While speaking to Pro Wrestling Torch, former WWE creative team member Kevin Eck discussed Vince McMahon and revealed that McMahon didn’t believe former WWE Diva Kaitlyn was attractive. However, Vince was apparently a major supporter of AJ Lee even thought she didn’t fit the cookie cutter mold of a Diva.
“The women that I heard that Vince found unattractive would blow your mind, like Kaitlyn – not attractive. That would just blow my mind. I just couldn’t believe some of the things I used to hear. I’ll tell you what, he grew to love A.J. Lee, that whole storyline she did with CM Punk, Daniel Bryan…he grew to love her just as a character. I think that’s why A.J. got the push she did because obviously she didn’t fit the cookie cutter mold of a Diva either. Nothing against them; but, The Bella Twins, Kelly Kelly…that was the mold of WWE women.”
