WWE's women are coasting at an all-time high velocity, and never was it more evident than during Sunday night's Money in the Bank event, revealing a ladder match between six of SmackDown Live's leading ladies which showcased their depth across both brands.

At WWE NXT Heatwave, three exciting matches delivered this momentum to fans and should help showcase a new wave of women's stars for the division. Speaking on Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry had a positive take for these gifted performers.

It's not just bright, it is sunny Henry said of the future. But at NXT Heatwave, I thought we saw a women's division that those ladies are growing, too. There is about six [or] eight of them; they are right two now.

Division Defies Absences

The division has managed to survive and grow despite missing major stars such as Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch.

Rhea Ripley's surprise return to "WWE Raw" after a few months off added another layer of intrigue, giving greater depth to the women in wrestling trend. Henry thinks the department is so strong that it could easily anchor its own series.

'You'll get plenty of airtime,' Henry declared. Now you're getting onto Netflix. Just do it. You give them another vehicle to make money, and you more people happy which at the end of the day makes hard not ot think about going anywhere else as a bandwagon for technology growth." This past Saturday's premium live event marked a major milestone for Tiffany Stratton, as the former NXT Women's Champion captured the Women's Money in the Bank briefcase that may lead to even bigger things down the road.

In other action at Heatwave, NXT Women's Champion Roxanne Perez retained her title with a win over Lola Vice Klani Jordan also defended the North American Title against SOL RUCA. These are very much the latest indications of a dynamic, evolving story in WWE's women's division that has plenty to look forward to with its wrestlers and bright young stars ahead.

Nowhere will the growth of that division be better highlighted than in capturing ever more attention, validating Mark Henry's optimist remarks and setting a new standard for women's wrestling everywhere.
