Maria Kanellis, who has had two runs in WWE, is known to speak her mind and did so during an appearance on the KAWADA DRIVER show.
The former WWE star talked about how she thinks WWE doesn’t do enough for women’s wrestling. This led to her talking about why this makes her question Stephanie McMahon’s advocacy for the female talent.
“So, you have all these pointless pay-per-views, you have the opportunity to have a women’s empowerment pay-per-view and you don’t do it? I don’t get it. I don’t know how Stephanie McMahon deals with that. Like as a woman, I’ve been very outspoken about my feelings about women’s wrestling and women in wrestling. It should come as no surprise that as a woman I couldn’t deal with that.
If I had all that power in the industry like I couldn’t deal with that. I have minimum power in this industry and I am fighting my tail off to create more opportunities.So like, if I had that much power there would be a whole show plus a reality show that actually covers the girls’ lives. Plus, on top of that, we would have a makeup line and be on the cover of Vogue saying, ‘guess what? These women are badasses and they are beautiful in their own right.’”
She continued by talking about how that is what she’s trying to do in ROH.
