WWE should introduce female referees to shake things up

It is no secret that yet another year has gone by where those in charge at WWE have proved to give very little thought to the talented Divas on their roster.

The Divas Revolution which took place earlier this year was unquestionably the highlight for the Divas Division of 2015, and was supposedly intended to be the turning point.

For some time, this was the case as the likes of Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch made the jump from NXT and brought something fresh and exciting to the Divas on the main roster.

As for Charlotte, she has certainly proved her worth since progressing to the top of WWE by winning the WWE Divas Championship Title.

This merge between the new NXT Divas and those such as The Bella Twins and Paige, who were the leading female names on the roster, seems to have fallen apart and for many members of the WWE Universe, become forgotten about.

Plausible idea 

With this in mind, there is something which WWE could do in order to promote the face of the females at WWE without question; introduce a number of female referees.

At present, there seems to be no reason why female officials are not used at the company, with referees as a whole often receiving a lot less attention than some years ago.

There was a time when professional wrestling involved more focus for the officials, instead of them just being seen as a necessary addition to the ring.

Take Charles Robinson for example, he has been a professional wrestling referee for coming up to 20 years now and, aside from the devoted WWE fans who will already know his name, he seems to have faded into the background of WWE programming.

WWE really has lost its way with its officials and this is hugely disappointing given the fact that for as long as the company continues with its success, it will heavily rely on the inclusion of a number of suitable referees.

With regard to introducing female referees, there have been other wrestling organisations who have introduced the use of a female referee, with no hesitation.

No discrimination 

Ultimately, having a female official in the ring would bring about a significant amount of respect from the WWE Universe should they be presented in the right way.

There have been several occasions where WWE Divas have been used as special guest referees and have worn skimpy attire which entirely detracted from the importance of promoting a female official.

Instead, the company should look to have them wear exactly the same uniform as the current male WWE referees do, and have them treated in the same way.

After all, there are presumably many women who have high hopes of one day becoming a WWE referee, but with no role model to lead the way it unfortunately becomes difficult to imagine their hopes ever becoming a reality.
