Sunday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA during the WWE No Mercy pay per-view we saw a televised passing of the torch between 16 time WWE Champion John Cena and the new face of the company, Roman Reigns. However, what took place backstage was 30 years in the making.
Several of the original Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW) were in attendance and to their surprise, WWE brass had orchestrated a meeting between them and the cast of the Netflix series GLOW, loosely based on their real life experiences.
Cast members including Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, Sunita Mani, Britney Young, Gayle Rankin, Jackie Tohn and others, lit up in meeting the originals to at which point, Alison Brie told several of the girls she was, “starstruck.”
