Mickie James Thinks It’s Unfair Women Have To Retire By 35


Mickie James made her thoughts known in a series of posts on Twitter about there is a double standard in the wrestling industry.

She noted how women are expected to retire by 35 but men are allowed to wrestle into their 50s.

“I agree 1000 percent,” wrote Mickie. “But in this industry once you hit 35 it’s perceived you should start wrapping it up and retire as a women. Even though your just hitting you stride. At 40 “retire already” Even though the men are champs well into there 50s and glorified for it. Sad but true.”

“With age comes a strength and wisdom that you can’t teach. I feel more powerful & sexy than I ever have. Yet it is only this way because this is the narrative we’ve accepted to be ok. We’ve pushed this mindset & it’s damn time we changed it. Times have changed. And so have we!”
