Although WWE has made great strides in pushing women on its programming, including Hell in a Cell and Iron Man matches in recent months, there’s still a ways to go before they’re on equal footing with the men. That’s not to say they’re worse (or better), just that WWE simply gives more time to its male talent.

Consider the size of the roster of men relative to women. It’s such that when asked by the Montgomery Advertiser’s Piledriver podcast if there should be a Royal Rumble for women, Bayley said no:

"I kind of honestly think we need a few more girls to do something like that because the guys have 30 men. We don't have many girls. Even if it was Raw and SmackDown combined, I don't think it would make it 20. If we had more girls brought in, maybe like NXT girls, that would be really cool and I think it would be a lot of fun."

The good news is WWE is adding new talent all the time — such as welcoming the likes of Heidi Lovelace and Kimber Lee, among others, just recently — and we can’t be that far off from a women’s Royal Rumble.

If you, the fan, want it.

Do you?
