• AEW Wrestler Reacts To Triple H Saying WWE Has All The Best Female Wrestlers
During a recent media call, Garry Cassidy asked Triple H about NWA doing their own all-women’s PPV and Mickie James (Executive Producer of this upcoming PPV) wanting world’s top women wrestlers on that show (despite wherever they are signed).
The Game said the following about it:
“It’s a funny thing to me. I just don’t…So equality is equality. Equality is not, ‘I want my own show.’ Equality is not, ‘We have to have our own programme.’ If I told you that I was making an all-men’s program and I didn’t want women on it, it would be criticized, and I’m not saying that’s right or wrong.
I do think it’s funny when people go, ‘I want the best in the world regardless of contractual status.’ I’m sorry. From a business person standpoint, then why do we have contractual status? Right? It doesn’t make any sense to me. Yeah, if you want to wrestle the best women in the world, come to the WWE. That’s where they are. If you want to go elsewhere and say that they are, that’s an opinion – and you can. But it is what it is.
And while I’m all for it, I was one of the biggest drivers of it and will we do another all-women’s event down the line? Possibly. But it’s not the must-have at the moment. I think we do an amazing job of displaying our female athletes and is it perfect? No. Will it always be in flux? Yes, but I think we do a pretty good job.
And my opinion – again, my opinion – the best female performers in the world are in WWE. And then if they’re not, they want to be.”
AEW wrestler Thunder Rosa tweeted the following about it:
“The Best Female Wrestlers are not located in one company not even in one country. They are spread over many companies and many countries! Talented women across the Globe!”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (June 13, 1982) – Old School WWWF Legend Passed Away
On this day in 1982, we lost Old School WWWF Legend “High Chief” Peter Maivia (Real name: Fanene Leifi Pita Maivia) at the age of 45 due to cancer.
Peter Maivia was the father-in-law of Old School WWF Veteran Rocky Johnson and the grandfather of Old School WWF Legend & Hollywood Superstar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
The High Chief used to wrestle for Vince McMahon Sr.’s World Wide Wrestling Federation, where he feuded with “Superstar” Billy Graham, among many others.
Maivia, who was also the NWA promoter for the Hawaii territory, played a villain in the 1967 James Bond movie “You Only Live Twice”, where he had a memorable fight scene with Sean Connery, who portrayed 007.
In 2008, him and Rocky Johnson were both inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by The Rock.
† REST IN PEACE PETER MAIVIA
