Pro-Wrestling EVE co-founders chat about WWE's women's revolution.
The conversation about WWE taking the reigns as the pioneers of the women's revolution in wrestling has been discussed on various fronts and many former and current female wrestlers have voiced their opinions on the topic. The latest to weigh in on the conversation was co-founder of the Pro-Wrestling EVE promotion, Dann Read. Dann Read and fellow co-founder Emily Read, were profiled by 'MancunianMatters' and were asked about the women's revolution in WWE and Dann explained his stance on why he thinks WWE's revolution is a lie.
“This whole women’s revolution is a lie. Work is being put in, but the acceptance isn’t there on the scale the promotion and fans are trying to make it. A lot of it is all talk. They make themselves look good, but actually, it’s not better.” He said.
Emily feels that there is a barrier in women's wrestling that hinders progression. She expressed that it is very telling that people who talk about WWE and the wrestlers they choose to feature are raving about those who are commercially beautiful.
“It’s very telling that people who talk about WWE wrestling and the wrestlers they show are raving about what I say are commercially beautiful. Whereas women who maybe don’t fit in that box won’t be given credit by those people.” She explained.
During WWE's Super ShowDown event in Saudi Arabia, Pro-Wrestling EVE hosted a stream of women's wrestling matches to counter no women's wrestling being featured on the Saudi Arabia show.
