"When I first started in NXT, there were certain moves we weren't required to learn because we were never going to do them. The idea was a catfight. It all changed for me when I was watching a match with Paige and Emma. They did a top rope suplex and we were like, 'Hell yeah, this is where it's all going to change.' It was awesome because it shows our women are athletic, can do what the men do, and can be seen in a different light. I respect the women who had to do the bra and panties match because I could never do it. Kudos, I couldn't do it. You've got to respect that because they did that, for us to do what we do now,"

This idea that these poor women for that 17 odd year period were superhero trailblazers is laughable.

It's like... The WWE dropped the bomb on a first world city, blew it back to the dark ages, and we're supposed to be in awe of those that came in the wake of the storm rolling around in the dirt like they're fucking pioneers. They weren't cave people, they were mannequins the company put in the window for everyone to ogle at because it decided to piss all over womens wrestling rather than trying to emulate the ridiculous levels the Japanese had taken it to for the prior decade and a half.

Giving these people any credit for their 'revolution' is a joke. Womens wrestling in the US should be so far beyond where it is right now.

They should bring them back. Not for every female wrestler, but for those who wanted to do it.. I could imagine Scarlett Bordeaux wouldn´t mind for instance, and maybe Mandy Rose too (considering how she participated in fitness and bikini contests before wrestling). Such a match could be the end of a feud.

Bra and panties matches were so boring for the most part. I tune into a wresting show, to watch wrestling, not softcore porn. If there are some women who actually would like to do that (not sure who would), and they pitch it to management, fine, but other than that, no thanks.

Look up Scarlett Bordeaux in Impact. Strip tease and lap dances for all :D.. Ok, maybe not all, but sex was a huge part of her gimmick, which she came up with herself.

Women were doing top rope suplexes before Emma vs. Paige. I also don't but it. If WWE was still doing bra and panty matches and it was the norm, and if they were still affiliated with Playboy, I could totally see Alexa doing that.

It's touching she respects those who did do Bra and Panties matches to fit the old model of hot girls selling their bodies just to keep their jobs but it's even more respectful that she won't partake herself it's good she has standards.

I've never masterbated while watching wrestling and it's legitimately worrying thinking that there are simps and incels out there that are that desperate that they did and do.

No thank you, I am glad that we got that shit over with in the WWE. If you want that go watch lesbians on porn sites.
This goes without saying but theres a big difference between naked chicks banging on screen then girls showing a bit of cleavage. I dont get why its a sin to miss those type of things seen in the golden years
No thanks. Women's wrestling is finally respected.
So women were dis-respected in bra and panties matches? Just an example of fun adult entertainment in my book. A few of those gimmick matches wouldnt hurt for old times sake.

Well...has she seen the shorts she wears in the ring?

Its not that different.

It's weird how shit that Lita and Trish were doing in 2000 is somehow game changing to this Era of women. There's this idea now that all the women who came along before Paige v Emma were just eye candy who competed in bra and panties matches every week.

Honestly, if Vince didnt humiliate Trish during the run up to wrestlemania 17, I doubt he wouldve changed much in terms of female wrestling. He was basically forced to change the way he did business in those regards. Probs also one of the things that ended the attitude era but thats a story for a different time
