WWE has set the bar for a Women’s Revolution in wrestling. After fans went to social media advocating for more airtime for the girls, the company decided to grant their wishes. It started with the debuts of NXT favorites Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, and Bayley. Since then the Four Horsewomen along with the rest of the female division has made their mark on women’s wrestling.

We’ve seen them compete in matches such as Hell In a Cell, Money In the Bank, Falls Count Anywhere, and Last Man Standing. With the current roster of women wrestlers plus the historical matches, it’s no surprise that the Women’s Revolution continues to thrive in WWE.

The company has been applauded in its effort to bring more focus on the female wrestlers. They’ve accomplished so much that many are wondering how they can top themselves. Well, if rumors are true, the company is considering adding women’s Tag Team titles to their roster.

WWE's women's history

As the top wrestling company in the industry, WWE has been a pioneer for women’s wrestling. Since the 1980s, wrestlers such as The Fabulous Moolah, Wendy Richter, and Alundra Blayze set in motion the start of women’s wrestling. These three women were some of the popular wrestlers of that era and served as inspiration for generations to come.

The popularity of female wrestling continued well into the 1990s and early 2000s, an era that’s considered the Golden Era of WWE women’s division.

Every week, fans tuned in to see Trish Stratus, Lita, Molly Holly, Victoria, Torrie Wilson, and Sable compete for the coveted Women’s championship. The girls were a hit with fans not only because of their wrestling skills, but also their beauty and personality. Throughout the Golden Era, these ladies made history by main evening Monday Night RAW and competing in street fights.

Following the departure of these wrestlers, the WWE’s female division took a cooling off period. The Divas Era is considered by many fans to be one of the worst times in women’s wrestling. The era did produce popular SuperStars such as Beth Phoenix, Melina, Mickie James, Michelle McCool, and Kelly Kelly. Despite the popularity of these wrestlers, they never got a chance to showcase their athletic ability.

The Superstars hardly got any airtime and when they did, their matches only last around three minutes.

Fed up with the treatment of the female wrestlers, fans voiced their displeasure on social media. This led to the new Women’s Revolution, which began in 2015 and is still on fire today. The addition of the new SuperStars along with headlining PPVs has caused fans to become interested wrestling again. Much like the SuperStars before them, Charlotte Flair, Bayley, Naomi, Natalya, and The Bella Twins are becoming an inspiration to girls everywhere.

Women's revolution continues

With the Revolution at its peak, the next step could be the introduction of a women’s tag team division. During a recent interview at a Paris convention, former WWE wrestler Lita mentioned that the WWE wanted to bring in women’s tag team championship.

If this is true, this would be a huge turning point in the Revolution.

The tag team titles have mostly been associated with the men’s division. The only titles the female division has are the RAW and Smackdown Women’s championships. The introduction of the tag titles would be a major milestone for the wrestlers, who are making strides in WWE.
