Chief Brand Ambassador of WWE, Stephanie McMahon is one of the leading pioneers of The Modern Era.

During a recent sit-down interview with Variety at CES 2019, Stephanie revealed what caused WWE to bring about the stellar change in its women’s division while discussing a wide range of topics.

“The way we portrayed our women [historically] was in a secondary role. It was never believed that women could be the main event or the draw. What happened was that in our developmental system, [Triple H] started recruiting athletes over models for both men and women. He started training women the same way the men were trained and giving them the same match time, and opportunities on television.”

“As a result, they started to rise and truly steal the show. It was to the point where our fanbase was chanting “This is wrestling,” and “Women’s wrestling.” That was really the impetus of what happened then.”

McMahon herself has been an integral part of the Women’s Revolution in WWE. Mrs. Game has been involved in numerous storylines with female Superstars over the years, the most recent one being her feud with Ronda Rousey.

Although Stephanie’s feud with Ronda is yet to go in full swing, both women have already proved that their rivalry can tear the house apart.

WWE also held the first all-women pay-per-view in 2018, Evolution that turned out to be a massive success and has reportedly led Vince McMahon to consider making it an annual event.

In the future, WWE may even consider Evolution as one of its “Big 5” PPVs after adding the female-exclusive show to the “Big 4” list.

“WWE Evolution trended number one worldwide for over two hours during the last game of the World Series and during Sunday Night Football. That’s because of our fanbase and our women killing it. We’re not giving them opportunities because they’re women, it’s giving them an opportunity because they’re the best and deserve this spot.”
