Women’s wrestling, in general, has undergone massive growth and developed a lot of depth over the years. Various pro wrestling companies all over the world have embraced how talented women wrestlers can be. Female WWE talent were also frustrated with their booking for a while.

Triple H previously stated that WWE has the best women’s division in the world, which led to a lot of backlash. However, the booking of WWE’s women’s division in the past few months has left much to be desired for fans and pro wrestlers alike.

According to Sean Sapp behind Fightful’s paywall, several female WWE talent were frustrated with their booking this Spring. This included everyone from the top to the bottom of the card. That is why more women have now been featured more often on WWE programming.

We’ve seen more women featured on Smackdown in recent months, something many of women in the company had been pushing for quite a while. Fightful had learned of several female talent that were frustrated with their utilization on the program, from the bottom of the card all the way to the top. However, we’re told that several were waiting to see “where the chips fell,” until they took it to higher ups.


Among those chips falling were the returns of Asuka and Lacey Evans, as well as Charlotte Flair taking time off. With none of them factoring into Smackdown for the foreseeable future at the time, we’re told that creative was able to implement more women into the program on a regular basis starting with the May 13 episode of WWE Smackdown. Since then, we’ve seen more integration of a wider variety of female performers, albeit with varying creative satisfaction.

This is not the first time that there was frustration in WWE due to the current booking of their women’s division. Regardless, the situation seems to be better, so that’s what matters right now.
