In my writing about games I have covered the beloved, the hated and unique titles that come across my desk, in an attempt to share experiences, to expose others to great stories or create memories, and in a hope to find out something new to share about the titles. There has always been a desire to do more. Readers have asked me to uncover information, discuss what happened behind-the-scenes, and find the unknown. Now, thanks to a random encounter through a professional wrestling forum, I may have stumbled onto the jackpot.
Women’s wrestling is a frequent topic with friends and colleagues, but in a recent back-and-forth about GLOW(Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling), we landed on Jeanne Basone, better known to her fans as incredible Hollywood. The former stuntwoman and athlete had several small roles on shows like Married with Children, In Living Color, and Saved by the Bell, but I couldn’t resist taking my shot and mentioning her most memorable and tragic work from my writing exploits, as Jane in the infamous Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties. I thought this would be a short joke, a good chuckle for later, and we would move on, but that was when one of the users began to talk about the game in detail, and I was hooked.
