestling experience except for maybe a week to a months worth of orientation to avoid bruises and broken bones. Some of the scenes in the ring were obviously fake. The Princess Of Darkness could "hypnotize" her opponents by flicking on and off a flashlight built inside a bone. Dementia (actress Nancy Daley) was often brought out in a cage wearing a Lizzie Borden dress and hockey mask. Tammy Jones once won a fight in the last minute after being consistently pummeled by Matilda The Hun (actress Dee Booher, now Queen Kong), and two guys once alledgedly "snuck" through security, into the locker rooms, passed themselves off as lady wrestlers and tried to rape Hollywood and Vine in the ring. The comedy though was a good part of the appeal as Mountain Fiji often dreamed of being Mae West, Russian Colonel Ninotchka (actually American actress Lori Weathers) was often sending spy reports to Mother Russia and Spanish Red played a waitress in several diner sketches. The videos and the short-lived magazine series are collectors items now that this female federation has dissolved, but many of them have become models and actresses in shows like Married With Children.
