Women Wrestling

In The Beginning

Women's Wrestling has come a long way since the days that have long passed the industry in year. Women Wrestling has undergone an evolution. There is not better example than the WWE itself. Some of the women who occupied Women's Wrestling included the likes of The Fabulous Moolah and Judy Grable. They belonged to the era of professional wrestling that treated athleticism over spectacle. These women were brash and unresolved in their adherence to technical wrestling than to the high-flyers that would come much later.

WWE and Beyond

With the advent of WWE WrestleMania and WWE becoming a wrestling powerhouse across America, Women in Wrestling took a slightly different turn. People like Miss. Elizabeth and Sensational Sherri who were more valets than wrestlers took centre stage.

In the early 1990s, women wrestling took centrestage again with a new generation of WWE women wrestlers. This included the likes of Alundra Blayze, Madusa Miceli, Luna Vachaon and Bertha Faye. While women were actually wrestling and taking bumps in the ring, they would not centre stage till the attitude era.

This is where the WWE Divas reigned supreme. Sunny, Sable, Chyna, Trish Stratus and Lita took centre stage in this era. While they were oversexualized and some graced the cover of Playboy magazine. Chyna was an exception due to her masculine appearance and an ability to go toe-to-toe with the men. While not ideal, it was an a true spotlight to Women's Wrestling.

Fast-forward to 2018 and WWE Evolution is the first Women's all women wrestling Pay per view. Women in Wrestling are main-eventing major PPVs, having better matches than the men and just being celebrated as characters as opposed to sex objects. WWE Women Wrestlers like Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Bailey, Ronda Rousey, Becky Lynch exemplify all that is good about women in wrestling.
