Circle squared women TRUTH taking

Women are continuously fighting to gain equality in everyday life – and it is no exception within the world of professional wrestling.

If you ask someone who used to watch wrestling what they thought of when someone mentioned women’s wrestling, it is easy to imagine what the response was.

The answers would have referenced the company WWE and were along the lines of, “you mean the valets” or “the toilet break”.

Women’s wrestling matches of the past were renowned for barely reaching five minutes, being the first to be cut in shows that overran and occasionally based on gimmicks such as red carpet, Christmas and even lingerie pillow fights.

In an interview with former WWE superstar Gail Kim on PressBox Online, former member WWE creative Kevin Eck stated that, back in the day, WWE’s Chairman Vince McMahon view was that “no one wants to see the girls fight like the guys”.

Fast forward to 2019 and WWE has tried to change, and things have moved on leaps and bounds since the ‘Diva’ days.

WWE now have women main eventing pay-per-views, allowing them to participate in matches that they were never really allowed to do and participate in an all-female pay-per-view called Evolution last year.

They also had women main eventing Wrestlemania in April, which is the biggest show in the company’s calendar year.

However, is it WWE at the forefront of the so-called ‘women’s revolution’ and how much of it is a genuine desire to make change rather than a PR stunt to please fans?

Critics of the company itself and those desiring change have put the advancement down to the wrestlers themselves, the passionate fans and independent wrestling companies who have pushed the boundaries to make the women’s wrestling populate possible rather than the work of the WWE.

Emily and Dann Read, the founders of one of the leading all-female promotions in the world, Pro-Wrestling: EVE, have the mentality that the WWE is not the pioneer in women’s wrestling that they want people to believe.

Dann said: “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.”

Looking at the promotion since the start of the revolution, it is hard not to understand this point of view. Whenever a landmark match was made with the women, it was always done on the largest scale possible and with an emphasis that it is being done for the women’s revolution for the world to see.

Yet this was not always carried out on a smaller scale and consistently within the smaller shows.

They seem to be focusing on the smoke and mirrors rather than getting to the core of the issue and still rarely revert to their traditional ways.  

However, is this mentality and history of WWE because of a society which just made a traditional mindset of the role of women seem normal?

From a young age, children are presented with a world of stereotypes from the toys they are expected to play with, the clothes they are expected to wear and even phrases such as ‘that’s not very ladylike’  or ‘It’s just boys being boys’.

This can highlight a wider problem in society and what is ingrained in people’s minds from those around us. This surrounds the issues in regard to the role of women in society and also the ‘standards’ expected from women within industries such as wrestling and even the world of music and film.

Emily Read is extremely passionate about this issue and thinks that it is a barrier facing women in the industry and stopping progress from occurring.

She told MM: “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.”

Looking at the main players within WWE’s women’s division who are constantly been given the opportunities, Emily believes that it is confined to a very small number of competitors. She sees a lack of diversity within those ‘top stars’ in the company.

However, if you look at some of the best wrestlers across the world and the hundreds of promotions, there are women of every size, colour and personality.

A lot more needs to be done by the companies who claim to be pioneering a revolution by presenting us with a range of women who we can relate to.
