WWE’s Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon spoke exclusively to SkySports about WWE’s first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view event, WWE Evolution (10/28).
During the discussion, Stephanie spoke at length about the path to women being the sole focus of a WWE show, from the #GiveDivasaChance movement to the signing of Ronda Rousey. She spoke about trailblazers in women’s wrestling, from the Fabulous Moolah and Mae Young to Wendi Richter, Alundra Blaze, Chyna and Trish Stratus.
She also touched upon a few newsworthy topics, including the possibility of women main eventing WrestleMania one day and the rumor that WWE will soon introduce Women’s Tag Team Championships.
Stephanie on Women Main Eventing WrestleMania
As soon as Ronda Rousey wrestled her first WWE match earlier this year (teaming with Kurt Angle against Stephanie and Triple H), fans were buzzing that it was only a matter of time before Rousey was main eventing WrestleMania against someone like Charlotte Flair.
Stephanie sounds optimistic that we’re not far off from such a scenario.
“God I hope not far! We’re certainly making strides and changes are happening every single day. They can’t happen fast enough for me – but we’ve definitely seen positive momentum and moves towards that.”
WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships
It’s been rumored for months that WWE will soon be introducing Women’s Tag Team Championships. Self proclaimed “Human Belt Encyclopedia” @BeltFanDan has tweeted that the belts are already created – and have white straps, similar to the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships.
Women's Tag Belts: White leather. Similar to the men's tags but with some slight female themed changes. Not confirmed but rumored to be defended among all 4 brands (Raw, SD, NXT and eventually NXT:UK). The new NXT UK belts are not done yet.

Stephanie acknowledged the rumor of Women’s Tag Team Championships and said WWE would like to jumpstart a women’s tag team division ‘as soon as they are able to.’
“Not quite yet but that’s absolutely something we’ve heard loud and clear from our fan base and it’s something we’re keen on implementing as soon as we are able to.”
Stephanie also commented on whether she will be getting in the ring at WWE Evolution, joking, “that has yet to be determined.”
