Women's wrestling has never been in a better position than it is right now.
The independent circuit is full of incredible female performers, women's-only promotions like Shimmer and Stardom are doing amazing work and female wrestlers have a good chance of main-eventing the biggest annual wrestling show in the world for the first time ever.
Another reason to be excited for the future of women's wrestling is the newly-created All Elite Wrestling, who announced that they would not only be creating a women's division, but that they would also be giving it some serious attention.
The company has already announced the signings of prominent female wrestlers such as Britt Baker, Penelope Ford and Brandi Rhodes, but they're going to need more than that to compete with the likes of WWE.
Thanks to the Mae Young Classic, it seems like every accomplished indie female wrestler in the world now works for WWE. However, some of the MYC competitors didn't sign on full-time and there are plenty of female stars who were overlooked by the tournament's bookers.
If AEW want to make good on their promise of a prominent women's division, then signing these ten performers would be a very wise move. They're talented, well-known, and, most importantly, not signed with Vince McMahon.
Here are ten of the biggest women's wrestling stars in the world who AEW need to try and sign.
