I was hoping that Glee would showcase wrestling this season as it would give more visibility to the sport. Glee is such a popular show on TV that it could do a lot of good for the sport that sometimes struggles to stay around. Well they did; sort of.
In the latest episode titled ‘Bad Reputation’ they remade Olivia Newton John’s song ‘Lets Get Physical’ and in the video the guys were wearing wrestling singlets and performing dance moves that sometimes resembled what you might see in a wrestling practice.
Depending on how you look at it, Glee may or may not have promoted amateur wrestling. Sure the guys looked like wrestlers, but it was more about the body than the sport. See for yourself.
I don’t think Glee really promoted wrestling, but it may be as close as it gets.
If you want to check out the full episode of Glee, you can catch it on Hulu.
