WWE NXT has a female referee named Jessika Carr. She was seen at last night’s NXT TakeOver: Phoenix event officiating the Shayna Baszler vs Bianca Belair match. It sounds like she won’t be alone soon enough.
During WWE Royal Rumble Axxess, Stephanie McMahon took part in a Q&A with the fans. She was asked about having female referees on the main roster and she had a response that seemed very positive toward that idea.
Stephanie McMahon said that the main roster plans to have female referees soon. This is great news for fans of WWE’s Women’s Revolution as they continue to even the playing field.
At this time, Carr is the only female referee seeing any substantial airtime. The WWE Performance Center is full of hopefuls who could fall into that role as well. Jessika Carr started out her career on the indies as a pro wrestler before becoming a referee in NXT so others very well could do the same eventually.
