Got a Girl Crush On: GLOW: The Story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling

A documentary from Brett Whitcomb that chronicles the rise and fall, the friendships and heartbreak, the rapping and slamming of the first ever all-female wrestling TV show. Somehow I missed this train growing up, but man oh man am I glad I stumbled upon it now. With characters like Matilda the Hun, Mt. Fuji and The Heavy Metal Sisters, the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling turned out to be an unlikely set of role models for girls across the world through an awesome display of confidence, humor and physical strength. The documentary highlights interviews with some of these ladies as they recount the memories and sisterhood they experienced before the show was abruptly cancelled. It’s also got a great soundtrack by ESG.

The documentary is available on Netflix!
