Mountain Fiji — who appeared on the original Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling series — has passed away at the age of 60.

Patricia Summerland aka Sunny The California Girl tweeted on Wednesday saying, “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.”

It’s unclear what her cause of death was at this point.

While it hasn’t been stated in any interviews or articles, the character of Machu Picchu on Netflix‘s GLOW series seems to have been inspired by Dole’s wrestling character. She was also featured in the popular documentary available on Netflix as well.

    Watch the Netflix documentary (not the series from last year, the actual documentary on the 80s promotion). This news will probably make you a lot sadder then.

    I’m crushed by this news. Just like the time I let Fiji have the top.

  • Louis

    Way too young.

    RIP

  • David Fullam

    Her health was very, very bad. May she rest in peace now.

    The news of her transition is heartbreaking 😭. I loved watching her every Saturday morning.
