Last week, Michael Cole promoted season 2 of Barmageddon during Monday Night RAW. The game show airs on USA Network. WWE Hall of Famer Nikki Garcia presents Barmageddon. However, Cole didn’t mention her name. Instead, Cole mentioned one of the producers of the show, Blake Shelton.
Nikki Garcia recently appeared on NBC Chicago, where she was asked about WWE ignoring her involvement in the Barmageddon. Nikki said that WWE treats women differently than men. The former women’s champion further said that the company wants to ban women who are outspoken.
“It’s… you know it’s sad. There’s obviously a lot of things I could say about that. I think more than anything, it’s disappointing. I worked there for 16 years, and I helped pave the way for them. And not only that, [but] they’ve always been family to me. No matter what, walking away, for me, it wasn’t malicious. I’m at a point in my life [where] I wanted to do things without hearing the word ‘no’ and it was just strictly business. And maybe there were some personal things that happened over the years that also pushed me toward that, but I think more than anything, it’s disappointing because I don’t see it happening with the men. For some reason with the women who are outspoken, and we’ve seen this with the women in the past, they just want to ban us. I think it’s sad because we all look at it as family, and so, okay, they don’t want to say my name. That’s fine, but hey… Barmageddon got a shout-out. So, to Blake Shelton’s. So that makes me happy.”
