WOW and GLOW creator David McClane spoke to WPW Weekly for a new interview. You can see highlights below, and the full podcast above and at this link.
David McLane Talks about The Beast:
When Andre the Giant walked into the ring and stepped over the third rope you went; 'there is a phenomenon' . I think that is what is going to happen for hundreds of thousands of people that are going to tune in on Friday night, when they see The Beast.The Beast in a phenom in any athletic endeavor and level.
David McLane Talks About The WOW and GLOW Superheros Being In the Ring Together:
We had many of the WOW wrestlers at one of the live events in Los Angeles and paid homage to them. And we even had Jacqueline Stallion at the live events and she will be on the TV taping, thanking her for supporting women’s wrestling for so long. But in terms of in the ring, no. The athletic ability of the wrestlers today is so superior to anything that was even five years ago, more or less 20 or 30 years ago. WOW is the ultimate competition in women’s wrestling and when you see each of the competitors you’ll know why.This isn’t a comedy event, this is real women’s wrestling.
David McLane Talks About His Game Plan for WOW:
For one thing it will still be around. Those other renditions, I had business partners that never had the same vision that I did and subsequently they didn’t last very long. Especially, the second one, it was an rendition right out of GLOW , so it was like taking GLOW. When I left GLOW as Little Egypt will tell you, twenty eight out of thirty two women left with me. So that said, that was just a under financed and unorganized and a scramble to just go out on the road and see what we can do. This is the ultimate dream, this is the ultimate vision that I’ve had for 30 some years. This is the presentation of women’s wrestling that I will be most proud of because this combines everything that was great about GLOW with the athleticism and the presentation of the athletes that I’ve always dreamed women’s wrestling would become.
David McLane Talks About His Other Jobs At WOW:
They don’t know when I’m at training and Selina Majors and Tessa Blanchard are there, I actually sweep the ring because they tell me to get in the ring and do it.
