Missy Hyatt On WrestleMania Main Event: “Women Can Draw”
WWE deciding to use the Women’s Championship match as the main event of WrestleMania:
“Let me just tell you this. I don’t watch WWE that much because it is three hours (too much for me on a Monday), than you’ve got two hours Tuesday, plus NXT for an hour and six hours is just too much for me. I watch New Japan and Mexican stuff and other things like that but getting back to your question. If the women get to be the main event I think that is great. I got to be the main event in Texas Stadium with Sunshine in our Mud-Pit match, of course it had to be main event because nobody wanted to wrestle in the ring after we got mud all over the ring. So girls can be the main event. There is no reason why females can’t be the main event and the talent they have, oh my gosh it is amazing.”
The men being the least interesting part of the shows:
“Girls can draw. That is what I’ve got to say, girls do draw money. They put the butts in the seats but I mean as per WWE, I like my booking long term and I don’t like the booking that has been re-written at the last minute and constant changes in the direction but I like it that they highlight the women. I think that is the coolest thing.”
