From her interview with The Mirror, when asked what’s next for women in WWE:
“For the women of WWE, it's to continue this evolution. You know I think that we've come a long way, they have been regularly featured and competing in main events at pay-per-views and on television, but I think there's still a long way to go. Ultimately, I would love to see our women main event WrestleMania.”
It’s easy to say that in an interview without ever doing anything to follow through on it later — because, let’s be real, no one is going to save this and confront her with it in a few years if it hasn’t come to pass — but WWE absolutely deserves credit for gradually doing more with the women on its roster. The talent is as deep as it has ever been and it’s only going to get better now that they’re running a tournament with new women from all over the world.
The prospect of a women’s match as the main event of WrestleMania still feels far off but the landscape of the industry changed drastically with the advent and relative success of the WWE Network. Plus, the event itself sells on name alone, with tickets sold out long before a single match is even booked on the card.
Why not headline with, say, Bayley vs. Sasha Banks? They’ve proven they can tear the house down in the main event on smaller shows, perhaps it’s time they get the chance to do the same on the “Grandest Stage of Them All.”
Would you be on board?
