Women have come a long way in recent years from being seen as the bathroom break to being the main events to many pay-per-views. Ronda Rousey, Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair are set to main event Wrestlemania for the first time in WWE history.
With all that in mind, Michelle McCool went on record and said that it was time for the women to be paid like the men in WWE.
“I do think the women should get paid, a main event is a main event,” McCool told TMZ Sports. “I hope they do and think they should.”
McCool is not the first woman to talk about this subject. In fact, AJ Lee talked about equal pay for women back in 2015. McCool also said she is grateful for the women who paved the way for her and she’s proud of what they’ve accomplished since she left the company in 2011.
Becky Lynch was recently offered a new multi-year deal with a pay raise so it looks like WWE might already be taking steps to fix the pay gap.
S.A.M.’s Spiel: With the news of Bekcy’s new contract offer, I do hope WWE is moving towards paying women more. It is long overdue for equal pay to enter the WWE and I hope this is a move in that direction.
