Netflix's new wrestling comedy series GLOW debuts this weekend, which means the 80's baddest women in the ring are heading back to your TV sets courtesy of Alison Brie and company. Since cross-combat sports bouts seem to be all the rage these days, we decided to see which mixed martial arts stars we'd like to see throw down alongside the women of GLOW.
Thanks to Alison Brie's new Netflix series GLOW, the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling are making a comeback in a big way. While the comedy show puts a spotlight on the antics of these '80s pro wrestling stars, whatever happened to the actual female-focused organization? Well, it's a little complicated. Since GLOW took a more comedic take on the wrestling scene, using models, actresses and dancers as its stars, the laughs were just as big a part of the show as the fights.
Rock n' rollers and music superstars are known for their usually outrageous backstage demands before their shows. Justin Bieber reportedly requested a "yoga casket," jacuzzi and even food named after his hits prior to a recent performance in Mumbai, while Lady Gaga once asked for a mannequin with pink pubic hair as a condition of her tour rider. Whatever floats your boat, we guess. When it comes to English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, though, he's a star with much more down-to-earth tastes.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
