There is a women's revolution currently under way in WWE. In fact there is probably not much point in calling it that any more. Female Superstars getting the opportunities they do and warranting higher places on the card is just the norm in the company now. The first ever women's Royal Rumble closing the show last weekend wasn't a surprise, it was almost expected.
That Royal Rumble match is just the latest of a whole string of firsts for WWE's women. For years the female Superstars in the company had to settle for bra and panties matches or being thrown in to paddling pools filled with chocolate pudding. Thankfully some of the women who tried to change that in the past had the opportunity to compete in last week's Royal Rumble along with the current stars.
There are a lot of places and people you can point out for being responsible for the revolution such as wrestlers like Sasha Banks and Paige. Performers outside of WWE such as Ronda Rousey and The Williams sisters. Chief Brand Officer of WWE Stephanie McMahon believes that her husband Triple H deserves a lot of the credit though, and she probably has a point.
In a recent interview with The Times Of India McMahon explained why The Game is responsible for bringing the women's revolution to WWE. 'Paul Levesque (Triple H) started recruiting elite athletes from all over the world, both male and female and he started training them the same way as men', McMahon explained. From there women began to get the same opportunities as men in WWE and the fans were fully behind them.
The pieces of the puzzle had to be there of course for Triple H to be able to put them into place. If the female talent wasn't out there then The Game wouldn't have been able to find them and bring them to WWE in order to hone their craft and spark a revolution. We're thankful that he did though and the work is not over yet. Next on the agenda for the women of WWE, their first ever Elimination Chamber.
