G.L.O.W. Diary 10

Monday, Week 2, March 1983

Before the show, I introduced the girls to Don Coss, our new announcer/heel manager. He was a really nice guy and I thought we'd get along fine. As for McLane, I had security tell him that if he wanted to get in, he'd have to buy a ticket. I heard him shouting outside that he still owned almost half the company before he gave up and left.

We had only 383 people at the Mayan Theater. I wondered if McLane hadn't sabotaged the advertising.

"If you ever butt into my affairs again, bitch, I'll make sure to slap the taste right out of your stinking mouth! This is your last warning, Sally the Farmer's Daughter - stop messing with my business, or you'll pay the price."[D]

Tuesday, Week 2, March 1983

The meeting the next morning was a mixed bag. Ashley, Tina, and Beastie all wanted to be in next week's show, but I could only get one of them in. And that was going to be the one with ring skills.

"There just isn't enough money."

"But didn't you save money by getting rid of McLane?" asked Ashley.

"Yes, but not much, and next week I have to pay to have a steel cage built."

"Steel cage?" asked Dee.

"For Tammy and Emily's match. I want Tammy to go out on a high note, I'd like to have her back some day."

Dee shook her head. "You can't put these girls in a steel cage. They could get hurt."

The steel cages that were used around that time were constructed of tubular steel bars that had no give. She was right.

"I have an idea." said Don. "We can build the cage so it has more give. It won't look as good, but it's safer. Probably will be cheaper too."

As the meeting ended, I told Palestina that she would be missed. I asked her if she'd consider returning once we were better off financially.

"In this business, you never say never."
