• AJ Lee Recalls Women Being Punished For Their Looks In WWE
During a recent interview with Fair Game with Kristine Leahy, former WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee talked about how women used to be punished for their looks in WWE.
Below is what AJ said:
“In my time in the business, there was so much pressure on the girls to conform to a mold and a formula that worked. Not only was it pressure, you would sort of be punished if you didn’t.
There was a time when they would check to make sure our manicures were perfect. If our hair wasn’t long enough, they’d tell us we had to get extensions, and your weight would be commented on. That made for a lot of pressure where girls didn’t feel like they could just show who their genuine self was.
That’s understandable, but I’ve always been willing to fail if the only option is it’s either doing it my way and what’s true and genuine to me, or failure.
I will choose just to do it my way. I never want to compromise.”
