WWE Divas Champion Charlotte thinks divas deserve and have the capability to be in the main event on the main roster as well as NXT.
Recently, Sasha Banks and Bayley were in the main event at the NXT TakeOver: Respect event in an Iron match for the NXT Women's Championship. It was a fantastic match, which was won by Bayley, and it has received big praise from a lot of people involved in the WWE.
Charlotte, Becky Lynch, Stephanie McMahon and Lita were in attendance for the event and were impressed with what they saw, like the rest of us. The Divas Champion explained why divas deserve more main event opportunities on the main roster.

She said during an appearance on Busted Open Radio, according to Wrestling News: “We have the capability to main-event just like Sasha and Bayley are in NXT this week. They deserve to main event. That will be a match of the year candidate. Sasha and I main evented (Philadelphia), then them main eventing a special, me being Divas Champion up here.
"I don’t know what the future holds, but I know that I have lofty goals and that I just want to open the doors for women as it pertains to main eventing on a bigger scale, the main roster, and what we’ve been able to do at NXT and gain the respect like we did at NXT on the main roster as well."

Some of the divas do have the technical ability to wrestle on the main event stage, but not all of them. Recently the Divas Revolution has been a flop and it has caused a lot of members of the WWE Universe to be disinterested in the storyline.
WWE need to revitalise this interest on the main roster before even considering main eventing divas on Raw, never mind a pay-per-view. It still feels like there is a long way to go before Charlotte's dream becomes a reality.
It will be tough for the WWE not to put their main title, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, outside of the main event at a pay-per-view if a match for it is on the card. They certainly won't be changing the main event picture anytime soon until they sort out their ratings slump, but I feel the divas, at least the NXT divas, do deserve at least one main event slot on either Raw or SmackDown before this time next year.
