Original GLOW star Emily Dole, who wrestled as Mountain Fiji, has died of at the age 60.

Fellow GLOW alumni Patricia Summerland, who wrestled as ‘Sunny The California Girl’, broke the news on Twitter, writing:

“Rip Emily Dole! WE LOST OUR GLOW SISTER THIS MORNING .We are very sad that she passed away. We are the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling . She was the CHAMP IN THE RING. Fly high Mountain Fiji”

Dole’s Mountain Fiji was one of the most successful characters to come out of GLOW series during the 1980s, with her most notable feuds being against Matilda The Hun and Big Bad Mama. She appeared in the 2012 documentary GLOW: The Story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, which has now become available on Netflix.

Dole’s inspiration to the wrestling world can be seen on Netflix’s current GLOW series through Britney Young’s character Carmen ‘Machu Picchu’ Wade.

On behalf of the entire Diva Dirt team, we would like to extend our condolences to the family and friends of Emily “Mountain Fiji” Dole.

    Sad to hear this news, she was one of my favorites when I watched GLOW way back in the day.

    RIP Mt. Fiji

  • Marshy

    She has always been on the good side when she was facing Matilda The Hun and Big Bad Mama, not once did she ever join Miss Kitty’s side and she has always been one ofJackie’s girls. Before there was Tamina and Nia Jax that Mt. Fiji was the very first Samoan female wrestler from the 80’s. Rest in paradise Mt. Fiji.

      The heel manager on GLOW was Aunt Kitty. I used to love the segments where she would be trying to fix up Hollywood (of the tag team Hollywood & Vine) with GLOW boss/announcer David McLane.

      • Marshy

        Well I knew that it was something Kitty.
