This happened because back in those days, only a single leg drop or a power slam would get a wrestler over with the crowd. Fast forward to 2021, the wrestlers (male and female) have to be agile with having some jaw-dropping move sets to awe the WWE Universe.

Vince McMahon has set a new bar for talent

Meltzer confessed that the latest mass firing of WWE is also because of the “age factor” and WWE knows that most of their talents are over 30.

“The new directives on hiring new women is the recommendations are 25 or younger.” Meltzer noted. This kind of thing is not new because Vince recently revamped the entire structure of NXT.
