5 milestones WWE's women can strive for next
Will 2018 see the first-ever women's Royal Rumble match?
After years of being misused on the main roster, WWE’s women are now among some of the most popular characters on Raw and SmackDown Live.
Ever since the #GiveDivasAChance hashtag trended in February 2015, WWE has afforded their female performers more chances, more storylines and more special match types that they weren’t involved in previously.
We’ve seen Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair compete in Hell In A Cell and Ironman matches and Carmella and Nikki Bella competing in a No DQ match. Alexa Bliss and Becky Lynch also battled in Tables and Steel Cage matches, and 2017 saw the first-ever women’s Money In The Bank ladder match.
So, after two history-making years of women’s wrestling, what’s the next logical step in the Women’s Revolution? In this article, we look at five milestones WWE and their female Superstars can strive for next.
#1 Elimination Chamber match
An Elimination Chamber PPV has not yet been announced for 2018 but, assuming there is one, it would be the next natural progression in the Women’s Revolution for them to compete inside the steel structure.
After all, we’ve seen too many multiple-woman elimination matches to count on Raw and SmackDown Live over the last 18 months, so why not make it more exciting by having them eliminate one another in the first-ever women's Chamber match?
Providing the PPV takes place a month before WrestleMania next year, as it has done in six of the last eight years, perhaps the storyline could tie in with what happens in a potential Royal Rumble match.
Maybe the winner of the Rumble could choose to face whoever comes out of the Elimination Chamber as champion, setting up a WrestleMania 34 meeting between two women who had already made history in the first few months of 2018.
It will be amazing to watch the women compete in this gigantic structure which was created 15 years ago when we got to see the first ever Elimination Chamber match in 2002.
