Who run the world?
Well, this week it’s the ladies of WWE thankyouverymuch.
On Monday Night Raw, the women main-evented with the first ever Gauntlet match that ended in a Sasha Banks victory.
Just landed in Hong Kong after a 15 hour flight directly after #RAWLA & I'm still on such an amazing high from being apart of the first ever Women's Gauntlet match. It was such an honor to have the opportunity to Main Event Raw while making history. Not to mention that the Raw Women's division absolutely KILLED it! #Grateful
@SashaBanksWWE vs @NiaJaxWWE Best damn performance ever girls should be freaking proud— Madusa/AlundraBlayze (@Madusa_rocks) June 27, 2017
Less than 24 hours later, the women of Smackdown Live took to the ladders again in their second Money in the Bank match and Carmella took home the briefcase.
My prediction is the bar will continue to be raised!!! #GoGetEmLadies !!!!— Beth Copeland (@TheBethPhoenix) June 28, 2017

It became three main events in a row when Asuka and Nikki Cross battled in a violent Last Woman Standing match.
Unbelieveable match. Could've main evented any show or PPV. https://t.co/QfsNU10Jmo— Killian Dain (@KillianDain) June 29, 2017

That match is what it's about. I'm still not sure how to put it under words, maybe that says it all. @NikkiCrossWWE @WWEAsuka— Aleister Black (@WWEAleister) June 29, 2017
adding to that, @NikkiCrossWWE is an inspiration to an entire generation of female competitors that is coming up now.— Aleister Black (@WWEAleister) June 29, 2017
adding to that tweet, our entire roster of female competitors are on a whole different level. I am proud to be along side of you all.— Aleister Black (@WWEAleister) June 29, 2017

WWE acknowledged the historic feat and here’s hoping Sasha Banks and Killian Dain’s exchange comes true:
Let's make this a normal thing https://t.co/OLXR6uo9DM— $asha Banks (@SashaBanksWWE) June 28, 2017
Killian Dain believes it can:
With the level of talent involved it will be! https://t.co/XNc16YSwnq— Killian Dain (@KillianDain) June 28, 2017
So there are words. Now let’s look at numbers, thanks to Kate.

Feels good, doesn’t it?
Hope springs eternal for women’s wrestling fans.
