Backstage news on why WWE called up 5 women to main roster this week

Paige with NXT Stars

One of the most surprising things coming out of WWE Programming this week was the main roster debut of not one but 5 female NXT Stars on both Raw and SmackDown Live.

Their debut surprised fans as there were no reports about any of these stars being called up and people were left speculating why WWE decided to bring all these women onto the main roster only 24 hours apart.

Now a report from Pro Wrestling Sheet has shed some light on the situation and revealed that it was Vince McMahon’s decision to promote all these women.

According to the site, Vince believed that the Women’s Division on both the shows had gone stale and these surprise debuts were a way to bring a new life to them.

Though the Boss reportedly made this call shortly after Mae Young Classic Tournament so these debuts had been at work for a while and they¬† weren’t a last minute decision.
