WWE Hall Of Famer Tammy Sytch, was a recent guest on Jim Ross’s podcast; “The Ross Report”. During their conversation, Sytch revealed that she is not a huge fan of the of women’s wrestling [current product of it] & she provided her take on WWE dropping the term “Diva”.
Here are the highlights:
WWE Dropping The “Diva” Term:
“Honest to god, I don’t really watch the show that much so I don’t really know everything that’s going on, but I do have it on tonight and right now the girls are on. I think they shouldn’t get away from the ‘Diva’ thing completely, because I think there should be both. I think there should be women wrestlers and champions and then there should be Divas. I think there’s a place on the roster for all of them. Do I think its overkill with how many girls are there right now? I think three was a much better number (in 1996) than what is it, twenty something that they’ve got right now? I think it’s a little bit overkill. I really think it’s too much, I honestly do.”
Is Sytch A Fan Of Women’s Wrestling?:
“That’s a very difficult question to answer. Let me try to be as politically correct as I can. You know me, I’m not the most politically correct person in the world, I’m the female Jim Cornette, so I have to word this correctly here. Am I happy that more girls in the business that bust their ass are getting shots? Absolutely, I’m happy with that. Have I always been a fan of women’s wrestling? No and I’ll tell you why. There are some guys that can go out there and sell a dropkick like they’re dead, but then these girls pop right back up from all these bigger moves, it just makes it a little unbelievable. Why should a frail girl and I’m not saying they’re all frail, but they’re much smaller than men; how can they be more resilient to some big moves than some of these guys? So I think there’s a lot lost in the psychology of wrestling because of that. They’re doing, you know, 18,000 moonsaults and moonsaults from the outside, from the top and popping right back from it when guys are doing the same thing and selling it for five minutes. That’s why I’ve never been a huge fan of women’s wrestling. Is there a place for women in wrestling? Abso-freaking-lutely, but I don’t know, I think something is missing in the psychology of women’s wrestling, I really do.”
