WWE appears to have been dominated by women in recent years as the pro wrestling landscape has changed. Stephanie McMahon, the chairwoman, and co-CEO of WWE commented on the company’s female presence in Saudi Arabia last weekend on Twitter. She regarded it as another page in the history books for the women of WWE.
