“I wrote segments for you. The women’s games were five minutes long, of which two minutes were entrances. So you had three minutes to tell some kind of story in a wrestling match. That’s all we got. “

“Then you both sold a show to E called ‘Total Divas’. And this show started to gain a lot of audience and a lot of people started to watch it. Suddenly it got a higher rating than what WWE was putting out there. “

“I watch the match and I will never forget it, you two wrestled with Natty and someone and there was a commercial break. And I jumped off the couch and couldn’t remember that happened. I’ve been to the company a second time and talked a lot with Vince about it. I know that for sure because he said the words ‘that was the reason why women fights got more time’ … The reason women wrestling is what it is today is because of what you two have built and the other women you brought this show built too. ”H / t Wrestling with Freddie
