WWE Hall-of-Famer Alundra Blayze has spoken out on the promotion's decision to feature scantily-clad female dancers during last week's RAW Underground debut, questioning the decision to bring back "half-naked women in the same breath of promoting the evolution and equality of women."
Here's what Blayze posted to Twitter on Monday:-
Alundra was backed up by former WWE wrestler and producer Lance Storm, who tweeted the following, claiming he'd "pop huge" if the Underground's second offering had Chip and Dale dancers to compensate:-
Last night's second "episode" of RAW Underground featured no dancers whatsoever, male or female. It was reported last week that WWE caught several weeks' worth of footage for the new Shane McMahon-helmed venture, which highlighted the likes of Shayna Baszler, the returning Riddick Moss, and newcomer Dabba-Kato on yesterday's show.
Storm had been working behind the scenes at WWE until the company's Black Wednesday cuts saw him furloughed from his role as a producer. The Canadian has since severed ties with the promotion. Blayze, meanwhile, has occasionally featured as a returning legend since being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2015, but showed up in AEW as part of last week's Women's Tag Team Cup Tournament show.
