Backstage Report – Internal Unhappiness With Some Of The ‘Mae Young Classic’ Women


Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

According to sources, the talent for WWE’s Mae Young Classic features talent age 20 through 36. The company has brought in women with a wide variety of looks, backgrounds, body types and ranging from very experienced to not experienced at all. There are some within the company that “believe that WWE women all have to be hot,” and are not happy with all of the choices. These people feel that a lot of the women brought in weren’t good looking enough for WWE standards. The company feels that the audience now reacts better to strong performers than hot women who are there for nothing other than being hot.

Those within the company have noted that the newer approach over the last year or so have led to stronger quarter hour ratings than in the days of Kelly Kelly & Maryse wrestling.
