Gail Kim: “I just think Vince McMahon did not like women’s wrestling”

WWE has been called a lot of things and a sexist workplace is, unfortunately, one of those. One former WWE star is speaking out against WWE’s Chairman Of The Board as she says she thinks Vince McMahon doesn’t even like women’s wrestling.

Gail Kim recently spoke to Sporting News where she opened up about what it was like for her to work for WWE as a female talent.

“My honest opinion, and this is only my opinion and I don’t know this as fact, I just think Vince McMahon did not like women’s wrestling. With this whole revolution that happened in WWE these past couple of years, it’s because of the fans. Remember they were saying ‘Give Divas a Chance’ that it got to the point where Vince is like OK, I’m going to give them a chance. It was really truly Hunter (Triple H) who created all these great girls in NXT. It wasn’t Vince. It’s almost like, thank God Hunter did it so that Vince could see the reaction that these girls were getting in NXT. Then it was OK, let’s jump on the bandwagon and let’s make it happen. I think he was never a fan of women’s wrestling whether he had talented girls or not and he didn’t want to watch that.”

Kim continued with her statements about how the female talent in WWE was treated by saying they never got much of a shot on television. She also complained about the fact that if they wanted to do anything new in the ring they had to receive approval first.

“When I was there, they really didn’t want us to do things. Even to do a superplex off the top rope, you had to keep it quiet until it happened and hopefully get approval from the agent. He would say do it and I’ll take the heat for it. It was just insane to me. To me, I always just feel like why would you hire a talent and not use them to the best of their ability? That’s the confusing part for me and that was the most frustrating part for me. But I just chalked it up to I was in that company at the wrong time.”

So what do you think about what Kim had to say?

Even if she obvserved that kind of thing when she was with the company that was a long time ago. Since then the Women’s Revolution very well might have gone to change things. But it wasn’t all bad because she did put Triple H over as someone who was able to break the already established trent of overlooking the female side of the roster.
