-Kia Stevens, who wrestles as Awesome Kong, spoke with Deadline.com about her role on the GLOW series that airs on Netflix. Check it out at Deadline.com.
-It was announced today that actress Geena Davis will appear on the third season of the GLOW series as a character named Sandy Devereaux St. Clair. A press release notes that Davis will appear in five of the ten episodes in season three.
Powell’s POV: The third season of GLOW premieres on Friday, August 9. Unfortunately, that’s SummerSlam weekend, and with ROH running Friday, NXT on Saturday, and SummerSlam on Sunday, I’ll have to wait to check out the new season on Netflix. GLOW is a run and highly recommended show, and you can check out the first two seasons on Netflix.
Check below for the latest Pro Wrestling Boom Podcast with Jason Powell and Glenn “Disco Inferno” Gilbertti, who discusses how being a good heel doesn’t stop outside the ring, a trait that big name wrestlers have in common, his male chauvinist persona, why he didn’t work for WWE after the WCW sale, and more.
