Stephanie McMahon is very proud of WWE’s Women’s Division. She has been an advocate for the women of WWE and got to witness WrestleMania 35’s all-female main event with pride.
While speaking to WWE The Bump, Stephanie McMahon discussed how big of a deal it was for women to main even WrestleMania. She also revealed a discussion she had with the women in the main event before they performed at the show of shows.
“Thank you to every single woman who has ever stepped foot in what we call the squared circle,” McMahon graciously mentioned. “From any independent promotion, from anywhere, ever since the beginning of wrestling in the world. A huge thanks also goes to, of course, the way that we started training and recruiting our women, and that, of course, is my husband, Triple H, for hiring the first-ever female coach at the Performance Center. All the changes really started there. Then, you go to our fans, who really made the movement happen in the WWE with the #GiveDivasAChance.”
“Being a mom of three girls, and having them grow up in this business, I actually said to Becky Lynch, Ronda Rousey, and Charlotte Flair before their match at WrestleMania 35, I called them over and I thanked them because my three girls would be sitting in the front row later that night, watching our women as the main event, simply because that’s the way it is.”
“It wasn’t a match buried in the middle of the card. It wasn’t the same portrayal that I grew up with when I was younger. These women are being featured in the main event because they are the biggest stars, with the biggest storyline, and they were right where they deserved to be. Anybody can be anything they want to be. It’s so important, especially for girls and women to know that they can do anything they want to do, but they have to work hard and believe in themselves.”
We’ll have to see when women main event another WrestleMania event. Stephanie McMahon’s pride for how far the WWE Women’s Division probably won’t diminish much at all when it does happen.
