Emily Dole, who worked as Mountain Fiji on the original GLOW television series, died at age 60 on Tuesday. The cause of death has not been revealed. She had been living in an assisted living center.
Powell’s POV: Dole was the heart and soul of the excellent GLOW: The Story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling documentary that can be viewed on Netflix. I was not a big fan of GLOW, but the documentary made me appreciate just how much the series meant to Dole and many of the women involved. My condolences to her family, friends, and fans.
