Women’s wrestling has come a long way over the last few years, and the women in WWE have been making history with the first ever women’s Royal Rumble, Hell in a Cell match, and other groundbreaking achievements.

But Gail Kim has been carrying the torch for women’s wrestling for quite some time, and she recently told the Women’s Pro Wrestling Weekly podcast that she thinks Stephanie McMahon could have stepped up to fight for women a long time ago.

“WWE always thinks in a business mindset. For them, they are thinking, ‘ok this woman’s revolution is becoming hot, Ronda Rousey, this ‘Me Too’ movement’; so of course to be honest I’m going to say this, because I’ve said it on Twitter, Stephanie (McMahon) could have been fighting for us a long time ago. She was there every single time I worked there and she had zero interest in fighting for the women back then. So, for them, everything is business motivated. So, them having this women’s revolution, and it’s from the fans as well… the fans did demand it through social media and Vince heard it and made it happen. And I think finally the girls are getting treated the way they want to get treated.”

Gail Kim is now retired from in-ring competition, but also revealed that there are a number of female wrestlers she would have loved to feud with.

“I would have loved to have a proper feud with some of the girls now, Allie, Rosemary, Taya, there are so many great girls. But, of course, you know Charlotte is an amazing athlete, I love her work. Now Asuka’s there. There are so many girls that are really talented right now. There is such a huge generation now that want to be wrestlers and workers. And now Ember Moon, I just heard debuted last night. She’s a great athlete too. There are so many girls. Charlotte, Sasha, Asuka those are probably my top three if you look at WWE.”
