Women's Wrestling has been undergoing big changes this year, with the Divas Revolution completely changing the game in the WWE.

The women have more matches on TV, they last a lot longer and they aren't being subjected to the same catty, bitchy stereotypes that the WWE have gone on with for so long. And it's been incredibly well received to boot.

Well, apart from by one WWE Hall of Famer that is. Greg 'the Hammer' Valentine appeared on the Filsinger Games podcast and made some disgraceful comments about women's wrestling.

Disgraceful Comments

Valentine made some very controversial statements about women during a Q & A at the Wrestling Geek Fest, that will not go down well with the WWE.

Valentine said that he would be running WWE very differently if he were in charge. In addition to having slower paced matches, he would put an end to the entire Divas division, and send them all out to a strip bar.

"I would send them all out to the strip bar and fire them," Valentine spouted, "I'm not knocking how, physically, they look - I won't go that far... I'd fire every girl wrestler I ever saw."

Fire Every Female

The reasons Valentine gave for believing that women have no place as professional wrestlers were that women "don't draw any money", "they have horrible matches", and that female wrestlers take jobs from male wrestlers "that need to support their families."

"I love women, but they've got to realize they're in their place," Valentine stated.

He went on to add that women are not supposed to be wrestlers, MMA fighters, or boxers. He added, "they need to be home washing dishes and cooking and pregnant and barefoot."

This is disgraceful, despicable and embarrasing. Let's hope the WWE address it and kick Valentine to the curb.
