Smashing Glass Ceilings. Channel 4 Documentary.
James Delow of the UK’s Gorilla Position podcast directed and produced this documentary about the WWE Women’s Revolution for Channel 4. It details Sasha and Charlotte’s thoughts leading up to their historic Hell in a Cell match. Interviewed during the documentary were Becky Lynch, Bayley, Nikki Bella, Finn Balor, Daniel Bryan, Mick Foley, and more. They detailed the risks of the HIAC match, and the risks of wrestling in general. Daniel Bryan emphasized how his career ending injury did not come from a brutal match, but a simple boot to the head.
This is a fantastically produced documentary with a well in depth analysis of the thought processes of Sasha, Charlotte, and the other women who are pleased with the evolution of women’s wrestling. Natalya made sure to emphasize the graciousness of both women as they continue to elevate the status of women’s wrestling. Sasha affirmed this praise by saying she’s proud to be doing this for the women of the past who laid the groundwork before her, and Charlotte added to it by saying that she wishes all of the women could stand with her and celebrate this groundbreaking moment together.
