The Women’s Revolution in WWE started over five years ago and has seen a tremendous change for female Superstars in the company as they have been given a lot of focus. However, nothing everything is perfect and quite a few women don’t get much focus at all.

Mickie James’ recent comments regarding how women’s wrestling is viewed in WWE has certainly become a huge topic of discussion as well.

While speaking on The Bellas Podcast, Carmella criticized WWE for not focusing on female WWE Superstars, explaining why it’s “not okay” for there to be only a couple of female Superstars and only one major storyline featuring women despite WWE RAW being three hours long.

“Even, myself, I would sit at home and watch RAW and it would be 10 PM before I would see a woman on the show,” said Carmella. “It’s like, ‘this is a three-hour show. What the hell?’ Even if I’m just a fan, which I am. Like if I didn’t work at WWE and I was just sitting at home watching, I want to see the women. That’s why I tune in. If I’m waiting until 10pm to see a girl, it’s like, ‘what the hell?’ That’s not okay for little girls at home or whoever is watching waiting for the women. It just feels like oh, now, there’s only a focus on maybe two women or one women’s storyline.”

Carmella hasn’t been seen on WWE television frequently, with her last appearance being on night one of WrestleMania 37. There, she teamed up with Billie Kay and competed in the Tag Team Turmoil match. We will have to see if the company will give more focus to other female WWE Superstars eventually.
