Episode 38 with Angelina “Little Egypt” Altishin

A very special edition of the Podcast this time out, as we welcome original GLOW girl Little Egypt (aka Angelina Altishin) to the show on the eve of the World Premiere of “GLOW: The Story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling” later this month in Canada. She was very instrumental in bringing back the various cast members of the 80s GLOW product for the documentary, and she talks about how it all came together, a taster of what we can expect in the movie, and the place of GLOW in wrestling history. We take a chance to ask Angelina all about how she got involved with GLOW back in the day, clarify exactly what Jackie Stallone did for the product, and discuss the ethos behind the show. We also touch on attempts to restart a GLOW themed project, such as Wrestlicious, and consider just why they haven’t worked. Angelina is also heavily involved in the Cauliflower Alley Club, which has its annual reunion next week – not only will former GLOW star Tina Ferrari (aka Lisa “Ivory” Moretti) be honoured, but Angelina will present two seminars for attendees, both of which are touched on here. Firstly, the importance of social media and how to use it to further your brand, and secondly, how to deal with moving out of the wrestling business, and which transferable skills a pro-wrestler has that can be successfully used in the real world. A fascinating discussion with an intelligent woman that has something for both fans and those already in the industry. Enjoy.
