In recent years, in the rings of the McMahon-owned company, a real revolution has been born for the women of the federation, with the term Women’s Revolution that has literally revolutionized what WWE Universe fans were used to when they went to attend a match between two or more women.
Until a few years ago, WWE called its women, Diva and not Superstar or wrestler like all other male colleagues, drawing a fairly deep line of distinction, between men and women, with the female part of the roster being in fact relegated to a very small part of the cards of the WWE shows and which obviously had never had important main events of any show of the federation, let alone the paid ppvs.
Over the past 4-5 years, this trend has changed dramatically, with WWE women ceasing to be called Divas, but becoming full-fledged WWE Superstars like men and with the top parts of the cards being you become a fairly well-known place for them too, despite the fact that the consideration of money, for women’s contracts, is still very different from the great male Superstars.
Trish Stratus went on to praise Sasha Banks, noting everything she’s done for women’s wrestling in WWE. She closed with a tease that if she steps into the ring again, she’d love to wrestle Banks. “I think she is a fantastic athlete,” Trish Stratus continued.
“She has brought so much to the company and elevated the women in the industry from what she’s done. I think fans would love to see that. I would love to whoop her b*tt and prove how I’m the best and stuff like that.
So yeah, let’s leave it with that little button and say, perhaps, one day, if I decide to go back in the ring, I might have to deliver a little Stratusfaction to The Boss.”
Sasha Banks on her WWE experience
In her latest interview with the microphones of the Kurt Angle Show, former Smackdown champion Sasha Banks wanted to tell him what the WWE executives told her when she was hired, namely that she should have been a Diva and not a wrestler: “It was really tough.
When they still weren’t used to training women like men. We were trained to do Divas and were given no explanation as to what she meant and why. They would come out and just say, ‘Hey, don’t hit, don’t do this anymore.’
And we were like, ‘Okay, but we have to fight. We have to do it.’ But we trained every single day and plus there were live events, plus in-ring training and moving from one city to another and posing for posters, so that people would be enticed to come to the shows.
It was a constant sacrifice, every day. I think maybe only Sunday was free and it wasn’t really even a true day off, because you had to rest your mind for what would happen the next day.”
