WWE’s skeleton for a women’s contest could meant even bigger things for a division
January 19, 2017 - WWE
The internet reacted with suitable expectation when WWE executive Triple H suggested indeterminate skeleton for a women’s contest styled after a UK Championship tournament to FOX Sports this week — and the one-off eventuality could be only a start of something even bigger.
We still don’t know when, where or how a aforementioned women’s contest will take place. All we know is what Triple H told us: WWE skeleton to reason such a tournament, expected this summer, depending on how a report shakes out.
Yet a timing is positively interesting, what with a Royal Rumble only days away.
Over a past few weeks, there’s been some speak opposite a Universe about a probability of a women’s Rumble. Bayley addressed a subject progressing this month, rightly indicating out there aren’t adequate women on a extended WWE register to reason a 30-person conflict royale — not yet, anyway:
“I kind of overtly consider we need a few some-more girls to do something like that since a guys have 30 men. We don’t have many girls. Even if it was Raw and Smackdown combined, we don’t consider it would make it 20. If we had some-more girls brought in, maybe like NXT girls, that would be unequivocally cold and we consider it would be a lot of fun.”
Indeed, there are somewhere between 15-18 WWE women who could be Rumble ready, depending on how we feel about some of a NXT performers and those recently sealed to a company. You’d need during slightest a dozen some-more women informed with a WWE-style ring and WWE-style production; anticipating such a vast liquid of talent overnight would be unusually difficult.
Unless, of course, we were to move a best women outward of WWE together for an epic contest (and audition, maybe?) only like Triple H has in mind.
Even if that doesn’t meant a women’s Rumble, there are large possibilities for WWE after a women’s tournament. We’ve seen a women block off inside Hell in a Cell and under Ironman rules. Could a women’s Elimination Chamber be next? A women’s Money In The Bank? Women’s tab group champions for Raw and SmackDown Live? A women’s Queen of a Ring? A women’s Night of Champions?
We wish so, since each of those ideas sounds extraordinary — and with potentially even some-more women on a roster, WWE can govern those ideas with some required variety, instead of pitting a same dozen superstars opposite any other.
Maybe a women’s contest will be a once-in-a-lifetime event. But if WWE wants to spin a summer devise into something grand, as they did with a cruiserweights after a Classic, a event is there.
