• WWF Legend Tells Vince McMahon To Start An All-Women’s Show Before AEW Does
WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley recently went on Twitter to tell Vince McMahon to start a wrestling program that only features female athletes, before Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling would beat him to it by doing one themselves.
Here’s what the former WWF Champion tweeted:
An all women’s brand NEEDS to happen in @WWE. Unless you want @AEW to beat you to the punch.

Former WWE Women’s Champion Gail Kim then joined the conversation and said Impact Wrestling could do it too.

The conversation for an all-women’s show was first started by Mickie James.
During an appearance on GAW TV, Mickie talked about pitching the idea of an all-women’s brand in WWE and why that wasn’t considered.
Here’s what Mickie said:
“Anything I’ve pitched, they weren’t into it. I wanted to find a balance in between.
There was this moment where I said, ‘What if we do an all-female brand?’ If I could help lead up that and have an awesome team of women…we have the talent, tools, and facilities. It would really help all the girls who are not getting television time.
This one person says to me, ‘They’re never going to do it. Ever. Women’s Wrestling doesn’t make money. WWE Evolution was the lowest-rated PPV ever in WWE. I get what you’re trying to do, but I don’t understand why you’re fighting so hard for it. You should play the cards you’re dealt and see if there’s a way to incorporate that within a show rather than fight for it to be its own show.’
I just realized that every decision they do, a lot of it is business and how it falls in line with business.
I’m just disappointed as a whole with being made to feel old with depends and a walker and the whole ageism thing. I think we missed out on a lot of moments.”
