WWE could be very happy with their Girls’s Evolution, however that wasn’t at all times the corporate line. Just some years in the past, WWE Divas had been relegated to brief matches and instructed that they weren’t allowed to do something which may overshadow the boys.
WrestleTalk Magazine lately spoke to former WWE star Katie Lea Burchill, who now goes as Winter. She remembered a time when Melina and Michelle McCool had been scolded backstage for having a match that was seen as “too good.”
“I witnessed the same incident when on the street with WWE. I bear in mind a very spectacular PPV match between Michelle McCool and Melina. These two ladies pulled out all of the stops, presenting continuous motion with the struggle spilling exterior the ring with some modern spots on the gang barrier. We had been impressed; the ‘powers that be’ weren’t. It was deemed too good a match they usually had been instructed in no unsure phrases to tone it down sooner or later.”
WWE doesn’t maintain that very same mindset towards their programming now. Sports Illustrated ranked Sasha Banks as the #1 pro wrestler in the world last year.
The ladies’s matches are essential eventing WWE reveals that they’d by no means get greater than 5 minutes on earlier than. Fortunately, reprimanding ladies for being good within the ring is a factor of the previous.
