Wrestling-Themed TV Shows

With the new Netflix show GLOW already receiving GLOWing rave reviews, it’s safe to assume that pro wrestling fans have finally gotten a live-action TV show about wrestling that gets it right, and to top it off, actually holds some kind of artistic merit. But before you decide to binge on all 10 episodes of Netflix’s latest female empowering dramedy, please refer to this list of those wrestling shows (both animated and live action) that came before GLOW, and died a miserable cancellation, or are actually still airing.
