WWE discussing an ALL Women show for later this year


One of the main criticism faced by the Greatest Royal Rumble event was the lack of Women talent on the show because of the cultural restrictions of Saudi Arabia.

However, it appears that the company is trying to make up for this by planning a show featuring only the female competitors for later this year.

According to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, while it’s not set in stone yet, the company Officials are seriously discussing an ALL Women show for late September or early October.

At the point, it’s unknown what kind of event it will be. It could be a network special or a mega live event something in the lines of the UK Tournament or the recent MSG show or it could even be a full-fledged PPV.

Satin also mentions that since the roster for this event is not decided yet, it’s possible that the women from NXT or even some indie talents could be a part of it.

    The problem with this is: This isn’t Shimmer. Or Shine. Or Glow. Or JPW, or the Senai Girls, etc.

    This is WWE. This is a promotion with women’s divisions. Many indie promotions don’t have women’s divisions. Companies like Shimmer were created to give women the spotlight for that exact reason. Making a “women only” WWE show is just a gimmick. It would be no different than having a “Cruiserweight only” or “Tag Team Only” event. It’s nothing terribly special.

    And I’m sorry, the fact that IF they have a WM main evented by a women’s match, it will most likely be Rousey in that mean event, is gross.

    First we had the Greatest Sexist Royal Rumble for the backwards people of the middle east, now we’re getting the Greatest Estrogen Royal Rumble for those of us in the 21st century.

    I have no issues with the womens division, but do not think it is strong enough to hold the attention of most wrestling fans.
    You have a handful of genuine “draws”, but the rest are basically just fluff to pad the division out.

    Hell, even the genuine talent who do have popularity (Becky Lynch) are often so badly handled, that a lot of fans do not care less.

    Done right, it could be fantastic, but WWE would need to invest a lot more time and effort into the division prior to this to make it a viable show.
