WWE Women's wrestling has really gone through many phases since its birth, phases in which women were rejected by the public, phases in which they were supported and acclaimed, phases in which they were just an attraction, and the phase we are experiencing now, that of growth.
Yes, it's true that women's wrestling has made a lot of progress, but the road ahead is still long and full of obstacles to overcome, obstacles that are characterized mainly by prejudice. Two phrases that are often heard among wrestling fans or those involved in bringing content on the subject are: "Female wrestling does not make any ratings" and "Female wrestling does not make money."
WWE promotes the Women's division
Due to copyright laws, footage of Big Cass and Enzo Amore’s pre-match segment has been removed from the WWE Network version of SummerSlam 2016.
Cass added that he and Amore thanked Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens backstage following their match. Shortly thereafter, Triple H interrupted the duo and explained why they were not allowed to sing without permission. Starting from the last episode of SmackDown, just to go in chronological order, we had at the beginning the segment of the signing of the contract for the Wrestlemania Backlash I Quit Match between Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair, which ended in a fight, which is typical of these segments.
Well, this segment achieved an impressive 2.4 million views on WWE's official YouTube channel, almost triple that of any other video dedicated to last Friday's episode of the blue show. Instead, if we pass to Raw, the segment dedicated to the return of Asuka, which also involves Becky Lynch, former champion of the brand, has achieved 1.1 million views, second only to the great main event of the evening.
Although many fans enjoyed it, Bully Ray, on the latest episode of Busted Open Radio, said: "After last night, I don't want to see what happens with Becky and Asuka next week. It didn't catch my attention. It didn't catch my attention.
I know what to say. If we exclude how beautiful the women were and how great it was to see Asuka as a fan again, it didn't take me." Obviously, Bully Ray's is a personal comment, everyone can think what he wants, but the sure thing is that the WWE women are doing great and the fans really appreciate it in general.
The results collected for the NXT videos are also excellent, with two female matches being the two most viewed videos of the episode on YouTube.
