WWE is currently celebrating “Women’s Evolution Week”, which comes amidst rumors that a sequel to the 2018 women-only Evolution pay-per-view might be on the way.
Triple H took to Twitter to offer his thoughts on just how proud he is to see the state of women’s wrestling in WWE today:
Cannot overstate how proud I am to see the growth in the #WWERaw, #Smackdown, and #WWENXT Women’s divisions. It took legends, hall of famers, and women from every generation to get where it is today. Excited to watch you all inspire the next generation. #WomensEvolution pic.twitter.com/YpGa99IRfg— Triple H (@TripleH) July 14, 2020
There is no doubt that Triple H has accumulated plenty of faults throughout his career, but the rise of women’s wrestling in WWE over the last five years is one area where he has had a hugely positive influence. Women’s wrestling has been a crucial component of his NXT brand during that time. It laid the foundation for fantastic wrestlers like Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, Asuka, Alexa Bliss, Charlotte Flair, and Bayley to become big stars on Raw and SmackDown, and even main event WrestleMania 35.
Last week’s embarrassing karaoke segment on SmackDown is a reminder that more work still needs to be done, but it is quite remarkable just how much progress has been made in five years.
With WWE also announcing that Stephanie McMahon, Charlotte Flair, and Beth Phoenix will be guests on an extra long episode of The Bump this week, many fans are hopeful we’ll be hearing about another Evolution pay-per-view very soon.
What do you think the next step is for women’s wrestling in WWE?
