Mountain Fiji gives a competitor a life in Glow.
The 2012 documentary film Glow: The Story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling
chronicles the rise and fall of the first ever all-female wrestling show on television, which premiered in 1986.
Like its competitor/frequent imitator the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), Glow was a prime-time wrestling series, complete with elaborate characters, costumes, skits, personalized raps and, of course, wrestling. By 1989, the Glow girls were an international phenomenon, attracting over seven million viewers worldwide, touring the nation and making some serious money for the show’s producers. But one year later, Glow was gone.Glow: The Story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling
examines the phenomenon through the stories of those who lived it (including such grapplers as Matilda the Hun and Mountain Fiji). For some, the show was a brief foray into acting and a short-lived adventure.
