Women's wrestling really has never been this good, especially in WWE. The current crop of female wrestlers under contract with the company are some of the most talented women to ever step foot inside a WWE ring.

It's hard to pinpoint where the revolution started exactly. Was it NXT, with the likes of Paige, Emma, Charlotte and Natalya? Maybe when Stephanie McMahon introduced the likes of Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch to the main roster? Or does Nikki Bella have a point when she claims that Total Divas got the ball rolling?

In all fairness, it's likely a combination of all the above and more. What's often forgotten is that there are many women who came before who laid the groundwork for today's females. Here are five women that revolutionised women's wrestling before anybody ever spoke of a women's revolution.

#5 Alundra Blayze

Alundra Blayze, Madusa, Debrah Miceli. However, you know her, she is most certainly one woman who would not be out of place on today's women's roster. Throughout the late '80s and '90s she blazed a trail for women in the wrestling industry, pun very much intended.

Blayze would ply her trade in both WWE and WCW but unfortunately, it's an incident that happened during the transition between those two companies that often overshadows her other accomplishments. That incident was when she threw the WWE Women's Championship in the bin live on WCW television.

That unfortunate event happened over 20 years ago now and WWE have gone out of their way to prove that it's water under the bridge. Not only has Blayze since been inducted into the Hall of Fame, but she plays an active role in helping the women of WWE to this day.
