Of all the shows Netflix offers on its service, you would not assume a lightly fictionalized retelling of women's wrestling in the 1980s would be a major hit. But critics and wrestling fans everywhere loved GLOW, the story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling as told by Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, Marc Maron, and a bunch of other wonderful women (plus Brodus Clay and Alex Riley cameos). In Awesome Truth's initial foray away from being a wrestling book club, we discuss the first season of GLOW and how well it shares the stories of pro wrestling.
