Impact Wrestling Hall of Famer Gail Kim appeared as a special guest on a recent episode of the podcast Women’s Pro Wrestling Weekly. Gail Kim expressed her opinion on the women’s revolution in the WWE and stated that Stephanie McMahon had “zero interest” in women’s wrestling.
Gail criticised the way WWE handled the women’s revolution, only when they realized it would be a good move from a business point of view.
“WWE always thinks in a business mindset. For them, they are thinking, ‘ok this woman’s revolution is becoming hot, Ronda Rousey, this “Me Too” movement’; so of course, to be honest, I’m going to say this, because I’ve said it on Twitter; Stephanie (McMahon) could have been fighting for us a long time ago.”
Kim suggested that the other female wrestlers had lobbied for fairer treatment when she was in the WWE, only for Stephanie to show “zero interest.”
“She was there every single time I worked there and she had zero interest in fighting for the women back then. So, for them, everything is business motivated. So, them having this women’s revolution, and it’s from the fans as well….the fans did demand it through social media and Vince heard it and made it happen. And I think finally the girls are getting treated the way they want to get treated.”
