Former WWE Star reveals Vince McMahon’s reaction to her unusual request to stop wearing makeup during her time with the promotion.
In the world of wrestling, your look is almost as important as your skillset. A lot of attention is paid to one’s appearance. This is seen even more in the women’s division with remnants of the mindset from the 90’s and 00’s still prevalant among many fans.
While not as often as before, most female wrestlers in the WWE still prefer to look glamorous, playing up to their femininity to stand out. That however, is not true for everyone seeing as how Sarah Logan approached Vince McMahon to allow her to go makeup-free on television.
Former WWE Star Sarah Logan reveals Vince McMahon’s reaction to her request to stop wearing makeup
Sarah Logan, who was part of the The Riott Squad with Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott, revealed on Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions podcast that she was uncomfortable with wearing the traditional makeup WWE asked all of their superstars to wear while on camera.
She went to Vince McMahon herself and the WWE Chairman was very positive of her choice.
“Actually, he (Vince McMahon) was very cool about it to me. I don’t know what was said elsewhere. This kind of makeup is fine with me, just my eyes or something, but the WWE makeup, I would watch my matches back and I was like, ‘That doesn’t look like me’, and that bothered me.
“I don’t know if I should have gotten over it or whatever. But it bothered me personally. I was talking about it and someone was like, ‘Go tell him.’
“I was like, ‘Vince, I don’t like wearing makeup. It makes my eyes hurt. I don’t think I need it. I don’t want to wear it.’
“He said, ‘I think your face is pretty expressive enough not to wear makeup.’
I said, ‘I do too.’
He said, ‘Alright.’
I was like, ‘Ok, thank you’, and I left.
“I stopped wearing it and I felt better about myself. Being feminine has always been super hard for me. I grew up with four brothers, and it just never was a thing. I never knew what my feminine side was, I only knew what my tomboy, dude side was.”
