For approximately two years, The Authority have had a big say in how things are run in the WWE.
The biggest impact they made was handpicking Seth Rollins as the future of the WWE, where he turned on The Shield in the process.
THE DIVAS REVOLUTION
The Authority aren’t well liked amongst the WWE Universe, but it’s clear that they’ve done a fantastic job of playing the biggest heels in the company. We are meant to despise them.

Whilst The Authority have been a big talking point for years, another big talking point which has been popular for the last few months or so has been the so-called Diva’s revolution.
Granted, the revolution hasn’t lived up to the hype as the booking hasn’t been great. However, there are a number of ways in which The Authority could help the female roster and vice versa.
The one mistake the WWE have made is that too many women have been thrown into the same feud, where some of them simply haven’t lived up to expectation.
Now it seems as if all of the hype is dying down, so what do the WWE do next to capitalise on the success some of the women have had?
Parallel to this, it just seems like The Authority are slowly running out of steam. Especially now that it’s blatantly clear that we’re headed towards a Rollins vs. Triple H clash in the coming months.
The Authority played a fantastic heel move by having Rollins turn on The Shield, and the risk paid off as he’s now the WWE World Heavyweight and United States Champion.
It’s worked well for him, and The Authority could actually do the same for one lucky female.
Much like they handpicked Rollins, The Authority should handpick one Diva who will showcase that she is simply better than everyone else in the division.
At one stage it was attempted, when Nikki Bella turned heel and seemingly aligned herself with Stephanie McMahon in her feud with Brie Bella.
If that was their attempt, it definitely backfired.
The WWE can approach this in the same way they did with Rollins, as they have certain teams lined up perfectly for this to take place.
One criticism the WWE Universe have had of the revolution is that Stephanie McMahon has been forced down our throats.
You don’t start a revolution by announcing a revolution which you're not a part of.
Plus, she tends to highlight the success of the US women’s national soccer team as well as Ronda Rousey of the UFC; and that’s about it.
If she wants to play a part in reinvigorating the division, she should be able to handpick her own female to bring in to The Authority. Similar to what Triple H did with Rollins.
The Shield were a much-loved team by the WWE Universe, and there are women who are loved by the WWE Universe even though the revolution isn’t going down the way it was supposed to.
There are already three women who could easily slot into The Authority, and instantly become the biggest heel in the division.
Charlotte simply has to turn heel sooner rather than later. She’s a strong face, however she has displayed incredible heel traits down on NXT and they’re too valuable to go to waste on the main roster.
She has a great look and build for someone who can persevere as part of The Authority; turning on Team PCB to catapult herself into the main event picture would be huge.
Especially if she can dethrone Nikki Bella at Night of Champions.
Another ‘surprise’ would be to see Becky Lynch be the one that turns heel. She did it before on NXT, she can definitely do it again.
Although she probably doesn’t have the right ‘look’ to fit properly within The Authority, she could definitely add a lot to the division as a heel which in turn will help her go over more than she already is.
Or even the boss, Sasha Banks. Banks is probably a stronger candidate than Lynch as she’s a natural heel.
If anything, she’s simply too strong for Team B.A.D and this would be a great step up for her.
This would definitely open new doors for the women, as we could be set for months of excellent feuds and incredible matches to go along with them. Something the main roster has been lacking.
