Project Description

GLOW IRL (in real life), the first women’s-only wrestling event to be held in Melbourne for many years, reflects a growing interest in the spectacle, both locally and internationally. The event’s title alludes to the Netflix series, itself a fictionalised remake of GLOW – Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, which aired in the US from 1986 to 1990. The series was a massive hit, screening to an audience of twenty-six million at its peak.
