WWE Stephanie McMahon

Stephanie McMahon spoke with Cathy Kelley earlier on Sunday before the WWE Evolution pay-per-view event that takes place in Long Island, New York at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on the WWE Network.

In this interview, she spoke about various topics including women possibly headlining WrestleMania. This is where the daughter of WWE Chairman Vince McMahon stated that she hopes the legacy of this show will be that it’s not so groundbreaking or Earth shattering to have an all-women’s event because she wants to see their women main event WrestleMania.

“Every match at WrestleMania is a main event, but I want to see them close the show. The way they have succeeded in so many other shows.” She continued by stating that the WWE wants true gender parity and equality on the WWE roster. She added that “today is hugely important step in that mission.”

McMahon also spoke about Triple H’s influence on women’s wrestling starting with the Performance Center all the way to the main roster. She recalled him recruiting elite athletes, male and female, the same all over the world and started training the women same as the men. She gave him credit for bringing in the first-ever women’s coach, Sara Amato as well as giving women the same amount of match time at live events and on TV.

She continued, “That’s when the WWE Universe started chanting ‘women’s wrestling’ and ‘this is wrestling.’ That is really the biggest moment that gave rise to the ‘give divas a chance’ chant and hashtag that happened for WWE in 2015.”
