So I was scrolling through comments on an article I wrote for ‘Give Me Sport’ discussing Women’s wrestling in the WWE, specifically, the prospect of introducing female equivalent titles to the Intercontinental & United States Championships.
I found a fantastic comment from a user who was commenting on the status who suggested the idea of WWE producing a Women’s Wrestling Show. He suggested it would be a great addition to the WWE network and I have to agree!
The WWE Network
WWE has produced quite a lot of varied content for its network in fairness to them. It’s arguable that many people would have assumed that it would simply feature Raw, Smackdown, PPVs and past content, however, that’s not the case!
WWE has opted to include entertainment such as the reality tv series ‘Total Divas’, various shows such as the ‘Edge & Christian Show’ and ‘Ride Along’, as well as, a new animated adult cartoon series titled ”WWE Camp”.
There will, of course, be mixed opinions among fans, wrestling professionals and everyone else in the industry. In fairness, the aforementioned shows are barely related to wrestling, but the WWE is a ‘sports entertainment’ company, so it’s very difficult to draw a line with them, in terms of where the entertainment ends, and the wrestling begins.
But back to the topic at hand, I think that in line with my initial suggestions regarding the addition of new wrestling titles for the Women’s division, the inclusion of a separate show would really help to raise the status of this division, and create more of a buzz for Women’s wrestling. It already has so much momentum given recent developments such as the rebranding of the division, the new championship belt, and of course, the exciting matches and feuds we’ve seen over the past few months. The triple threat match for the Women’s championship still sticks out in my mind as one of the best matches on the card at WrestleMania.
Just a quick idea I wanted to share with you all!
