• WWE Hall Of Famer Unhappy About Older Women Not Getting Legends Work In Pro-Wrestling
WWE Hall Of Famer Alundra Blayze was recently interviewed on WrestlingInc Daily, where she talked about the evolution of women’s wrestling from the 80s to the product we see today.
Here’s what the former WWF Women’s Champion had to say:
“I think it’s spectacular. It circles back to what I was saying, we are where we are at because everybody before that did their job. Every era is an evolution, every era is a revolution, you know?
Every era is a learning situation. Either you liked it or you didn’t, it was good or it wasn’t. But it brought us to this point and it’s still going to elevate, and it needs to. It needs to elevate or change or the product is just going to stink.
Here’s my theory on that. We have men in their 60s out there, signing contracts, still making money, making debuts once every quarter. Why can’t a legend woman? We haven’t changed.
Here’s the criteria, every guy, or man, not every, but men would like to say, ‘women’s wrestling is better, it’s gotten better, they’re getting paid, they’re just as equal now, there’s intergender wrestling,’ No. It’s still not, it still hasn’t changed. You’ve got one or two women making a million dollars and the rest aren’t. When you’ve got hands and hands and handfuls of men making it.
When we get a certain age, women all of a sudden just become ugly. Men, bless their heart, they seem to get better looking, right? That’s what society says. But women, people feel that when women get older, they don’t need to be seen.
We’re getting older, we don’t look good, whatever the case is. So we don’t belong. This is a younger sport; this is a younger person’s job. That’s the mentality. Except for, it’s okay for men to still have the legends work, so our system is still busted.”
In 2015, Alundra Blayze (fka Madusa in WCW) was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by WWE Veteran Natalya.
