Alundra Blayze talked about why women’s wrestling doesn’t draw like you think it might. Speaking in an interview with Alyx, she detailed the fan’s need for something real.
This is what Alundra Blayze said, “OK, let me ask you a question. Why doesn’t the women’s WNBA sell out ever? The truth is the truth. It’s an all-women’s league. Women don’t appeal to the majority. It is what it is. And it is a problem. However, why Alyx does MMA women sell out? Because it is brass, it is hard-hitting, it is believable and it is gutsy and it is badass.”
Alundra Blayze believes it’s about being real and believable. “Who’s sitting in the audience more than anything? Men. Who’s sitting in the audience for wrestling mainly? Men. Look at how every single woman comes out to the ring. Their hair is done, their makeup is thick and they look beautiful. Every piece of clothing is perfect, right? But in MMA, It’s authentic. It’s real. Like, right now, I have no makeup on except mascara and eyelashes. That’s what people want. People want real. Now we have been so smoked and full of BS in the last few years that people are sick of it, right? People want something that’s real.”
What do you think? Is Alundra Blayze right?
