WWE News: Vince Russo says he doesn't think women were created to be leaders
The former WWE/WCW writer says he believes women are meant to bear and raise kids.
Former WCW Champion and infamous writer for WWE/WCW in the 90s, Vince Russo, lost a close member of his family recently and announced that he would stop watching Monday Night Raw altogether. This was to focus on the things in life that mattered to him.
This week he took to his podcast entitled ‘The Brand’ and proclaimed vociferously that he thought that women weren’t born to be leaders. This was obviously a dig at Hillary Clinton, who lost to WWE Hall of Famer Donald Trump in the recent US Presidential Elections.
He also urged his listeners to give Donald Trump a chance, because he hasn’t done anything yet.
The cause of concern and shock for a lot of his listeners was when Russo proclaimed that as a Christian man, he did not believe that women were created to be leaders or run the country. Here’s how he justified his statement:
“I don’t believe a woman was created to run this country based on the fact that the woman was taken from the man’s rib.”
He did reiterate that it was just his opinion. He went on to add, “Woman wasn’t created first. The man was created first. The woman was created second. I believe that’s how God wanted the pecking order to be.”
However, he did mention that women have the most important job of giving birth, rearing kids and raising kids, in addition to moulding and shaping them. And he considered this to be a more important role than that of leadership. He said he loves his wife more than he used to, and her job was more important than his.
Without picking sides, the show went from amusing to ridiculous when Russo proclaimed that if men and women had been created equal, everyone would have the same sex organs.
He bemoaned the politically correct world and repeatedly said that he wasn’t a sexist. He went on to mention how a listener had told him, that he would stop listening to the show because of his sexist views. To prove that he’s not sexist, Russo mentioned how much he loved his wife now.
Vince Russo has been infamous in the pro-wrestling world for putting the WCW title on both David Arquette and himself and thereby devaluing the championship belt.
