Stephanie McMahon has spoken on the future of the women’s wrestling scene in light of the fact that International Women’s Day was upon us. And in that conversation, Stephanie has used herself as a prime example for other women to follow.
Stephanie McMahon Is On A Mission To Change Women’s Wrestling For The Better
In an interview with Indian Express Indulge, Stephanie revealed how there is nothing to stop you doing something, as long as you put your mind to it. She said: “I have had many opportunities in my life, I have also had [a]lot of challenges because of my gender. This shouldn’t be a barrier to anything you want to accomplish. I have three daughters; I am fighting for them and for women all over the world.”
And in that battle to expand women’s wrestling, Stephanie has praised WWE for the efforts that they have made. She credited the writers and their focus on strength as a way to showcase pure skills, where in the past, female wrestling may have been accused of focusing more on the glamour side. Today, though, that is anything but the case.
She added: “WWE continues with the women’s evolution that started a long time ago, but it became a part of the movement in 2015. We also unveiled new championships. Our women who were showcased in the main event at WrestleMania 35 – Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch – broke the entertainment revenue record at the MetLife stadium.”
The records have been helped by the fact that WWE continues to push the boundaries. There has been a mass focus on finding talent from across the globe, which falls in line with the company’s focus on diversity. And by the sounds of it, Stephanie has many things in the pipeline.
She continued: “During pre-Covid days, we were doing trials all over the world. We are always looking for the best – both men and women. Right now, we have women from 14 different countries, and we are really proud about that.”
It is good to see the women’s division doing so well, and in Stephanie, they certainly have someone who has seen it all. And with the future continuing to look bright, we wait to see who will be the next breakthrough star.
