Where does Natalya rank among some of the best female wrestlers in comparison to their male counterparts?

Women's wrestling has made enormous strides over the course of the past few years, and with the recent Mae Young Classic, women's wrestling took another step forward in helping to elevate talent and create names soon to be known all around the world.

While Kairi Sane walked away as the winner of this inaugural women's tournament, a number of standouts brought their names to the forefront when it comes to professional wrestling and sports entertainment.

Even as the likes of Toni Storm, Piper Niven, and Candice LeRae turned heads during the tournament, there already exists in WWE, a contingent of women that are so good that they exceed what most of their male counterparts do in the ring. Their speed, technical skill, and risk-taking have elevated their popularity with fans to the level of their male counterparts.

Who are they and which ones stand above the guys? Here are five female Superstars who are better than most of the male Superstars.


#5. Becky Lynch

Becky Lynch continues to deliver great matches. Can her male counterparts make the same claim?

The inaugural WWE Smackdown Live Women's champion stands above many of her male counterparts when it comes to ability inside the ring. Lynch may not have been well-known among fans when she joined NXT, but no one can deny what she has become.

Her competitive matches against Sasha Banks in NXT and her ascent to the top of the women's division on Smackdown demonstrate that she has elevated herself in a way most of her male counterparts would love to do.

If anything can be assured when it comes to Lynch, it is that her admirable work ethic has made her a crucial cog in the development of the other women on the roster. Much like Natalya, her role is that of someone who can be counted on to not only have a great match but tell a great story as well. Her feuds with the aforementioned Natalya, as well as Alexa Bliss, suggest that she is more than worthy of consistently competing for the championship.
