Stephanie McMahon, the Chief Branding Officer at WWE, spoke with CNBC about women in sports.
In the interview she spoke about the women wrestlers in her company and the women’s revolution which ultimately led to the first ever Wrestlemania main event involving female wrestlers.
“Women are great for business! Actually, for the first time in 35 years, our women main evented Wrestlemania, which is akin to our SuperBowl, at Metlife stadium in front of 82,000 people and it was incredible.”
She spoke about how women’s wrestling in the company has changed for the better. The McMahon scion also acknowledged that the fans had a big role in it.
“There’s been this whole movement in WWE that we called ‘The women’s evolution’. Our women are now called superstars, same as the men. But it’s all because of a movement that our fans started. It was called ‘give divas a chance’ and it trended worldwide for 3 days. Our audience specifically demanded more athleticism, better character development, better storylines and longer matches. We just gave them what they wanted and our women have been stealing the show every single opportunity that they get. We still have a long way to go but we are taking it head on!”
