• Former WWE Women’s Champion Not Happy With WWE Trying To Be A Monopoly
During a recent interview with WrestlingInc, former WWE Women’s Champion and Impact Wrestling Hall of Famer Gail Kim talked about WWE signing a lot of female wrestlers and trying to be a monopoly.
Below is what Gail said:
“WWE is basically scooping up all the talent and making it really difficult. They say they want competition and like competition, but I don’t believe that. They are trying to make this a monopoly.
I don’t think that’s proven to be a successful formula. You should let people do it the old school way and let everyone chase after their dreams and give them good-money contracts instead of giving 50 low-money contracts. I think this way they’re doing it is not great for the talent out there.”
