WWE reportedly discussing an all-women event for the fall

Stephanie McMahon on Twitter

WWE caught a considerable amount of flak from fans and mainstream media for their female Superstars being unable to work Greatest Royal Rumble due to Saudi law and custom.

According to Pro Wrestling Sheet, they have a plan to make it up to their women’s roster - by holding a pay-per-view (PPV) or WWE Network special which will exclusively feature them. While he specifies plans aren’t “set in stone just yet”, Ryan Satin’s sources tell him a women-only show is “seriously being discussed” for “late September or early October”.

The timing would lend more credence to the idea. Holding the finals of this year’s Mae Young Classic on this kind of event would be an option (although slightly later on the calendar than last year’s), and could be a place to showcase the Sasha Banks/Bayley feud or begin building the Four Horsewomen rivalry again. WWE also recently juggled their fall PPV schedule to avoid two Oct. events... but maybe also to squeeze in this one.

Also not confirmed by Sheet’s scoop is whether this would be limited to current main roster stars, or if legends, NXT or even indie wrestlers might be brought in. There’s a lot to be figured out, but as we saw with Greatest Royal Rumble, WWE can pull these things off remarkably quickly.
