On 28 October 2018, WWE held its first ever all-women pay-per-view, Evolution. Despite some criticism concerning buildup and booking, the show was considered a resounding success.
Along with the show's positive reception, the two most over wrestlers on the main roster are Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey. There are rumors that the greatly anticipated match between the two will main event WrestleMania 35.
Women's wrestling is clearly going places, and its current rate of progression means it's inevitable that in the near future, at least half the matches on a given card will feature women. Women main-eventing will no longer be an anomaly.
These developments will lead to more opportunities and the potential for an expanded women roster. Fortunately, there is no shortage of talented female performers to choose from. Several countries have successful all women promotions which are helping to cultivate the next generation of talent. In America, Shimmer in particular has a solid track record of producing future WWE stars. Which women outside the company should be next to join them?
