AJ Lee hits out at WWE boss Stephanie McMahon on Twitter

Published 19 Comments

WWE fans have had enough of the way that the Divas division has been treated recently and so it seems has AJ Lee.

Lee Lashing Out

The former Divas Champion, who held the title longer than anybody else in the history of the division, looks like she is in agreement with the WWE fans that feel the way in which Vince McMahon and his team of writers treats female wrestlers is nothing short of a disgrace.

Lee took to her verified Twitter account yesterday to lash out at Vince's daughter Stephanie McMahon, lambasting her for the state of women's wrestling in the WWE.

Diva's Backlash

"Your female wrestlers have record selling merchandise & have starred in the highest rated segment of the show several times...And yet they receive a fraction of the wages & screen time of the majority of the male roster. #UseYourVoice," Lee hit at McMahon in two separate tweets which we've abridged here.

Stephanie went on to "thank" AJ for her comments, but one has to doubt the sincerity behind the reply of "Thank you @WWEAJLee, I appreciate your opinion. #UseYourVoice."

30 Seconds = Fury

The backstory to all of this comes from unhappy WWE fans making the hashtag '#GiveDivasAChance' trend worldwide on Twitter for nearly 24 hours after what many saw as the last straw.

That last straw was the Diva's division being limited to a 30-second tag team match. Just 30 seconds of a three-hour show(!) showed the divas competing in an actual ring. Nikki and Brie Bella faced Paige and Emma, with Brie hitting a facebuster finisher on Emma being the only move of the match as she rolled up Emma for the win.

The presentation of the Divas division on Raw and SmackDown is quite frankly straight up embarrassing. And when you compare it to NXT where the likes of Charlotte, Sasha Banks and Bayley are allowed to put on 20 minute spectacles things look even worse for the WWE.

No wonder Brie Bella actually said that if she was in NXT she'd reject a call up to the WWE. Things are THAT BAD if you are a woman in Vince McMahon's company. Let's hope this leads to some actual change.
