20. “There’s no place for se*ualization in WWE” – Stephanie McMahon
During a recent interview with Sky Sports, Stephanie McMahon talked about WWE viewing their male and female wrestlers equally and noted that there’s no place for se*ualization in WWE. Regarding the outfits that the female WWE wrestlers wear, Stephanie had the following to say:
“People shouldn’t be worried. Our athletes aren’t worried, especially when you look at Olympic level athletes having to wear certain types of clothing.
Our men and women have to wear spandex-type clothing because what they do in the ring is actually quite dangerous. If you had a lot of loose clothing then it could be a problem in the ring. This is athletics, this is sports, this is like live action theatre and there’s no denying the athleticism of our women in the ring and what they can do.”
Speaking of Stephanie McMahon, she recently discussed the backstage atmosphere at WrestleMania 33 after The Undertaker’s retirement. Below is what Stephanie had to say about this during a recent interview with The Mirror:
“There will never be another Undertaker… and everyone feels the same whether it’s backstage or out in the arena. I think that everyone that is part of the WWE Universe is a fan of The Undertaker. There will never be anyone else like him.”
