WrestleMania 32 brought us one of the most exciting women’s matches in recent years. The Triple Threat match between Sasha Banks, Charlotte, and Becky Lynch was arguably one of the best matches on the card and really set the standard very high going forward.
This match demonstrated to us that this division should be taken seriously and that WWE is not merely treating women as objects but as serious competitors.
Whilst WWE has always encouraged competition between women, the division itself has been very inconsistent in terms of the serious attention it has received from the WWE itself.

With all the being said, you cannot deny that the WWE is pushing the women’s division as one of its main draws right now.
Every PPV the women’s matches are moving further and further up the card, which leads us to the question of this article, are we about to see women's matches in the main event of PPVs?
Recent events such as Natalya & Charlotte headlining Monday Night Raw in a contract signing segment, are suggesting that this might be the case going forward.
This is without doubt one of the most exciting parts of WWE programming right now, and if the drop in Raw ratings is anything to go by, WWE seriously needs to change up its format soon, in order to get a push in the ratings.
It is important to mention here that ratings do of course decrease majorly this time of year in comparison with the build up to WrestleMania, however, many spectators and industry experts have claimed that some of these ratings are lower or equal to the drop that WWE suffered in the mid-90s.
With that in mind, a greater focus on pushing the women’s division toward main event status might actually give WWE the ratings push that it needs, especially considering how many brilliant female competitors exist right now, as well as, the quality of wrestling and storylines that have been brewing between them.
One issue, however, which is ironically also affecting the men’s equivalent title, is that of repetitiveness in matches.
In the same way, we have seen variants of ‘The Club’ vs ‘The Bloodline’ in the recent Roman Reigns vs AJ Styles feud, we have also seen the same matches between Charlotte & Natalya.
This is something that WWE needs to change soon if they are to maintain the momentum they have in the women’s division.
