Bobby Lashley is the current WWE Champion but recently released WWE superstar and former WWE Women’s Champion Mickie James says that Lashley being champion is a sign of hypocrisy from her former employer. During a recent edition of her Grown Ass Women podcast, James states that it particularly unfair for how WWE treated her, which is blames on ‘ageism’ while also glorifying stars such as Bobby Lashley for being an older champion. She stated the following remarks on the show. Will Bobby Lashley be ‘losing’ his WWE title to a new star?
“I think the small-minded mentality sometimes leads to thoughtless behavior,” Mickie said. “Especially for me, to constantly be presented as old, when I’m 41 and every single male champion has always been my same age or older and has been glorified for those reasons. As they should be, they’re f***king amazing. But, why is it different for women? Or why is it different for me? Ageism is a real thing and it’s bulls***.
James would continue saying: “I’m truly grateful for the strides that we [as women] have made, and to be seen as more equal. But it’s simply not true for every single person. Sometimes, that’s unfortunate. I don’t know why I was made to feel like I didn’t deserve [the same treatment] because I did everything in my power to be a company girl, and for some reason I was made to feel like I didn’t deserve it.” Bobby Lashley recently ‘rejected’ this new Hurt Business member.
