After a long journey on the road in the U.S. Starstruck releases its latest WWE documentary as James Delow follows the female wrestlers who are changing the game of ‘sports entertainment’.
Smashing Glass Ceilings: The Women of WWE was commissioned by Channel 4’s on demand platform All4 and tells the story of Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks, two of the most popular female stars in WWE, as they prepare for the biggest match in their careers; a dangerous ‘Hell in a Cell’ cage match.
Not only was this the first time women have competed in a gimmick match of this nature, this also ended up being the first time ever females had headlined a WWE pay-per-view. The Starstruck cameras were rolling in the TD Garden Arena in Boston as the news broke of the upcoming main event match, and captured all the backstage reaction and emotion from Charlotte and Sasha as they nervously built up to this life-changing event they’d strived so hard for.
Smashing Glass Ceilings is an exploration of the growing popularity of female athletes in WWE, with unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to some of the organisations biggest stars, during a time of great change in the wrestling landscape.
