Mick Foley wants an all-female WWE brand and is encouraging Vince McMahon to listen. Because if Vince doesn't, Foley believes Tony Khan and AEW will.
Mickie James made headlines on Wednesday when she revealed she pitched an all-female brand to a certain staff member in WWE over WrestleMania 37 weekend.
Mickie recalled the pitch and the response, saying, "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."
Foley believes Vince McMahon and WWE should listen to what Mickie had to say.
Gail Kim responded, saying IMPACT could beat everyone to the punch.
Foley has recently influenced WWE with his tweets, asking WWE to rethink its decision to remove John Cone as Senior Manager Of WWE Talent Relations. WWE listened, rescinding the demotion of Cone.
Mickie was released by WWE on April 15 and told all about her release and being sent a trash bag as part of her "care package." You can find her full comments by clicking here.
