Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. The idea of an all-girl wrestling promotion was first launched by David McLean and his Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. GLOW was an odd mixture of tits & ass, cartoon and comedy based around a wrestling theme. Fans anticipating pro wrestling were soon disappointed, as the girls didn't know the first thing about grappling. It was difficult to say what audience the show was trying to reach, but after a year and a half it didn't matter because the promotion ran out of money and disappeared.

These women of wrestling had other promotions that they could move to such as The Ladies Professional Wrestling Association (LPWA) which first appeared in the '90s soon after the demise of GLOW. Started by Tor Berg and remnants of the defunct AWA, it was the first all-girl promotion in 35 years to showcase professional women wrestlers.
