Speaking further on her favorites from WWE’s Divas Interval, SoCal Val admitted that she might not relate to Trish Stratus when the WWE Hall of Famer developed from a valet to a “extreme wrestler” in 2002.
“When she was a supervisor for T&A [Test and Albert], that’s after I really associated alongside together with her,” Val confused. “When she grew to change into a extreme wrestler, and I suggest this with all due respect, I couldn’t relate as lots. Even with Lita, I couldn’t relate as lots. I didn’t want to be taken critically as a female wrestler. I do assume it’s good that they’ve that [option], nonetheless it’s not what I personally wished to do.”
Val then outlined why it’s “anti-feminist” for anyone to depend on all female wrestlers to focus solely on their in-ring craft.
“So the reality that we’ll not have every [serious female wrestling and glamorous divas] now, I actually really feel like, may very well be very anti-feminist,” Val talked about. “Throughout the sense that, feminism is about having freedom of choice. And if my choice wasn’t to be an athletic, great extreme wrestler, that’s my choice!
“If my choice was to be engaging and a diva-type, that’s my choice. Feminism is about supporting women’s selections. So it’s possible you’ll’t sit there and say ‘within the occasion you weren’t a extreme wrestler, you didn’t contribute to the enterprise.’ People like Sunny, Sable, Torrie Wilson, and Candice Michelle, these women have been my idols. So I uncover it very attention-grabbing that people have such an issue with the Divas Interval on account of if there was no Divas Interval, I may need misplaced curiosity immediately.”
