Michael Cole was announced as part of the commentary team at Evolution and (like usual) a portion of people were angry about it on the internet — leading Renee Young to defend the decision.
For those who missed the announcement … the commentary team at this weekend’s all women’s event will be Cole, Young and Beth Phoenix. Plus, Paige will be on the pre-show panel and Lilian Garcia will return to assist with ring announcing.
Fans were quick to point out on social media that Michael Cole is, in fact, not a woman and on Wednesday morning Renee Young responded.
“Yeah, just because it’s an all women’s PPV doesn’t mean we’re banning the men,” she tweeted. “We’re all celebrating the women’s achievements. And there have been men that have been a big help in the achievements that all of the women have made too. It’s a team effort. Equality = everyone.”
There ya have it folks, now maybe simmer down.
