WWE News: Stephanie McMahon talks about women main-eventing Wrestlemania, bringing Ronda Rousey to WWE
Stephanie speaks about Ronda Rousey and the future of WWE's women.
Sasha Banks and Charlotte created history at Hell In A Cell 2016 when they not only became the first women to ever compete in a Hell In A Cell match but also the first two women to main-event a WWE pay-per-view. The duo put on quite a show for the fans and it was a worthy main-event.
On the heels of this historic night, Stephanie McMahon recently spoke to TMZ Sports about the possibility of women Superstars someday main-eventing Wrestlemania.
Stephanie also discussed the possibility of signing Ronda Rousey to the WWE in the future after her recent announcement that her fight at UFC 207 would be one of her last. Stephanie also hinted at wanting revenge for the arm bar Rousey put her in at Wrestlemania 31.
Rousey is one of the biggest stars that UFC have and is a transcendental figure who has already started moving into film work. She’s also a lifelong WWE fan and had previously spoken about someday working with WWE. Stephanie didn’t say anything specific when asked about signing Rousey but just replied that WWE would definitely try. When asked about women main-eventing Wrestlemania someday, she said:
“That would be the goal, to have the women main-event at WrestleMania at some point in time whether that's five years from now, 10 years from now”
With the era of women’s wrestling well and truly on its way, signing Ronda Rousey and adding it to the most talented women’s division in the history of pro wrestling could mean big business. Rousey would definitely help the women of WWE to break through the next glass ceiling.
