“They hate women” – WWE veteran speaks out on fan backlash involving top female Superstars

Recent events in the WWE Universe have stirred controversy and led to a pointed response from Dutch Mantell, a respected veteran of the wrestling world. Mantell has commented on the recent backlash involving prominent female wrestlers, specifically Becky Lynch and Rhea Ripley.

Becky Lynch’s Rivalry with Hall of Famer Trish Stratus

Becky Lynch, one of WWE’s most beloved female wrestlers, recently took on WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus in a high-profile feud. Their electrifying match at Night of Champions in Saudi Arabia ended with Stratus standing tall. With such star power involved, the absence of a follow-up match at SummerSlam has left fans and insiders alike puzzled.

Rhea Ripley, another superstar who has been making waves in the wrestling world, achieved the pinnacle of her career when she defeated Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 39 to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship. However, since that marquee moment, Ripley’s title reign has been relatively quiet.

Her recent feuds with Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez, both former Women’s Tag Team Champions, promised much-needed excitement. But as with Lynch and Stratus, their confrontation has been conspicuously missing from the SummerSlam card, leading to speculation and criticism.

Dutch Mantell’s Scathing Comments on Tru Heel Heat Wrestling

The exclusion of two significant women-led rivalries from SummerSlam’s lineup did not go unnoticed. Dutch Mantell didn’t hold back when he discussed the situation on Tru Heel Heat Wrestling.

“Misogynistic,” Mantell began. “They hate women. They took the females off, and what can I say, that’s anti-women. What else can I say? You just got to put it out there. Why don’t they take some men off? You ever think about that?”

Mantell’s comments have since ignited discussions on social media platforms and wrestling forums worldwide, with fans and industry insiders sharing their views.

Future Implications for WWE

It remains to be seen how WWE will respond to this criticism. The organization has made significant strides in elevating women’s wrestling in recent years, from the Women’s Revolution to the main event of WrestleMania being a women’s match. As such, the recent decisions surrounding the SummerSlam card raise questions.

It’s worth noting, however, that the Becky Lynch vs. Trish Stratus rematch has already been scheduled for August 14, 2023, on an episode of WWE RAW. This event, airing live from the Canadian Life Center in Winnipeg, promises to be a significant one, with potential implications for SummerSlam’s card and WWE’s ongoing commitment to its female talent.
