Mechanically, this is a huge myth. Core Monks do not have the breadth of stats to invest well in Wisdom, almost always traded away Still Mind with archetypes, and didn't have the feats to spend on Iron Will. Unchained Monks have less stat pressure and can afford better WIS, have extra feats for Iron Will, and do not need to trade away Still Mind to be viable.
In terms of flavor, it's silly to even consider it. What's more flavorful, a 10th level Monk with 12 WIS and a passable Will save just because he is a Monk... or a 10th level Monk that would normally have a poor Will save, but due to his own Wisdom, his training through feats and use of his class skills has achieved to steel his own mind? Both work, and neither is better than the other.
If you are playing a monk with only 12 Wisdom, you are doing it wrong.
