A Brief History Of #WomensWrestling
On the February 23rd, 2015 episode of RAW, a thirty-second match between The Bella Twins and Paige & Emma inspired frustrated fans to create the hashtag #GiveDivasAChance on Twitter.
This was the beginning of a social media movement that pushed the WWE to evolve with the times.
Here is a description of the supporting role Work of Wrestling played:
"A quick shuffle through The Work of Wrestling archive will open the door to pro wrestling analysis like you’ve never heard before. An examination of the complexities of characters like Bret Hart or Kevin Owens. The representative power possessed by wrestling action figures. A deconstruction of CM Punk’s pipe bomb promo.
And then, there’s #WomensWrestling.
Amidst the groundswell of the #GiveDivasAChance social media movement last spring, Kail took to the internet airwaves to expose the flawed logic of the well intentioned hashtag. Requesting WWE give its female performers the chance to excel on a level equal to male performers falsely implied that is was WWE’s chance to give in the first place. A request, explained Kail, can be denied.
Rather than further empowering WWE, Kail chose to begin a movement of his own, one that placed the emphasis on the talented female performers the pro wrestling community so desperately wanted elevated in the first place – and #WomensWrestling was born."
On April 3rd, 2016 at WrestleMania 32, the WWE unveiled the WWE Women's Championship and officially dropped the term "Diva" from its main roster programming. Professional wrestling fans and talented pro-wrestlers and storytellers worked incredibly hard to make this necessary transition a reality. Charlotte, Sasha Banks, and Becky Lynch stole the show at WrestleMania, ushering in the new WWE main roster Women's Division.
This page shall remain as a chronicle of the origins of this movement.
What follows is how the page was originally used as a hub for informing the fanbase about the movement and its protocols:
On May 11, 2015 #WomensWrestling reached the top ten trends in the world following Monday Night Raw. The next morning it continued to trend, topping off at number three in the world. Ever since, many passionate fans have consistently expressed their desire for equity in the WWE and for #WomensWrestling to be featured prominently in the company.
Mick Foley, Sasha Banks, Charlotte, and others have joined in. Even Triple H eventually RT'd a #WomensWrestling Tweet. And following Sasha Banks & Bayley's historic Ironwoman Match at NXT Take Over Respect on October 7th 2015, Stephanie McMahon embraced the term.
The Full Sail University crowd also chanted #WomensWrestling during the main event.
