Over the last few years women’s wrestling has been on the rise, and the Women’s Revolution shows no signs of slowing down.
However, former WCW star Disco Inferno isn’t a big fan of women’s wrestling, and he explained why during a recent Impact Wrestling media call.
“I am not a big fan of women’s wrestling,” said Inferno via Wrestling Inc. “To me women’s wrestling is kind of like the WNBA. They’re the best female basketball players in the world, but they’re not as good as the guys. I’m not saying that there’s not a lot of talented women’s wrestlers. But the formula has shown in the past that regardless of your in-ring work, the more attractive you are determines how over you are. I am a fan of the women’s wrestlers that can combine good looks with good work. If there’s a girl out there whose work isn’t as good but she’s hotter and has sex appeal, I’m a fan of that.”
However, Info did praise Velvet Sky, and said that he was a big fan of The Beautiful People.
“My favorite women’s wrestler of all time was Velvet Sky,” stated Inferno. “I thought the Beautiful People was a great gimmick for two female professional wrestlers. They looked great and had a great entrance and could wrestle. I was a big fan of that. But collectively, I’m not a big fan of women’s wrestling. They had that Mae Young Classic – I can’t watch that. Pro wrestling to me is based around grown men that want to fight each other….That’s just what I’m a fan of.”
