Thinking about it and like that sounds cheesy but like legit thinking about that moment of he in leaks he In that hug that they shared in the ring to the hug that they shared with the woman that was at bring sites having gone already Arabia myself and seeing The reception that women that women. It's incredible and that's it's just so groundbreaking. I don't think anyone thought That that match would ever happen to for naughty unless you to be able to go in and Filled that role and it just the way that the crowd reacted having women in the crowd there and to be a of a physical change. People can actually see the tangible thing for the women in Saudi Arabia. As much as they're changing times over there but to see women In such a powerful. or they're crazy. I mean it was just such a such an important moment I I can think I can. I get that image of my head so perfectly here. Even thinking of a few is so great and I think it's not easy to get that spot. She's so uh-huh deserving to be somebody who can be a change over there and to to you know. Get a little bit more credit. I really don't get enough credit for the women's evolution thing with Beth Phoenix a truly truly incredible journey for the women this last decade our very own Tommy Dreamer what he feels. The women's evolution is all about. We were there when the women were the as we say the bathroom break match and that was just the spot they were they were actually putting the spot to quiet. The crowd down for the main event event which is a horrible spot to be to be in but the women went out there and still worked their butts off and earned earned the respect of the locker room fast forward now where their main eventing Wrestlemainia this woman's movement it it was. Hey these girls or women are just as good as the guys and we need to be spotlighted. That and there was a little crack in the adore. Were they instead of putting their foot there. They kicked the door down. Trish stratus was the total package during the attitude era and was one of the first in the company to approve. Women should be taken seriously in the ring. She appeared on busted open prior to her retirement match at Summer Slam Two Thousand Nineteen First Charlotte flair there and spoke about the progression of the women since the attitude era.

These things come out because you're tired go away but then then in the meantime there's new girls that are being undeveloped and coming up another generation coming up and then at that point in the spotlight and they're telling you how they how they got there was to get there at this point years later later hearing about it so I think for the first time I went back there and just I'm so happy that my work different impact and influence people in the positive way. Because I really hope you're because while using it you really try to make the day takes so it's It's humbling and it's really it's gotta find and And it's special got it now.
