The WWE Divas Revolution is in full flight with the ladies of the company finally getting themselves more than one five-minute match per night.

Divas Revolution

With the likes of the United States women's soccer team winning the World Cup and Ronda Rousey dominating in UFC to become one of the biggest fighters in the World, the WWE saw the chance to finally make a real change in their Diva's division.

But this doesn't make up for how bad things were in the beginning, which current NXT Champion Sasha Banks revealed all about in a recent interview.

Sexist Training Methods

Banks appeared on the latest edition of Chris Jericho's podcast 'Talk is Jericho', where she revealed just how sexist the WWE's old training methods for Divas were.

“When I first got here (WWE) we were told not to work like the men. To not throw punches, kicks, elbows, forearms, strikes," Banks started off as saying to Jericho.

"To work the Divas way. We were so confused as to what that meant. Like pulling hair and stuff? When Sara Del Rey was brought in, she trained us differently, it was not like the Divas. We were trained like the men.“

Typical Vince McMahon

This is the typical Vince McMahon way of thinking. After years of employing models instead of women with actual wrestling ability, the WWE Diva's division had devolved into nothing more than hair pulling and scratching. 

It also goes along with the Vince way of thinking that the Divas division doesn't have the traditional faces or heels, it's just a bunch of catty women who all hate each other, try to steal each other's men and back stab mercilessly.

Thank God it's finally changed and we're getting some decent matches for once.
