The WWE Women’s Division has been a focal point of recent criticism after some top female superstars were left off the SummerSlam card. One of the top WWE stars, Rhea Ripley, expressed her agreement with the frustration voiced by fans on social media.

On the July 31 edition of WWE RAW, Becky Lynch and Trish Stratus had a rematch with the bout ending in a disqualification due to interference from Zoey Stark. This led to the announcement of a rematch between Lynch and Stratus on the August 14 episode of RAW, contradicting previous reports that the two were originally set to face off at WWE SummerSlam.

Similarly, another rumored SummerSlam match between WWE Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley and Raquel Rodriguez failed to materialize, despite a heated brawl on the go-home RAW episode.

In response to the mounting criticism, a Twitter user named “Rheas bicep” posted screenshots of tweets expressing frustration over the absence of these women from the SummerSlam card. The caption of the post read: “treat your women better. simple.”


Notably, Rhea Ripley herself liked this post, indicating her agreement with the sentiment. The WWE Women’s Division has been making significant strides in recent years, with female superstars showcasing their exceptional skills and abilities. However, some fans believe that more can be done to prioritize women’s matches and storylines in major pay-per-view events like SummerSlam.

Despite the absence of certain matches, there will still be representation of women on the SummerSlam card. Asuka is set to defend her WWE Women’s Championship in a triple threat match against Charlotte Flair and Bianca Belair, while Ronda Rousey is scheduled to face Shayna Baszler in an MMA Rules match.

As the event approaches, the WWE continues to face criticism from fans who are advocating for better treatment and representation of women’s matches in major pay-per-view events like SummerSlam.

How do you feel about the representation of the WWE Women’s Division in major pay-per-view events like SummerSlam? Do you think there should be more focus on women’s matches and storylines? Leave a comment.
