That’s not the great way to go. Women’s wrestling has come a very long way in the last few years. After spending so much time as little more than a sideshow attraction, women’s wrestling eventually became a major part of WWE programming. The previous years were mainly focused on their appearances though, and now a former star is explaining just how bad things were.
During an appearance on the Cafe de Rene podcast, former WWE developmental star Angelina Love spoke about some things former WWE Head of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis said to her. This included suggesting that Love lose weight, by asking how she felt her height/weight ratio worked at 5’5 and 130lbs. Love said that she was too terrified to respond to anything Laurinaitis said to her. Love wrestled in WWE’s developmental system from 2004-2007 before moving on to Impact Wrestling.
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that happens far too often in wrestling and it seems to have happened to Love as well. While there are certain visual aspects in wrestling that need to be done in a certain way, this is the kind of thing that probably could have been handled far better. Love was a very talented star during her career and had a lot of success in Impact, making me think this was quite the miss for WWE.
What do you think of Love’s career? How far could she have gone in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
